This app is designed specifically to read Sentinel smartcards for Network Rail’s Sentinel system. ONLY Sentinel smartcards can be read this way – not old NCCA-Sentinel cards.

The 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.

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 Sentinel database. It can also work offline by accessing a cache of any cards checked when online. So without mobile internet access, cached information can still be accessed and all checks will be stored and uploaded to the database when access becomes available for 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 a menu of options will be displayed based on access rights of the cardholder.
5. Follow the on screen options.

Customer Reviews

Remove this from the App Store!

As far as useless updates go, this tops them all.
Well done for spoiling a perfectly good app.
Can't give zero stars, so begrudgingly here's one. Not impressed.

Less than useless

Less than useless if u r needing to swipe in when working in the middle of nowhere
Could do with a mileage input option


Went to swipe in my team trackside, no location for that. It's far to limited, it's going to waste hours just doing this. It's going to be such a waste of man hours. And what do the unions say about tracking of our hours on site like this?
