Integrated security with an ROI

Access & Identity Management Handbook 2022 Integrated Solutions

RR Electronic Security Solutions (RRESS) is a South African systems integrator delivering integrated security solutions to various market verticals, including mining, commercial and retail. Hi-Tech Security Solutions spoke to Rivash Raghubir, who heads up the company, to find out more about the company and what it does.

Raghubir says the company started when they identified a gap in the electronic security industry which was full of poorly skilled service providers, providing weak and often badly installed/integrated equipment to the end user.

“RRESS was established in 2003 with the intention to satisfy the needs of clients, by providing custom designed, implemented and turnkey electronic security systems from standalone, through to fully integrated solutions.

“We focus on addressing each clients’ real issues so comprehensively that they are able to focus on their core business and reliably count on us to keep the systems performing at optimum levels, enabling RRESS to grow in line with our clients’ needs.”


When asked why people do business with the company, Raghubir describes the process the company goes through to ensure it delivers as required.

We start with a professional risk survey in order to better understand your risks, which results in ‘The Brief’. This comprehensive scoring model tackles both the known and unknown threats that exist within a company’s daily trading activities and the standard operating procedures (SOPs), namely:

• Protection of movable assets, immovable assets, control of visitors/contractors, staff and even company IP.

• Production: Where is everybody? Who steals time? How often? Who’s involved?

• Profitability: The ability to audit the processes from raw materials through to finished product including cash handling, warehousing, logistics, supply chain management, plus health and safety issues.

Currently the company supplies the following services and products:

• Integrated solutions.

• Access control (design customisation and integrated implementation).

• Axis Communications CCTV/access control/perimeter.

• Hikvision CCTV .

• IDEMIA biometrics.

• ZKTeco access control.

• CathexisVision.

Looking ahead

“RRESS was established with the intention to satisfy the needs of our diverse range of clients, by providing custom designed, implemented and turnkey electronic security systems coupled with the risk to a known loss/fixed budget,” states Raghubir. This allows the client to fully realise the ROI (return on investment) on the system we have commissioned. Our state-of-the-art technological systems have a positive impact on their bottom line.”

Looking ahead at what’s in store for the company, Raghubir adds: “We see ourselves more involved with software development using the latest available platforms in order to offer the end user more cost-effective ways to better mine data within their respective operations, allowing them to make more informed decisions around the electronic security aspect of their business, ultimately saving costs and time from an integrated solution.”
