The employee carries a reader which is activated at each checkpoint. The checkpoints can consist of Station Tags. During the patrol the reader stores the serial number of the checkpoint with the date and the time. Once completed, the information is downloaded from the reader into a computer where the checkpoints serial number will have an assigned location ( i.e. Main Gate, Backside Gate etc.)
The reader can also be programmed to ignore duplicate checkpoint activations that occur sequentially or with in a certain time period. Computer software used to compile the data from the reader can print out reports that pinpoint the missed checkpoints or patrols. Then the administrator doesn’t have to review all the data collected.
