More than 15 years of experience and customer feedback has given life to the OnGuard Connect communication terminal. It can easily be attached to the inside of a container door and acts as both the heart and mind of your new security solution. The terminal interprets all the signals from the sensors and feeds you reports and alerts via Xepto's cloud solution to the operations portal – and directly to the security center.
Coverage and capacity are critical factors for a self-reliant system. Consequentially, the technology in our terminal has been significantly upgraded, with dual antenna solutions that communicate via NB-IoT/LTE-M and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). As an extra security measure, there is also an internal antenna in the terminal which enables OnGuard Connect to prioritize the antenna providing the best coverage at any given time. If someone sabotages the external antenna, the internal antenna will provide data quickly and reliably if the door is opened.
You can easily connect several units and swap or replace them when there is a need for service. But the solution is designed to last for long periods without the need for maintenance: Extremely power-efficient components and faster communication require significantly less power than the solutions of previous generations. The batteries last several years without charging, and they can be charged independently by using a desktop charger or swapping with fully charged replacement battery packs. Or by connecting the devices to a solar panel, you can extend their lifespan almost indefinitely.
OnGuard is very easy to install, and no special tools are required for the assembly.
The head unit Xepto Connect is mounted on the door together with a magnetic sensor in the door frame. The antenna is mounted on the outside of the door leaf where you also mount the solar panel.
Xepto gives all customers access to a web‑based user portal. The administration interface has all the functions required to supervise the container fleet:
- Add or remove containers at a location
- Add or remove users associated with the containers
- Users are verified with BankID on their smartphones before gaining access to activating and deactivating alarms
Through the OnGuard app, users can remotely control the alarms in the containers, event without mobile coverage. Users can only access the containers associated with them through the user portal. Users can activate alarms via the web portal, but must use the app and be present at the location to deactivate any alarms.
One thing is securing valuable goods, another factor is personnel security. To differentiate, you will specify a unique silent alarm code in the app, for these types of threats. This enables users to notify the security company with a silent alarm if they are exposed to an assault.
Xepto has an agreement on alarm reception with Avarn and Stanley.
