Creating Tours and Patrols using the APP

Supervisors can also create routes/tours/rounds from the Awe Responder APP to ensure that rounds are completed within predefined times.

When a  patroller/ responder/ guard comes within a specified distance of the waypoint, the check-in is logged, providing a record of the round/tour completion for the supervisor to review.
