Conversely, GuardTrax can also alert supervisors if a guard travels into or beyond specifically designed invisible geographic boundaries or â€œgeo-fenceâ€. These geo-fence capabilities are created by GPS latitude, longitude, and radius parameters which can be remotely set over the air (OTA). So if a guard leaves his post, the supervisor will be notified immediately.
â€œThe security industry has been waiting for years for a system like GuardTrax that enables management to monitor the exact location and movement of each guard in real-time from any Internet enabled location to respond quickly and appropriately,â€ explains David Leis, Chief Marketing Officer at NovaTracker.
â€œEnsuring the personal safety and security of each guard, while monitoring performance, is now as simple as using a web browser, clicking on a location and watching the movement of each guard avatar. We believe it will help firms scale back management supervision costs, mitigate theft liability, and lower insurance costs.â€
According to Brian Dooley, a well-known security consultant and guest lecturer at John Jay College who has tested the GuardTrax system, â€œAccountability has always been paramount and GuardTrax is taking it to the next level. With the top-of-the-line technology NovaTracker is putting forth with the GuardTrax system, you will know where security forces are at any given time and youâ€™ll have peace of mind.â€
Weighing only six ounces and measuring approximately 2â€x 6â€, the GuardTrax unit is barely larger than the average cell phone and can easily fit into a shirt or pant pocket. Rugged design and a weather-resistant case make for a highly-functional and durable device.
