Please note: ONLY new Sentinel smartcards can be read in this way – not NCCA-Sentinel cards.
The new Sentinel app allows anyone to check their own smartcard and also allows authorised card checkers to authenticate their team as well as undertake spot checks and check TVPs (Track Visitor Permits).
This app can be used with any Android smartphone or tablet (Android 4 and above) with a rear-facing autofocus camera. Smartcards can be checked by scanning the QR code on the front of the card or TVP.
This app works online, accessing the most up to date information for each cardholder by scanning the card’s QR code and validating this in real-time with the new Sentinel database. It can also work offline by accessing a cache of any cards checked whilst online. So without internet connectivity, cached information can still be accessed.
All card checking activities are uploaded to the database when an internet connection is present or can be uploaded later when connectivity is restored by re-launching the app.
It is easy to use:
1. Open app.
2. Click the QR code button and focus the camera on the card’s QR code.
3. Confirm the sponsor for today.
4. Depending on the card presented, either the card itself will be shown or a menu of options will be displayed for authorised card checkers.
5. Follow the on screen options.
Note: If you have a smartphone with NFC capability, you can make full use of the smartcard synchronisation features by downloading the NFC enabled version of this app at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=rpl.networkrail.nfcclient
✓ Choose from over 18,000 approved access points

One of our simplest and yet most powerful apps to date. ‘Around me’ Access points allows you to search from over 18000 Network Rail approved access points on your mobile phone (on or off-line) by entering your location or simply selecting ‘find near me’. Your nearest access points are presented in list order (nearest first) by type i.e Pedestrian, Vehicle and RRV along with the ELR, mileage, local name, nearest line and distance from your location. You can also view your access points using our built-in satellite imagery and find local information including red zone prohibitions, authorised walking routes etc. The app is available through our own apple app store or for Android users via our website.
HOW IT WORKS
The app uses your phones built in GPS to find your location and then searches for the nearest access points by ELR, mileage, type and local name. Once you have chosen an access point, the app will automatically pick up local information including authorised walking routes, local red zones and so on. You can view your access points in list form, on a street map, overlaid on a satellite image or a hybrid of both. It also works in off-line mode and if any of the core information changes, the app will tell you that there is an update available to download. It’s as simple as that!
PLEASE NOTE: To use the app you will need to register an account with On-trac. Simply install the application and click register, we will get back to you as soon as possible. We are unable to grant access to all applicants due to the app containing safety critical information.
