NFC tags are installed at regular intervals at each patrol route for monitoring purpose. Each guard is assigned with an NFC tags are installed at regular intervals at each patrol route for monitoring
purpose. Each guard is assigned with an NFC-enabled phone during his patrol
rounds. When the guard places the phone near any tags, a signal is sent to
TimeTec Patrol’s cloud portal along with information regarding the identity,
time, and exact location of the guard.
TimeTec Patrol cloud portal can be configured in such a way that if the guard
is not punctual in his patrol rounds, either late or early clocking at predefined
checkpoints, automated notifications can be sent to notify supervisors or the
management about the tardiness for rectification.
TimeTec Patrol app is loaded with useful features for guards to perform patrol
tasks, such as reporting of incidents, receiving adhoc tasks, and instant
reporting during emergency; and with the app, monitoring of guards’ locations
in real-time is made easy. NFC still works in buildings with poor GPS reception
because the location data associated with the NFC tags will be transmitted
without delays when the phone returns to a location with good reception.
