BetaTrac Telematics Solutions has just released its Real-Time Mobile Image Surveillance Platform to the security industry, bringing visual image monitoring and surveillance facilities to control-rooms of diverse operations, where the security of personnel, goods and vehicles is paramount.
Keith Lawrence, BetaTrac CEO, says, “Despite world-wide availability of new products and services, including those with GPS, our RapidTrac and eBodyGuard products provide an operator with visible and live proof of events as they happen. This means realtime images can be streamed to control centres monitoring field workforces, vehicles and goods-in-transit.”
He adds: “BetaTrac’s high-tech platforms have undergone successful field trials over the past seven months and have already received accolades from the local guarding industry, so much so that two of these pilot trials have recently become commercial contracts.”
BetaTrac was established in 2002 to develop and market a geo-visual/audio, realtime, telematics security system for the protection of field-workers in high-risk environments. This led to other product applications within the fields of transportation (both goods and people), security and guarding.
In 2004, Coach USA, a company operating the world’s largest bus fleet of some 20 000 units, selected BetaTrac’s safety/security platform, namely BetaTrac Pro, a GPS and voice platform. This commercial success was followed by BetaTrac winning two confidential European government tenders for VIP protection.
Further developments over the past three years resulted in two products, namely RapidTrac, utilising an in-vehicle visual monitoring system and eBodyGuard, a composite vest with GPS and surveillance camera, worn by field personnel, in particular security guards. The products, with a full white-paper reporting facility, double as a management tool for the administrators.
Says Lawrence, “BetaTrac’s eBodyGuard was designed as the safety shield for the security guard. The product’s prime focus is the safety of the guard himself, so that he can execute his duties in total confidence. The vest is a part of his uniform apparel and not an object that has to be carried manually and this enhances efficiencies of the guard’s duties.
