Time Clocks FAQs

The Z14 and the Z34 are being replaced by Punch. Punch offers the same features and functionality of both the Z14 and the Z34, available in a model that supports print and proximity cards, and another that supports a swipe card.
Our new clocks can store up to 6,000 unique fingerprints.
Our new Touch is replacing TimeWorksTouch. Touch includes a faster processor and updated fingerprint scanning technology that makes this a faster and more reliable option for a biometric clock. Touch includes a touch screen and biometric fingerprint scanner for fast, unique authentication. Touch also supports proximity badges/cards as an alternative authentication option.
Vision and the Vision+Thermal are both based on exactly the same clock hardware. The only difference is that the Vision+Thermal includes a secondary thermal module that reads human temperature. The thermal module is physically connected to the clock hardware and simply adds the thermal capability to the Vision clock.
Our new Touch will automatically find and store fingerprint information from your existing TimeWorksTouch clocks once you sync prints in the settings. If you are adding a new Punch to a network that has the Z33/Z34, you will need to manually add fingerprints to the new clock.
No. When you add our Intelligent Clocks to a network of clocks without Intelligent features, the Intelligent features will not work. Intelligent Clocks include Touch, Vision, and Vision+Thermal. If you have a network of Z33 clocks, you should either replace all clocks or add only the new Punch.
No. Vision and Vision+Thermal come pre-configured without or with the thermal scanner, respectively. If you plan to use thermal capability at any point in the future, we strongly recommend purchasing Vision+Thermal.
