Low Cost Barcode

All data Capture Terminals can be fitted with a fully integrated barcode reader, allowing for a reliable but low cost badge to be issued to employees.

Badges can be designed and the barcode created utilising the ELF ID badge design software and printed either to a standard printer with plain paper and then laminated or alternatively to a PVC card printer. The badge could then double up as a security ID card.


Proximity enables employees to clock in and out of attendance without even having to make contact with the integrated reader. This type of media is especially suited to harsh environments where debris would prevent barcoded cards being read.

Proximity cards are standard "credit card" size and can be printed in full colour using a PVC card printer, allowing for the card to be used as a security ID card. The same card could also be used for Access Control and also a company vending card (I-Class).

Fingerprint Recognition

Fingerprint sensors work by taking a snapshot of a fingerprint and producing an image. From the image a fingerprint recognition algorithm extracts the unique features of each fingerprint and saves them as a template.

For fingerprint identification, features of an input fingerprint are compared to the features of the fingerprint templates in the database. By comparing the similarity between two feature sets, it is decided whether the two fingerprints match or not. More importantly using this method NO individuals fingerprint is stored in the database, Therefore ilimanating the risk of biometric idenity theft


Remove any chance of "buddy" clocking, this method requests either a PIN number or card swipe then validation by the employee fingerprint. The fingerprint is then compared to the template and employee pin number or card swipe.

Once the employees identification has been verified, this information can be passed to the Ceequel® software for processing where the employees attendance can be logged.


The employee simply places their finger in the reader and within 1 second the employee is identified and clocked into attendance.

Fingerprint data is stored as a mathematical algorithm and cannot be used for any purpose other than identifying the employee for data collection purposes.

Biometric ID


NOW in use at over 50 locations!

Biometric authentication refers to technologies that measure and analyze human physical characteristics for authentication purposes. Examples of this include fingerprints, eye retinas and irises, facial patterns and hand measurements.

Advantages of Biometrics

  • Biometric traits cannot be lost or forgotten (while clockcards can)
  • Biometric traits are difficult to copy, share and distribute (clockcards can be passed to colleagues for 'buddy clocking')
  • They require the person being authenticated to be present at the time and point of authentication

Moreover biometric systems can be used in conjunction with passwords or tokens, thus improving the security of existing systems without replacing them.

Hand Recognition

HandReaders simultaneously analyse 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.

Facial Recognition

Facial recognition is fast becoming one of the most effective ways to securely register the attendance of your employees, providing not only a foolproof method of clocking in, but also providing the optional ability to take snapshots for future reference. Employees stand 45cm-70cm away from the terminal to complete authentication in less than one second and require no training prior to using terminals.
