GUARD TOUR SYSTEM IN REAL TIME

ACTIVE GUARD
  • personel protection system – MAN DOWN function
  • voice communication device
  • contactless technology
  • presskeys in resistant housing

The first in the world real-time guard control system

Active Guard is the most advanced, first of its kind in the world, system for monitoring the time, place and results of the work of personnel. By combining benefits of GPRS communication and RFID reading Active Guard can be used as a guard tour system (Lone Worker Protection), a personnel protection system and a voice communications device. Active Guard ensures the ability to react immediately, which helps increase the safety and quality of work. It gives instant irregularity warning.

Designed for guard control, Active Guard is a highly flexible system and can be used also for other purposes, e.g. access control and identification, technical inspection monitoring, storage and rental systems monitoring, or maintenance systems.


How it works

Active Guard is the only device which needs a guardian to provide him with communication, security, and enable his superior control of the round. Intuitive operation provides three buttons:

PANIC BUTTON (1)

PANIC button can be used in case of emergencies. When PANIC button is being pressed device send an emergency signal to the monitoring station to ask for help. It is possible to record the voice communication surrounding the device by the monitoring system communication and show the position of device if it is supported by GSM network.

RFID READER (2)

Thanks to RFID reader Active Guard allows to control guard tours on basis of RFID tags placed on the round course. Monitoring software allows to establish timeframes for RFID tag reading. If no reading is recorded within specified time, the monitoring station notifies of irregularities.

CALL ME BUTTON (3)

Active Guard allows also for GSM two-way voice communication. CALL ME button allows to send signal via GPRS to monitoring station to ask for reply (when it’s pressed shortly) or to call directly to authorized number when it is pressed longer (i.e. police, fire station, supervisor, etc.). It is also possible to call the device from authorized number at any time.


Features and benefits of Active Guard device

  • Remote configuration – comfortable maintenance and time saver
  • Encryption of transmitted date – full safety of data transfer
  • Increased event buffer capacity up to 1000 events – long lasting and easy device operation in areas with no GSM network coverage
  • System event history – evidence up to 5000 events enabling to diagnose causes of possible problems
  • Device status monitoring – diagnostic mode for person implementing system
  • Increased sensitivity of RFID reader – better device usage comfort
  • Circuit enabling testing if device was not exposed to strong electromagnetic field i.e microwave origin – lesser device breakdown, higher reliability due to increased anti-sabotage security
  • Retransmission of incoming SMS – monitoring of transmission costs by retransmitting the SMS to operator about limit violation
  • MAN-DOWN function – notification of threats to the life of the user
  • Power down by button combination – feature enables to switch off device in designated areas without necessity of housing opening
  • Modern, 4 band modem u-blox – secure GSM connection
  • Comfortable programming/debugging socket – easy and quick way for full device configuration using computer and cable
  • Capability of adding a Bluetooth module- possibility to expand system by extra accessories (headset, GPS module)
  • New, more durable housing (silicone gaskets, more screws, additional shock absorbers)
  • Registered battery lid opening event after main battery discharge – increased anti-sabotage security

Operating diagram of ACTIVE GUARDBenefits of using Active Guard

  • Reduction of the equipment costs
  • Increase physical security effectiveness
  • Low cost of monitoring
  • Easy implementation and use
  • Quality improvement of supervisors work
  • Higher prestige and competitiveness of modern equipment user
  • Product is still developed what means that all eventual failures and defects are removed and new functions are added

Three in one – Panic button, RFID reader and voice communication device – makes, that worker can be equipped only in AG, without necessary of having eg. mobile phone (cost reduction)

Anti-sabotage protection

  • Saving the data even in the case of total destruction of the reader.
  • Resistance to any kind of weather conditions (cold, moisture, heat).
  • Safety for workers
  • Resistant to destruction attempts
  • Notification of all mechanical attempts to destroy device
  • Detector, which allows to determine whether the device was exposed to strong electromagnetic fields e.g. the origin of microwave
  • Higher reliability due to increased anti-sabotage security

DESIGN AND FUNCTIONALITIES

Built-in accelerometer delivers

  • Man-down detection – notification about life-threatening of the user
  • Excessive shock detection – notification about attempt to destroy the device
  • Tilt detection with configurable positions and angles – notification about changing the position of the device – sends alarm signal if the angle is outside the defined range

RESISTANCE TO DESTRUCTION:

AG 3 housing optimization
The new housing is more comfortable, durable and changes were focused on:

Vibration absorption
6 shock absorption rings were added between the AG3 housing and motherboard

Silicone gasket
Silicone gasket placed in special grooves in the housing – for better durability and tightness

More screws
Added main screws and screws on the battery cover resulted in better distribution of forces during a fall

Keyboard
Keyboard is newly designed and protected against strong press

Registering of battery lid opening
Lid opening event is registered anytime even after the main battery is discharged

Microwave exposure detection
The detector allows to determine, whether the device was exposed to strong electromagnetic fields e.g. the origin of microwaves


MORE ADVANTAGES AND FEATURES

  • Remote configuration and firmware upgrade – comfortable servicing and time savings
  • Notification of attempts to mechanically destroy the device
  • Instant irregularity warning
  • Saving the data even in case of mechanical destruction of the reader (except over-voltage)
  • Encryption of transmitted data using AES cipher – full data transfer safety
  • A choice between three leading modem manufacturers – adapts the device to buyer´s personal preferences
  • Power down by button combination – feature enables to turn off the device operation in areas with no GSM network coverage
  • System event history – job log evidence up to 5000 events help to diagnose possible problems
  • ALARM event memory capacity is 1000 events – long lasting and easy device operation in areas with no GSM network coverage

WHERE THE SYSTEM BRINGS SAVINGS?

  • Bring savings due to optimization of all performed duties
  • Decrease total number of employees (guards + management)
  • Decrease the travel expenses and time control of the employees by management
  • Increase people performance and safety
  • Decrease costs when using mobile phones by security guards in communication with the operations centre
  • The ability to centralize the management, control and analysis in combination with free distribution of field services
