TopGuard Patrol and Patrol Plus Information

The new generation of guard tour reporting software for GCS Data Acquisition Units.

TopGuard Patrol - flexible and user-friendly.  The TopGuard Patrol software makes it easy to set up tours, download and evaluated collected data and prepare reports, which may be saved and/or e-mailed in HTML or PDF format.  It is also a communication utility for all GCS data acquisition units.  It uses an MS Access database and the most modern programming tools, making it powerful yet easy to use.  TopGuard Patrol features fully user-editable text fields that allow the software to be customized to accommodate any data collection application, including maintenance, service, cleaning, attendance and asset tracking.  TopGuard Patrol can be quickly configured to display in a variety of languages, including
English and Spanish.

TopGuard Patrol - for basic reporting needs. TopGuard Patrol is included in the ProxiPen system kit and has one comprehensive evaluation report.  Up to 1,750 data media (RFID tags or optical bar codes) can be programmed as incidents, personnel or control points in up to 16 programmable tours.


TopGuard Patrol PLUS - For more complex reporting requirements.  TopGuard Patrol PLUS is an innovative upgrade to our well-proven and widely-used WinArgus software, but includes additional features, such s the ability to create maps of tours using imported JPG or BMP graphic images.  It includes 8 different report formats, and allows up to 7,500 data media (magnetic data strips, RFID tags, or optical bar codes) to be programmed as incidents, personnel, breaks or control points in up to 250 programmed tours.  TopGuard Patrol PLUS comes and requires a copy protection plug (dongle) in order to operate.

Password Protection.  Each time TopGuard Patrol is started, the password is requested.  You may log in as the administrator or a user, as required.  This prevents unauthorized access to master files and configuration of data acquisition units.  The downloaded data is also protected b a CRC checksum to prevent manipulation.

Programming and Downloading. Tours are easily defined by manually entering or downloading control points from a data acquisition unit into a control point “pool.“
Collected data is evaluated immediately after downloading it to the computer, and within seconds you can view the report on the screen.  GCS magnetic data strips, RFID tags and bar codes can be used as control points for predefined incidents or personnel identification  Reports may be printed, saved to a file or sent by e-mail in native TopGuard Patrol format, saved as an HTML file for viewing in a web browser, or saved as an Adobe Acrobat PDF file.
