Bruce Schneier ( titled “Security Guru” by The Economist ) has articulated its need by stating that “Security is not a product, it is a process”. While he meant this for cyber security, we can also apply this for security in general– for a security system to work efficiently, we need to prepare the environment to be conducive.
Japan, Korea, and Western countries have already implemented a digitalized security system its in housing and infrastructure projects. This has not only helped in identifying the perpetrators but also dissuaded them, thus reducing the crime rates.
The other aspect of secured living space is to implement preventive measures for unforeseeable circumstances. Maharashtra RERA has imposed compliances regarding the structure of the building to ensure safety of its residents. Only after inspection is the Occupancy Certificate-OC and RERA certificate issued by the authorities.
Barring these general regulations, several real estate developers in Mumbai have incorporated additional security systems throughout their projects as it is also considered a USP by home buyers.
To get an insight into these modern technologies, we shall examine Bombay Realty properties in Dadar on how to secure a luxury residential property at various points–
|Security command center|
|400 CCTV for 24x7 surveilance|
|Access Control restricted entry for service staff & visitors|
|RFID access system|
|Motorized lockdown Gates|
|Entrance portal with security cabin|
The premium residential projects in Mumbai have a common issue of tracking the frequency of vehicles that enter the premises. A technology that has revolutionised in fast and efficient tracking of vehicles is RFID. While the inner mechanism is too technical to grasp, consider it similar to that of a barcode scanner. But instead of the requisite of placing objects in the line of sight, RFID uses radio frequency that allows detection of objects moving across larger distances.
The RFID reader scans the RFID tags and stores the information. Another indirect application of this mechanism is that the security guards are alerted beforehand of any unwarranted vehicle trying to trespass.
When one is looking for 4 BHK luxury apartments for his family , the primary concern is how secured is his family.
Considering luxury projects in Mumbai, a plethora of amenities, common spaces, and welfare centres are included in the complex. Access control is the most reliable technology to ensure that the residents can enjoy these privileges safely.
After securing the first tier, the next tier is physically securing the premises. Certain protocols are abided by during emergencies and for precautions –
Investing in human capital is the best defence against security breaches. Bombay Realty has deployed professional security services to ensure proper safety of its residents.
