Corsec, Reditron and Heitel - a monitoring solution

April 2006 Surveillance

In a move that will assist commercial, industrial, retail and domestic end-users, as well as providers of security solutions, Corporate Security (Corsec) in conjunction with Reditron has established one of SA's first state-of-the-art, SAIDSA-compliant off-site CCTV monitoring stations.

The facility represents the next evolutionary step in security and safety, says Corsec MD Martin Doyle. It enhances and adds value to existing security arrangements through a range of affordable central monitoring services, covering members of staff as well as company assets.

"The stark reality is that crime has increased in volume, heightened in sophistication and escalated in violence in recent years," Doyle continues. "Corporate Security has consistently risen to the challenge by developing more and more advanced countermeasures, the latest incarnation of which is our off-site CCTV monitoring facility.

"Built to SAIDSA (South African Intruder Detection Services Association) building specifications, which cover aspects such as back-up systems and emergency power to the survivability of the physical structure, the new station is equipped with the very latest equipment and operated by comprehensively trained staff."

Services available through the facility include event monitoring, essential services and systems monitoring, as well as goods in/out monitoring.

Doyle continues: "Very important is the ability to 'watch the watchers' - ie, to monitor the competence and trustworthiness of security personnel, and highlight any incidents of collusion or other potentially threatening acts. This is also now possible via the new station.

"Businesses which operate freezers, plant rooms, boiler rooms and the like can use our facility to monitor these assets for hazards and thereby minimise or even eliminate losses of goods or infrastructure. In addition, through the use of advanced Very Early Smoke Detection (Vesda) sensors, it is possible to anticipate the outbreak of fire well ahead of time, thereby significantly reducing consequent damage to people or plant."
