Accutech Security Introduces a Tag Test Station Compatible with All Current Systems.
The Tag Test Station from Accutech Security gives current and future users the ability to see the remaining battery life and warranty date and on any of their RFID-enabled tags. This increased protection and ease of use feature can be added to any Cuddles infant protection, Kidz or ResidentGuard wander management system at an affordable price point and does not require additional installation. The Tag Test Station also allows users to see the tag program number, battery percentage and has a field for tag notes. With the addition of the Tag Testing Station, Accutech’s product line continues to provide secure environments at a lower total cost of ownership with a wide range of features offering options to match any need and budget.
The Tag Test Station is a small receptacle that is wall-mountable or can sit on a desk. It connects to any PC or laptop computer using a USB cable. For facilities with a software enhanced system, the Tag Test Station will integrate directly with version 7.0 of the enterprise software solution (free to existing users). This integration provides additional features including automatic initiation of the admission or discharge process when a tag is placed on the unit.
Accutech’s unique tags can be turned off when not in use - saving battery life. A simple LED light assures your staff that the tag is on; And the tags simply last longer than competing systems. With the Tag Test Station, facilities experience an added layer of tag management and confidence knowing that tags are charged and functional.

Last week in Cape Town, South Africa, the Magistrate's Court handed down an indictment for an infant abduction that took place in the Groote Schuur Hospital in 1997. The woman who is charged with kidnapping the two day old infant after convincing the young mother to take a nap while she watched her newborn daughter. The indictment states that she "entered the maternity ward of Groote Schuur Hospital, where Celeste Nurse was convalescing after the birth of her daughter. She befriended her and convinced her to hand her daughter to her so that she could sleep." Eighteen years later, the crime was solved when a younger daughter of the couple who experienced this tragedy entered the same high school as the abducted girl. Their striking resemblance led to truth of their origin.
Infant abduction from hospitals and birthing centers is a rare but serious threat. A report in the United States by the Federal Bureau of Investigation found that 68.1% of infant abductions occur in hospital, whether in the nursery or the mother’s room. This tragic story from South Africa points to the importance of infant protection systems in maternity wards to keep them safe and secure. There are many reasons why hospitals and birthing centers choose to install or upgrade their security systems using Accutech RFID-enabled products: lower total cost of ownership, advanced features, lower rate of false alarms, full compliance, and the most comprehensive customer support program in the industry. In addition to easy integration with existing systems, Accutech and our network of local dealers are committed to making sure that your staff receives the necessary training and support to ensure that there are no weak links in your infant protection system.
An RFID-enabled infant protection system like Cuddles from Accutech has different hardware components that combine to create an alert when an infant wearing a bracelet enters into a protected area or beyond an unauthorized exit. Our unique soft bracelet has an RFID tag attached to it. The tag transmits a signal at a specific radio frequency that can be identified by a controller (receiver) placed near a point of egress. If an alarm is tripped, alerts can be sounded at the point of egress as well as communicated through existing pagers, two-way radios and centralized command panels. Accutech can help to ensure that your staff spends more time caring for patients and less time managing systems.
Accutech Security is Releasing a Free Upgrade to Their Software Solution Across All Platforms Featuring Significant Improvements to the Graphic User Interface and Simplified Reporting.
Accutech Security announces the release of version 7.0 of its enterprise software solution free to existing users. This update introduces intuitive enhancements to the Graphic User Interface (GUI), consolidation and simplification of reporting features and a change to SQL as the underlying database framework. Facilities protected by software-enhanced Cuddles Infant Protection, Kidz Pediatric Elopement and ResidentGuard Wander Management systems will benefit from these intuitive improvements to functionality and reporting at no additional cost.
Version 7.0 is built on an SQL framework, rather than Access, making it an IT friendly platform and allowing for the development of additional features. One of these features is the visible tag assignment window giving users an easy-to-use interface to activate and assign and transfer multiple tags at once. In addition, it is now possible to attach a picture to a tag within the system. With the free upgrade to version 7.0, tag administration tasks can now be done from any computer on the network. In previous versions, these tasks required physical access to the host machine.
A redesign of the GUI makes version 7.0 an intuitive and user-friendly front end to the industry’s most reliable and cost-efficient advanced electronic monitoring systems. Consolidation of reporting functions mean simpler, easy-to-understand information about the system and any alarm events.
