  • Smarter than card-based terminals – There are no cards
    to create, administer, carry — or lose. The HandPunch verifies
    employees’ identities in less than one second, based on the unique
    size and shape of their hands. HandPunch clearly notifies each user
    of a match using red and green indicator lights. Because no one
    can punch in or out for your employees, the system reduces time
    theft and improves payroll accuracy.
  • Hand Geometry Technology – The HP 4000E uses field-proven
    hand geometry biometrics technology. The hand’s size and the shape
    are used to verify their identity with unparalleled accuracy. No
    fingerprints or palm prints are utilized. Green and red lights
    notify the employee of the status of each punch. There’s no
    question any more; employees have to be there to punch.
  • An important HR communication tool – More than a simple
    time and attendance terminal, the HP 4000E lets you tailor the
    system to meet your precise needs. The system provides the ability
    to send messages to employees when they punch. In addition,
    employees can view up to 24 information fields to find out about
    their schedule, total hours worked, and more.
  • 10 Programmable Data Management Keys – Ten
    user-definable data management keys let you collect and/or display
    data as employees punch. Common data collection uses include
    department transfers, tips collected, job codes, or pay codes. The
    keys can also be defined to allow employees to review punches or
    find out about their schedules, vacation time accumulated, hours
    worked, and other programmed information. To reduce keystrokes,
    the keys can also be set to automatically enter data such as a
    frequently used department number or in/out status.
  • Employee Schedules – Employee schedules may be
    downloaded to the HP 4000E to restrict the times that an employee
    can punch. This can reduce unauthorized overtime as well as early
    “in” punches. A separate schedule can be defined for each employee
    providing the ultimate in flexibility.
  • Built-in Barcode Reader – Some installations require the
    use of a badge. For these situations, the HP 4000E includes an
    integrated barcode reader that can be used for ID number entry.
    The swipe-type reader supports the most popular barcode formats and
    allows for infrared badges.
  • Communications and Networking – Whether your needs are
    to network two terminals or thousands, the HP 4000E can be
    configured to meet your needs. The HP 4000E connects quickly to the
    time and attendance PC via ethernet cable. For older systems, the
    HP 4000 Serial uses a RS-232 cable, allows multiple units to be
    connected via RS-485 wiring, and has an optional internal 14.4 K
    baud dial-up modem. Each unit also provides RS-232 serial printer
  • Edit-at-the-Clock Functions – The system allows
    supervisors to override user restrictions and to input such items
    as missed punches, planned vacations, sick time, etc. The
    password-protected mode provides greater supervisor flexibility by
    lessening the need for computer edits. Audit trails are available
    to ensure security.
  • Bell Schedules – The bell schedule lets you program the
    day, time, and duration of a series of bells. The bells can be
    programmed to signal the beginning or end of a shift, lunch, or
  • Door Control – The HP 4000E provides the capability to
    unlock and monitor a door. An employee’s individual schedule may
    be used to restrict access. Note: Some time and attendance
    software packages may not have implemented all of these features
    in their interface software. Please check with your software
    vendor for details.
