Security

Security is a primary concern for most people. Everyone wants to know that their families and homes are protected and kept safe, whether they are there or not.  This is one of the most fundamental principles upon which Kyalami Estates was founded. 

The Perimeter

The Estate is enclosed by an eight-kilometre-long high brick wall. The wall is topped by an electric fence divided into multiple zones and monitored 24/7 by guards in a secure control room.  The perimeter is further enhanced with video surveillance, including infrared, movement-detection and thermal imagery cameras.

Gatehouses

Each gatehouse is manned by a team of security access controllers.  These men and women are the first line of contact for all Residents and visitors.  Strict access control policies are in place for all visitors to the Estate, which includes the use of Resident-authorised access codes and vehicle and driver scanning procedures. A double boom system is in place at all entrance lanes into the Estate to prevent any person gaining access without following the required procedures.

Video Surveillance

A CCTV Camera surveillance system exists at both gatehouses, with cameras capturing visual details of everyone coming into and out of the Estate. There are cameras outside the gates monitoring the surrounding areas.  There is also a full CCTV infrastructure deployed within the Estate to enable monitoring of every street.

Biometric Access Control

Residents gain access to the Estate using biometric (fingerprint) readers at both gates.

Inside The Estate

A CCTV Camera surveillance system exists at both gatehouses, with cameras capturing visual details of everyone coming into and out of the Estate. There are cameras outside the gates monitoring the surrounding areas.  There is also a full CCTV infrastructure deployed within the Estate to enable monitoring of every street.

The Control Room

The Control room is the hub of the security infrastructure. The team manning the Control room monitors the electric fence, the CCTV camera systems and thermal cameras as well as the Residents’ house alarms. They dispatch the reaction officers to any area within the Estate requiring investigation or anyone needing assistance.

Security Management

A full time Security Manager is on site overseeing all aspects of the guarding services. He ensures that protocols are followed and that the correct course of action is taken for all incidents. He is responsible for ensuring that the highest level of service is provided by the security team within the Estate. Security systems and procedures are constantly being refined and reviewed to ensure that Kyalami Estates remains a safe and secure haven for its Residents.
