Commercial Case Study: The Old Bakery Shopping Centre


Despite an after hours guarding service on site ,our clients tenants experienced regular breakins after hours. A guard was even attacked and subdued in one incident .


The accredited Installer supplied an 8 channel DVR and associated infra red and dome cameras linked to a Paradox panel and outdoor passives . This system is armed after hours , and Verifier monitors any onsite activity – no after hours guards on site .

All tenants and daytime security also have long range panic remotes enabling them to activate a silent panic during trading hours if required – in which case Verifier monitors and controls the situation . Interactive electronic site-mapping is used as a tool to guide the Verifier Controller and they can activate panics to the clients armed response company .


  • The client benefits from a drastically reduced spend on monthly security :
  • Installation cost R 57 000 financed over 3 years at approx R 2 000 pm PLUS monitoring fee R 1500 pm , maintenance and insurance R 500 = R 4000 pm total spend……guard saving on a/h guard (R 8000pm)………nett saving on security spend R 4000 pm .
  • The system improves site security and eliminates collusion and other human performance related issues. Where guards are reduced to access control only after hours , performance is monitored by us .
  • The whole site is virtually guarded while armed for activations – eliminating the need for inefficient patrolling .
  • Tenants and patrons safety is enhanced – with visual escorts for openings and closings . After hours criminal activity has been eliminated……
