Electronic Sign In System
Does anyone use an electronic sign in system for staff?
I'm thinking of getting one for reception. And when staff come in on a morning they just click / touch there name on the screen and it logs them in. Doesn't need to log time etc/ Just wether they are in school or not.

The high school i help out have introduced a fingerprint system where you walk through the door, stick your thumb onto the scanner and it logs the time you came in/left whatever.
From what i understand they need a computer somewhere for the hardware to interface with and upload sign in/out details etc.
I will ask this friday when i go in for more details and post back if youd like.

It will not take long for some one to involve a union in this!!!

Probably but at the end of the day it shouldn't lots of people at work everyday have to clock in/out otherwise they don't get paid.

Thats true. We don't need to record times, just log in school or not. We just tick on a piece of paper at the moment.

which brand of system is this? i looked into the videx one. The worry my head had was that it wouldnt be as quick as stated and wanted to see a system in place locally

yes we use a paper based system for this.
would be very interested in an electronic system.

You could do this with a paxton door access system - just use the sign in/out part only. You'd need to have RFID cards for all staff though. So all they do is swipe their card at that particular (or those, if you have more than one entrance) rfid reader and that's it. You wouldn't have to have it hooked up to doors etc...

We use a system called Inventry. Staff have cards with barcodes on they swipe and it keeps a list of staff on/off site. No complaints/unions involved, everyone has been cool about it.
Its also used for visitors and prints photo badges.

My old school used the cunninghams biostore one - saying it would be linked to sims etc for sixthform entry - they are about to send it back to Cunninghams.

We have inventry for Visitors
We have Paxton Net2 for staff and 6fm..
after 20 months neither could be termed reliable if required for a fire register.

Our Site Manager uses this for his cleaning staff, BioTime: the advantages of biometric time attendance for those that didn't want to record their fingerprints or it didn't work they were given a PIN number for signing in and out.
I think it was around £500 to purchase.
Up to now it works well and helps him put together the time sheets of his staff.

Do you know what the issue was with the system?

As of 4 weeks ago when i last spoke to teh school it still didn't write back to sims.
