How to get data from external fingerprint reader
Question
Application Type
Reactive

Hi all,

I am trying to make an attendance application for my company, where the employees would have to physically scan their fingerprint using external fingerprint reader (NOT mobile) when they come and go. I am not a programmer, so I don't know (yet) how to use their sdk's. Is there an easy way to do this? I am trying to look at the forge, but all it has is mobile plugins.

Thanks in advance

Hi Takada,

If you are not a programmer, this may be a difficult mission for you. Since the fingerprint is a hardware, you need to use javascript to read the data from the USB port. And this depends on the SDK the fingerprint provided. It is hard to clear how to achieve this. First of all, you need to find a javascript plugin to read the fingerprint data from the USB port. Or you cant get the data.
