Facial Recognition vs. Fingerprint: Why BTS Leads in Biometric Technology

In the fast-paced world of workforce management, precision and security are of the utmost importance. Biometric Time Solutions (BTS) is at the forefront of this technological revolution, offering robust solutions like Fingerprint clocking in machines and Facial Recognition systems. Each of these options has unique strengths, and choosing the right Biometric clock-in system can significantly impact your organisation’s efficiency and security.

Let’s explore the advantages of each system to help determine which biometric solution is best suited for your needs.


Fingerprint technology has long been the bedrock of biometric verification, providing a variety of options to meet a range of requirements. Many businesses rely on Fingerprint clock in systems for several reasons:

Cost-Effective Entry Point: Entry-level Fingerprint Readers are often the most budget-friendly choice for biometric verification.

Highly Portable: Fingerprint clocking in machines are ideal for mobile requirements, excelling in environments like farming, construction, and temporary site events.

Outdoor Adaptability: These systems are typically more affordable for outdoor usage thanks to their durable design.

Space-Efficient Design: Compact Fingerprint Readers are perfect for areas with limited space.

Enrollment Versatility: The ability to enroll multiple fingers per user offers a backup for clocking in, ensuring reliable verification.

Broad Integration: BTS integrates with many leading biometric brands, offering a wide selection of Fingerprint clock in systems in South Africa.

Facial Recognition technology signifies a major advancement in Time and attendance systems. Here’s what sets Facial Recognition apart:

Hygienic and Contact-Free: Offering a touchless experience, Facial Recognition systems are invaluable in today’s health-focused climate, eliminating concerns of germ transfer.

Superior in Harsh Conditions: In industries where fingerprints can be compromised, Facial Recognition provides a consistent and reliable alternative.

User-Friendly Operation: Systems automatically adjust for angle and lighting variances, ensuring swift recognition in under a second.

Cost-Competitive: Despite its sophistication, Facial Recognition is competitively priced, often on par with or less expensive than Fingerprint clock in systems.

Longevity and Durability: The non-contact nature of Facial Recognition results in less wear on the system, suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.

Rapid Popularity: Facial Recognition is quickly becoming a preferred technology due to its convenience and ongoing advancements.
