This wiki has been updated 6 times since it was first published in October of 2018. Traditional time clocks have always been susceptible to fraud on the part of employees. Workers could easily punch in for one another, or try to manipulate the hours recorded on their cards. With a biometric model, no one can punch in or out without having their fingerprint scanned, which will drastically cut down on time theft, and make payroll much easier when week's end rolls around. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best biometric time clock on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

October 31, 2018:

At this point, it seems the best hardware and software combinations come with devices that require a monthly subscription for their most effective use, but I tried not to let that count as too much of a negative unless the cost was unreasonable. Ease and reliability of networking was weighted more heavily than portability, as well, though some models — like the ZKTeco — jumped up a few spots for being both portable and durable.

Daniel Imperiale holds a bachelor’s degree in writing, and proudly fled his graduate program in poetry to pursue a quiet life at a remote Alaskan fishery. After returning to the contiguous states, he took up a position as an editor and photographer of the prestigious geek culture magazine “Unwinnable” before turning his attention to the field of health and wellness. In recent years, he has worked extensively in film and music production, making him something of a know-it-all when it comes to camera equipment, musical instruments, recording devices, and other audio-visual hardware. Daniel’s recent obsessions include horology (making him a pro when it comes to all things timekeeping) and Uranium mining and enrichment (which hasn’t proven useful just yet).
