Info about Business Security Global security guard system -
A rugged reader is the core of any security guard tour system a rugged hand-held device the size and shape of a small flashlight. The heart of the guarding system, The reader records data contained in tamper- and weather-resistant touch memory buttons. These buttons are smaller in diameter to a 10p piece and roughly 3 times as thick. Each button contains a microchip and a unique ID number.
Buttons can represent locations, incidents or officers — as determined by the guarding software. When an officer touches the reader to a button, The reader beeps and flashes its LED, confirming that the button's ID has been successfully recorded. The system cannot be circumvented or defeated.
Planning and Setup
A security manager plans guard tours to meet the security and safety requirements of the facility. The manager decides where officers are to patrol, and determines where checkpoints will be located to ensure that the officer has actually visited an area.
The security manager also decides what incidents or observations are to be recorded. These vary depending on the type of facility and the specific security needs. An officer may be expected to confirm, by reading an incident button, that specific doors were locked, an area was free from debris or spills, and so forth.
The security manager can also set up special tours such as safety checks for AEDs, fire extinguishers, or exit signs.
Performing a Tour
At the start of a shift or before beginning a patrol, an officer uses the reader to read his or her unique officer button. This ensures that all subsequent tour activity is associated with that officer. The officer is now ready to visit each of the location buttons on the route, touching the reader to each button to confirm the visit.
As the officer moves from location button to location button, touching each with the reader, the reader records the time and the location button ID.
Buttons are physically mounted at these locations — on walls, floors, in closets, inside or outside of a facility, or adjacent to fire extinguishers to facilitate periodic extinguisher checks. Various types of mounting hardware can be used depending on the location, with more secure hardware designed for areas where vandalism is a possibility.
Recording Incidents and Observations
Officer and location buttons confirm the officer's identity and where the officer visited. Incident buttons provide additional information. Depending on the requirements and procedures set by the security manager, the officer may read one or more incident buttons at a location to record security or safety conditions.
The nature of incidents depends on the setting. In a corporate environment, incidents might include broken windows, lights out, running water, or fire extinguisher charge status. Incident buttons are held in a specially designed wallet containing up to 12 incident buttons, each one corresponding to a specific event or observation.
When an officer observes an incident for which there is a corresponding button, he simply uses the reader to read the relevant button to record the event(s).
When a tour is completed (or anytime, since the reader can hold several days or weeks of information, depending upon use) the officer or supervisor downloads the data by placing the reader into a downloader, which automatically transfers the data to a PC. Downloader versions are available for direct connection to a PC, or for transfer via LAN, WAN, or the Internet.
Each reader holds 4883 button reads and can be fully downloaded in less than a minute. Once the data has been successfully transferred, all button reads stored in the reader are cleared and it is ready to be used for a new tour.
Guard tour software processes the information gathered by the reader and produces a variety of reports. These typically include summary reports or detail reports filtered by tour, by a specific location or set of locations, or by date range. Tour reports and rule reports show whether all locations were visited as required. Download reports show each button read, in sequence.
Exception reports and innovative display applications like Rounds Tracker simplify the manager's job by quickly pointing to problems, permitting management by exception with less time and effort.
We are able to provide security officers to cover your requirements 24hours per day 365 days of the year.
