The smaller, improved Schlage GT-400 HandPunch terminal uses the size and shape of each employee’s hand for verification, making it fast, efficient, and easy to use. With a large LCD screen and programmable soft keys, perfect for interactive workforce management kiosks, the new HandPunch GT-400 provides a conduit for employee communication right at the terminal. Its Linux platform offers multiple time and attendance/workforce management software developers with easy interface options.
The HandPunch GT-400 uses hand geometry – the length, thickness, and curvature of fingers or simply the size and shape of a user’s hand – to verify each employee. Hand geometry increases reliability and reduces privacy concerns over fingerprint and other biometric technologies. It takes measurements of the hand and converts them into a 20-byte numerical template. This template is then matched with the enrollment template and the user’s identity is verified. Hand geometry technology is not affected by tattoos, jewelry, fingernails, lotions, dirt, smudges, or dust. The reading and verification process takes less than a second with impeccable reliability. During the process, the communication panel can display relevant messages to employees, promoting communication with management.
