Tracertrak Check-in Configuration Guide
Check-ins are a confirmation from a person that they are OK and operating without issue. The absence of a check-in indicates the potential that a person is NOT OK and further investigation is required to ensure the safety of the person in question.
Tracertrak supports three different types of check-in configuration:
- Fixed Check-ins
Regulated, mandatory check-ins suited when control is more important than flexibility.
- Flexible Check-ins
User controlled check-ins which provide flexibility and reduces management dependency.
- All Broadcast Check-ins
Activity based check-ins which provide flexibility and early warning alarms of potential issues
A detailed comparison of the three different check-in types is available in the Check-in Comparison page.
Check-ins are associated with the Missed Check-in Alarm which determines how many missed check-ins need to occur to trigger the missed check-in alarm and who to notify in the event of a missed check-in alarm being triggered.
How best to use Check-ins
The premise behind check-ins is if the person is operating without issue, they will check-in at the expected intervals. However, if the person encounters an issue, such as becoming injured or losing communications, they will not check-in and the absence of the check-in within the expected interval of time will register a missed check-in with Tracertrak. Tracertrak will then raise a missed check-in alarm according to the configuration of that alarm.
Tracertrak has been designed to detect when someone hasn't checked-in and raise the alarm so the exception can be investigated.
