Getting Started Guide

Setting up users

When setting up users we strongly recommend you create the users in the software first then in the terminal itself.
The reason for this is that if you enroll details against a 'User ID' on the terminal (Lets use the example of ID no 123) but someone assigns this ID to another user in the software before they download the users or realise that you have used that ID number then this can cause a conflict.
If you do create the users at the terminal before setting them up in the software they can be downloaded in the software but you cannot enter name details at the terminal so their name will need to be corrected in the software then uploaded again to the terminal.

If your device is only going to be used with a USB drive and not connected directly to the software then you can print your user list from the software so that you know which ID numbers to enroll for which users.
You can also download the user database from one terminal and upload it to another using the USB so that users do not have to re enroll their fingerprints, cards or pins at the other terminals.

When you use the USB method you will not have the option to show the user names on the terminal. You can only match ID numbers to people and then have the names of those people in the software.
When using a network connection you will be able to get the names of your employees to appear on the terminal. You can also setup users at the terminal or enroll existing users details as follows:

  • Press the 'MENU' button

 

  • Once in the menu you choose the following:

  2. You can use the arrow keys to move to the 'User' option if its not already highlighted. Then press 'OK' to select it.
  3. You can press the '1' one key to enter directly to the 'User' menu.
  • Once you press 'OK' you will be in the following menu.

  • Select the following:
  1. The option you want is to 'Enroll' a user. Enrolling will allow you to assign a fingerprint, card or pin code to a user. If you have an EC-50 then the fingerprint option will not be displayed. This should be the default option highlighted. If it is then just press 'OK' to open it.
  2. If you need to move to the 'Enroll' option the you can use the arrow keys. Then press 'OK' to enter the 'Enroll' menu.

  2. If you have an EC-500 then you will see the 'Fingerprint' option. If you have an EC-50 then you will not see this option as yours is a proximity/pin only device.
  3. You will have the option to enroll a proximity card. See below for more details about each method.
  4. You will see the 'Password' option which is for the 'Pin Code'. See below for full details on enrolling each of these options.

Once the users are enrolled on the terminal they can then begin clocking in and out.

They do not need to enter their ID number unless they are using 'Pin Codes'.

The times will be saved on the terminal and can be uploaded to the software using network connect or USB.
