More about proximity time clocks
With proximity time clocks, employees clock by waving a badge.
It works using radio frequencies. When the badge (or card) is in proximity to the clock, the clock reads the ID and records the time. Employees just have to wave it close enough for the clock to read.
It's probably the fastest way for employees to clock in, with the added bonus of touch-less. No paper card to mess with, no buttons to push, no failing finger reader, it just works.
Some time clock terminals have both biometrics and proximity readers. With that, for example, you can verify a badge swipe by touching your finger to the sensor. Or if the reliability of the finger sensor is less than perfect, you can have employees use their badge instead.
Because proximity clocks are so easy, we highly recommend them. Use them if employees are supervised as they clock in, or if buddy punching is not a concern. Use them too, if your risk of storing biometric data is high, or if employees push back on using biometric clocks.
