Verification Modes

The terminal (time clock) allows you to change the way in which people can clock on or off.
This is known as the 'Verification modes'
Example if you have fingerprints enrolled and a proximity card and a pin code for the user you can still specify certain requirements for them to clock in. If you set it to only use fingerprint then even if the other options where enrolled then they are ignored.

 

Full details regarding the verification types is listed below.

  1. Press the 'MENU' button if you are not already in the menu.

 

Once in the 'Main Menu'

 

  1. Use the arrow buttons to move to the 'Settings' menu.
  2. Once highlighted press 'OK' to enter the menu. You can also just press the '2' two button to enter the 'Settings' menu directly.

 

From the settings menu we need to access the 'Advanced' settings.

 

  1. Use the arrow buttons to move to the 'Advanced' settings.
  2. Once highlighted press the 'OK' button to enter the 'Advanced' settings. You can press the '2' two button to enter the 'Advanced' menu directly.

 

Once in the 'Advanced' menu you can select the 'Verification Mode'

 

  1. Use the arrow buttons to move to the 'Verification Mode' option.
  2. Once highlighted you can press 'OK' to enter the edit mode.

 

Once you are in the edit mode:

 

  1. Use the up and down arrow to change the verification method.
  2. Select what verification method you want based on the options below. Once you are happy with the Verification mode then press 'OK' to confirm your settings and exit the edit mode.

 

NOTE: When choosing the verification methods you are selecting which methods this clock can accept. This applies to all employees who use that terminal.

 

NOTE: Options with the | between them mean either of those options. Options with a + sign mean both are required.

 

Verification Methods:

 

FP|RF|PIN - This option means that you can use any method to clock in including Fingerprint (FP) Proximity Card (RF) or Pin Code (PIN). This is the default option. Its usually best to leave this as the option. The employees can still only use the data they have enrolled to clock in and out but this means if you have an employee who's fingerprints cannot be read then you can use the proximity card or pin option.

 

NOTE: The EC-50 model does not have the Fingerprint (FP) options as it is a proximity card and pin code machine only.

 

FP - This option (Only available in the EC-500 model) means that only fingerprints can be used and no other enrolled data (proximity cards or pins) can be used to clock in and out. This would mean that even if you enrolled a pin code for an employee they could not use this to clock in and out.

 

RF+FP - This option means that both a proximity card and a fingerprint are required each time the user clocks in and out. One method on its own will not work the employee will need to swipe the card and place their finger. (This option includes fingerprints and is therefore only available on the EC-500 model and not the EC-50)

 

RF - This option means that only Proximity Cards can be used and no other enrolled data can be used. If you enroll a pin code for an employee it cannot be used and will be ignored.

 

ID+FP - This option would mean that the employee would have to key in their ID number and then place their finger. Just placine their finger would not be accepted they would have to tell the terminal their user ID before they scan their finger.

 

ID+PIN - This option would mean that the employee must key in their user ID number and then their pin code. This is similar to just using a PIN code because whenever an employee uses a pin code even if other options are available they would need to key in their user ID so the system knows who's pin code it is.

 

RF+PIN - This would mean that the user would need to swipe their proximity card then enter a pin. One option on its own would not work they would need to use both.

 

FP+PIN - This option (only available on EC-500) would mean that the user would have to scan their finger then also key in their pin code. Both options must be used one on its own would not work.

 

FP+RF+PIN - This option (only available on EC-500) would mean that the user would have to scan their finger then swipe their proximity card and then key in their pin code. All three options must be used and any one or two options would not work.

 

If you are unsure then the best idea is to leave the option set to FP|RF|PIN this would mean that any of the options can be used if they are enrolled for that user. For example if i do not have a pin number enrolled then i still cannot use that option but later if i need to use the pin number then one can be enrolled for the user and they can then use it.
