Mobile Screens Security


When implementing Lighthouse, Advent had the following objectives in mind:

  1. Improve security and safety standards by capturing officer movements and raising exceptions for missed patrols
  2. Eliminate inefficient paper processes such as recording tasks, incidents, audits and daily logs
  3. Improve incident and issue response times through real-time recording and notifications
  4. Improve visibility, efficiency, and quality of security services using real-time cloud-based maps and reports

Solution Overview

The solution consisted of three key components:

  1. Bluetooth proximity beacons installed at crucial checkpoints across locations
  2. Asecurity guard mobile app that tracks guard proximity to beacons, records security tasks and reports issues
  3. Cloud management console to view real-time location of guards and access comprehensive reporting

How it works

How Works

The Lighthouse mobile app is carried by security guards and monitors location using GPS, Bluetooth beacons, and QR codes. Location is sent to the cloud in real-time and ensures compliance with security requirements.

The Lighthouse mobile app also allows guards to record tasks, submit issues and send messages. All data collected is translated into powerful reports that help improve the visibility, efficiency, and quality of security services.


Advent Security achieved the following results in the first three months of operation:

Following these results at St Vincent's Hospital, Advent Security are partnering with Lighthouse to deploy the solution more broadly to ensure they continue to deliver upon their promise of "Excellence in Security".

"Lighthouse is setting the standard for mobile and cloud-based guard management software. It helps us provide transparency to our customers, and the reporting helps us improve the efficiency and quality of our guard services."
