5 Things to Look For Before you Pick Biometric Attendance System for your Office

by Eureka Forbes Owner
Keeping track of your employee’s work hours can be a big hassle in today’s world. Thankfully, many companies offer Biometric Systems that monitor the activity of your staff in real time. Here are five important things that you should look for, in any Biometric Attendance System.

Biometric security systems are the attendance sheets of today’s new technological age. With the facility to monitor your employee’s work hours in real time, you can easily keep track of their progress. Biometric systems allow you to secure high tension areas as well, by allowing access to only a select group of predetermined people. These systems offer a variety of functions and features that help you maintain a proper record of everybody’s attendance, here are five factors you need to keep in mind while selecting a biometric security attendance system for your institution.

1- Fingerprint Capacity

Each biometric system is designed with a predetermined capacity of fingerprints in mind. This count dictates the number of fingerprints a system can recognise without running out of memory. Hence, you should look for a biometric system that can support the total count of your employees to get the full benefit of it. The best is that you go for one that can at least store 1000 user fingerprints.

2- Optical Sensor DPI

The DPI of an optical sensor stands for “Dots Per Inch", and it dictates the ability of your sensor to recognise biometric scans easily and efficiently. A sensor with a higher DPI will perform considerably better when compared to the one with a lower DPI. Hence, a biometric attendance system with higher DPI sensor will more likely be the right choice for your institution. Any device with 500 DPI or a more powerful sensor is a safe option.

3- Transaction/Operational Capacity

Every biometric system has a predetermined amount of operations that it can carry out before it runs out of memory. Operational Capacity of a biometric system can usually range from 50,000 to 2,00,000 easily. Depending on your number of employees that will use the scan daily, you can select a biometric system with low or high transaction capacity.

4- Communication

Most Biometric systems are designed to transmit data either over Wi-Fi, GPRS or a wired connection. This connection to the web will help you monitor the performance of your biometric scan remotely with just an administrator password. Thus, if you want to access your data remotely, then you should opt for a system with built in connectivity options.

5- CPU

Like most of your PCs out there, biometric scans rely on CPUs to carry out their memory functions. A good CPU with high processing power will help your biometric system perform flawlessly, as it will be able to process requests at a faster pace. Thus, CPU power is something that you should consider if you suspect your biometric system to experience heavy usage and extreme processing load.

When seeking a new biometric system for your institution, the above-stated factors will help you select the right machine depending on your security needs. The system you choose should be able to support your daily employee attendance load without any hiccups.
