Where to Put Your JobClock at a Job Site

JobClocks can be placed almost anywhere. While they are designed to be weather-resistant, we still recommend placing them in a protected area that your employees can readily access or congregate around such as a break area.

JobClock EX/LE

You can padlock your JobClock to almost anything such as fences, walls, toolboxes, trees, plumbing, etc.

If you do not want to or cannot padlock your JobClock to something, you can also leave it somewhere secure such as inside a work trailer, toolboxes, on-site safes, and pull it out when needed for employees to clock in/out.

If placed outdoors, be careful with weather such as rain. While the JobClock can resist some water, there is a limit to how much water it can resist. Think of it like newer smartphones. While they can survive being dunked in water, they may not be able to survive extended periods of water exposure. 

JobClock Hornet

If using a JobClock Hornet, you can attach it to a fence, piping, etc. with the help of a chain/bicycle lock through the large handle of the Hornet.

You can also keep it free-standing on a job site by placing it on a table, desk, truck tailgate, etc.

The most important aspect to consider is helping the JobClock Hornet get the best cellular signal possible to wirelessly communicate any collected records. Some common locations that can prevent a stable cellular signal include, but are not limited to, shipping containers or basements.

If the location of the job site prevents a stable cellular signal, such as a forest, mountains, or a rural area with no cellular coverage, then it may be best to have someone bring the JobClock Hornet to an area that could offer cellular coverage such as a town to reboot. After confirming that the record has sent its records, they can return the Hornet for the employees to use. For example, this can be done when a supervisor is going home/hotel/motel at the end of the day, then bringing the JobClock Hornet back in the morning for the employees. 

If placed outdoors, be careful with weather such as rain. While the JobClock can resist some water, there is a limit to how much water it can resist. Think of it like newer smartphones. While they can survive being dunked in water, they may not be able to survive extended periods of water exposure. 

Additional Protection

To further protect your investment in JobClocks, you could use a lock and cable for your Hornet or the JobClock Lockbox™, a protective enclosure for your JobClock/EX or JobClock/LE. Contact your account manager for more details about these enclosures.
