NCheck Bio Attendance license is not permitted for client applications such as NCheck Bio Attendance Lite for Windows, Android and IOS applications where users are allowed to use only basic features.

Purchasing Licenses

There are four licenses available to activate the NCheck Bio Attendance server and Standard client application such as NCheck Bio Attendance Standard for Windows and Android.

  1. Trial license

    30 days trial period available for NCheck Bio Attendance Standard including all features. After the expiration of the trial period, it’s required to purchase a valid NCheck Bio Attendance license. The device/computer should be connected to the internet in order to validate the trial license when the NCheck Bio Attendance server or client application is started.

  2. Serial number

    Serial numbers are used to activate licenses for NCheck Bio Attendance clients. Each serial number requires activation for a SDK component to run. The activation uses internet connection. When internet connection is not possible, a serial number can be activated by sending an email. After a successful activation the network connection is not required for this licensing.

    Note

    • Activation by serial number is not suitable for virtual environments.

    • When a license was activated, client hardware cannot be changed. If hardware was updated or changed, a license should be deactivated ( page 28).

    • Generated hardware Id can be activated on Neurotechnology website.

  3. License file

    License file consist with the same features as serial numbers. But user can purchase a license file for number of users and validity period to activate the product.

  4. Internet license file

    Internet license can be stored on a computer or a mobile/embedded device. This license is constantly checked over the Internet. Internet connection should be available periodically for a short amount of time. You do not need to activate these type of licenses. Only constant internet connection for a short period of time is required to check license. Also, internet licenses can be transferred to another computer or device by moving the license file there and waiting until the previous activation expires.

  5. NCheck Bio Attendance dongle

    NCheck Bio Attendance licenses may be stored in a dongle (volume license manager), hardware-based protection lock storing purchased licenses. When licenses are saved in the USB dongle, activation may be performed without connection to the Internet and is suitable for virtual environments. The main benefits when using dongle compared to serial numbers are these:

    • One dongle can store many licenses for different Neurotechnology products.

    • Provides licenses to local devices or other devices over TCP network.

    • Dongle can be remotely updated.

    • License files can be generated offline from a dongle.

    • Licenses are not tied to device’s hardware - when one device releases a license, it can be used by another device in the same network (after certain period of time - depending on a license type this period is 15 minutes to 12 hours).
