What are Patrol Systems?
Commonly referred to as Guard Tour systems or Guard Patrol systems, it is vital to choose the right one to do the right job, at the right price.
Advances in technology has produced some major improvements over the years since Watchmans clocks were used.
Guards used a mechanical clock with a wax disk that had keys with different patterns imprinted on to it which could be inspected by the site manager.
The first electronic systems started to appear in the Mid 1980’s with recent developments of GPS and the mobile phone GSM network bringing systems up to date.
The basic principle is to determine and record the location of a security guard, cleaner, home-carer – or any mobile employee – at specific times, whilst working on remote sites, in shopping centres, or wherever.
There are four key components to a Guard Tour system:
• Guard Tour handheld data collector
• Location checkpoint
• Incident recording facility
• Management software
The worker carries a compact, rugged, handheld device. When a checkpoint is scanned with this reader, the unit is time and date stamped: ready to populate the management software with the contract critical T&A (Time & Attendance) data.
Handheld units differ in a number of ways. Key variations include robustness, size, battery life and mode of data transmission (GSM/ GPRS/ PC Download).
Only the best is good enough for our customers – at the right price to ensure value. We:
• use the very latest in technology to improve and underwrite the safety and compliance of thousands of mobile workers across the UK
• hold exclusive distribution agreements with some of the most innovative electronics manufacturers in the world.
Guardtour is NOT a manufacturer, we have the ability and experience to look at which products we think are the current market leaders and bring the best features and value whilst being fit for purpose.
