Dahua Technology Ltd

Dahua Technology, a manufacturer and supplier of video surveillance products headquartered in Hangzhou, China, officially announces the release of a new attendance standalone - ASA1212A.

Currently, organisations are under increasing pressure to improve productivity, manage work resources more effectively and provide better services with fewer resources than ever before. The above requirements drive the organisation to implement automated time and attendance systems, while also improving the management of human resources.

Three attendance modes

In order to satisfy different needs, Dahua ASA1212A has three different attendance modes: normal, free and professional. Normal attendance mode is for fixed working schedule, free mode is for flexible working schedule and professional mode is for multiple working shifts. (Multiple working shifts mean one can configure total shifts available for a working day, for example, 3 working shifts per day. However, one cannot define different rest days under this scenario, because there is no more weekday or weekend). These three attendance modes help the device work well in all sized enterprises.

In the more challenging technological and human resources environments, one can also upgrade Dahua ASA1212A with a web interface that enables administrators to review the data and work with the program even from remote locations.

Flexible management system

Dahua ASA1212A is ideal for all end-users. Its Linux system is a powerful and flexible management system which supports comfortable operation and easy use on the web server. There are simple 3-step menu configuration processes to set different periods, rules and shifts for different departments.

Dahua ASA1212A is not only suited to a range of enterprises, but also capable of integrating with lock, exit button and door sensor. After the integration, ASA1212A can be applicable to an access control as well. It has multiple types of alarm such as door time out alarm, intrusion alarm, duress alarm and vandal-proof alarm. In addition, ASA1212A allows storing as much data as 10,000 card users and 30,000 attendance records.
