Proximity technology makes this sleek device incredibly easy to maintain, and no moving parts or contact with badges ensure years of worry-free operation.
Proximity key fobs are fast and easy to use, employees simply wave their key fob in front of the time clock to punch IN or OUT. With the proximity reader, no direct contact is required and there are no moving parts making the terminal virtually maintenance free. With proximity key fobs there is no PIN number to forget, sign IN is quick and keeps dirty fingers off of the clock! Proximity systems are rapidly replacing magnetic stripe and barcode badge systems. Why? Because magnetic and barcode badges wear out, are less secure (they can be duplicated), and require exposed electronics to read. Vandalism, dirt, and grime can break the slot that the badges run through. Proximity key fobs don't wear out and can't be duplicated. What's more, since the employee simply touches their key fob to the clock to sign IN or OUT, Proximity key fobs are lost less frequently than magnetic or barcode badges.
