Can Biometrics be Metal Strong?

When Biometric attendance machines and access control systems took birth in plastics, can there be any other option to offer them more firmness?

Plastic, a Stereotype for Biometrics:

The world is now well versed with the thought on how a biometric attendance machine would look like. If a person wants to go deep down into the Design & Development part of it, apart from all the electrical and electronic devices, it is majorly being made up of good quality plastic. And that's what we desire for, in terms of outer finish and appearance of a bio-metrically operated attendance machines and access control systems as features are always given preference over the casing.

Why the need for Metallic Casing appeared?

But the conditions are not same everywhere. A light weight plastic made biometric attendance machine can be best suited for Corporate offices with fewer employees and comparatively less wear and tear as compared to big industrial setups, factories, warehouses where a machine will come in contact with Thousands of labors, workers, technicians and many others. It would be difficult for a plastic to bear such amount of load.

Unskilled labors are not familiar with such equipments and training needs to be given to use such machines but results won't be satisfactory as deformity will definitely appear in the machine. Next problem arises with the environmental conditions of such places as manufacturing units are comparatively hotter, moist and unpleasant. On the other hand a machine would come in contact with labor's dirty, greezy wet hands or fingers making the machine more prone to defects and UN-functionality. So the question here is,

  • What can be used instead of Plastic?
  • What can be more strength-full with decent looks along with outstanding performance?

Answer can be simple, to use any metallic substance for casing of biometric machines but the next obstacle will be the Design & Development facility with which it can be designed, manufactured and assembled. This can only be implemented by an Indian manufacturer with in-house Research & Development team and facilities. Next struggle is with the user friendly approach of the machine which should help the unskilled employees to mark the attendance easily.

  • Symbols to show where to punch the attendance through finger or card in National or Native language can be the finest idea for labors
  • Visual confirmation through Red/Green indicators can act as an add on for surety
  • Audible confirmation in National/Native language can mark the final acceptance for attendance

Face Recognition – No Effort Key

Explaining the fact how face symmetries has unlocked our world for Biometric Attendance, Access Control Security and Surveillance.


In the world of Identification & Authentication through Fingerprint, Card Access, Palm Reading and other geometries, Face Recognition has remained an area of interest and research because of its unparalleled nature and uncommon properties. Reason why it is becoming one of the foremost choice in the field of Security & Access Control is that it requires Limited Human Efforts as compared to other Biometric techniques. Application area can be vast for this technique but majorly it is used in spheres like : Time Attendance, Employee Management, Visitor Management & Access Control Systems. An obvious reason which enhances the usage of face recognition, a difficult and lengthy task to maintain book records for entry and exits. Maintaining and verifying large books of attendance and access control can be a nightmare for departments and situation can go tricky with multi locations and various other modifications. So let us study about why and how Face Recognition can be the next favorite in the field of Security and Access Control.


Face recognition works on a completely different aspect or it will be better to mention that face reader is the future of attendance management and access control system. We opt for a divergent physiological identifier which is to recognize & map the facial symmetry of a human face and identify thru it.

Face reader monitors the dimensions of a face, maps the facial features which includes distance between eyes, nose & mouth from each other and saves an analytical picture of our face into it. facial recognition is an advanced technology that requires high-quality digital cameras for algorithms to operate accurately. A face recognition system captures a set of 3 different face postures in the photo or screen-shot from a video, then the relative size of that face image will be compared with the size. So, the photo’s quality can affect the whole face recognition process. Everyone has different face symmetries which makes this technique zero percent prone to theft, trespassing or any other sort of illegal activities.

Distinctive Features offered by face reader breaking the myths which alleged about its inefficiency in attendance and access control industry

Photo/Face Scanning:

Face recognition uses most distinctive feature of image scanning, recognizing and authentication. It is said that cyber crime can be executed from capturing blueprints of biometric data but getting someone's face symmetry data is impossible and one cannot break the algorithm by showing an image in front of the machine which is considered to be a break through in its security.

Till the time a person's face is not brought in front of a face reader, no image or any other kind of facial statistics or dimensions can help to enter the secured area.

Unique ID Enrollment:

Another feature affirming security with face reader equipment is the unique ID enrollment process. Under this, a face reader registers only one face with an employee ID. Lets clear it with an example, an employee with their unique employee ID gets registered on a face reader equipment for attendance or access control. A corrupt way to breach a face reader's security fencing can be; enrolling an employee's face on any other employee ID. with this attendance or access can be marked on a different person's ID and access would be permitted to a different person.

Unique ID enrollment makes sure that single face gets registered with the associated employee ID. A Face reader with this feature will never accept a single face with 2 Ids.

Dual Profile Management:

Two profiles are provided in a face reader namely; Admin & User. With this feature only admin is authorized to amend changes like,
  • To give/restrict authorities to users.
  • To add/remove employees from the machine.
  • To check & import data.

Dual profile management makes sure that all the data and features are under safe hands and there are zero percent chances of any sort of security breach.

GPS Enable Biometric Attendance System

Employee safety is the first priority of any organization where employees work in night shifts or till late hours. Many companies provide cab facility to ensure that employees don’t suffer because of the odd working hours. But, there are a lot of concerns associated with it such as how to know if they reached home safely, what if the cab breaks down in between, etc.
GPS or Global Positioning System is a system that helps us locate an object. Star Link provides a unique GPS enabled system that can be attached with literally everything, children, cab, adults, you name it.
The best part about GPS enabled system is they also act as a time attendance software. Employees can mark their attendance in the machine.
It’s for Everyone
GPS enabled system is not just for employees, even schools, colleges, and other institutions that provide cab facility to students can use GPS enabled systems from Star Link to track the live location of the vehicle and boarding/de-boarding location of each and every student or employee (teachers).
Additionally, you can also track wait duration at a certain point and can update the status to the employees waiting in the next stop. For example, if the vehicle broke down after picking 3 employees, you can inform the 4th one that the cab will be late and they can wait inside their home instead of waiting at the nodal point.
All the GPS enabled systems come with an in-built battery and wireless connection option, allowing users to use it on the go. It can be fixed in movable vehicles or you can even keep the device in your child’s pocket to keep an eye on his movement.
The primary aim of the GPS enabled biometric attendance system is to mark employees’ attendance while ensuring their safety.
You can provide one device to each of your employees, so you know when they were in the office and when they were not. Ask them to keep it on only during office hours, so they won’t feel like their privacy is being compromised.

Bottom Line
With an increase in proxy punching, it’s time for organizations to move towards GPS enabled biometric attendance system. It prevents buddy punching while ensuring their safety at the same time.
Star Link is the leading manufacturer of time attendance software and biometric systems. Contact us now to get the latest price for our products.
