More about fingerprint time clocks
With fingerprint time clocks, employees clock by touching a sensor.
It works by first registering the finger of each employee. This will record a digital equivalent of their fingerprint (not a photo). Then once registered, the employee simply places their finger on the sensor to clock in.
The biggest advantage is preventing buddy punching. It's very unlikely an employee can clock in for another or try to trick the system.
Another advantage is simplicity. It doesn't required a badge, RFID card, or paper time card that can be forgotten, lost, or damaged.
For most use cases they work fine. However it may not work well for some employees. For example, if an employee has thin fingerprints, the reader may not recognize them. If you have trouble, be sure the sensor is clean, the finger is clean, and the employee places their full fingerprint on the sensor.
Also be aware of any state laws about using biometric time clocks. The lead state is Illinois which opened the door to lawsuits on businesses. So make sure you stay compliant to your local laws. This may include getting written approval from your employees before registering their finger, and a policy that states you will delete their biometric data at the end of employment.
