An early notification means preventing being caught off-guard
We all know by this time the most depressing and “in-your-face” news headlines of constant crime (from petty theft to violent crimes). I think most of our South-African citizens are becoming fed-up with negative news and seeing statistics of crimes in South-Africa. But have you ever thought about how to prepare yourself and be notified early enough to prevent being caught off-guard?
Well. Roboguard outdoor beams are (in my personal opinion) the most superior outdoor beam system available on the South-African market. Designed and developed in SA, Roboguard are one of the most effective early warning systems available.
My personal testimonial: I have been using Roboguard for about 3-years and can rest assured that I will be notified when someone tries to enter my property. To be honest, I rely more on my Roboguard outdoor beams, than what I do on my CCTV cameras (but to be honest – pair both systems and you will have a proper solution to monitor exactly where and what is going on). The batteries in these units (yes, they are wireless) are rated to last 3-years, but can testify with other installations, it exceeds that lifespan. It is the best investment I have ever made as a security measure and deterrent for my property.
So, what does Roboguards have to do with IT-related stuff at TechStudio you may ask? Well, as mentioned in my testimonial above, paired with Vivotek IP HD CCTV Cameras, and you have one solution which will give you enough time to take action, and will most likely deter criminals from entering your property. When connect to your armed response’s alarm system, the timeframe criminals have to break into your property and trying to force open doors and other security measures are drastically reduced, so their chances of a “successful” break-in (or whatever other crime) are extremely reduced.
The other features of Roboguard is that you have a portable unit (which they call the HQ) which you can carry with you should you have friends over for a braai in your backyard where you don’t always have an eye on what is going on in other areas of your property. There are a lot of use-cases where the mobile HQ can alert you when you are in areas of your property where criminals can catch you off-guard.
The sad and unfortunate reality is that crime in our country is bad. Very bad. I am not going to delve into gory stories, as this isn’t a news website or blog. Think about what is best for your family. You want to protect them at all costs. If you invest in the proper security solutions (like Roboguard) and have a plan-of-action in case SHTF, you will not regret it that you were able to protect your family and property. Unfortunately (and I being one of them) most people consider installing security measures (or increase security measures), after they experienced the true effect of a crime.
Is Roboguard a sure thing to totally prevent criminals from entering your property (or for that matter any other security measures)? Like any other security measure (even proven security gates, re-enforced doors, etc.), unfortunately, not. BUT it is a deterrent, early warning system as well another obstacle for a criminal to perform their deeds, with the upside of you being notified early enough to prevent being caught off-guard. Criminals tend to think twice before breaking into a property with visible security measures like CCTV cameras (and have proper ones like the Vivotek range installed), outdoor beams (like Roboguards) and so forth.
Roboguard are not just another gimmick or another cheap system that only does halve of a job.
