Management platforms have found a home in many residential estates and are used for a variety of security functions. Unfortunately, due to costs, old technology or bad product decisions, some estates have multiple management platforms for different security functions, and some older technologies are not able to integrate into current, open-standards platforms. In a world where there are almost innumerable vendors offering different management platforms, with integration and expansion promises differing in all of them, as well as different costs, what should estates do to ensure they invest in a management platform that not only meets their needs today, but can do so well into the future, potentially also integrating non-security functions into the interface to assist with operational management as well as security?
Savannah Hills Estate is located in Midrand, close to Blue Valley Golf Estate. Since February 2018, the estate manager, Dawie van Rensburg has been planning a security upgrade, involving perimeter cameras. The project finally went out to tender, which was awarded to Rhyco Risk Projects. The project started in March 2019 and was completed in May 2019. The estate has two river crossings which can cause nuisance alarms due to insects. Rhyco made use of the Cathexis Vision’s VMS platform, ensuring proper analytics and making use of the Cathexis dynamic background function, ensuring that nuisance alarms are kept to the minimum.

Commercial environments are no longer looking for individual security solutions. Today they want a package that offers all the aspects of security they need. Part of the reason for this move is cost based – it’s supposedly cheaper and more convenient to get it all from one supplier. Another reason is the need for integrated solutions that talk to each other for easier management and improved security.
Frankfurt, Germany/ Durban, South Africa – inMotion, a global camera, imaging and detector supplier, and Cathexis, a South African based, world leading Video Surveillance Management solutions developer announced today a worldwide partnership in technology and integration.
Surveillance is the celebrity of the security world. Whenever one hears of new technology or innovative products, chances are it will be in the field of video surveillance. There are, of course, many advances and innovations in other security fields, but the world of surveillance gets most of the attention and a large chunk of the global security spend.
The danger in creating silos of the separate elements of a security system is that full functionality cannot be achieved since these elements are unable to communicate effectively. The end result is a system that falls short of its possible potential to provide organisations with a solution that leverages the full functionality of the individual parts of the whole.

While a security system is often sidelined as a grudge purchase in most sectors, there can be no debate about its critical importance in the banking sector.
Intelligent security systems are now more important than ever before as banks try to guard against both internal and external fraud in an ever worsening economic climate.
