In contrast with QR code labels, NFC tags, can be added to your account, on your Check Points list, only after having assigned them from your device. Assignment of NFC tags can happen just like the one of QR code labels above. The only difference is that instead of pressing the ‘Scan point tag’ button, you only have to drag the NFC on the back of your device. Note: Make sure that you have enabled the NFC feature on your device.

Once there is a route set up for the specific guard, you will receive a schedule update on your device, at the same time that the route starts. In the example below, the route starts at 17:00, so the guard is going to receive his schedule update at 5 PM exactly.

So, when it is tha appropriate time, on the Patrol Screen, press the ‘Scan QR code’ button and scan your label.

If the light is insufficient, you can press the torch button, on the bottom of your screen, and your flash will turn on when you hit the ‘Scan QR code’ button.

In case you want to scan a NFC, all you have to do is to drag your device above the tag on the main Patrol screen of your mobile app.


By pressing the ‘Incident’ button, a list with all the existing incidents will show up. Select -at least- one of them, press ‘Assign Point’ to assign a QR code to the Incident (or just read an NFC with your device), check the ‘Send the report by email’ box if you want the incident report to be sent to the client to whom the assigned check point belongs and submit the incident tapping the ‘Send Incidents’ button.

In case you want to attach also a MME to your incident, before sending it, click on the MME button. Take a picture, make a recording, enter a text message or add a signature and tap on ‘Send MME’.


On the main patrol screen there is the S.O.S. button. When pressed, an alarm on your web application will be sent and an alert via e-mail will be sent to the admin and the users. The alarm can be disabled by clicking on ‘ACK Alarms’.
