Tips on Ingress Software Only for Attendance

Wednesday, February 18, 2015 TimeTec 8 Comments

Ingress software is designed as an access control software first and doors are the main subject in Ingress instead of devices. When there are no doors involved, that’s where things get confusing. But, don’t pull your hair just yet. Ingress also has been loaded with comprehensive time attendance features to cater to clients who want to use this software for time attendance only so this article will explain to you what you should to use Ingress Software solely for attendance.

Take this for an example. You install a TA200 Plus at a corridor of production area where there is no door but Ingress requires you to pair the device to door to complete the setup. How do you proceed?

You still need to create door under Door section, name it the same name as you named the device. If you named the TA200 Plus at the corridor of production area as Attendance Station 1, name the door under Door module as Attendance Station 1 as well. Now, pair the device to the door with the same name. By giving them the same name, you eliminate confusion and make the system easier to operate.

Since you are using the system solely as attendance, lets skip some modules. First, skip Zone which is only applicable to Ingressus controller, then please skip Monitoring and Visual Map. Focus more
on Users, Attendance and Report to fully utilize attendance features in Ingress. 



  1. hello,
    Please does ingress allow:
    1. Employees apply for leave.
    2. Supervisors to review and approve or not approve leave request/application

    1. Hello Sir,

      Regarding to your query, our Ingress software only can support the simple Leave day setting where only software admin can edit or key in the leave day for each user or employee inside their own duty planner. In the meant time, there is no option to approve or request the leave day by the supervisor. Regards.

  2. Hi
    I this software designed to make a time for User example 30 days this user can access door after this time the user can't access door until is go to admin and make new permission. Can this software do this?

    1. Hello Mustafa,

      Referring to your inquiry, our device and software does not have the option to set the expiry date for the user. Once the user has been enrolled in the device, then the user is able to verify and have access to the device unless you remove the user details and data in the device.

  3. Hi,
    Can Ingress Software can make category for
    1. employee with door access + time attendance
    2. employee with time attendance only

    1. Hello Yudi,

      Regarding to your query,if you want to use with time attendance only there is another software name TCMSv3. TCMSv3 is a software mainly for time attendance which does not include door access function.

      For time attendance + door access, Ingress is the software where two of these modules are included.

      Please refer to the link to download these software,

  4. Can I utilize both attendace and access control on the same ingress machine installed at an entrance without causing conflicts

    1. Dear Sir/ Madam,

      Good day to you.

      In regards to your inquiry, yes you can utilize both attendance and access control on the same device. There is no issue to use same device as attendance and access control. Ingress will use the data that has been captured at the machine for attendance data.
