Accessories and standards
The Sloneek Attendance Terminal can be any device that meets the following requirements:
Internet connection, ideally via Ethernet (cable), WIFI cannot be recommended due to fluctuating signal quality
USB port for connecting a card reader
We currently support only the following versions of Chrome: 119 (latest), 118 and 117. If you have a lower version, please update your browser.
- Touch screen (the terminal is adapted to touch screens, but it can also be controlled using, for example, an external keyboard and mouse. Even a numeric keypad for entering the user's PIN would even suffice instead of a full-fledged keyboard.)
Built-in or USB web camera for recording photos of users when entering arrivals and departures
From the above, it is clear that the terminal software can run on virtually any laptop. However, for the best user experience, we recommend a device with a touch screen and a built-in camera.
By default, Sloneek works with the Mifare standard, using cards and readers at a frequency of 13.56 MHz. However, the reader can be exchanged for 125 KHz, in which case it is necessary to use cards operating at this frequency.
In practice, if a company needs to use a mix of both types of frequencies for any reason, it is possible that we would only have to have both readers at the terminal, or one reader that supports both frequencies.
Any contactless medium that can read the above readers and has its own unique ID is usable. It can be cards, chips or stickers.
You can find out this unique ID simply by connecting the card reader to the computer and having this code read in a text editor after attaching the chip or card. Then just copy this set of numbers or characters and paste it into Sloneek in the Settings / Attendance cards section in the Attendence card ID.
