This week is the Security
& Policing tradeshow
, UK’s only event for police, law enforcement, and
security professionals. From March 11-13 2014, ENAiKOON will be exhibiting with
Toughshield, a rugged mobile
computing device provider. Together, we will be showcasing the benefits of
telematics and NFC technology for police officers and security professionals.
The combined solution using their robust mobile phones, our tracking devices,
and our mobile apps will aid in improving mobile workforce management,
operational efficiency, and employee security.
The ENAiKOON NFC
tracking solution for guard tour monitoring
is a system that uses NFC tags,
NFC-capable smartphones, and the inViu NFC-tracker app. A security guard going
on patrol would use their smartphone to scan NFC tags mounted along their tour.
The NFC tag data along with the user ID and scanned time gets transmitted to
the inViu servers where management can remotely view the patrol details from
any browser. Keeping an accurate audit trail is essential when it comes to
building trust, not only within the organisation but with clients and other
stakeholders, and this solution will allow security companies to maintain a
good reputation while easily managing their guards.
As for police officers, we developed software that helps deploy police
officers based on their GPS location. This technological enhancement allows
them to efficiently manage their regional coverage, shorten their response
times, and increase their safety. In order to better manage a police
department, all the police officers need are GPS devices on their vehicles or,
alternatively, smartphones with the inViu routes app
Another great use of NFC and mobile phones would be in the evidence room.
ENAiKOON has a partnership with Security
, a patented NFC evidence bag. By identifying each piece of evidence
with an NFC Security Bag, police officers are able to quickly scan the tags
with their NFC-capable mobile phones to access tamper-proof data and track
their chain of custody. Less time in the office means more time out on the
streets! In addition, the use of smartphones is further benefited out in the
field for taking pictures of witnesses, suspects, victims, and crime scenes
with GPS coordinates and timestamps for easy management of evidence images.
For all solutions mentioned, using reliable mobile phones with the right
features is extremely important as the stakes are high for these professions.
Most modern smartphones have NFC capability, though this alone is not
sufficient enough for those who work under harsh conditions. Security guards
and police officers require durable devices that can withstand emergency
situations, and Toughshield’s R500+ is the perfect device.
Not only does it have an IP67 rating, but it resists water, dust, and other
microparticles. Try dropping it 1.2 metres onto concrete – it won’t break the
