Intelligent step to reducing crime
July 2018, Asset Management, EAS, RFID, Security Services & Risk Management, Products

Crime continues to be one of the country’s biggest concerns and statistics released in the latter part of 2017 show that a record-high of 20 680 armed robberies were recorded for the 2016/2017 period, equating to 57 attacks a day.

However, a group of innovative thinkers have developed a smart solution to help retailers safeguard their high-value goods against armed robbery. The Intelligent Safe incorporates the latest security technology and is fully engineered to offer an all-round solution that’s both protective and reactive.

The Intelligent Safe is used in the day-to-day retail environment as the primary dispensing system for high value stock. Only authorised personnel can access the safety compartments through the touchscreen display using a PIN code and biometric authentication, and the intelligent system records when cases were opened, for how long and by whom.

The store owner has live back-end access to the computer controller via a secure web portal on the Internet and can monitor sales activity and all data logs, change security settings and instantly remove users or manually activate alarms.

Another smart feature of the Intelligent Safe is its RFID (radio frequency identification) stock management system option. It monitors stock movement in and out and also allows real-time stock counts from anywhere on the planet via the Internet at the press of a button.

One of the Intelligent Safe’s standout features is that it comprises multiple electronically controlled and monitored safety compartments with adjustable time delay locks, which dramatically stalls any robbery attempt. Storing stock in separate compartments reduces the retailers’ risk and exposure to potential losses.

In overnight lock-down mode, it automatically activates a cloak of multiple built-in protective sensors, including human presence radar detection, door sensors, internal vibration sensor and an HD camera which records a sequence of HD images of any perpetrator approaching the safe.

Should any one of these sensors detect a breach of the safe’s security envelope, the computer controller immediately activates a sequence of defensive measures, which include email and phone alerts sent to any designated security or user/owner phone numbers, internal siren activation, activation of a pepper-spray deterrent or optional blinding smoke screen, as well as activation of the store premises alarm.

The company’s managing director David Park-Ross says criminals are becoming increasingly more sophisticated in their methods. “So we designed the Intelligent Safe to outsmart them at every turn.

“We realise how much pressure rising crime rates are putting on local retailers, particularly those who trade in high-value goods, for whom a robbery could mean a devastating financial blow. We believe the Intelligent Safe is going to help business owners sleep better at night and make robbers’ job much, much harder,” adds Intelligent Safe Technologies co-founder, Giancarlo Bruno.

In addition, the company’s insurers are so confident of the Intelligent Safe product to the effect that they offer a bespoke Intelligent Insurance Package underwritten by Lloyd’s of London to any retailer with an Intelligent Safe installed, which affords a massive savings of typically 40% to 60% over other mainstream insurance packages currently available on the SA market.

In the preceding eight months, the company has sold 22 units which have been installed across South Africa. “At the end of the day, we want to make the country a better place to live in and do business without the continuous fear of violent crime. We encourage all South Africans to join us in the fight against crime,” concludes Park-Ross.
