The Detex Proxipen is a small handheld proximity device each guard carrys on their tour. Checkpoints – small round buttons are placed in critical areas on the tour. Guards simply touch the Proxipen to each checkpoint when on their tour and they will see a light and hear an audible confirmation of that checkpoint. At the end of the tour, the Proxipen is then taken back to the DTU (data transfer unit) where the information is transferred to the TopGuard Patrol Software. Reports can then be downloaded, printed, and emailed to managers and other personnel.
