Patrol Management System is a software that has a mobile and web component that enables security managers to track the patrolling operations by creating routes and assigning the security guards to do the patrolling and registering the activity by scanning QR codes/NFC tags/RFID/BLE and also by using GPS
tracking at various checkpoints at scheduled intervals. The security guards can also raise incidents instantly. The security guard performance analytics helps in improving the overall security operations..
The first Guard tour system were the touch readers with software. Upon further development, more working modes for the readers became available. Such as RFID and GPS. And the communication of readers and software was connected with USB cables or download stations. For USB connection, the Pogo Pin connection is very popular. Because the contacts with gold-plating are very stable and waterproof.
Guard ID tags: there are touch ibuttons or RFID tags. The guard ID tags replace the name of guard.
Event wallets: there are many event tags in it. And they are touch ibuttons or RFID tags. Each tag means one event thing. When the reader reads the tag, it will get the event. For example, fire, stolen, broken.
QR Codes: some systems use QR codes or barcodes instead of electronic tags and the associated readers. The codes are often printed on stickers which can be easily placed nearly anywhere, changed (to ensure accountability) or added to change touring routes.
