KSS Incidents 16 - 27 October 2019

Dear KSS Clients

KSS Operations staff are alert and responsive. There have been a number of incidents over the past 2 weeks and this is a long report, but positive results were yielded by having alarms as deterrents and then quick responding Armed Reaction. The UCSI has again impacted the area positively, facilitating the detainment of at least 4 vehicles this past fortnight.

Opportunistic crime (criminals on foot)
Please take note that petty, opportunistic crime is on the up. Please don’t leave garden furniture, implements, bicycles etc... lying around, in view of the road or in unlocked garden sheds. Please report suspicious people, vehicles, behaviour etc… to the KSS control room on 033 3305911.

TV’s are the main target item at the moment. Please secure your perimeter fences (you can get these alarmed or have external beams as early detectors of unwanted people on site).

The impact of Load Shedding on your home and business security.
Load shedding is back and we at Knight Security Solutions (KSS) would like to remind you of the following information so that you are advised and aware.

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.

KSS has taken proactive measure to ensure your safety during load shedding. These are:
1. KSS has increased the number of controllers in the Control Room.

Note: During load shedding the alarm signals received in the Control Room are on an average over 3200 and they happen quite suddenly. All security companies experience these massive spikes in signals received – it is an industry related issue caused by load shedding or an unforeseen power outage. An excessive amount of low battery signals and mains failure signals are received in the Control Room, and it is very demanding on the Controllers.

Note: When the power restores to the systems, dependant on the type of system, the alarm trips as one of the following: a panic, a burglary activation or a power restoral. This is the period which becomes extremely stressful on any security company, as we are unable to determine if the activations are a real emergency or an activation as a result of the power restoring to the system – and it all happens simultaneously.

Request: Please can clients phone in to the Control Room and cancel all confirmed false alarm during load shedding. This will help Controllers clear the “stack”.

Note: Load shedding may affect your gate battery. This makes it very difficult for Response Officers to check on alarms when the gates don’t work due to flat gate batteries.

2. KSS has two back-up generators at the KSS Control Room ensuring that there is NEVER a loss of power in the Control Room.
