Thinking about a fingerprint time clock? Don't do it! TimePilot has a better solution
Clocking in with a fingerprint sounds great, right? It's easy, inexpensive (no more time cards!) and you can't cheat. But fingerprint-based systems have plenty of downside,too:
1. They can make you sick by spreading viruses and germs.
2. They can get you sued if you don't follow complicated new data privacy laws. (In 2021, two major companies agreed to pay $686 million to settle biometric-related court cases just in Illinois. Learn more...)
3. They're high-maintenance. Lotion, grease or dirt on a person's hand can smear the sensor's glass, making it difficult for others to clock in or out.
4. They may not work for some people who have fingerprints that are especially difficult to read: bricklayers and roofers (because their fingerprints are worn down), secretaries (because they handle a lot of paper), cancer patients (a side effect of chemotherapy drugs) and older people (their skin is less elastic).
TimePilot has a better idea: iButtons
Each employee clocks in and out by tapping the clock with an iButton: a key-sized device that fits on a keychain and contains a microchip with a unique ID number. The stainless steel button is rugged, unaffected by dirt or liquids, never wears out and only the metal button touches the clock.
The result: No biometric headaches.
TimePilot has an iButton time clock for every need:
