OnGuard

May 2016 News, Conferences & Events

OnGuard Mobi is built into a touchscreen mobile phone that allows supervisors to keep track of guards who are also carrying the devices. Amongst a number of useful functions, the rugged phone allows supervisors to add reminders for guards, receive and make calls with employees and change patrol patterns. The app offers a much more efficient alternative to a page of instructions stuck up in the guardroom, and the BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) points aim to boost this efficiency.

With the new BLE points, keeping track of whether a guard is patrolling the correct route has never been easier. Using the always-on capabilities of this energy-saving Bluetooth technology, guards carrying the app-enabled phone will be automatically ‘clocked’ as having visited the point, without even having to remove the device from their pocket. The BLE points have a battery life of five years.

Bluelock, OnGuard’s Bluetooth receiver, allows the user to open gates and doors using their mobile phone. The receiver is easily paired with Android or iPhones by scanning a QR code supplied in the enclosed packaging. OnGuard has developed an encoding algorithm that prevents hacking of the technology. Benefits are that the owner may send one-time tokens to co-workers to allow them temporary or permanent access to the property.

The company will also be launching its Web-based rostering system and biometric time and attendance. Enter on the stand to win prizes.
