Haste Makes Waste – Redefining Security with IT

Security is no minor necessity with rising crime everywhere. With cities and towns witnessing a massive population influx every single day of the year, all rounded security is the need of the hour. The bulk of the urban population are starting to depend on apartment complexes, housing societies and gated communities for their housing needs. The reason for this shift towards apartment living is twofold – affordable housing and increased security for themselves as well as their family. Apartment security system, therefore, has no scope to compromise on the hundreds and thousands of residents who consider such communities as their home, as their safe space.

Gatekeeper

What Is All Rounded Security?

Before a community decides on investing in security services and devices, an important question to answer is – what exactly do we mean by security? Is security only about protection from untoward events? Or does it also comprise prevention of untoward events? Does it also include proper mitigation protocols in case of an unfortunate incident?

All rounded security has three major steps – Prevention, Protection and Palliation. Apartment security system must remember all three Ps while setting up an efficient security system.

A security solution should be able to prevent any mishaps. Such a solution should also be able to protect in case something goes wrong. The same solution must be capable of mitigating the damage caused if an emergency arises. Achieving such all rounded benefits from a security solution is possible only when humans and technology work together with a single objective in mind – safety of the people they are responsible for.

Prevention

“Prevention is better than cure” – we have all grown up hearing the adage. Apartment security system is no exception to this rule. Gated communities these days have several entry as well as exit points surrounding the premises. In some cases, the residential section of the community has to share space with the commercial section like office complex or malls. As a result, some gates remain open to the public. Securing all these gates, irrespective of their location, are of utmost importance. Multi level visitor verification and check in increases the scope of safety in such cases. This work is made easier and faster with security software.

There is no replacement of the human instinct in sensing danger. However, information technology goes a long mile to support the human instinct and provide faster resolution and greater efficiency. Apartment security system must put an enormous focus on verification of every single visitor who walks in and walks out of its gates. This process must never be hasty. Saving 30 seconds of time on visitor verification makes no sense if the stake is compromising the lives of children, senior citizens, women and men. Having a strong verification procedure at gates discourage foul play.

Manual verification can be tedious. Visitor management software help to screen visitors faster. Their personal details like name, phone number, photographs, vehicle numbers are recorded and a notification instantly shot to the residents they have come to visit. The resident decides whether or not to entertain a visitor without going through irritating phone calls. Not just that! A digital verification process helps the apartment security system to keep a record of the data of visitors in a digital cloud, accessible from anywhere. Therefore, the security personnel can always keep an eye out for individuals who are not welcome in the premises.

Protection

Sometimes, even the most hawk eyed monitoring by an apartment security system might fail to stop or prevent an emergency situation. In such a case, the system must be equipped with protection. One of the most important aspects of protection is to ensure avoiding repetition. This is possible if an instant incident report is made while the events are still unfolding or still fresh in the memory. Security software provide options to instantly click and save picture on spot with the option to record your statement of the event. This helps in investigations which further contribute to ensure unfortunate incidents are not repeated. Apartment security system records access of every individual who walks in the community premise which in turn makes it easy to track someone when necessary.

Such security software also come packed with emergency alerts that can immediately send SoS messages to chosen contacts. The availability of outside help at such high tension moments is one of the best form of protection one can receive. One may question if these software can help in an emergency situation, when panic is the order of the day. The answer is a resounding yes. The user just has to remember they have something within the grasp of their palms that can protect them from adversity.

In addition to this, as a community practice fire escape drills regularly. Organise regular workshops on self defense and spotting signs that might hint at a security breach.

Palliation

An apartment security system is incomplete without the system of palliation in place. An adverse situation gets worse if there are no systems in place to mitigate the effect of untoward incidents. Emergency alert is again helpful to control the impact of an accident or any security breach in the community. A very small example would be the situation of senior citizens residing alone in gated communities – they are vulnerable to sudden sickness or accidents within their own apartment units; the presence of an emergency alert on their smart phone can help them to ask for instant help, thereby mitigating the impact of the mishap.

Apartment security system do not just offer visitor verification or incident investigation and emergency alerts. They also offer services like parcel management which allows the delivery executives to leave the parcels at gate when no one is at home to receive, thereby taking measures to stop home intrusion as much as possible.

An ideal apartment security system is an integrated system of biometric devices, security cameras. There should be eyes in every corner of the community to ensure absolute safety for each and every resident of the community.

If you are interested in opting for an apartment security solution capable of integrating with all security hardware and create an ambience of safety for your community, you have come to the right place. Contact us today to schedule a demo.

Snakes and Apartment Safety: Prevention & Tips

Gatekeeper Security

Every living being, humans, plants, animals have equal rights to the resources on this planet. However, it will be foolhardy to not be conscious of threats certain animals pose to the human populace, and take sustainable measures to deal with this law of nature.

With the advent of the monsoons, snakes are a common sight everywhere. Apartment complexes provide a safe alternative to their natural habitat. However, by following a few simple steps, apartment management committees can deal with this issue sustainably without compromising on Apartment Safety.

Precautions apartment management committees can take to avoid snake nesting

  1. Discourage planting low dense shrubs in common area. Such vegetation are used as nesting grounds for snakes.
  2. Encourage regular checks of nooks and corners, gardens to ensure there are no nesting grounds. Clean common areas regularly with bleach and carbolic acid. Mow the gardens regularly to create low frequency vibrations on the ground to deter snakes from nesting underground.
  3. Keep pest infestation at minimum. Snakes prey on rodents, lower reptiles, like lizards and insects. Higher the rodent, reptile and insect population, higher the chances of attracting snakes.
  4. Keep local wildlife office contacts handy. On spotting a snake, immediately inform concerned officials who are trained and equipped to remove the snakes.
  5. Do NOT engage with snakes without proper training.

What To Do If You Are Bitten By A Snake?

  • Seek medical attention as quickly as possible.
  • Apply first aid treatment:
    • Remove any jewelry or watches, as these could cut into the skin if swelling occurs, quickening the venom spread in the bloodstream.
    • Keep the area of the bite below the level of the heart in order to slow the spread of venom through the bloodstream.
    • Remain still and calm. Moving around will make venom spread faster through the body. Do not remove any clothes since it will only lead to unnecessary movements.
    • Clean the bite wound after bleeding stops with a wet sterilised cloth or cotton and soap. Try to avoid running water on the wound until medical assistance arrives. Be sure to wipe in the direction away from the wound.
    • The main goal is to administer the correct antivenom as soon as possible. Knowing the size, color and shape of the snake can help Preventions determine the best treatment for a particular bite.
    • Monospecific antivenoms treat the bite of a specific type of snake, while polyspecific antivenoms can treat bites from a number of snakes found in a particular geographic region. Therefore, mentioning the region where the snake bite has occurred is mandatory.

What Not To Do In The Event of A Snake Bite?

  • Don’t apply ice on the snake bite as the ice may block blood circulation.
  • Don’t suck the blood out with your mouth (germs in the mouth may cause infection in the bite wound) and you may be also exposing yourself to the venom.
  • Do not tourniquet any spot around the bite wound. Rather, use splints and bandages to support and tie areas lightly around bite wounds to decrease movement.
  • Don’t attempt to cut the wound.
  • Don’t attempt to guess whether the snake was venomous or not, based on its physical characteristics.

Prevention Is Always Better Than Cure

Snake bite is one of the most underrated causes of accidental deaths in India. The number of deaths due to snake bite, peaks in the monsoon months of June to September. While rural areas bear the brunt of the bulk of these deaths, urban areas are not spared of this unfortunate situation. However, apartment complexes have the necessary resources to ensure the prevention of snake bite related accidents. Let small workshops and seminars be conducted on weekends making residents aware of prevention measures as well as first aid measures. Posters demonstrating the do’s and don’ts in the event of snake bites can be put up on notice boards. Let every resident have access to numbers of the local wildlife boards.

We have technology and modern amenities on our side. A little advance preparation can go a long way to deal with the problem of snakes and snake bites in a sustainable manner while protecting both the animals and humans.

GateKeeper in Dubai – Modern City Problems Require Modern Solutions

GateKeeper-in-Dubai

Dubai has been witnessing a steady drop in crime rates, making it one of the safest cities in the world. The occurrences are low enough to give a feeling of security. Thefts, burglary, break-ins are not a daily affair in Dubai. The Emirate’s strict laws of the land, well trained and well equipped police force, threat of deportation act as excellent deterrent for crimes. Perhaps, that has led to gated communities in Dubai to rely on traditional methods. They are still maintaining visitor ledgers or Excel sheets, instead of switching over to a transparent, modern, accessible digitized visitor management system. However, the traditional method has glaring security faults. Danger being unpredictable, it is always wise to be safe than sorry.

Manual record keeping has several downsides. It may seem like a good idea during the initial days when an apartment community is just starting to settle down. Setting up a wholly manual record keeping system barely costs anything. Thus, it is the preferred choice among community managers and owners association to keep a track of who or what or when someone has access to the apartment complexes. Nevertheless, as apartments start filling up and townships start witnessing more flow of people through the gates, it requires more than a long ledger and Excel sheets to manage gates smoothly.

The Problem Of Too Many

There is more to visitors’ registers than buying and filling them up. Ledgers have to be maintained and stored. They are after all security documents and might be necessary at any time. So the obvious question arises. Where are these ledgers going to be kept, after they are filled up? In cabinets and cupboards, of course. However, ledgers fill up fast. The bigger the apartment complex, the quicker it fills. Naturally, more and more registers are needed. Soon, storing them becomes an issue. Ledgers need a lot of space and space is never easily available. After a point of time, keeping ledgers become impractical majorly due to storage issue.

One can argue, registers are being replaced with Excel sheets thereby digitalizing and cutting down the problem of storing them and misusing space. While Excel sheets are a step forward, it also fails to solve a number of issues. The most important being inability to be quick. Manually entering names and purpose of visit in the Excel sheets is not as easy as it sounds. It often creates queues and hectic visitor management system. It fails to resolve the problem of listing daily visitors, avoiding a repeated entry everyday. The format of the Excel sheet, in the long run, gets unwieldy to tackle, defeating the entire purpose of doing away with ledgers.

Apps like the ADDA Gatekeeper makes gate security paperless. Just a smartphone or a tablet or a PC is enough to ensure meticulous tracking of all visitors, staff and delivery personnel, while not producing clutter.

Visitor Registers Need A Fort

Both ledgers and Excel sheets have another basic drawback. This snag has potential to turn into a disaster. Records kept in ledgers and Excel sheets can be easily damaged, misplaced or compromised. At first glance, this does not appear to be a big deal. However, this is a major security breach. Encouraging or ignoring this possibility puts the apartment community members at risk. One never knows when these records might be needed in the event of a mishap. While discussing this point, may we mention, it is laborious to organise and categorise ledgers and sheets properly. As a result, it gets difficult to retrieve them when needed.

Ledgers and Excel sheets are not immutable. They can easily be changed on purpose or accidentally. Security apps to manage gates, visitor management are more compact and safe for a city like Dubai. Designed by teams of dedicated engineers, security apps like ADDA Gatekeeper, are designed to provide safety with practically zero hassle. Information is stored such that their integrity is protected. They are not shared with anybody and everybody. During times of necessity, information can be easily procured from the database without annoyance and irritation. Since the app has been designed by experts in their field, data entry, data collection are not time consuming. They are concise and quick.

Visitor Management System

Managing visitors is crucial. Now that we are busy and our schedules have a degree of unpredictability, it helps to inform about expected visitors. A verbal intimation to the guards at the gates is not enough. It is presumptuous to expect they will remember amidst so many duties. The ADDA Gatekeeper app helps to notify the guards of any visitor the residents are expecting. They can always call to confirm visitors’ entry based on phone numbers set by residents on the app. They can also keep a tab on regular visitors like household and complex staff, nannies, delivery persons who might be visiting the apartment daily.

We are a generation who shops online and depend online for a lot of our needs and desires. Therefore, we receive parcels often. Sometimes, these parcels are scheduled to be delivered during hours when no one is available to receive them in person. ADDA Gatekeeper helps to inform the gate personnel of any parcel that is expected and they can simply keep it with themselves till one can collect it at their convenience.

The Ghost of Multiplying Expenditure

Ledgers and Excel sheets might seem low cost initially. However, their cumulative expense in the long run is high, considering they are majorly flawed. Ledgers and Excel sheets do not help to monitor visitors in real time. Gatekeeper does. It can track if delivery persons, cab drivers, staff members are overstaying or not. It also helps to check pilferaging and might even help to stop petty thefts by issuing gift passes to individuals who walk out with possessions from the apartment. With manual methods, the efficiency depends a lot on the human factor. It is not easy-breezy to trick an app. It takes care of loopholes, can be modified to requirements and helps deliver the kind of security a gated community with state of the art features deserve.

Security is an immense duty. It cannot be left entirely to the judgement of humans prone to fallacies. It demands the extra edge of precision which nothing other than technology can provide. Gatekeeper was not built with the objective to replace humans; it was envisioned with the motivation to empower the security personnel who have taken upon their shoulders to protect the common people on a daily basis.

Safety of Children in Apartments- Common Area Electric Issues

We are inexpressibly saddened by the accident that happened in an Apartment Community recently where a 6 year old boy got electrocuted.

The little one was playing in the common area, the most common sight in the evenings in every gated community. While retrieving a ball he touched a lamp post which apparently was short-circuited.

The loss of the life is irreparable for the parents, we can hardly imagine the state of the mind when such a thing happens in one of the safest places they have chosen to be – a gated community.

However, there are risks of such electrocution in many gated communities. Common Area Lighting, Decoration lights during festivals, all such electricity usages that are kept openly accessible in common area (and hence to children) must be heavily safeguarded and periodically audited.

We must look inward – what is in our control – and ensure not another child or adult falls in such high-risk deathtrap. Here is a picture of the garden lamps in the author’s own community. Very easily accessible by children.

GateKeeper Children Safety

WHAT CAN I CHECK FOR IN MY GATED COMMUNITY

Here are some tips regards to this incident we can come up with. Please share any you may have.

1) In common areas, wall mount lighting instead of mounting them on iron poles.

2) If poles are unavoidable create an insulating barrier around the poll – made of fibre/wood or other insulators.

3) Enforce safety standards for Decorational lighting during community events – most carelessness happens in this area in the rush of festive preparations.

4) Perform a weekly audit of all such electrical equipment out in the open in the common area, check for proper wiring and insulation best practices (e.g., in older communities common area lamp posts do not have switches. Instead, they have wires that have to be connected and disconnected each time – keeping open high risks of a stray strand of wire coming in touch with the pole. )

RESPONSIBILITY OF ALL RESIDENTS

Found a hanging cable or open electric point? Snap a picture on the ADDA app > Helpdesk, do your duty to report.

Each Resident is the eye and ear of the maintenance team. A living community is one of the most complex infrastructures, maintained with constrained resources. A community that takes responsibility to be the ear and eye of the Maintenance Team can mitigate such Safety Risks.

GENERIC TIPS TO AVOID SUCH FUTURE INCIDENTS

Common area electrical installations exposed to the public are considered for review as under

  1. Test ELR ( Earth Leakage Relay) periodically in the electric panel.
  2. Individual light poles erected to be in touch with the ground to enable tripping of ELR
  3. Avoid lose wiring
  4. Tightening screws of the MCB connected to electric poles
  5. Ensure external electrical panels are covered and locked always.
  6. Waterproofing tapes to be used for external wiring connections.
  7. Armored cables are to be used While laying cable in soil/garden
  8. Armour portion of Armoured cable should be in contact with the panel.
  9. Gardeners should be educated about the cables laid in the garden area.
  10. Vegetation growth around the electrical panel and poles should be cleaned.

Staff Attendance Record & Its Significance

Let’s admit it, without a domestic maid, we’d all be tired to the bone by the end of the day. In between managing our work and running errands, cleaning, scrubbing and washing have become tasks that we totally dread. And thus, we rely heavily on maids and other domestic helpers without whom it is indeed difficult to manage our homes.

So what happens when the maids don’t come on time? And when they later swear that they barely took any holidays in a month so they get full pay? What if they are avoiding your home alone? How do we keep an eye on our domestic help?

ADDA GateKeeper To The Rescue

One of GateKeepers many, many fine features is that it keeps a record of Staff Attendance. Conventionally, manual registers store this information and hence, could be lost easily. If you want to check if your maid turned up on a certain date, you’ll have to get the guards to scourge through the registers to find that info. Clearly, this isn’t ideal.

So if your apartment complex uses the ADDA Gatekeeper, you’ll not only have an assurance of security, you’ll also have a digital record of Staff Attendance.

How Does ADDA Help Track Staff Attendance

Imagine if your apartment complex had a digital attendance record like corporate companies! Each day they take a leave would be captured in the records. This gives rise to countless benefits.

No more arguments about cutting pay: Your maid will not be able to lie about not taking leave on a certain day if the log says otherwise. You’ll be able to give her the exact due she worked for.
If things go missing and comes to your attention at a later point of time, you can easily rule out if it was a maid or someone else.
If your maid is absconding, as in she comes to your apartment but avoids your flat alone, you’ll be alerted to it. ADDA alerts you each time your staff enters the premises.

The Added Benefits

Since we have already established that Staff Attendance has its benefits, let’s also tell you why having a technical security software in place helps.

Imagine a situation where your maid was caught red-handed doing something she wasn’t supposed to. You immediately terminate her employment. But are you sure she won’t sneak back in either to repeat what she did or to cause you harm?

What if she tries to return a year later? The chances are that the guards at the gate may not be the same and hence, could be unaware of her history with crime. They may permit her to enter the premises once again.

To prevent such a scenario, you can now blacklist staff or visitors in ADDA GateKeeper app ensuring that people with a history of offence will never enter the compound again.

Get It Today

We can go on all day about the necessity of having tools like ADDA and ADDA Gatekeeper in place. But we’re sure you already understand their significance.

Kindly get in touch with us if you need a demo of our product so that you can understand its features better. We assure you, you will never feel unsafe if you have ADDA and ADDA GateKeeper deployed in your apartment!

The Peculiar case of 3 Apartments!

A year back we were asked to give a demo of our product in a central Delhi Apartment complex.

The Building was quite old and the Security Guard was very diligently entering all Visitor Data in a register. A resident was standing behind him supervising it.

We were impressed by such diligence regarding Data capture of Visitors.

Soon we got to know the reason and the fact that the process is quite new.

The Complex is surrounded by low-income slums. Residents themselves belong to the middle to upper middle class.

There have been small instances of thefts which the Association decided not to report to police for the hassle and bad reputation of the property.

But recently something happened due to which they went to Police as well as Media!
