TAKE THE HEAT OFF SECURITY OFFICERS ON PATROL WITH SMARTTASK AND THERMAL IMAGING

SmartTask has become the first patrol monitoring and guard management system to integrate with FLIR® thermal imaging. Taking advantage of the latest developments in smartphone technology, manned and mobile security providers can offer an enhanced service to customers and keep security officers safe against hidden threats and potential risks.

Using a SmartTask-enabled smartphone with thermal imaging, security businesses can improve officer effectiveness by providing added peace of mind in unlit or isolated areas. If they suspect an intrusion has occurred or hear unexpected noises the patrol monitoring tool can now be used to scan for residual heat signatures to help determine if the threat is real and if added assistance is needed.

The security officer can also capture and collate evidence, including images and temperature measurements, when on patrol. As a result, incident notifications can be sent immediately to a central control centre to raise an alarm, while all information is stored in an online portal for future reporting requirements and analysis. It can even be used to assess potential fire risk by identifying equipment or areas that are generating excess heat, so the issue can be reported before it develops into a major problem.

Paul Ridden, Managing Director of Skillweb commented: “Using SmartTask in conjunction with the CAT® S60 rugged smartphone means security businesses of all sizes can now cost efficiently utilise thermal imaging technology as part of a highly effective and robust patrol monitoring and guard management solution. It can help identify risks and capture important operational information to better protect and give added confidence to vulnerable workers that are operating in dark and isolated locations.”

SmartTask is an advanced and simple to use employee scheduling and mobile workforce management solution that enables companies to better plan and manage their staff, so they are at the right place, at the right time. SmartTask combines intelligent rostering, live monitoring and integrated proof of attendance across both static and mobile teams, making it the ideal tool to improve operational control, enhance customer satisfaction, and support duty of care to staff.
