TA-SF3 Time Clock

Fingerprints for Keyless Entry

Networkable & Addressable

The TA-SF3 can also be used as an Access Control reader, the AC-SF3. The TA-SF3 works with the Shepherd Software (Software).  The operation of both systems is very similar. Software is sold separately.

With the AC-SF3, FaceKey™ access control is easier and more secure than ever.  The AC-SF3 can be programmed to open a door with a fingerprint only or with up to 15 methods to enhance the level of security. The AC-SF3 supports onboard Generic (EM) or Mifare card readers.  Other functions are: Wiegand input, Wiegand output, anti-passback and a virtual keypad.

When a new user is added to the system, the system securely stores and encrypts each fingerprint into a database. The AC-SF3 may be networked or deployed as a standalone unit without software. The FaceKey™ Access Control Management Software or Shepherd Security System is sold separately. Additional units of the AC-SF3 can be added as a business expands its operations.

The AC-SF3 is a cost effective primary access control system or can become the biometric solution and retrofit an existing system. The AC- SF3 supplies a Wiegand 26-bit signal, which allows the addition of an AC-SF3 to a third-party security platform where a biometric device is required.

The FaceKey™   Software creates a typical IP network server and client configuration. Data collected at each unit is automatically uploaded to the server, while data at the network level, such as the addition or deletion of a user, may be selectively distributed to each unit. In the event that communication with the network fails, the SF3s will continue to collect data which will be uploaded when communication with the server is reestablished.

When used as a time clock, the Shepherd Software provides business rules and reports for time and attendance.

The EntryGuard™ AC- SF3 has a full array of features (see Benefits and Features and Technical Specifications) and offers an extensive choice of time zones and alarm functions. For installations where access requires the identification of more than one person, the unlock combo feature will allow the system to request the fingerprints of up to five persons, one from each group, before access is granted.
