hi

i just wanted to know if anybody could help me on how to go about reading an input from a biometrics or proximity reader. see, i have a project that needs to track employee time and attendance, but the employees either use fingerprint scanning or proximity cards. how could i read their input? would i be needing an SDK or is there another way? i sure hope there is another way so i will not be forced to buy the reader provider's SDK. please help!

One would assume so. The readers that you have. Do the manufacturer not supply any SDK's? Have u checked their websites?

I found a few links that may get u started
