Flat Time Tracker
Work time tracker device
- FTT is small wearable device for work time tracking. It is designed from the beginning to serve its main purpose - track work time automatically and
- be always accessible. It is so small and flat that can fit inside of badge holder.
- Any time current working hours can be viewed on LCD screen. On demand, by pressing VIEW button it will show whole week results as well as summary for each day and week letting user to properly manage working time.
- FTT is simple. RFID mode let it operate in fully automated mode. In fact user should forget about FTT existence. It will automatically save your time when entering building as well as when leaving. Manually run/stop time by pressing button also possible.
- FTT is completely independent. Small standard size battery able to make it run without any intervention for 3 months.
- FTT has communication port. Any time user can upload weekly time-sheet to computer using USB communication cable.
Here is FTT operations demonstration video.
Do I need FTT? How hard is it to check the time you arrive and leave?
Many of us work with flexible hours. Consider traffic and delays happening every day. It is different entry and leaving time every day. FTT helps to track daily and weekly summary work hours. Having your weekly summary hours you will not overwork if it is not needed. Or alternatively do not under-work. Be precise using FTT.
Why can't an app do this?
Apps on mobile or PC require some action to trigger time. Manually Start/Stoping in app inconvenient and cannot be precise. Moreover, you can forget.
Can my mobile detect RFID signal?
Mobile phones unable to detect RFID signals used on office entry due to hardware limitations. They just not designed for that. FTT using RFID can detect work start time and stop time automatically.
Is NFC used in mobiles can detect RFID signal?
Don't we have check-in, checkout for that? Or even badges, this is kinda overkill.
Check-in checkout systems with badges mainly serve to companies to calculate wages according work hours. Very often worker do not have easy and immediate access to that information. By not having exact working time you need to fill time-sheet manually or use software tool to calculate hours. As described above FTT has advantage over software tools.
I'm managing small group. Some people under-work by 35-40 min in week and wonder why they did not get paid for full week.
FTT can help them to track and manage their times properly.
Do I need to install RFID device on door to detect time with FTT?
No. FTT uses already installed company RFID security door lock system. Security door lock system activated by your badge ID, when you swipe it. FTT detects availability of that signal to fix time. Only availability of RFID signal is detected. Actual door lock codes are encrypted and cannot be used anyhow by FTT.
Can FTT signal interfere with door/base to ID card interactions?
No. FTT is passive device. It just activates by RFID signals and save activation time. It does not radiate any signal therefore cannot interfere with communication between user RFID card and the base.
Can I use FTT without Badge ID?
Yes, FTT is standalone device. It has Start/Stop buttons, which allows to fix time manually too. However, In these cases RFID detection function will not operate.
Can I adjust my Start or Stop time in FTT?
Any stored times editing is possible in FTT using buttons. Also your times can be edited after uploading week time-sheet table from FTT to PC or mobile device.
Our company does not have any RFID door lock hardware. Can I Just press Start/Stop every time?
We have asked trial users provide feedback on trial run.
"Using FTT I've been able to save hours of my time simply by better managing of work time" Rohan. Trial user.
"It is useful. I'm working in office with flexible hours. This device keep track of my time on daily and weekly bases." VJ. Trial user.
"Thanks to FTT I never stress about working hours and know exactly time when I should leave workplace. I can spent more time with my family." GS Trial user.

We are group of engineers joined around idea of creation Flat Time Tracker.
Risks and challenges
We have made significant effort in design process to verify FTT manufacturability. Our knowledgeable and skilled team members will contribute during process of going high volume production.
Plastic moulding will be done right after Kickstarter campaign. Our mechanical engineers have multi-year experience related with plastic moulding design for toys, which can contribute this process.
Finial assembly, testing, packaging and delivery will be done under our immediate supervision and care to ensure highest quality of product.
We are dedicated to meet time-schedule and deliver product in-time.
Regular weekly or forthrightly updates will be provided to backers outlining the progress.
Thank you for your support!
