Usng Biometrics



The Network Clock is primarily used to clock in and out. The clock also offers a System Menu which can be used to configure the device and access other functions. This article covers how to enable Biometrics.

 

 

Biometrics can be enabled or disabled using the system menu.  This can be useful when connecting external biometric devices, such as the hand reader.  Also, it can be useful for testing when biometrics are not needed. When you select "Auto" the clock will look for any connected biometric device and will attempt to activate it. If the menu goes back to None, the biometric device could not be detected or initialized.

If a clock has an internal biometric device (fingerprint reader) and an external one (hand reader), the external one will get priority and will be used instead of the internal one.

Starting from the Main Screen, simply press enter without entering a badge number to enter the system menu. Then, go down to "Use Biometrics" and press Enter.
