‘GUARD BUDDY PRO’
We at Signal 8 Security Services Malta Ltd. believe that one of the core elements of providing an effective manned security service is the performance monitoring of security personnel. It is also important to create a transparent relationship with customers that facilitate the ability for them to have real time access to information relating to patrol activities on their assignments. The Guard Buddy Pro system has been designed to ensure a quick and effective method of managing the patrol activities of security officers. Backed by the ‘Guard Buddy Pro’ which is only a normal Nokia mobile set (pic. below), our patrolmen will randomly or on a pre-determined route (set out by you), patrol and log in on the strategically placed patrol points throughout the environment being patrolled by the officer. The Patrol points are micro chips and the mobile equipment will certify that the patrol has been carried out, as desired. No wiring is required between patrol points which enable quick and simple installation. Patrol Points are low cost tags and thus encourage volume check points. At your leisure, from anywhere there is an internet connection, you can log on our site and with your password access real time information you may required. You will also have the facility for an electronic print out tailor made to your preference of patrol/visits carried out.
Once the contract is awarded, we at Signal 8 Security Services Malta Ltd are committed to install at our expense the revolutionary technology ‘Guard Buddy Pro’ NFC (Near Field Communications System) to which Signal 8 Security are the sole agents and distributors on these islands.
