Hey yous guys!!!

Anybody in here have any good knowledge or familiarity with
a Guard Tour System??

I have a customer that is looking at installing a small system
with only three(3) stations. Would need to be connected to a
computer network for retrieval of data, etc.

Utilize some RFID key-fobs with readers, etc.

Just looking for a Mfg and model.

Anybody have any thoughts or suggestions??

Imagine that!!  A fresh topic for ASA.
WHO will respond first??

Thanks,

Les

for a cut-rate system
you could use a basic alarm panel with radio remotes triggered by  
security "Key"  (medico etc...)
Then pull the panel memory remotely or with a printer..
or
if money is no object,  go with a designed for system..

Hi RTS,

Yes, I had thought of that but, they would like to have
the ability to easily access and generate reports.
That can be challenging with an alarm panel and
the history report has more info than needed.
I know it would be a trade-off of price and doing
it with designed equipment.

So, I assume you personally have not worked with one??

I did the google thing, however having some direct
knowledge would be desired.  Thanks for your input.

At least you are the winner of being the first responder.
Congrats!!

I've heard report of some of the designed system having security issues  
and also programing lock up's..
some systems you've seen..

Back in the days when I ran Guards   We used the old standard "Time  
Clock"  either paper tape or the paper disk..
where a key would be placed at different stops along the route.

Fun times..   LOL

Rocky,

Thanks for the additional input.  Yes, I was looking at the
Guard 1 system as what might work for this application.

The challenge is with this kind of stuff you won't actually know
how and if it is going to work for YOU unless you have it in
house and working with it for a while.  Then and only then
will you know if it is the right system.

The nice part about the Guard 1 system they give you a 30 day
return policy.  Which is nice but then you might have 29 days
of time invested and if you send it back you need to start all
over again.  Needless to say you have to do your homework in
advance.  Which is what I am doing.

Thanks again for the extra input.

Les

I've never installed a guard tour setup, but the customer software for a  
Napco Gemini X255 with access control can generate a lot of reports for  
a user if they want to learn how to use it.

If you are just logging guards, you could put in readers that don't do  
anything except log the card access.  Pretty sure you can name the  
locations in the client software so the reports make sense.

I installed several X255s with access control, and Net-Link modules so  
they could manage their systems across their networks.  I never  
installed one for that type of setup, but the P9600 was also supposed to  
be Net-Link and access capable.  I seem to recall you can pull the  
access log, burglary log, or complete log separately.  Actually at the  
keypad too.  Dang, its only been two years and I've forgotten almost  
everything.  LOL.

Hi Bob,

Yea, I thought of using the on site NX8E Panel and install a few
Readers and do it as you described.

Then I looked at the Guard 1 equipment and that is does specifically
what the customer wants at real good price.  So I suggest to them
today to just buy the equipment and have their IT guy set it up
on their network.  Much easier and no wiring except for a USB cable.

So, how it the little shop on the prairie??  Doing well I hope.

Have a good weekend.

Yeah ??. Well get ready.  

The older you get the shorter that time is going to get.

It's all for the best though. When it reaches the point that you're dribbli
ng and wearing Depends, you don't want to remember past the last bowel move
ment anyway.
