COGARD guard control system


The COGARD 1000 and  3000+ guard control systems are also available as practical and cost-effective starter sets. Or as “ready to go sets” with a notebook computer and pre-installed software for immediate use!

BENZING COGARD guard control systems offer simple, reliable solutions for the creation of control and activity records. We offer different models depending on the requirements or range of functions:

  • The simple COGARD 800 guard control system for 800 entries. It works on a magnetic basis.
  • The COGARD 1000 guard control system with a maximum storage capacity of 1000 bookings. It works contactless with modern RFID technology.
  • The COGARD 3000 guard control system was withdrawn from the programme on 01/03/2024. Individual COGARD 3000 data readers, as well as control points, e-key fobs, holsters etc. are still available.
  • The COGARD 3000+ guard control system with a storage capacity of up to 30,000 bookings.

The BENZING recording and documentation systems for mobile provided services are also suitable for rough working conditions and at the same time very low-maintenance.

With the help of a data reader, monitoring services and special incidents (also for several customers or objects) are documented and logged. If you want to do without data readers, then choose the modern system BENZING NFC Patrol Control, where you can use your own Android smartphone as a data reader.

BENZING COGARD guard control systems - an overview

BENZING NFC Guard control system - NFC Patrol Control - a modern solution for documenting your obligation to provide proof

The modern BENZING NFC guard control system, the NFC Patrol Control, offers a mobile  online guard system using a NFC-enabled (Android) smartphone. Using the “NFC Patrol Control” mobile app, security staff can read out the individual control points directly and in real-time (so-called REAL-TIME MONITORING).

The data is encrypted and transmitted to our servers without personalisation and is available on your computer at the same time!

The actual evaluation of the data on your computer is done using the CoSOFT evaluation software.


With the NFC guard control system, all NFC-enabled smartphones can be used as data readers.

COSOFT evaluation software

The control data recorded using the BENZING guard control solution can be evaluated and analysed using the CoSOFT evaluation software. Security companies that work for different customers can create customer-specific reports and forward on the activity reports or even print them out if necessary.
