Shamel GSM Attendance System is an Innovative Biometrics Fingerprint Machine for the time attendance applications. With built-in 2000mAh battery backup, it eliminates the trouble of power-failure. This system is based on 3G communication. It is equipped with the fastest commercial-based fingerprint matching algorithm and high-performance, high-image quality optical fingerprint sensor. The screen can display more information vividly, including fingerprint image quality and verification result etc. 3G communication is standard and makes sure the data transmission between terminal and Server can be easily done within few seconds. This system is on Three Tier Model ◾Remote Machines ◾ Application Server ◾Database Server. This system is an integrated solution that consists of hardware and software designed to control and manages staff attendance at the educational institutions The system is designed to increase security by defining access permissions based on area and time for each user and maintaining a log of all events. This Biometric Fingerprint Time & Attendance System utilizes the most advance technologies and mechanisms available in the market. The system offers unparalleled performance using an advanced algorithm for reliability; precision and excellent fingerprint matching speed. This 3G based biometric fingerprint attendance system stores fingerprint data, employee details. User time-in, time-out and attendance logs are stored in server. Administrators can interact with data being sent using this device from a central server. Biometric devices and Reporting Application users of the system communicate to the server with the help of secure VPN tunnel. Only authenticated users are able to connect with the biometric system reporting Application. Fingerprint registration and verification is performed on the device whereas fingerprint authentication is performed both on the device and remote server. Hence PCs or other equipment is not required during the functioning of the system even in the remote areas.
