Checkmate is an automated telephone check in system that calls you or sends text messages to you every hour when you are working alone after hours. 

Once you have registered at a security desk or on the Checkmate webpage, you will receive your first check in call or text within 5 minutes of subscribing and every hour until the selected end time. You will receive your last check 15 minutes prior to the time you requested the safety checks to stop.

Responding to check-ins

When receiving the check-in by text message, simply reply to the text with your current location; i.e. EV 1.404

If you receive an automated voice call, simply press 1 to confirm that you are ok and say your current location when prompted by the system. 

The location you provide will be used by security agents to physically check in on you should you miss a check.

If I miss a check-in

If you miss a check-in by text, you will receive an automated voice call on your cell phone. If you miss the voice call check-in, a security agent will be sent to your last recorded location to make sure that you are ok.

If you miss a voice call, checkmate will try again. After 3 unanswered calls, a security agent will be sent to your last recorded location to make sure that you are ok.

To stop the check-in

The check in will automatically stop at the time you entered for the check ins to stop.  If you want to end them earlier;

  • For text message: reply “off” to the most recent check-in text that you received.   
  • For voice calls: call Concordia security to have the check-ins ended.

How do I register?
