Guard Tour Accessory - Checkpoint/Incident/Media Tags

iButton Media Tags

BCS Guard Tour Technology works with Checkpoint/Incident/Guard Media Tags which are available in 3 forms:

  • iButtons
  • RFID tags
  • Barcodes

During the watch patrol, the security guard simply touches or scans the SilverGuard wand to the Checkpoint tag placed at various locations at the site to record the date and time of the guard’s patrol. The security guard may also scan an Incident Tag (contained in the Incident Wallet) to record an Incident (e.g. door open) associated with a Checkpoint, or scan a Guard Tag to identify the name of the guard performing the patrol. You can choose which type of Checkpoint/Incident/Guard Media Tag is best for your operation and budget, depending on the cost and the environment of the site.
