Australia is generally considered a safe country. It is the 13th safest country in the world.  The year 2020 showed a drop in crime attributed to the restrictions due to the global pandemic. 

However, these statistics are just meaningless numbers to someone whose property has been broken into.  If you live in Sydney, New South Wales, there are higher chances of being the victim of crime than anywhere else in the state. If you are concerned about your premises, family, and possessions’ security and safety, here are a few suggestions.

ANPR or Automatic Number Plate Recognition system is an access control system used at the entrance of a secured area, like a parking lot. It has a camera that automatically reads the registration numbers (Rego) on the number plates of vehicles as they arrive at the gate. The registration number is checked on a database, and the system decides whether to allow or deny entry. If the access is confirmed, then the ANPR controller sends an automatic alert to the barrier gate to open, allowing access to the vehicle. 

The system is simple to set up, easy to operate, and a smart solution for keeping your premises safe. Automatic Number Plate Recognition systems record information about vehicles that approached the property. It functions similarly to CCTV by providing details if required as evidence in an investigation. 

Moreover, ANPR technology is extremely cost-effective since it eliminates the need for security personnel.

Another fantastic option to secure premises is the Automatic Sliding Gates in Sydney.  They provide both safety and convenience by protecting the premises from unwanted intrusions, either vehicles or people. These gates move to the left or right on a fixed track, installed along the base of the gate. A sensor can control the gate opening mechanism, either wi-fi operated through an app or by punching a code on a keypad.  Besides the security aspect, automatic sliding gates are compact and space-efficient when there is restricted space inside the gate.  The gates are excellent at providing security because they are almost impossible to be broken into or forced open. 

 If you are looking for functionality and elegance, the gates are perfect because they come in multiple attractive designs that suit almost every budget.

One should note, however, that automatic sliding gates need a high level of maintenance. The track needs to be regularly cleaned and kept clear of grease, insects, dust, and debris to ensure that the gates open and shut smoothly and efficiently.  While the electrics that operate the gates will function well for almost a decade, they will need to be repaired or replaced with regular long-term use. Luckily, most reputed companies that design and install the gates will also be responsible for automatic gate repairs.   

As an employer or a family man, you no doubt feel responsible for your employees and your loved ones’ safety. Give yourself the peace of mind you deserve by securing your property without delay.
