Monitoring points are installed at strategic areas around the site. These monitoring points are plastic holders with a screw mount (screws not supplied). No cabling is required for installation or set-up. The standard Guardlog kit comes with 10 monitoring points, with more available on request.
The guard is then issued with a baton and an employee card/tag. On starting a patrol, the guard “clocks-on” to the baton using his employee card/tag to register his identity.
The guard must visit specific points along a given route, at predetermined intervals. If applicable, a supervisor can also record at which time he visited a guard by “clocking-on” to the guard’s baton using his supervisor card/tag.
When the next guard begins his patrol, he can take over the same baton by following Step 2 above.
On a daily and/or weekly basis, the site supervisor collects the baton to download the data to the PC via the docking station. The docking station plugs into a PC USB port.
The patrol data is then merged with the site database and exception reports for missed points, excessive delays and missed patrols can be viewed and printed. Historical and more detailed data is also available through the comprehensive reporting options on the Guardlog software.
