Time Key integrates Time & Attendance and Physical Access Control into a single system.

Winston-Salem, NC: Sept. 11, 2012 - Kaba ADS Americas, a leading manufacturer of access control and data system solutions, has added the new Time Key data capture terminal to its intelligence-based product line. Time Key combines Time & Attendance and Physical Access Control, enabling users to share a single user base for administration.

Designed for businesses with up to 500 employees, Time Key is ideal for medical offices, quick service restaurants, retail establishments, banks, remote construction sites, warehouse/distribution centers, manufacturing sites, government facilities, and educational buildings. Because the e-DATA Biometric Fingerprint Key is NEMA-4 rated, it can be used in exterior environments.   In addition, the system supports PINS, Smart Cards, and biometric (fingerprint) credentials; along with HID iClass®, LEGIC, MIFARE™, and e-DATA biometric (fingerprint key) readers, or any combination.

"Buddy punching costs companies 7 - 8% of payroll," states John Carter, President, e-DATA.  "Use of the biometric reader eliminates this." 

Offering an economical alternative to labor-intensive manual time tracking, Time Key virtually eliminates time card preparation, collection, and storage; and simplifies installation by offering users an easy plug-and-play system.  

Time Key can be managed via a web browser in a company's network facilitating reporting for payroll and access management. This new system offers users a high level of security and accountability that captures and tracks all access control activity and cardholder information, including card number and scheduled access for each cardholder.

"e-DATA solutions are unique in that they offer embedded applications," says Logan Stewart, Product Manager.  "This eliminates the need for licensing fees as well as the high cost of servers and cabling."
