  2. The palm enrollment on the terminal itself can be a bit “tricky”. Please use a hand guide for enrollment. Once hand presented wait until unit beeps ones and green led comes on. Then remove your hand and present it again. Wait until you hear a beep once again and both led’s turns on green. If you hear double-beep, the procedure wasn’t complete correctly and enrollment failed. It is recommended to use a local USB sensor for enrollment.

The green color will represent that the user was synchronized to the units successfully, the red one – task failed, orange – represent that task was completed with errors (the user data wasn’t synchronized to all terminals).
