What is Security Guard Tracking?
Knowing the precise location of your guards can mean the difference between a quick response to an incident and a delayed one. The old way of tracking a guard’s location just won’t cut it anymore.
Tracking technology has improved exponentially in the last decade and has made it possible for security teams to always know a guard’s location in real-time. This reduces dispatcher headaches and ensures safety is on its way in case of an emergency. Security guard tracking is best used to help monitor guards during normal front-line activities or emergencies, and helps security managers gain full visibility of each tour – when it is in progress, when it is complete, and if any checkpoints have been missed.
Security companies benefit in using updated tracking technology by:
Monitoring security guard movements in real-time
Controlling and dispatching guards from a command center
Providing tracking flexibility with GPS, NFC tags, or barcodes

Security guard tracking is one of many features that make up guard management software. With this feature, security managers can ensure guards are accountable for their activities and are ready for dispatching if an incident occurs.

Define Tour Areas to Prevent Guard Wandering
Imagine tracing an invisible boundary that outlines areas where guards should be in. With Trackforce Valiant’s Geofencing feature, defining tour areas is no longer a thing of the future.

- Oversee guards’ safety and link location to their assigned post
- Received automatic alerts whenever a guard enters or leaves a pre-defined area
Oversee a Guard’s Location Directly on a Map
With remote guards manning multiple sites every day, having a supervisor present at each location can quickly raise costs. The Trackforce Valiant security tracker allows supervisors to locate and monitor your guards from wherever a web browser can be accessed.
- Oversee multiple locations and sites, a guard’s availability, and proximity to an incident
- View if guards exited a predefined area
