Biometric Time Recording


Size: 8.85 in (22.3 cm) wide
11.65 in (29.6 cm) high
8.55 in (21.7 cm) deep

A camera capture an image of the hand, with the help of a mirror to get also the edge. The silhouette of the hand is extracted, and some geometrical characteristics stored.

When it comes to buddy-punching (When one employee clocks in for another), no other biometric solution compares to hand geometry. Hand Punches have been known to pay for themselves within 6 to 9 months, making them an ideal solution to a business that is losing money due to employee payroll fraud.

If you are tired of replacing costly badges due to employees losing them or leaving them at home, our Hand Punch solution for time & attendance can solve that problem. With your hand being your badge, your employee has nothing to lose or forget. A simple swipe of the hand and they are clocked in and ready to work.


Our biometric hand geometry readers simultaneously analyze more than 31,000 points and instantaneously records more than 90 separate measurements of an individual's hand-including length, width, thickness and surface area-to verify that the person using the device is really who he or she claims to be. The HandReader compares this information with a "template" of the individual's hand that has previously been stored in the reader, on a server or on a card. Once the person has been identified as a valid user, a door can be opened, access can be provided, or time recorded. The reading and verification process takes less than a second with impeccable reliability.
