Business Owners in Kenya can now operate without worrying about criminals and cut on security costs by up to 60 percent, thanks to Warrior Insight’s RS24, a 24 hour audio visual security system capable of detecting and intercepting criminal activities around the premises.
This technology brings relief to business operators who have been forced to hire more security guards in the wake of increased security scares in the country made worst by terror activities in the region. Last year, Kenyan businesses lost billions of shillings due to insecurity with the latest survey by Research Solutions Africa showing that more than 75 percent of business operators in Kenya had seen a deterioration of general security over the past two years.
In 2015, businesses in the country lost at least Sh15Bn to cyber crime alone, this according to Kenya Cyber Security Report 2015.
The system has a combination of 24-hour smart cameras, virtual trip wires, and voice intervention technologies is designed to replace current security measures such as manned guarding, electric fencing, intruder alarms and guard dogs which are costly and less intelligent to counter the growing spate of industrial and business crime rate in most urban centres in Kenya.
“RS24 is based on the latest international security technologies available, and its specifically designed to prevent crime before it happens. It’s very similar to systems that are currently used around the world to protect nuclear facilities, airports and government buildings, so we’re pleased to be able to offer this specially tailored product to local Kenyan businesses. RS24 is the first security system of its kind in East Africa,’’ said Adam Miller, CEO of Warrior Insight Kenya
He added that the system is a win-win for any business owner because there is no capital expenditure required to switch, and it’s cheaper for most businesses than their current system. ‘Crime levels have increased and criminals are more sophisticated, so RS24 not only offers a much better 21st Century solution, it also saves you money,’’ he explained
Research Solutions Africa survey cited terror threats, cyber crime, mobile scams, and employee fraud as leading business crime in Kenya with 90 per cent of respondents citing a rise in theft in particular as a major issue for their businesses.
This has forced them to look for alternative security solutions to combat the rise in crime levels, with some increasing their security budgets by three folds.
