All-in-one bodycam for workforce tracking

Residential Estate Security Handbook 2020 Access Control & Identity Management

The SecuTraq MP5 is an all-in-one body-worn camera (BWC) to assist in keeping track of guards on site in real time. Whether you want to do close monitoring of individuals or manage thousands of guards with GPS tracking, SecuTraq can assist with guarding workforce tracking and management.

The SecuTraq MP5 offers:

• GSM data communication.

• Battery backup: up to 6 hours of battery life.

• Real-time tracking: GPS tracking and GPRS for remote areas.

• Camera: sends photos and video clips to the control room immediately.

• Panic button: send distress signal instantly to control room when guard is in distress.

All of the above happens in real time, making this a powerful GPS tracking platform by using familiar components of guarding such as checkpoints, reports and incident management, using technology to provide an easy-to-use, completely integrated guarding platform.

The SecuTraq platform used to monitor the MP5 bodycam is cloud-based, meaning you can monitor your guards/workforce from anywhere and at any time. It also allows the control room operator to request photos and video clips remotely, monitor signal strength, battery levels, tampering, panic activations, etc.

The control room can manage guards with route planning where they can pre-plan an exact route to be controlled via virtual waypoints throughout the site. Using geo-fence definitions, late arrivals and early abscondments can be managed.

The MP5 also boasts:

• 5 megapixel recording.

• PTT (Push to Talk) functionality.

• 4G cellular network.

• Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

• HD 1080p camera with 130-degree angles.

• Infrared light.

• Night vision.

The SecuTraq MP5 BWC empowers, protects, and manages your guarding force, while enabling control room operators to take control of the units remotely when a guard may not be responding. Additionally, the SecuTraq platform is cloud-based; meaning you can monitor your guards from anywhere in the world.
