Nanyang Technological University of Singapore (NTU) harness security with RFID electronic Guard Patrol Systemadmin
December 2003- In response to the Singapore Government calling of stepping up security measures in Singapore . Nanyang Technological University of Singapore, NTU employed the efficient “Contactless” RFID electronic Guard Patrol System in its entire premises to develop a more stringent security system.
This sophisticated German-designed system enables security officer to receive a daily guard patrol summary. Hence, this system eliminates the cumbersome process of recording data in logbooks thus streamlining its guard patrolling with a cost-effective monitoring network.
This efficient guard patrol system provided and installed by Coselec Pte Ltd, has also benefited other educational institutions such as National University of Singapore (NUS), Singapore Management University (SMU), Republic Polytechnic, ITE Dover, Singapore American School, INSEAD.
Coselec Pte Ltd is a regional distributor, marketing highly specialised security products and systems in the field of security control, facility management, and automatic identification market.
The entire system comprises 150 proximity checkpoints, 60 personal contactless card ID, 20 rugged-designed data collectors, downloading units and a management software application. The checkpoint can either be surface-mounted with tamper proof security screw, or concealed to avoid any vandalism if required.
By presenting a lightweight handheld data collector to the mounted checkpoints, data are gathered seamlessly. This process makes data collection easy, especially if the checkpoints are located in places that are physically difficult to access. A distinctive advantage over conventional bar code, magnetic or touch button system is that it functions consistently in any kind of environment whether hot or humid conditions.
Reports are generated immediately once the security guard finishes his patrolling and placed the data collector into the downloading unit located in the control room. All these are automatically processed by patrol verification management software. The resulting reports are then channeled to the Operations Officer.
Given these comprehensive and differing reports, the supervisor is able to review performance, and detect any deviations and irregularities. This allows security management to act swiftly to prevent losses and damages.
The patrol verification management software, known as “Lite Patrol” has the capability to capture up to 500 location checkpoints, and unlimited number of data collectors. It processes large amounts of data, which can be evaluated within seconds and displayed in five different comprehensive reports. These reports can be chosen based on master data, location, inspection, error and personnel ID reports.
Besides Lite Patrol software, Coselec also offers Easy Patrol and Master Patrol that can process up to 50,000 checkpoints.
The system also has a unique feature that expedites facility management. Recording and reporting events such as vandalism to machinery or property, malfunctioning of equipment, and other disruption through a unique Event Card. This card can be fitted into any security officer’s pocket due to its lightweight and handy outlook.
With a most effective patrol verification software and a data collecting system with unlimited possibilities, NTU has made a wise choice by acquiring a guard patrol and monitoring system that will keep its promises and stand in good stead for many years to come.
Coselec is honored and proud to be the distributor to provide service, expertise and products for NTU.
