How the Facial Recognition Clocking System Works

Clocking Methods

The C400 uses biometric facial recognition to register employees’ attendance. Face recognition is fool-proof, non-touch and fully secure, leaving you confident in the knowledge that employees cannot clock each other in and out. The C400 face clocking machine also supports proximity clocking via badge or fob. Each attendance event is accompanied by an audible and visual message to confirm success. To compliment the C400’s biometric security, a personal PIN can also be used. The ClockRite system has the capacity for up to 16 attendance clockings per employee per day.

Initial Registration

Registering a biometric facial profile is extremely quick and easy through a guided process at the clocking in machine. During the registration process the user’s face is recorded at different heights and distances in order to build a reliable reference for future clocking events. This ensures that clocking events are swift, efficient, and accurate, even with a large number of users. All facial profiles are stored as a unique mathematical algorithm, ensuring data security. The C400 has the capacity for as many as 800 staff.

Clocking In and Out

Once registered, users can clock in and out quickly and easily. Recognition is almost instantaneous, and each clocking takes no more than a couple of seconds in normal operation:

  1. A user stands in front of the clocking terminal
  2. The C400’s face recognition camera matches the user’s face against their profile
  3. The clocking is confirmed through on-screen and audio messages

Data Storage and Download

Clocking data is stored on the C400 face recognition clock in machine until downloaded via LAN, USB, or optional WiFi. Once downloaded, individual time sheets can be calculated and displayed in detailed reports. Attendance and payroll data is then stored securely on your PC or server.

Are there any monthly fees or ongoing costs?

No, we do not charge monthly fees or subscriptions. Quoted prices assume that you'll be installing the system yourself and include the following:

  • Hardware
  • Software
  • Free delivery (UK mainland)
  • 12 months unlimited UK support

If you'd like to have your system installed by one of our engineers please get in touch for installation prices in your area.

After the first 12 months we'll invite you to renew your support contract with us. This is entirely optional, and you can take out a new support contract with us at any point in the future if you choose not to renew after the first 12 months. We do not charge an ongoing licence fee for the ClockRite software, and you'll still have access to your system regardless of whether or not you choose to renew.

How long is the warranty?

All clocking systems are supplied with a 12 month hardware warranty and 12 months software support. After this period you may choose to renew your support contract with us, thereby extending your system support and hardware warranty for a further 12 months.

How easy is the face clocking process?

Staff simply stand in front of the C400’s face recognition camera. Recognition is almost instantaneous, and in normal operation staff members can register a clocking in around two seconds.

Why choose face clocking?

The popularity of facial recognition clocking solutions has grown significantly in recent years. Facial recognition carries all the biometric security advantages of a fingerprint system while also being completely contactless, making it ideal for any working environment. The clocking process is swift, simple, and entirely foolproof, proving popular with staff members and ensuring peace of mind for administrators. Facial recognition technology is also becoming common in mobile phones and other personal gadgets, meaning staff are increasingly likely to be familiar with the concept.

Can we control access to the terminal?

All ClockRite terminals feature a top-level administration menu that can only be accessed with a special RFID proximity ‘admin card’. Individual users can also be assigned permissions-based roles, allowing them to perform specified actions depending on their responsibilities.

Can we control access to the software?

The ClockRite Software supports permissions-based login profiles, ensuring users can only access the information they need to carry out their responsibilities. Security is ensured through the use of individual PINs.

Does the clocking machine have a DLST setting?

All clocking machines are supplied with our custom firmware and switches to and from Daylight Saving Time automatically.

Can I export data to my payroll system?

We support direct integration into Sage Payroll. For other payroll programs our main reports export to Microsoft Excel for quick and easy input.

Can we connect a bell to the clocking system?

A bell ringing system can be incorporated into the clocking system as long as the maximum load passing through the clocking machine does not exceed 12V DC / 1A. The terminal does not supply voltage to the bell(s), instead acting as a switch to sound the bell(s) at defined times. Please let us know if you’d like to discuss bell ringing requirements in detail.

Our business has more than one site, how would that work?

Clocking data can be downloaded from multiple sites into a centralised database subject to a handful of conditions (sites require a static IP address, for example). Many of our customers operate a multi-site clocking system, and we’d be happy to discuss your specific needs in detail.

How many computers can we install the software on?

Every system allows for software installation on 2 PCs as standard. Additional software seats can be purchased at any time.
(A shared network drive or folder is required for multi-pc installation)

What’s the WiFi range?

WiFi range is generally similar to that of a mobile phone, laptop, or other WiFi capable device. Range is largely dependent on the signal strength of your wireless router, and can be affected by the construction of your building or nearby appliances. When considering an installation location for the wireless clocking machine a good rule of thumb is to ensure that your mobile phone can receive a consistent signal. If it can, the clocking machine should have no trouble gaining a connection too.

My staff are different heights, how will the clocking machine see them all?

The face recognition terminal is installed at an angle, giving it a wide field of view and allowing it to recognise staff of varying heights. Shorter staff members simply stand closer to the terminal, while taller colleagues stand a little further away.

How is facial profile data stored?

The C400 converts each staff member’s face profile into a secure mathematical algorithm. No image of the face is stored, and the algorithm cannot be reverse engineered.
