Abstract

Enhanced Biometric Attendance and Recording System for Teaching and Non-Teaching Staff in a Tertiary Institution

Biometric technology offers an advanced verification of human identity used in most schools and companies for recording the daily attendance of the employees. This study uses the biometric technology to address the problems of many companies and schools such as employees doing the proxy attendance for their colleagues, stealing company time, and putting in more time in the daily time record (DTR). The researcher developed a system with the use of fingerprint reader and the webcam device to facilitate the recording of login and logout of the employees in the school campus. The employee uses one finger to record his or her time of arrival and departure from the office through the use of the fingerprint reader. The DTR of employees is recorded correctly by the system; the tardiness and under time in the morning and in the afternoon of their official time is also computed. The system was developed using the Microsoft Visual C# 2008 programming language, MySQL 5.1 database software, and Software Development Kit (SDK) for the fingerprint reader and the webcam device.
