A guard tour patrol system is a system for logging the rounds of employees in a variety of situations such as security guards patrolling property, technicians monitoring climate-controlled environments.
It helps ensure that the employee makes his or her appointed rounds at the correct intervals and can offer a record for legal or insurance reasons. Such systems have existed for many years using mechanical watch clock-based systems (watchman clocks/guard tour clocks/patrol clocks). Computerized systems were first introduced in Europe in the early 1980s and in North America in 1986. Modern systems are based on handheld data loggers and RFID sensors.
The system provides a means to record the time when the employee reaches certain points on their tour. Checkpoints or watch stations are commonly placed at the extreme ends of the tour route and at critical points such as vaults, specimen refrigerators, vital equipment, and access points. Some systems are set so that the interval between stations is timed so if the employee fails to reach each point within a set time, other staff is dispatched to ensure the employee's well-being.
This is a novel approach comes in the form of a hand held device that has a small flashlight. Every guard has been assigned a unique ID button that will be detected when the device is activated and from then on the device acts becomes a tracking as well as monitoring device.
Exemplary service rendered and amiable customer support system. Was a pleasure working with Redcorp. Will recommend to anyone wanting technological solutions.
