KSS Incident Report 24 - 31 August 2020
Dear KSS Client
Alert KSS Officers continue to apprehend criminals and support SAPS in keeping our communities safe.
Alarm and security advice
Please remember to set your alarms. Also ensure that all out-buildings, garages and storerooms are protected by an alarm. You can also link your gate to your house alarm. For all your alarm system installations and upgrades, CCTV cameras, gate alarms, biometrics, access control, guarding and other security advice, KSS are able to assist you.
Your home and business alarms
Please make sure that all parts of your personal and business alarm systems are working – including the outdoor beams and the panic buttons. It is your responsibility to test and ensure that your system is working.
Make sure your property is clearly numbered
Clear numbering will ensure that all Response and Emergency services are easily able to locate your property.
Electricity outages can compromise your security systems
Security alarm systems, access control, electric gates and electric fences are all dependent on electricity. Load shedding can however compromise the life of these security measures. Under normal circumstances, the back-up battery will power these systems for up to eight hours, BUT this time is dependent on a number of factors, such as: how many devices are linked to the battery, the age of the battery and how many load shedding events have happened during the past 24 hours. All these factors can severely affect the life-span of your back-up battery supply. Contact KSS on 033 330 5911 for further advice and assistance.
