Checkmate is an automated telephone check in system that calls you or sends text messages to you every hour when you are working alone, between 10:00 pm and 06:00 am. 

Once you have registered at a security desk or on the Checkmate website, you will receive you first check in call or text in about 1 hour and ever hour until the selected time of your last safety check.

Receiving the call and checking-in

 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 text, you will receive an automated voice call on your cell phone.  You will be prompted to enter a PIN (1111) to confirm you are ok.  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 last safety check to occur.  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?
