Replacing the Battery
The JobClock/EX and LE are powered by a Lithium 123 battery which will generally last you 6 months and is located behind the backplate of the unit.
- Loosen the allen screw with the included allen key on the back to allow the backplate to rotate counter-clockwise (the allen screw does not have to be fully removed). The size of allen key required is 1/16".
- When the backplate has been removed, the battery will be exposed. Remove the battery and insert the new battery. There will be a brief loud noise if the battery has enough power.
- Reattach the backplate and tighten the allen screw.
- Collect from the JobClock with a supported device to set the current date and time. Not collecting off the JobClock after inserting the battery can cause issues with future clock ins/outs.
JobClock Not Accepting Punches
If employees are not hearing any sound or seeing the lights flash when clocking in/out on the JobClock, you will need to tighten the center screw of the JobClock. The center allen screw is used to connect the touch plate to the internals of your JobClock and help record each clock in/out. This center screw can loosen itself due to temperature changes of cold to hot and vice-versa.
You can access the center screw behind the battery of the JobClock. The size of the center allen screw is 5/64". You would only need to loosen the center allen screw slightly, then tighten back down until you begin to feel some resistance.
Once retightened, simply try to clock in/out again.
Turning On Bluetooth
On your JobClock hardware, 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.
