Masters Security Services, a subsidiary of Masters Group Limited has launched a new Ultra-tech Panic and Intrusion Alarm system that uses mobile phone network to send signals to the company’s control centre and its clients during an intrusion or when there is an electric fire at the clients’ premises.
The new security system was officially launched Saturday evening (November 3, 2016) at Lilongwe Golf Club (LGC), where the company sponsored a day-long golf competition.
Speaking during the unveiling ceremony of the new technology, which coincided with the golf prize presentation, Masters Security Business Development Director Christopher Njeula urged golfers and other clients to utilise the new security technology and other services offered by the Lilongwe based company, which has been in the business for four years.
“The Ultra-tech Panic and Intrusion Alarm uses mobile phone network to send signals to our control centre and at the same time the client when there is an intrusion at the client’s premises. It can accommodate five phone lines at a time and has an ability to detect an electric fire. Thirdly, the alarm can be coded to an electric gate to record any entry and exit.
“This is a vital security feature that offers value for money and peace of mind for our clients. We acquired the software from South Africa in June this year and secured exclusive rights to be the only company offering this sophisticated technology in Malawi last month,” said Njeula, adding the new solution is three steps ahead of the ordinary alarm system used by the company, which clients can still use.
To acquire the new gadget, customers are supposed to pay K550,000 but Lilongwe Golf Club members have been given a special offer of K350,000 per gadget as the company celebrates the launch.
Central Region Police Commissioner Clifford Davison Bandawe, who witnessed the official launch commended Masters Security for the new initiative, which he said would contribute to the Malawi Police Service’s efforts of curbing crime in the country.
“This is a very good initiative and we encourage Malawians to utilise the services offered by these private security firms apart from the general security that the police provides.
“ The good thing is that Malawi Police Service works hand in hand with duly recognised private security firms including Masters Security and guards from these private companies are accompanied by our officers when they need fire arms,” said Bandawe.
Apart from the new technology, Masters Security offer a number of security solutions ranging from standard guards, elite team and the ordinary alarm response team.
