 Infant Security RTLS - How It Works
 icon

Infant Security

The TotGuard® Infant and Pediatric Security Solution by GuardRFID monitors infant location and can be configured to alarm or lock doors in the event of suspicious activity.

Small, light tags are comfortably worn by infants so the solution software can detect their location at all times and ensure they are returned to the right parents.

Infant location and alarms are displayed on desktop, web browsers and mobile apps, to provide actionable information in real-time.

 Wandering Patients RTLS - How It Works

Wandering Patients Safety

Patients are assigned an active RFID tag to wear—attached via medical wrist bands, a silicon wearable band, a pendant, keychain or lanyard. Push button options are also available to allow patients to call for help. Tagged patients are instantly detected at exit doors, stairwells and elevators, and their presence can be configured to enable alarms and secure doors. The solution uses the GuardRFID suite of infrastructure hardware and AllGuard® enterprise software to identify tags, manage tag rules, activate alarms and control doors. The system can be configured to lock external exits if a patient suffering from Alzheimer’s approaches the exit doorway.

 Staff Duress RTLS

Staff Duress

Staff members are assigned an active RFID tag with call button support . This can be worn in a wristband or attached to a lanyard. The tags communicate with the GuardRFID infrastructure in real-time to facilitate staff location and alerts in the AllGuard® software if the tag call button is pressed. When the alarm is received in real-time, the software can be configured to generate various responses, including sending notifications to authorized personnel (for example, security guards) or triggering an audible alarm to help diffuse the situation.

 Asset Tracking RTLS
 icon

Asset Tracking

The solution uses the GuardRFID® suite of infrastructure hardware and AllGuard® enterprise software to identify tags, manage tag rules, activate alarms and control doors. Each piece of equipment is assigned a tag – its location is seen in real-time, while the software activates alarms when tagged items move from secured areas. By integrating long-range RTLS and close-range portal detection in a single system, the solution provides a unique element of floor discrimination. Support of the IHE PCD standards allows the status of certain assets, such as IV Pumps, to be viewed from the AllGuard Client software.
