Real Time Guard Tour Solution

Real Time Networks offers a wireless, real time guard tour solution that automatically records the precise time guards reach each checkpoint.

  • No action required by the guards, the system always knows exactly where they are.
  • Does not require line of sight, checkpoints can be hidden.
  • Guards do not need to access checkpoints.
  • Long range Active-RFID checkpoints automatically detect guards when they are within 1 to 5 meters (3 to 16 feet).
  • The system is battery powered - easy to install.
  • Full range of management reports available.

How it works

Battery powered wireless checkpoints are installed at key locations. When on tour, the guard’s active-RFID badges are detected by the wireless checkpoints when they are within 1 to 5 meters, and the battery powered checkpoints automatically identify and timestamp the guard’s IDs and relay them to the control center. If they do not reach a checkpoint on time, an alert is automatically raised.

  • The read range of each wireless checkpoint can be individually configured as required.
  • The control center records the precise time each guard is located at each checkpoint.

System Components

Our Real-Time Guard Tour Solution accurately tracks a guard’s progress on his/her tour. The system comprises of:

  • Personnel/Guard Badges: Active-RFID badges uniquely identify each guard.
  • Asset Tag: Active-RFID tags uniquely identify each asset.
  • Wireless Checkpoints: Battery powered wireless checkpoints are configured to detect the ID of all badges within a specific range: 1 meter (39 inches), to 5 meters (16 feet). When the checkpoints receive a signal from badges within their area, they timestamp the event and transmit the time and ID to the system.
  • RFID Readers: Active-RFID readers are strategically located throughout the building; they detect signals from all the wireless checkpoints within their zone.
  • Control Centre Software that is completely configurable. An exhaustive range of reports can be produced, either to cover a period (days, weeks, months etc.), or an alarm can be raised immediately an exception occurs. This can be when a tour does not take place.

Keep Security Personnel Accountable

  • Track security personnel and monitor their location
  • Records progress at each checkpoint without any action required from the guard
  • Allows to determine each guard’s efficiency; number of rounds in each timeframe, time to do one round, etc.
  • Locate guards easily and call them to an incident faster
  • Easily manage and provide security for your personnel 
  • Generate reporting and analytical information based on location for audit
