    You could make one....

    Get a touch screen for hundred quids or so and mount it. For the backend use some PHP to pull a list a current staff from the ad, format each staff name into a big touch friendly button. On click (touch) it sends a hidden form back to PHP with the staff member's name, this is then sent to the database, if in the database the user is already "onsite" it sets them to "off site" otherwise it sets them to onsite, therefore if they are signing in it will set them as "on site" if they are already signed in, and hence signing OUT, it will set them as "off site" make a report page in the event of a fire that pulls out all users with "on site" and there is your register. There will be more to it than that, I would probably change the colour of the buttons so when the list is presented to the staff it shows a green button to sign in and a red one to sign out or something and various tweaks such as a "oops I hit the wrong button" function just in case someone fat fingers it and signs someone else in by accident. Saves a thousand pound, you get a system you understand rather than some offsite support and you can hack it about to make it perfect rather than relying on someone like cunninghams to do it for you (if they ever do).

    We have a full 32 point biometric registration system - it writes to sims for students but the unit in reception logs in and out staff. It interfaces with the fire alarm and prints out who is here/not here if the fire alarm goes.

    Had a swipe-in system at my last school. Worked well for signing staff and kids in and was used for room access control and printing out class lists etc for fire-drills. Only problem is no one swiped out when they left so the system became useless for keeping track of who was at school.
