Protection from curb to core

Residential Security Handbook 2022: Smart Living Access Control & Identity Management, Integrated Solutions, Residential Estate (Industry)

Protecting our assets and families remains one of our main priorities. Tarryn Fortune, business development manager for Gallagher, discusses how Gallagher’s intelligent access control management, powerful emergency response capabilities, mobile access solutions, integrations into third-party systems, and effective cardholder and credential management, can efficiently and reliably manage all access permissions for home owners, contractors and visitors to estates.

Gallagher designs and develops technology that ensures you are protected from the curb to the core. Gallagher mobile solutions allow you to take your security on the move. “Whether it’s the flexibility to monitor a system from any location, or the convenience of using a smartphone in place of an access or ID card, our range of mobile solutions are designed to deliver user-friendly technology, underpinned by the strongest security,” says Fortune.

In the event of a security emergency, Gallagher’s access control solutions allow you to quickly lock down your site with the push of a button. The Broadcast Notifications feature enables you to update home owners and security personnel about potential hazards or shutdowns via SMS or email, delivering critical information directly to those who need it.


Delivering more than traditional access control, Gallagher provides integrated identity management for home owners, contractors and visitors, providing oversight of cardholder locations at all times.

Gallagher’s Visitor Management provides a targeted user interface for reception staff to manage the arrival and departure of visitors – including updating visitor details, capturing ID photographs, printing visitor labels, assigning escorts and providing visitor access cards, all within the POPI Act requirements. The system provides automated email/SMS communication to notify hosts of a visitor’s arrival or alert staff about a visitor whose time on site has expired.

The guard tour feature allows a number of guard checkpoints to be set up to manage a guard through a site tour route. If a guard arrives outside of the allowed times, an alarm is generated to provide protection for the guard and residents, with a real-time display showing the guard tour progress in the security control room.

Gallagher’s perimeter intrusion detection solution consists of a grid of high-tensile wires and accompanying monitoring hardware that can be constructed inside a new or existing perimeter fence. “Our range of physical applications, with monitored wires and adjustable sensors, means there is no comparison for deterrence, detection and delay at the perimeter,” says Fortune.

With the use of Gallagher Command Centre’s advanced site plans and integrations, Gallagher can provide all your security sub-systems on one user-friendly, interactive and informative platform, offering complete site protection from curb to core.
