Front:

The front of the Hornet has 2 main areas, the top Hornet Light Indicators and the JobClock.

The JobClock is where employees can clock in/out, activate Bluetooth on the Hornet, or collect records with a FastTrakker Pro.

Back:

The back of the hornet has 3 main areas, the serial numbers, the battery cover, and the charging port with Manager Button.

The serial number is used during the setup of your Hornet with TimeSummit.

The charging port is used with the associated wall or car charger and the Manager Button.

Battery Compartment:

The battery compartment contains 2 batteries and the power switch.

The rechargable black battery is used to power the antenna which allows the Hornet to transmit its records wirelessly.

The smaller non-rechargable battery (Lithium 123) is used to power the JobClock which allows your employees to Clock In/Out and activate Bluetooth.

Battery Life:

Hornet Battery: 21 days on average.

The Hornet lights will flash and flicker in specific ways to convey information quickly to workers at the jobsite.
