What is a guard tour system?


It was developed for use in security-relevant areas and is used for verification in the security industry. Today, there are complete solutions for planning, monitoring, duty roster management and automating your verification obligations.


With the expression guard patrol system is meant a mobile provided service, which is recorded and read out. Important is documentation of location, time and event. Guard patrol systems are used in guard and security services, object and plant protection, facility management and care services.

A guard patrol system usually consists of the following components: mobile data collectors (like the one you see in the picture on the right), control points, devices for programming and reading the mobile devices and transferring collected data to the computer, and software for managing and documenting the collected data.

Today, there are online guard patrol systems, such as COREDINATE, consisting of smartphones that scan GPS points, NFC tags or Bluetooth beacons. You do not need any additional devices for reading. The data is transmitted in real time to a server and is immediately accessible via computer.

What are the guard patrol systems?

There are various systems, such as wired reporting and patrol systems, time clocks, radio-controlled time clocks, and electronic data collectors. Some of these systems also perform an additional security function: they can emit a personal emergency signal (PNA).


How does an online guard patrol system work?

Via NFC, Bluetooth or GPS signals, the OWKS provides you with digital detection and simultaneously serves as a so-called dead man's alarm. This alarm, which serves as an emergency signal, is eligible for funding by the employers' liability insurance association. Numerous additional modules, such as the duty roster, a key management, a visitor registration, the driver's license control, and many more, complete a digital guard patrol system and make it your all-round helper in the security industry.

The associated portal runs in a cloud and can be accessed from any computer, tablet or cell phone. The data is secure and has high availability.

Tours can be conducted with commercially available smartphones (iPhone and Android) with NFC technology.

COREDINATE, the ingeniously simple online guard control system OWKS®.

The functions of our online guardian control system OWKS® are based on checkpoint scans. With any NFC-enabled smartphone (whether iPhone or Android) and the COREDINATE app, due tasks show up, for example in the form of checklists that your team can simply check off after completion. Checkpoints can thus be used to create entire tours, making it unnecessary to take along a watchbook or folder. In addition to checkpoints, you can also supplement tours with the use of COREDINATE beacons.

While your employees are on inspection rounds, you as the team leader are virtually live, because the progress can be viewed from your PC. Damage to property or similar can be documented immediately with the event recording function. Since data is transferred from the app to the COREDINATE portal in real time, you can quickly intervene or make a decision if necessary. The online guard control system can do a lot more: It supports with time recording, notifications, key management, GPS tracking, the workplace security, etc..
