Over the years, security has become more and more sophisticated and responsible.
The utilization of CCTV monitoring is becoming the trend in security. CCTV - Closed Circuit Television.
This facility involves the use of video cameras which are linked to sophisticated and state of the art control room. Oracle Protection Services are encouraging entities to utilize the camera facility to monitor their domestics, children or staff via their personal cell phones. This eliminates the crime aspect as the client is fully aware of all activities, whether it is at their homes or their business.

Oracle Protection Services has been successfully protecting and guarding several complexes, many of these are long standing Clients.
We have enjoyed great success rates in preventing break ins, arresting of perpetrators and most importantly, working together with Management companies, portfolio managers, body Corporate, trustees and Home Owners Associations - building relationships and trust.
Oracle Protection Services provide guarding services in many forms and the quotations for services can be mixed to suit the client’s requirements
> On site guarding - day and night shift services
> On site guarding -weekend shifts
> Adhoc guarding - where a client specifically needs the services of a security officer to protect a wall or electric fence for a limited period of time
> Events guarding - these officers are all fire arm trained, registered and have competency certificates.
> Undercover guarding - a specialised service which requires a more highly skilled officer to carry out these duties
All officers are required to have completed their training as required by statutory law and by PSIRA (Private Security Industry Regulatory Authority) and now by the new regulations implemented by SASSETA (South African Security Services Education and Training Authority).
Training is now compulsory at NQF levels (National Qualification).
These are many rules and regulations on a site which is adapted to suit the client and which must be strictly adhered to.
The security officers are well versed in access control, management of domestics / gardeners and the control of contractors and sub-contractors on site. Training is an ongoing requirement of the complex/estate and the rules and regulations of that specific entity.
All movements are recorded by officers in the Occurrence Books and Pocket Books so that the Area Supervisor can access the situation on any site at any given time.
Onsite inspections are carried out on an adhoc basis - no security officer will know when his superior is going to be calling on him.
All officers sign a Confidentiality agreement and a Code of Conduct document in order to protect our clients, their belongings and interests.
The Technical Team is a dedicated team, completely familiar with all aspects of installations, programming and with extensive product knowledge on all system.

Suggestions / Recommendations ML
On appointment, Oracle Protection Services will take the time to discuss the Rules and Regulations of the Complex / Estate with the authorised persons and will endeavour at all times to look after the bests interests of the client in every aspect.
We pride ourselves on not just taking on a Complex / Estate, but going the extra mile at each turn, attempting to provide the client with cost saving ideas, better security for their residents inside the Complex / Estate and to this end, set out here under some suggestions for the client’s consideration.
Personal Security for the Complex and Residents

> Ensure that the electric fences are working and that in need, these be checked and repaired as quickly as possible.
> It is suggested and highly recommended that clients remember “Safety begins at Home”
> Insurance companies are hesitant is paying claims if the correct procedures and precautions have been not been taken.
> Every Resident should ensure that he/she has an alarm system or panic button system (Sherlo Mimic Panel system which is only effective if day and night guards are on duty) connected to the guardhouse if this is in place and their personal alarms linked to an armed response service provider.
Complex / Estate Residents
Oracle Protection Services have several options available for complex and estate residents:
> Linking up to an armed response and monitoring service provider:
> Residents can benefit from the fact that their armed response and monitoring costs can almost be halved
> If residents sign up within a complex, the security measures are stronger as everyone within the complex has an alarm, is linked to a service provider and response time is minimal - Time is Crucial in any incident.
> Prices per resident can be as low as R85.00 (dependant on numbers and signing of a 2 year contract)
> Dedicated Pro-Active Response Services:
> Beneficial to all - as many complexes / estates as possible sign up (including residents) as a forum
> Dedicated Pro-Active Vehicle allocated to designated are (never leaves area and carrying out patrols 24/7)

> Recommended electric fence is linked to Oracle Protection Services Control Room, although Response will be on-site.
> Would be perpetrators gain access over live electric fences by short circuiting the electric fence with insulated twigs and other implements.
> Loops to be installed along perimeter electric fence to prevent perpetrators form obtaining access.
> The loop connection from the Energizer should be configured to ensure a live top and bottom wire.
> It is suggested that due to vastness of the estate that beams are installed along the wall which will also alleviate the possibility of perpetrators gaining access over the electric fence.
> Beams are an effective way of deterring would be criminals.
> Although expensive, it is advisable that only the best be installed.
> The effectiveness of the beam depends on the positioning of these items, the surrounding bush, trees and birds in the garden or loss of greenery.
> The entrance to the Complex / Estate should be extremely well lit.
> The electric fence can be zoned with strobe lights to increase security. Should the fence be activated, it will be easier to detect where the fence was activated.
> Floodlights can be fitted along fence - this will minimize the potential risk of unauthorized access to the Complex.
> Floodlights have proven to be a good security deterrent at potentially week points along the perimeter.
Remotes For Alarm Systems
> Many residents are still using their panels to arm and disarm their alarm systems.
> This often causes false alarm activations due to the time set to allow your arm and exit or enter and the disarm.
> We strongly suggest that clients look at different remotes for this function. Most remotes come with multiple buttons - Arm, Disarm, Panic and the others may be connected to your motorized gate to ensure that you are safe in your vehicle and do not have to get out to open any gates. The gate can then be closed safely behind your vehicle when you are behind the gates.
> The remote can also be kept close at hand when you are in the garden, entertaining outside - by simply pressing the panic button, you will aler6t the armed response to come to your aid.
Pannic Button System Linked To Oracle Protection services
> A panic button system can be linked to Armed Reaction at a once-off cost and a monthly monitoring fee.
> This ensures that the Guard on duty has some sort of back-up in the form of Armed Response.
Guarding Monitoring System
> A 5-point Guard Monitoring System can be implemented at the complex to ensure proper and effective patrolling of the guards in the complex. If a guard fails to visit a specific guarding point, a failure signal will be sent to Platinum Protection Services Control Room and Platinum Protection Service's on-site guard will investigate immediately.
> The fixed panic button on the Guard Monitoring System can be pressed in case of emergency and Dunmar Armed Reaction will respond immediately.
> Stickers are only for the use of Resident's vehicles in order to prohibit unauthorized entry. All other vehicles (visitors, deliveries, etc.) are required to sign in the Access Control book.
> The guards will ensure that each vehicle is identified before letting a vehicle enter or exit the complex.
> Guards will identify occupants of each vehicle before opening the gate.

FOR OUR LADIES AND OUR SENIOR CITIZENS... PLEASE: LOOK AFTER YOURSELVES.
LOOK AT THE POSSIBILITY OF OBTAINING A PEPPER SPRAY OR SHOCK STICK (IN THE GUISE OF ATORCH) AND KEEP IT ON YOU!
If you are driving keep one on your lap. Going to the ATM or shopping? Keep one in your hand Do Not Hesitate to use the spray or the Shock Stick - This may just save your life. The spray will blind the perpetrator, giving you sufficient time to get away or raise an alarm (turn your head away as the spray may blow towards you)
The Shock Stick looks like a torch - keep this on a wrist strap and use it - this will put the perpetrator down and allow you sufficient time to get away and raise an alarm.
