I've never installed a guard tour setup, but the customer software for a
Napco Gemini X255 with access control can generate a lot of reports for
a user if they want to learn how to use it.

If you are just logging guards, you could put in readers that don't do
anything except log the card access.  Pretty sure you can name the
locations in the client software so the reports make sense.

I installed several X255s with access control, and Net-Link modules so
they could manage their systems across their networks.  I never
installed one for that type of setup, but the P9600 was also supposed to
be Net-Link and access capable.  I seem to recall you can pull the
access log, burglary log, or complete log separately.  Actually at the
keypad too.  Dang, its only been two years and I've forgotten almost
everything.  LOL.
