MiRO provides end-to-end security solutions

Issue 7 2022 Residential Estate (Industry)

South Africa has seen a massive increase in crime over the past few years. Crime statistics released by Stats SA estimate that up to 1,4 million housebreaking cases occurred in 2021/22. Residential estates should offer you peace of mind, comfort, communal facilities and, most importantly, security. We have long worked with our security vendors to supply a stack of best-of-breed residential estate security solutions for the burgeoning private complex industry.

MiRO provides end-to-end security solutions for enterprises, campuses, resorts, estates and houses of all sizes:

• Uninterrupted 24/7 video surveillance monitoring.

• Complete end-to-end facility access solutions.

• Visitor management systems.

• Smart-home security solutions.

MiRO has introduced some of the most renowned manufacturers of security products to South Africa, including ZKTeco, Hikvision, TimeTec, Uniview, Ring and Aqara.

From ZKTeco and Hikvision, you receive a broad range of facility access products including boom gates, licence plate recognition systems, UHF readers, facial recognition terminals for residential access, and more.

Uniview offers a complete IP surveillance solution with products including dual PTZs, thermal bullets, LPR and dome cameras. Many of Uniview’s products provide features such as Smart Intrusion Prevention (SIP), reducing false alarms and saving you bandwidth while delivering high-quality recordings, remote monitoring and seamless management.

Ring has become the darling of homeowners around the world. The straightforward setup, Wi-Fi management and quality of products have propelled Ring to the forefront of every homeowner’s mind with its video doorbells, floodlight cameras, and a new alarm system that’s proving to be in a class of its own.

Our security solutions wouldn’t be complete without TimeTec: an estate visitor control tool designed to give residents the capacity to send access codes to their visitors while securely storing all visitor data. TimeTec also offers facility management, push notifications and a panic button for all residents. Lastly, Aqara delivers secure home automation solutions encompassing motion sensors, door and window contact sensors, controllers and cameras – all managed remotely from the Aqara app.
