Collecting from Your Jobclock/EX or Jobclock Hornet via Bluetooth

JobClock Reader is a portion of ExakTime Mobile for Android that is used to collect records from any JobClock/EX and/or JobClock Hornet.

If you have not yet installed and setup ExakTime Mobile, you can refer to the following article: ExakTime Mobile Quick Start

If you are collecting from a Hornet with a serial number starting with 6200XXXX, then you do not need to pair with it and can skip to Collecting From Your JobClock.

Requirements:

  • JobClock/EX (black plastic) or JobClock Hornet
  • Android Device with:
    • Internet Access (via Cellular data or Wi-Fi)
    • Bluetooth Capability
  • ExakTime Mobile for Android installed
  • Any Keytab (Color does not matter and does not have to be associated with any employee.)

Pairing Your Android Device With Your JobClock

The images below were captured on a Samsung Galaxy S9+. The steps may differ depending on the manufacturer of your Android device, but the idea is consistent across Android.

  • On your JobClock/EX, activate the Bluetooth by holding your keytab to the touchplate as if you were clocking in, but continue to hold it for 5-10 seconds.
    • You may hear a beep as if you are clocking in, DO NOT move your keytab.
    • When you see a blue light and an audio tone, the Bluetooth has been activated. You can now pull your keytab away.
    • The Bluetooth will be active for about 1 minute, then turn off automatically. As long as the blue light is on, Bluetooth is active.
  • Go to the Bluetooth settings of your device.
