If I may make a suggestion.

If you are worried about presence, use Biometrics.

Logins for office wouldn't work for example if there is a VPN, which 
will not prove presence.

Biometrics though can prove identity and presence to a higher degree of 

Video is nice to have, but too easy to defeat.

At least if you have to cut someones finger off, or cut their eye out of 
their head you make the effort parcel to murder...

and of course, as everyone here knows on this list...THATS when it 
starts to get interesting.

At that point in time, its time to call me as I like cases like that.
