If you want to monitor if people assigned to a tour patrol task are completing their duties on time and at their correct locations then a guard tour system is the solution for this task. You can easily track where and when were the patrols were made.
There are 3 types of guard tour systems offered by ProxiGuard: Stand Alone, 4G Real-Time Guard Tour (Based on 4G Reader) cloud-based, and ProxiGuard Live based on iOS or Android App on a smartphone also cloud-based.
The system consists of RFID chips and it works by installing a series of RFID Tags (each with its own unique global identification number) along patrol routes and having patrol personnel perform readings on the tags using a handheld reader. These recorded tag numbers along with each associated time stamps are later uploaded via communication adapters to computers for processing and verification. The outcome of the process can be displayed on the screen, printed, or emailed so that managers can review at once the job performance data of the patrolling personnel. You can track things like attendance, locations patrolled, timeliness, incidents and etc.
User-friendliness is the key feature of any software. This guard tour system is highly user-friendly and easy to use. Users can easily create detailed and graphical map reports. Since the software is cloud-based, it can be easily accessed from anywhere and from any device.

Many of you might be wondering what is RFID? “Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is an automatic identification method, relying on storing and remotely retrieving data using devices called RFID tags or transponders.”
An RFID tag can be incorporated into a product, animal, or person for the purpose of identification using radio waves. Chip-based RFID tags contain silicon chips and antennas.
There are two types of tags, Active and Passive. The passive tags require no internal power source, whereas active tags require a power source.
Commonly known as “Proxy” or “contactless cards” RFID cards come in three general varieties: passive, semi-passive (also known as semi-active), or active. ProxiGuard uses passive cards.
