Security guard and plant protection

The UK’s market leading guard tour system which records the presence and location of security, cleaning and maintenance personnel at given locations and times.  For over 40 years deister has been providing robust and reliable systems, which meet the requirements of both commercial and industrial applications.

Our system allows better use of staff, improves efficiency, and provides accurate and fast audit information on work carried out. Most importantly they highlight any checks that were missed, so that appropriate action can be taken.

Checkpoints are fixed to locations to be visited, and the worker carries a robust handheld data collector which they use to read the checkpoint when it is visited. The checkpoints identification number and time of the visit is recorded by the data collector.

A guard tour system is ideal to determine the location of security guards and other workers where security, safety, servicing or cleaning checks need to be done. deister guard tour systems are used globally for manned guarding operations and many other applications where a mobile worker’s attendance at a given location needs to be verified.

 

Why deister guard tour

Maintenance free

deister checkpoints use RFID technology and do not contain batteries or hard wiring. The checkpoints are also suitable for use internally or externally in all weather conditions.

Easy to use

Simply hold the data collector close to the checkpoint, that’s it. No buttons to press or apps to open.

Long battery life

Best in class operational time with the guardiX II being able to read up to 500,000 checkpoints from a pair of AA batteries. With no recharging necessary the collector is always ready to use.

Connected systems

Connect with other deister systems to allow events to be combined within common reports across different systems.

Robust & reliable

The guardiX II is IP67 classified and has no buttons, switches or other external moving parts that could be prone to failure.

Backwards compatible

GuardiX II data collectors are backwards compatible with all deister RFID checkpoints which have been in the field for many years.

Maintenance free with reliable data collection

deister’s guard tour systems use RFID technology for both checkpoints and data collectors. Checkpoints can  be installed in the harshest of environments without the need for any maintenance or power supply.  This technology is perfectly suited for use in outdoor areas which need to be checked regularly.

Our guard tour products are contactless and the checkpoint is read simply by holding the data collector in front of the checkpoint.  Since the checkpoints require no physical contact they can be painted over or installed in walls, woodwork or masonry.


Quick reporting of additional information

Event cards allow you to report on additional events which may be required during a patrol for example; window open, toilet leaking, maintenance required.  The event cards can be carried with the data collector and when an event needs to be recorded simply hold the corresponding card in front of the data collector, the time and event will be logged.

You can choose the events you would like to report on depending on the environment or to address health and safety requirements.


Intrinsically safe for potentially explosive environments

Designed for use in potentially hazardous environments, the guardiX II EX is the ideal solution for chemical and petrochemical applications.  With no buttons or moving parts our intrinsically safe guardiX II EX meets the requirements of the EU ATEX directive and is water resistant.


guardiX II data collector

The deister guardiX II data collector has no buttons, switches or other external moving parts that could be prone to failure.  Its clever design also means that there is no need for a hole for a sounder, instead the data collector vibrates when a checkpoint is read making it near silent in operation.  An LED and vibration provide haptic feedback making it ideal for patrols or checks that need to be carried out in places such as in hospitals, prisons and hotels or in a noisy manufacturing environment where a sounder would not be heard by the user.

When a checkpoint is read its identification number along with the time and date are stored in the data collector for transmission and processing.  The guardiX II does not require charging and is able to read up to 500,000 checkpoints from a pair of AA batteries, enabling 24/7 availability thereby minimising downtime.

The guardiX II collector has environmental protection of IP67 and has a wide operational temperature range.  It is also available as a special ATEX version for hazardous environments.

 


Checkpoints

Deister’s RFID checkpoints are maintenance free and do not require any power.  The small, inconspicuous checkpoints can either be glued or securely mounted using a special security screw.

The RFID technology ensures the checkpoints are resistant to temperature, weather and other environmental factors.


Data transfer unit

The data transfer unit for the guardiX II USB collectors is connected to a PC or laptop via the USB port and transfers the data when the collector is inserted.  To guarantee maximum accuracy, the real-time clock in the guardiX II data collector is synchronized during the download operation.

LED and vibration provide haptic feedback when the data has been correctly downloaded.


guardiX Connect

guardiX Connect allows data transmission immediately after completing each tour without the need for a data transfer unit. Data is transmitted via the GSM network and securely encrypted via the deister Cloud.

This allows independence of any local infrastructure. The data remains securely encrypted at all times and is only decoded by your system
