How RTLS for Morgue Security Works

how morgue RTLS works

Locate, track, and secure decedent patients in real-time

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 decedent is assigned a tag – 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.
