Lathem, an Atlanta, Georgia-based developer of biometric solutions, has released a new biometric time and attendance tracker that utilizes face recognition as a way for employees to authenticate their identity when clocking in or out for work, according to a Miami Herald article.
The solution, called FaceIN, can make a punch to an employee’s time card within two seconds of standing in front of the camera from up to three feet away.
While biometric time clocks are not a new concept, most in use operate on fingerprint biometrics.
