The siren output signal from a FingerTec device is known as a dry contact and this basically means that the signal is not initially connected to a voltage source. It can also be referred to as a secondary set of contacts of a relay circuit, which does not make or break the primary current that is being controlled by the relay. Selected FingerTec devices that come with a siren include TA100C, AC100C, TimeLine 100 and other time attendance systems.
Previous installations to connect a siren with a FingerTec device could only support DC12V sirens. Now, AC240V sirens, which emits a louder sound compared to the DC12V siren, can be used in the installation provided that the relay used to control a circuit between the FingerTec device and siren supports the appropriate voltage. A power supply, such as AdapTec Plus for example, is required and must also be compatible with the relay in order for the connection to be successful.
The following installation diagram will guide you on connecting a FingerTec device to an AC240V siren with the use of a relay board and power supply.
With this in place, there is now an option provided for you to select the siren that suits your implementation better, be it a DC12V or AC240V siren.

TimeTec Cloud – Assigning Usernames
Friday, March 14, 2014
Friday, March 14, 2014 TimeTec 0 Comments
FingerTec devices that come with a screen are able to display an employee’s name and ID number on the screen after verification of the employee is successful. This will also allow employees to review the date and time of their attendance at the device. The name that is displayed is a unique username that belongs to an employee and the device’s administrator is allowed to configure the employee's username in User Identity under TimeTec Cloud's User module.
In order for the administrator to assign a username for the employees, they must abide by two simple rules:
Support TimeTec TA SDK

TimeTec TA is a cloud-based time and attendance system suitable for small-medium enterprises up to large multinational companies. Its automated attendance database can be used to integrate with payroll or HR software to increase staff’s efficiency with the use of our free SDK. TimeTec TA's SDK provides a data export feature for system integrators to collect the data and use it with their system. However, when using this SDK, direct integration is highly recommended over exporting data because with direct integration, integrators do not need to configure export data and the database can be read directly.
In order to make integration easier, we have prepared a software development kit (SDK) for TimeTec TA. First, you will need to obtain login credentials to the FingerTec Developer Program through an easy process. All you have to do is log in to your TimeTec TA account as an Administrator and select System Settings, then tick the box TimeTec TA SDK Login and click Submit. Your login credentials will appear at the bottom of the page which you can then use to retrieve the TimeTec TA SDK. In addition, we will also send you an email that contains the login credentials you have just obtained.
To retrieve the TimeTec TA SDK, simply visit the FingerTec Developer Program page at https://www.fingertec.com/developerprogram/ta/ and log in to the website using your login credentials. You will be able to download your TimeTec TA SDK in no time.
