Tracking visitors in estates

1 July 2020 Access Control & Identity Management

With many options for controlling access to estates, there are few that are able to monitor what the visitor does once inside. Do they go to the person they are seeing or delivering something to, or do they drive around to check out the scenery – or see what potential targets there are for theft or vandalism, or what the security in the estate is like?

Local company, BetaTrac Telematic Solutions, has developed a simple solution to assist with tracking visitors once they pass the estate’s gate. The eTrac provides a solution to track courier, contractor and visitor vehicles within housing and commercial estates using live real-time monitoring software.

The security guard at the gate places an eTrac on the vehicle (see image) in a high-visibility area. The guard then scans the vehicle VIN number and the driver’s licence, and enters the eTrac ID number. Once the data is captured by the scanner, the vehicle enters the estate.

The eTrac can now track and monitor the vehicle every 30 seconds by streaming data and alerts about location, speed, entering restricted areas, as well as alerts on vehicles that have been stationary for exceptionally long periods of time.

When the vehicle returns to the exit gate, the security guard reverses the process by re-scanning the vehicle’s and driver’s details. The scanner will indicate that an eTrac was attached, the guard removes it and the vehicle is allowed to exit. If there were any incidents within the estate, the suspect’s vehicle with the eTrac attached can easily be traced by history route reports.

Key elements of the eTrac solution

• Intelligence gathering via constant 30 second data streaming.

• Adding a new dimension of secure monitoring of vehicles.

• Ease of deployment, seconds to place on vehicle.

• Live track and trace of vehicles entering and roaming around on an estate.

• Powerful management tool with reports and visual playback.

• Instant alerts on speeding and entering restricted areas.

• Always on duty 24/7/365, data tracing every 30 seconds.

• Proven reliability with BetaTrac’s AIMSS monitoring software.
