5″ Touch Screen Display with Powerful quad-core Cortex-A17 1.6GHz with Android

An intuitive user interface on the biometric fingerprint scanner makes it easy to navigate and quick to select the desired action such as clocking in or out, registering breaks, and choosing activities; as well as performing employee self-service functions including requesting leave and checking balances.

Fast And Accurate Fingerprint Recognition

Available in 25K templates, fingerprint enrolment can be performed either on the device itself, or remotely using an optional USB scanner that connects to your computer.

Once a user is enrolled, their templates can be automatically sent to all other devices on the network, allowing any other authorised device to be used.

In addition, a built-in reader enables Mifare, Proximity, HID, and HID iCLASS card/fob options.

Safe And Secure

Fingerprint templates are stored safely and securely as proprietary algorithms.

No images are captured, and the algorithm cannot be used to recreate an image of the fingerprint. GDPR compliance is assured.


Authentication is performed on the device itself, so if network connectivity is lost, it will continue to operate as normal and simply upload captured data once connection is restored.

What’s more, in the event of a power outage, its back-up battery will keep the device operational for up to 2.5 hours.


Synergy 5 Fingerprint can be used as part of Synergy Workforce, your complete workforce management solution from Synel, and is also compatible with a growing list of third-party platforms that demand the very best in data capture performance.

In addition, with Synel’s Synergy Connect service, integration with new platforms can be achieved simply and quickly.
