ENAiKOON NFC Tracking System

German telematics company, ENAiKOON, has launched the inViu NFC-tracker, a new Android app used for the complete ENAiKOON NFC tracking system for security companies that tracks and manages tasks, patrol routes, and guard activity using Near Field Communication (NFC) technology. This Android NFC app developed by ENAiKOON is the first of its kind that connects to a backend web portal server.

The inViu NFC-tracker optimises guard tours with remote task management and real-time tracking of guard activity. Guards are equipped with NFC-enabled smartphones while NFC tags are mounted onto every patrol check point. These guards would then scan the NFC tags with their phones throughout their tour, which collects the check-in times at each check point. The phone then stores the information and sends it to the ENAiKOON servers for further analysis through the online web portal, inViu pro.

These NFC tags can store data, such as patrol requests and specific tasks for the guards, which makes task delegation and training easier for the managers. When combined with the tour-tracker plugin, the system can monitor guard activity and detect delays in scheduled guard tour patrols, allowing management to give real-time feedback to guards and react promptly to unforeseen security issues.
