RFID BASED STUDENT / EMPLOYEE ATTENDANCE TRACKING SYSTEM

Student’s Attendance is an important concern for the parents as well as for the schools.  The existing attendance system in educational institutes is manual, consumes lot of time and has less accuracy. With the increase in bunking of students from schools or colleges, kidnaps, late coming of the child can be monitored using the RFID cards.  RFID stands for Radio-Frequency Identification. Thus it is a RFID based attendance system. In this system each user, student or employee will have a RFID card. And RFID reader will be placed on the door on the door of the classroom or school. He/she has to show the RFID card to the reader and the respective RFID reader will note down the RFID card number and the time at which student has logged in.  And in the same manner while leaving student has to show the card and the exit time will be noted.

Nowadays schools are all set to implement a high-tech solution that will enable the school and parents to monitor and track student’s entry and exit from school;  called RFID and SMS based student attendance system.   Automated SMS notifications can be pushed to parents while entering and exiting of their wards from school. The RFID based attendance system has also enabled the school administration to ensure only accredited people access the school/ college premises. This goes a long way in enhancing the general security within the school/ college. It is for these two reasons that principals and other school administrators are advised to have the RFID attendance system for school.
