TimeKeeper works with the majority of Android and iOs devices. There are a number of simple requirements that the device must have for TimeKeeper to run successfully:

Hardware Requirements for Tablet

If you are planning to use photos and facial recognition the device must have a front facing camera (to take clock in photographs)
The device must have internet connectivity be that over ethernet or Wi-Fi (preferred)
Hardware accessories should work in Portrait mode

Hardware Requirements for Mobile

The device must have a GPS sensor - i.e. the device must be able to detect "Your Location" in Google Maps
The device must have internet connectivity be that over ethernet or Wi-Fi (preferred)

This covers the majority of mobile and tablet devices. So if you have an existing Android or iOs device, it will probably work. 

Recommended Value Tablets

Generally we recommend a 10 inch tablet if using on-premise as this is a good size device for people being able to see. 

7 inch tablets will also work fine, just might be more difficult to see as it's a smaller screen.

Tablet Mounts (Wall + Tablet)

Perhaps you want to fix your tablet to the wall or to a desk. Perhaps security is top of your mind. There are a number of options available for your every need. Timekeeper only functions in portrait mode, so you need a stand that will allow you to fix the tablet this way.

Rugged Cases

If the tablet is in a zone where it requires extreme protection, you may require a rugged tablet case.

Ethernet Accessories

If you don't have Wi-Fi you might need a few adapters to both power your tablet and provide it with internet via ethernet.

Power over Ethernet Accessories
Most tablets have 1 micro USB port, so you will need additional accessories to charge this tablet at the same time as providing internet through ethernet.

For Power over Ethernet to the tablet with charging, you can use this specialised adapter.
