Why Building Needs Elevator Monitoring?



Elevator is a critical system in building, it will eventually require attention that goes beyond what routine maintenance can provide. For your building to stay competitive with regard to maintaining its value and tenant confidence, you need to monitor your elevator so you know when to service an ageing system.

  • To record and address malfunctions - Every attribute of the elevator should be carefully controlled to ensure that things are working well at all times. A very fast ride can be physically detrimental to the passengers, while a very slow ride can impede traffic flow throughout the building, tempting users to overfill the elevator when they get the opportunity to use it.

  • Stop Crime - Monitoring of elevator is mainly aimed at identifying and addressing malfunctions before any damage occurs, active monitoring can also help to spot unscrupulous individuals looking to commit crimes in the elevators or even worse.

  • User safety - Elevator monitoring ensures that the elevators are operating properly at all times and that the passengers riding within them will be safe in the event that something goes wrong.

  • Customer service - Although there are different kinds of people using the elevators, it is best to optimize them for passengers who are in a hurry. Effective elevator monitoring helps to identify issues that may cause delays, such as signal delays or pranks where someone pushes every floor button and then exits, to ensure optimal and consistent elevator performance and avoid related discontent within the building.

More Cameras will install at Delhi Metro Network



The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation is installing state-of-the-art CCTV cameras at its new corridors that will become operational this year, taking the total number of cameras in metro network from the present 9,029 to more than 13,000. There are 183 operational stations in the Delhi Metro network, which will go up to 227 this year with the opening of the remaining new sections of the Magenta and Pink Lines Metro. DMRC and Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) together plan to provide a tight security blanket across all the new corridors and stations. Moreover, the new cameras being brought by the DMRC are technologically more advanced than the present ones installed at operational stations. CISF has two security control centres – one at Shastri Park from where Yellow, Red and Green Lines are monitored and the other at Metro Bhawan near Barakhamba Road, from where Blue, Violet, Pink and Magenta Lines are monitored. CCTV cameras are monitored by both DMRC officials such as station controllers and our personnel as part of parallel monitoring. The numbers of cameras required depend on the size of the station, interchange facility, crowd and number of exist and entry points.

Road Traffic Accidents – A Public Health Issue




Road traffic accidents (RTAs) have emerged as an important public health issue which needs to be tackled by a multi-disciplinary approach. The trend in RTA injuries and death is becoming alarming in countries like India. The number of fatal and disabling road accident happening is increasing day by day and is a real public health challenge for all the concerned agencies to prevent it. Awareness creation, strict implementation of traffic rules, and scientific engineering measures are the need of the hour to prevent this public health catastrophe. A three-layer audit before new roads are constructed, and star ratings for existing roads in the city are in the offing under Delhi government newly drafted Delhi Road Safety Policy regarding road safety.                                                  
The policy states that there will be a road safety audit of all roads in a phased manner, with two years of the policy coming into effect, to identify road engineering and signage defects. Sustainable improvements, the policy says, will be carried out in the road network of by taking necessary actions such as road markings, putting up speed limit signage, warning signs, and redesigning.

Siren (Alarm)






siren is a loud noise making device. Civil defensesirens are mounted in fixed locations and used to warn of natural disasters or attacks. Sirens are used on emergency service vehicles such as ambulancespolice cars, and firetrucks. There are two general types: 1.pneumatic and 2.electronic. Many fire sirens (used for calling the volunteer fire fighters) serve double duty as tornado or civil defense sirens, alerting an entire community of impending danger. Most fire sirens are either mounted on the roof of a fire station or on a pole next to the fire station. Fire sirens can also be mounted on or near government buildings, on tall structures such as watertowers, as well as in systems where several sirens are distributed around a town for better sound coverage. Most fire sirens are single tone and mechanically driven by electric motors with a rotor attached to the shaft. Some newer sirens are electronically driven speakers. Electronic sirens incorporate circuits such as oscillatorsmodulators, and amplifiers to synthesize a selected siren tone (wail, yelp, pierce/priority/phaser, hi-lo, scan, airhorn, manual, and a few more) which is played through external speakers. It is not unusual, especially in the case of modern fire engines, to see an emergency vehicle equipped with both types of sirens. Often, police sirens also use the interval of a tritone to help draw attention.

Walkie-Talkie






walkie-talkie is a hand-held, portable, two-way radio transceiver.walkie-talkies spread to public safety and eventually commercial and jobsite workTypical walkie-talkies resemble a telephone handset, with a speaker built into one end and a microphone in the other (in some devices the speaker also is used as the microphone) and an antenna mounted on the top of the unit. A walkie-talkie is a half-duplex communication device. Multiple walkie-talkies use a single radio channel, and only one radio on the channel can transmit at a time, although any number can listen. The transceiver is normally in receive mode; when the user wants to talk he presses a "push-to-talk" (PTT) button that turns off the receiver and turns on the transmitter. Walkie Talkies use a radio frequency, normally around 466 MHz, to allow basic chat over short and medium distances. Because of this PMRs (private mobile radio) have quite a lot of uses including:
·          Lifeguards
·          Police Service
·         Shopping centre security
·         Shop / Warehouse staff
·         Skiing trips
·         Hiking
Why do I need a Walkie Talkie?
A Walkie talkie can provide you  with a way of contacting someone in an emergency, especially when a mobile signal isn’t achievable. With a range being between 6km and 12km on a basic Walkie Talkie, allows you to work over large distances without having to worry about connection loss.

What Security Guards Look Out For During Patrolling




Looking out for anything #suspicious  
During security #patrols, security guards look out for #objects that are out of place, such as bags, briefcases and other objects which could potentially be #harmful.
Taking note of #people with odd and unusual behavior
#Training also taught #securityguard how to identify and deal with #individuals who might pose a security #threat to what the guards are protecting. Security guard would need to look out for specific behavior such as hanging around the same #place for too long without seeming to have any #business there.
Providing help to individuals who need
When a guard is on patrol, they are likely to come into #contact with lost people and then #guide them on how to get to where they need to go.
Spotting ongoing #crimes and stopping them
In the case of a #building, for instance, any would-be #intruder would choose an entry point that is far away from the guard’s #station so as not to be seen. However, if the guards are on regular patrolling, then they are more likely to be caught in the #act, #leading to a higher #chance of stopping the crime and apprehending the #suspects.
