The monitoring system can be made accessible to the personnel and authorized users of BJMP for data safety and data back-up any computers. Only registered users are allowed to access the different features and functionalities of the automated monitoring system.
The features of the system will focus on: log-in and log-out services, Visitors Information, Administrator System, database back-up, list of visitors and statistic report.
Thus, this capstone project focused on how to design and develop a computer-based Monitoring System for BJMP to be utilized by the agency in promoting safety, to monitor visitors, and generate reports on users and frequent visitors of the jail premises.
