Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) August 05, 2014
D3 Security today announced the introduction of its Android application for mobile incident reporting, guard tour and physical security operations. Compatible with virtually any device running Android version 4.3 or higher, the new app extends the D3 ONE Enterprise Security Platform deep into the field where security officers use its fully integrated Incident Reporting, Guard Tour, Dispatch and Post Orders software to track scheduled and unscheduled activities, document incident scenes and standardize the capture of high quality security data from the field.
The system gives officers an easy-to-use and multi-functional handset that can scan both barcode and RFID checkpoints, including when both are present in a single route. Each checkpoint can be configured to prompt the officer into additional action, such as locking a door or recording the temperature of a cold-storage unit. All key time, location and KPI data is automatically recorded and notification workflows alert stakeholders in the event of inactivity, missed checkpoints or an officer leaving the property.
Upon arrival at an incident scene officers can quickly snap an unlimited number of photos and upload them directly to the incident report. Incident report forms and any narrative sections can be filled out quickly using the Android’s intuitive keyboard or voice-to-text feature. Meanwhile, all GPS and location data—including the ability to drop pins on a Google Map interface—are automatically associated to the report, creating incident heat maps and allowing managers to create guard tour routes and countermeasures based on the exact location, impact and frequency of incidents.
D3 Android includes a comprehensive dispatch module that allows dispatchers or pre-configured standard operating procedures to assign available officers to a security event or incident scene. Surveillance media and information from access control systems can supplement each dispatch, giving officers the ability to see and prepare for the security event to which they are responding. Real-time GPS tracking and geofencing ensure the safety of officers as they respond to dispatches inside and outside any facility—including underground parking garages or multi-storey office towers.
Finally, in support of standardization efforts and to increase situational awareness, a D3 Android user can access a searchable repository full of standard operating procedures, floor plans, emergency contacts, banned persons and anything else the customer deems important. Changes to this digital library can be made in seconds by an administrator; BOLOs or Amber Alerts can be pushed to the guard force when required.
“The release of the D3 Android App is all about giving our customers more of what they’ve come to expect from D3, which is configuration options, flexibility and the choice of platform,” says D3 Security’s President, Gordon Benoit. “D3 customers can configure any incident report form, map out any guard tour route and pass intelligence directly from video management and access control systems to their responding resources. Now with this Android release, customers can channel the power of such an integrated system into the handset and operating system that works best for their security team and device policy—be it iPhone, iPad, or any of the Android smartphones and tablets.”
The D3 Android and D3 Apple iOS Apps are both extensions of the award-winning D3 ONE Enterprise Security Platform designed for maximizing the performance and accountability of a physical security operation. Each app features fully integrated Incident Reporting, Guard Tour, Dispatch and Post Orders software modules. The system’s configurability enables its use by security, safety, hazmat and maintenance resources.
