New time clock software incorporates facial recognition
12 March, 2012
FingerTec USA has expanded its line of fingerprint time clock software systems with the Face ID 3, which utilizes facial recognition capability.
Face ID 3 is a contact-free computer timeclock that can be used in business or home environments. The system weighs about four pounds and uses facial recognition plus a network of infrared scanners for a surface texture analysis (STA) algorithm.
The algorithm takes a skinprint from an area of a user’s face and mathematically deconstructs it to create a recognizable pattern for the individual. FingerTec says the combination of facial recognition and the STA algorithm increase accuracy by up to 25%.
The Face ID 3 can store information on up to 4,000 users. It incorporates a color touchscreen, receipt printing and voice command options. Administrators can add multiple verification methods including passwords and card scans. The scanner comes with software to enable remote management and report generation, and the system can be used across multiple time zones. It’s available in over eight languages, including Spanish, Chinese, Arabic and Russian.
