PeopleKey casts the 5110 biometric time and attendance clocking system

PeopleKey, a manufacturer of biometric devices used for time & attendance data recording and access control solutions, has launched the latest in its extensive product line with the introduction of the PeopleKey 5110 Face & Finger Scanner. The 5110 builds upon the earlier 5100 model, having added a camera enhancement to the product providing the additional benefit and convenience of facial recognition along with the security of fingerprint scanning.

How efficient is the 5110 face and finger scanner?

The camera has been paired with an industry leading facial recognition algorithm, ranking as the fastest algorithm in the NIST 1:N Face Recognition Vendor Test, taking 13 milliseconds to find a specific face among 12 million subjects without compromising accuracy.

In real-world testing, using small power-efficient edge computing, the camera/algorithm combination delivers 10,000 template comparisons per second after capture. The camera operates at 30 frames per second and the image to template conversion takes 300ms.

Made from a tough polycarbonate shell, the 5110 is built for Australian standards with the device suited to both indoor and outdoor environments with a high contrast LCD panel ensuring the screen can be viewed in various lighting and weather conditions.

The 5110 syncs with PeopleKey’s Nexus™ cloud solution that allows the clocking of workers in and out times to be stored, backed-up and accessible anytime and anywhere. The service is underpinned via Microsoft’s Azure platform providing unrivalled security and support.
