Quality living meets quality security

Access & Identity Management Handbook 2012 Access Control & Identity Management, Residential Estate (Industry)

Sime Darby residential complex opts for Gallagher security.

Country living, recreational lakes, a tree house, stables, horse trails, a children’s playground, barbeque area and jogging tracks are all key features of a high quality Sime Darby residential complex. But a high quality lifestyle often requires high level, low profile security, and meeting this expectation can be difficult.

However, Sime Darby, Malaysia’s leading multinational conglomerate, has achieved this model with an integrated access and perimeter security solution from Gallagher.

Sime Darby Property (SDP) focuses on property development with interests in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam, China, Australia and the UK. The company has complementary operations in property investment, asset management, hospitality and leisure. SDP was established to enable the consolidated management of all the property related companies held by the Sime Darby Group, guided by the vision to be a leader in building sustainable communities. The company’s properties are extensive and range from low-cost to high-end, landed to high rise and freehold to leasehold units catering to various consumer demands and preferences.

Regardless of the customer needs, Sime Darby places a strong emphasis on quality. As the foundation of its brand values, quality needs to be reflected in its security solution. Among the features enjoyed by residents in a Sime Darby residential complex is the 24-hour security and patrolling service incorporating a Gallagher perimeter security fence and central access management system.

Sime Darby has installed a Gallagher security system which is monitored 24/7 at the command centre located within the guardhouse by on-site security staff. Remote maintenance monitoring is also carried out by PowerFence Malaysia at its purpose built monitoring facility.

The Gallagher platform integrated with the perimeter electric security fence is used to detect and deter would-be intruders with a short, sharp, safe pulse. Despite the level of physical security introduced at the Sime Darby residential compound, the overall aesthetics of the facility have not been compromised.

Gallagher’s exclusive distributor, PowerFence Malaysia, is responsible for installation of the security system at Sime Darby sites and they are now a preferred vendor for the group. MD, Prema Nair says her company is completely aware of Sime Darby’s reputation for quality. “When we install a Gallagher perimeter electric fence we will blend the fence components in with the surrounding environment. We work very closely with the designers to help Sime Darby present a quality image.”

She says the inclusion of a Gallagher high level security system has become a key feature during the Sime Darby sales process. “Sime Darby places a strong emphasis on the benefits of the Gallagher security system. When a new residential complex is launched it will host an open day to educate customers on the security features offered.”

Enhancing the perimeter security system on site is third-party integrator, Nedap. The complex holds a Gallagher-enabled variant of Nedap’s long range automatic vehicle identification (AVI) system. The integration enables driver and vehicle identification and access control to be managed and monitored via the Gallagher Command Centre, the central control server of the access management system. Nedap’s system provides long range vehicle identification from distances up to 10 metres even when a vehicle is travelling at high speed. This solution ensures that a vehicle can never leave, or get access to the secured area unless occupied by an authorised driver.

Prema says integrating third-party products such as Nedap with Gallagher products is another key feature of the complete security solution. “We provide total project management for Sime Darby delivering a high quality secure system and peace of mind for residents.”
