How The HandPunch Works

The HandPunch GT400 verifies each employee by the size and shape of their hand, making the authentication process fast, easy and efficient.  The employees hand can be read even if it's dirty, dusty, greasy, wet, swollen or dry, making this time clock an effective solution in may applications. The HandPunch GT400 biometric system provides many benefits for your company.

Reduced Payroll And Administration Cost

Daily at the point of entry, clock-in and clock-out data is read and recorded, the translation of timecards are eliminated along with any issues between time worked and time reported.

Eliminates Time Fraud

With hand geometry recognition every users hand is considered unique. The HandPunch GT400 mitigates costly and fraudulent time theft known as "buddy punching".

More Productive And Informed Workforce

ATM-style kiosk system communication panel displays relevant data to employees. This verification process takes about a second at the point of entry.  This data is then transferred to management to further enhance communications.


What is Hand Geometry?

Hand geometry measures the size and shape of a person’s hand, including length, width, thickness, and surface area to verify the person’s identity. In conjunction with a PIN number or the swipe of a card, the enrolled individual can punch in for work. Hand readers do not read fingerprints or palm prints.  
  • “Buddy Punching”, i.e. punching in for someone else, is eliminated since credentials cannot be duplicated
  • Hand geometry accurately identifies the user even if his or her hand is dirty, wet or injured, or if the device is damp, dusty or dirty 
  • No fingerprint or palm print is stored in the device
  • Data is not shared with any outside agencies or companies
  •  Verification takes place in about one second
  • Since the “credential” cannot be lost or stolen there is no cost to replace lost, damaged or stolen cards
