Device Operation

Auto Scan Mode:
When the device boots up, it will directly go to auto scan mode where user can scan their fingers of tap Mifare card to give their attendance. If the finger is identified, the user ID will be shown on the screen and attendance log will be stored in the device.


For verification, give your user ID and place the finger on scanner when it glows. The success/fail message will be displayed on screen. For every successful verification, log will get stored in the device.



In identification, the above screen will be shown. When you press “1” on the keypad, the fingerprint scanner will glow and you can scan your finger. If the finger found in the database, the corresponding user ID will be displayed on screen otherwise failure message will be displayed. For every successful identification, log will get stored in the device.


Log Posting:

Here you can post the logs that got stored in the device by the above three (auto scan, verification, identification) modes. The logs get posted to a pre-defined server.

First, the screen displays the number of logs present in the device and asks for your confirmation. On confirmation, the device starts posting logs using pre-selected network type. The log posting speed completely depends on your service provider.

After posting logs acknowledgement message will be displayed on the screen as shown below and if all logs get posted, the log file will be deleted automatically to save space.
