Time & Attendance

fingerprints

Biometric time and attendance systems work by measuring features of the body that are unique to each person, and thus offer greater accuracy in attendance tracking and access control.

How can biometrics improve your time and attendance recording?  

i Security can incorporate a range of biometric devices into your time and attendance system.  These can be used as the sole means of registering attendance, or used to verify identity in combination with a swipe or fob card which must be used to gain access to pre-approved areas.

Key Benefits of Biometric Time and Attendance

  • Prevents the borrowing of cards to gain access to controlled areas
  • Reduces time and attendance fraud, prevents ‘buddy clocking’ – where one employee clocks on for another
  • Can be used for identity verification – to ensure that the person using the card is the person authorised to use it
  • Protects employees’ security – copies of fingerprints are not stored and cannot be retrieved from the terminals

Our biometric systems store only fingerprint templates, not actual fingerprints, protecting individual as well as improving security.

Paxton Access Control

Paxton Access manufacture two types of access control system:

Standalone access control.

This type of system may be used to control access on one or many independent doors in a building. Access is gained by using a numeric code, or PIN with a keypad, or by presenting a proximity or magstripe token, depending on which type of reader is fitted.

These systems are programmed at each door. If tokens need to be barred or codes changed, this action must be completed at every door on the system.

Typical applications

  • Small business premises
  • Sports clubs
  • Storage units
  • Any small or medium sized site requiring access control
Standalone systems are great for smaller sites with a relatively small number of users, token management is simple, and the system can be extended easily as your requirements change.

PC based access control.

Referred to as ‘PC based’ or ‘Networked’ access control, these systems may be used to control one or many doors in a building. Access is gained by using a numeric code, or PIN with a keypad, by presenting a proximity or magstripe token or by ‘possesion’ with hands free tokens depending on which type of reader is fitted. PC based access control offers central control, via a network.

This means that commands given at the PC are sent to each of the doors. A token can be barred from all of the doors instantly. Another benefit of this type of system is flexible control, allowing you to grant different permissions for individuals or groups of users.

Reports may also be generated to see who went where and when. Many systems allow control of additional buildings via existing LAN/WAN. PC based systems are increasingly being used to control other services within buildings, for example intruder alarms, fire doors, lifts and lighting.

Typical applications

  • Small/medium premises
  • Large corporate premises
  • Multiple-site premises
  • Government buildings
  • Universities
  • Sports clubs
  • Car parks
PC based systems are great for medium to large sites as they make managing large numbers of doors and users easy. The system can be extended very easily, and advanced features such as event reporting and integration with CCTV and other systems make such a system much more than just a replacement for a bunch of keys.
