Trac-Tech releases disposable guard monitoring baton

April 2003 Security Services & Risk Management

Trac-Tech has launched South Africa's first disposable guard monitoring baton. According to Jonathan Kahn, managing director of Trac-Tech, the security industry has a serious problem managing the ongoing costs of a guard monitoring solution. Over the last 14 years, since Trac-Tech launched its first guard monitoring baton, the single largest complaint security companies have against the product, are the costs associated with the repair of deliberate and malicious damage.

The latest electronic components and design have allowed Trac-Tech to produce a low cost disposable baton. The MT4 is capable of reading up to 200 000 points before the built in battery pack will expire, this translates to a lifespan exceeding two years for a site which has 10 points and is patrolled every hour, 365 days per year.

The MT4 is constructed from rugged material, weighs under 200 g and can fit in the palm of your hand. Due to the low cost nature of this product, each guard can be permanently issued with their own individual MT4, thereby eliminating the issues of identifying responsibility for loss or damage. Easy access to replacement units ensures that a guard remains monitored at all times.
