Why is a Facial Recognition Time Clock Essential for Small Businesses?
A facial recognition time clock is no longer a luxury. Advanced biometric clocks are a must-have for today’s workplaces. A facial recognition time clock is both a health and safety device and the best technology for tracking time. It solves a multitude of problems employers are facing as they bring employees back to the office–and try to keep them safe.

What is a facial recognition time clock?
A facial recognition time clock is a hardware clock that tracks employee time. The employee stands in front of the clock and faces the scanner. The time clock identifies the employee by scanning their face and measuring key landmarks between facial features.
When the employee is authenticated, the time clock records their clock-in for the shift. The timestamp is then sent to the time and attendance software where time worked is tracked on digital timecards, along with PTO accruals.
What are the advantages of facial recognition time clock attendance systems?
- Quick–prevents bottlenecks at shift changes
- Accurate–identifies faces with near 100% accuracy
- Works across the broadest range of environments and conditions
- Works for a wide range of skin tones, facial features, and heights
- No lost key cards, fobs or passwords
- Prevents buddy punching as it is virtually impossible to fool
- Controls access in secure environments
Although fingerprint scanning time clocks are notably more secure than many other options on the market, there are still some drawbacks that a time clock with facial recognition can mitigate. If employees are wearing gloves, they have to take them off which slows down the clock-in process. Additionally, there is a possibility fingerprint scanners could prove unreliable in dusty and dirty environments. Like all things in business, assessing your work environment is key to making a decision on what technology suits your business best.
Is it better than an iris scanner?
Iris scanners are slow and tedious. Employees must stand within a few inches, almost touching the device. Thus, they are less hygienic than facial recognition clocks.
