Face, fingerprint & iris biometrics for attendance management

SKU: NTANBA101 Category:

Overview

Overview

An end-user biometric system designed to automate attendance control in a wide range of business applications, from employee time tracking to check-in at events, clubs, clinics, public and commercial facilities.
Reliable biometric identification technologies designed for installation on a desktop computer or laptop or tablet (PC) that is running under Microsoft Windows. Also can be used on Android-based smartphones or tablets.

  • Full control on user attendance

The NCheck software allows to register all arrival and departure events for every registered person. There are no software limitations on how many times a user checks with the system, so all leaves can be registered with the systems. Face, fingerprint and iris biometrics ensure attendance accuracy and prevent user fraud. Optionally, RFID or barcodes can be used for two-factor authentication together with biometrics.

  • GPS logging

NCheck can optionally determine and store user location during checking. This feature is useful for remote employee attendance tracking and is available on devices which have geolocation functionality. User position is automatically stored in the database as street address or as geographic coordinates if the street address is unavailable.

  • Employee groups and shift schedules

Users can be arranged into groups according to organization’s structure. Shifts can be created and assigned for each group.

  • Reports generation

Time and attendance reports with daily summary times for all or selected users can be automatically generated and printed. Optionally, the reports may include location information for the check events. The reports can be generated for current day, week, month or for a custom time interval.

  • External applications call

NCheck Bio Attendance can be configured to call external applications after users check-in and/or check-out. This feature can be used for unlocking doors or notifying staff about arrivals or departures.

  • Multiple architectures support:
    • Cloud architecture: NCheck may be installed as a light-weight client app on an Android device. Users need only to create an account ar the NCheck Cloud and enter the account credentials to the installed app to start using it. All biometric recognition is performed at NCheck Cloud, as well as all attendance data is stored there. Note that NCheck Cloud supports only face biometrics at the moment.
      Try NCheck Cloud for free.
    • Client-server: NCheck may be installed on multiple PCs and/or Android devices, which are on the same network. One PC will act as a server, which stores users’ data and performs biometric identification, while the others can be configured to connect it as clients. The system may be scaled up anytime by just adding more computers or Android devices with NCheck to the existing network. This mode is suitable for organizations or events, which require to ensure users’ data privacy.
    • Stand-alone mode: NCheck may run on a PC, laptop or an Android device in a stand-alone mode, which means that all biometric data will be stored on that computer or device, as well as all operations will be also performed locally. The computer or device with NCheck installation may operate  without network connection, except for the first launch just after installation. This mode is suitable for smaller businesses, organizations or events, where low peak numbers of attendees are expected.
  • Delayed synchronization

A device with a client-side NCheck Bio Attendance installation can be configured to perform automatic
synchronization of the attendance data with a server-side NCheck once a network connection is available. This option is useful for attendance control in a scenario where there are no network coverage at remote location.

  • Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)

NCheck Bio Attendance may be used in BYOD scenario, when employees or other users install a small Android app on their personal smartphones or tablets and perform check-in or check-out by making selfie photos. There are two BYOD scenario options:

  • Cloud client app is available at Google Play. Users will need to create an account at NCheck Cloud.
  • NCheck Personal ID is available at Google Play. This app should be used when a user has one NCheck installation running on his/her own PC or device, which acts as a server. Client app users should be in the same local network with the server (i.e. being present at the office) while checking in or out.
  • Data export

The time and attendance reports and log entries can be exported to XLS, PDF or CSV files. The data is exported for a selected month or custom time interval as daily summaries.
Notifications via email: A notification is sent to a user who forgot to check with the system or in case of other issues. Optionally, a copy of the notification can be also sent to a dedicated user like HR manager or system administrator.

System Requirements

System Requirements

We recommend to install NCheck Bio Attendance software on a dedicated PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone, which does not run any non-related applications. Such configuration is required for stable and optimal system performance.

To install and run NCheck Bio Attendance software your system should meet the following requirements:

  • Microsoft Windowsspecific:
    • PC or laptop or tablet with x86 32- or 64-bit
    • Microsoft Windows7 / 8 / 10, 32-bit or 64-bit.
  • Android specific:
    • tablet or smartphone with ARM-based processor. At least 5 GHz clock rate recommended for convenient performance. Slower processors may be also used, but the fingerprint or face processing will take longer time.
    • The device should have at least 512 MB of RAM.
    • At least 2 GB of free storage space on a build-in flash or external memory card.
    • Android 4.0 or newer.
  • One of the following devices for capturing fingerprints, faces or irises:
    • fingerprint reader that is supported by NCheck software. 300 x 400 pixel fingerprint image size is recommended; you may find more details in the comparison table of the supported scanners.
    • webcam, smartphone or tablet built-in camera, or other camera with at least 640 x 480 pixel native resolution.
      Smartphone and tablet users should note that we recommend to use front camera in most cases, whereas the rear camera is more suitable, when an operator scans and checks attendees.
    • An iris scanner:
      • We highly recommend to use specialized iris scanners, which capture eye images in near-infrared spectral region and provide appropriate illumination and image quality for the most accurate iris recognition. Usage convenience is also assured as these scanners do not have any exceptional usage constraints. See the list of supported iris scanners.
      • A smartphone or tablet build-in camera may be also used for iris capture, but proper illumination, focus and environment should be assured. Usually an operator should perform eye image capture with a smartphone or tablet camera.

Technical Specifications

Technical Specifications

 

  • Fingerprint image size: The NCheck software performance and usage convenience strongly depends on the used fingerprint scanner, as the fingerprint image size has direct influence on the software performance and reliability. Using larger fingerprint images results in higher identification reliability but lower response time and vice versa. Usually, the optimal fingerprint image size for NCheck software is about 300 x 400 pixels. See the comparison table of the supported scanners for more details on image sizes of specific scanners.
  • Recommendations for facial recognition.640 x 480 pixel or better native camera resolution is recommended. Users may enroll several face images, especially with differences in appearance (i.e. beard or mustache grown or shaved off).
  • Iris image requirements: An iris on an image should be at least 64 pixels wide to provide full iris texture for iris template extraction. A specialized iris scanner, which captures eye images in near-infrared spectral region, is recommended.
  • Employee enrollment and identification: The enrollment process for an employee requires to put one’s finger on a fingerprint scanner, or to show up in front of a camera and to enter employee name, meaning that the enrollment process is fast and simple. Later the employee has to just put his/her finger on the fingerprint reader or to show up in front of the camera for checking in or out. The NCheck software assures fast response during employee identification.
  • Several fingers for each user: The system allows to enroll more than one finger for each user to avoid user rejections if an incorrect finger was placed. Later, during the everyday check-in/check-out, employees can conveniently put any of their fingers on the fingerprint reader and be accurately recognized.
  • Identification reliability: The NCheck Bio Attendance software is based on our own biometric identification technologies which reliability has been proved by multiple tests:
    • VeriFinger fingerprint identification technology has received awards for its high reliability in competitions since 2000. The VeriFinger technology has been successfuly used in more than 1,500 end-user product brands over the past 19 years, ranging from small business-oriented solutions to national-scale systems.
    • VeriLook facial recognition technology has been tested on public face image datasets and showed decent identification reliability. The technoloogy has more than a million end-user deployments worldwide over the past 13 years.
    • VeriEye iris identification technology has shown excellent reliability results in numerous NIST-organized evaluations since 2009.
  • Managed by an administrator. An “administrator” user can log in to the NCheck with a password and perform these actions:
    • manage the list of the users;
    • add or edit check-in/check-out events for a selected user;
    • manage the connected fingerprint scanners and face cameras;
    • generate attendance reports;
    • managing multiple installations in a networked systems;
    • configure other features of the application.
