SEPTRE is an effective tool that provides benefits to everyone involved in the field of security. This tamper-proof system confirms that patrols are done as scheduled and is 100% accurate. SEPTRE utilizes BARCODE labels and handheld computers to identify locations quickly, easily and accurately.
It is important to complete an accurate and efficient patrol in order to ensure the area is safe and clear.
The barcode labels used are unusual, in that there are no human readable numbers, which ensures that labels cannot easily be duplicated, and that patrollers must be at the specified locations to read the labels.
For management, the system offers many advantages. Each location to be visited can be identified so that the handheld computer gives instruction to the patroller. Routes can easily be varied, and a patroller can be asked to "do route 66". The system will identify the first check in point, and, once that has been scanned, will then identify the next point. This realistically enables random patrolling.
For the patroller, the route is pre-defined (reducing training requirements). The system can also be used to provide information on the route. As one example, in one industrial setting, a piece of processing machinery was set to self-clean at 03:00 hrs each day. The process involved a lot of heat, some bad smells, and some smoke. A barcode on the equipment enabled a new patroller to access notes confirming that this was normal procedure, and that an alarm call was not required.
The system also enables patrollers to capture useful information. Door on level three left unlocked. Small leak in ladies washroom on level 14.
As convenient, information is transferred from the handheld computer to a central database for reporting or future analysis.
In one case, intrusion was detected, and security personnel were able to confirm that they had in fact checked for security some 15 minutes before the intrusion - confirming that all was locked and secure at that time. The system provides assistance to the patroller, and confirmation that all patrols are completed as scheduled.
