Attendance marking machine: the first IoT application for our office
The attendance monitoring system created with Nios4
Thanks to the synchronization of the data in Nios4 and the library realized with Python, we crafted our first real IoT application.
Using one Raspberry Zero device and one RFID reader, we realized an attendance marking system for our workplace with less than 100 euros.
The employees passed their ID badge and the machine sent their data directly to the D-One’s Cloud. From there, the data were available on all of our devices.
This way, the administrative personnel could quickly generate the monthly reports and each employee could check the information about his worked hours.
We also realized a battery version to allow its use everywhere and even without internet, because Nios4 is a system that runs also with no connection.
