Biometric Technology and Its Secured Attributes

Published on 28 July 15

Almost each and every organization keeps a careful vigilance over the entry and exit times of employees. Initially, this was managed manually. But the possibility of errors was high in case the number of employees is large. Moreover, if any employee tries to take advantage of manual entry, it can be done easily. To curb all these issues, the only solution is to have systemized tracking software. Fingerprint time attendance is the ideal way to monitor all such activities without any discrepancies. It is also a fact that on the basis of this tracking system, HR dispatches salary of the workforce.

How does fingerprint time attendance works?

A fingerprint time attendance works on a technology that is better known as biometric system. There is a scanner which takes the image of your fingerprints and keeps a record of the data. Every time when you place that particular finger, the software recognizes the unique pattern of the finger and permits your entry as well tracks the entry time. If the system does not recognize the pattern of ridges and valleys as per the pre-scanned images, then the fingerprint time attendance access system with data recording operation denies entrance of the employee at your office.

The software basically filters and saves only specific characteristics that are unique to every fingerprint in form of an encrypted biometric key or mathematical representation. Hence, the images are not recorded; rather a binary code is used for the process of verification. The chance of fingerprint duplication is not possible as the algorithm cannot be converted.

What are the other attributes?

Biometric technology has special attributes that can secure any form of personal information and only the owner of the data can access it through his or her physiological or behavioral characteristics. Apart from the fingerprints, the technology can even save the code of face, iris, retinal veins, hand geometry, handwriting and voice. Thus, keeping a note of the time is not only easy but it is even safer as the technology curtails all the possibilities of time theft in an organization.

So, if you are planning to install one fingerprint time attendance access system for your organization, the options can make you confused because there are plenty in the market. However, you need to understand your requirements and select one that meets your interest.

  • It should provide you accurate time and help you in taking important organization decisions.
  • It must be secured and have anti-spoofing capabilities
  • It should be easy to use and highly cost effective.

Why go for biometric technology?

Now, you may ask what makes biometric technology special. Well, you do not have to carry any cards and you can even avoid all those concerns related to identity cards misplacement. Moreover, the chance of guessing a password is easy but that does not apply for fingerprints because every human being has their own unique pattern. Most importantly, you can't forget your fingerprints like you can forget a password.

So, automate your attendance recording framework by incorporating biometric technology and maintain an accurate data.
