Hytera Rfid DMR Patrol System – Personnel and Asset Tracking


DMR software applications

The Hytera RFID Patrol System is a simple, user-friendly, cost-efficient solution for the management of security personnel and assets. Utilising RFID tags and the reliable PD415 DMR radio as your reader, you can monitor personnel and assets at all times, increasing safety, security and patrol efficiency. The RFID tags are made up of a patrol identification card (POA72) and a checkpoint (POA71). The checkpoints are installed in the location that needs to be safeguarded, along the intended patrol route.

As the user starts their shift, they register their PD415 with their patrol identification card, logging them on to the patrol system. As the user passes a checkpoint along their patrol route, the radio is held against the checkpoint. This scans the location using the RFID technology. The data acquired is transmitted from the radio to the patrol software where all logs can be subsequently analysed.Speak to a Hytera Partner today to find out how the Hytera Patrol system could improve your security process.


Routes and timetables can be created and adjusted using the Hytera patrol software. This allows for flexible changes to routes, optimising them according to the changing workflow.

Proven DMR Radio Technology and RFID

The radio technology employed for the data transfer to the control centre is based on the open ETSI standard DMR. The data from patrol is collected using passive RFID-capable checkpoints and the Hytera DMR handheld radio PD415.

Flexible Usage

A repeater or mobile radio (MD785/MD785G) can be used as a receiving station. If a repeater is selected, the patrol system can be connected via IP, which allows it to be located at a remote site. In case of the MD785/MD785G, this is accomplished with the standard programming cable.

Reliable Data Transfer

If data cannot be transferred to the call centre due to a lack of DMR radio coverage, the PD415 radio allows you to transfer the data at a later time. As soon as the radio is connected again with the DMR system, the patrol data can be sent again with the push of a button. Alternatively you can transfer the data offline using a data cable.

Comprehensive Administration

The administrator using the patrol software is able to manage all the information collected along the patrol, including the patrol personnel, checkpoints and patrol schedules.

Visualisation Of Patrol Routes

To help manage patrol routes and checkpoint locations, you can import your own site map (graphics file format) into the patrol software. Once imported, you can add special features via the menu, such as several floors of a building, to help track your operations.

Analysing Patrol Data

The patrol software provides a number of options for searching and carrying out statistical analysis of the data received. This information can also be exported to an Excel file or a PDF document for further manipulation or reporting.

Hytera Guard Patrol Case Studies

Choosing a new solution to replace their ageing analogue two-way radio system was not a decision taken lightly by the staff at the college, they needed to ensure they had a reliable voice & data radio solution that could adapt in time while being fully updatable to provide maximum return on their investment. The team choose an RFID Hytera Digital Communications Solution.

Due to the age of the building (Grade I), DCRS utilised their experience in this field to be mindful & respectful of the property with the antenna installation by ensuring that all permissions had been granted.

The hand portable chosen was the Hytera PD415 – a small, robust hand portable which has been developed to specifically work with the Hytera RFID DMR Guard Patrol Solution as the backbone to the solution. With embedded digital technology, the PD4 series produces outstanding voice quality, even in noisy college environments, and at the outer perimeters of radio coverage. Alongside the RFID system, a further request was made by the Magdalene College to activate the emergency button on the hand portable as an added element of protection for the Porters.
