Due to the crime rate in S.A. people are building higher walls around their property & trying to upgrade their security all the time.
This is also making them bigger target because the criminals think that the items in their houses must be very valuable.
If they can’t find a way to break into their property, they hi-jack an occupant before he enters the property.
The first thing they do is force them to switch the alarm off then they want to know where the CCTV system is kept & where the safe if.
The other area of concern we have is farm attacks. Farm attacks have become so common these days you don’t even see it in the news anymore.
Below is just one of the incidents.
In 99% of these incidents where the criminal has been successful, the criminal has had the element of surprise.
One of the things I have been thinking of to combat these crimes is to get an alarm system & a CCTV system that are compatible & can work on a computer.
The reason why I want the CCTV system & the alarm system to work off a computer is because a computer is more flexible & you will be able to program it to do what you want it to do.
In the event of an alarm activation in a designated zone the camera in that area will record the footage on the hard drive as well as connect to either the internet & save the footage in a cloud or connect to an intranet connection & save the footage on a third party premises.
In the event of a silent panic being activated all the cameras will record their footage off site.
I was thinking of CCTV & alarm system that are both wireless. You could have a camera that is long range & wide angle & a few alarm devices within the area it is covering. The main function would be to give the farmer an early warning of an intruder on his property. The camera will be able to confirm that it is a person & not an animal that has activated the device. Closer to the property he could have alarm devices that transmit the footage to a third party premises who could also get a reaction unit assist the farmer in the event of an attack. We need the cameras & alarm devices to be as mobile as possible so that the farmer can change the location to prevent anyone who is doing reconnaissance before a planned attack from detecting the devices.
I have spoken to a few security manufacturers in South Africa & none of them have been able to offer me a system that can do this yet.
