MAG turut mendapat kepercayaan daripada negara jiran, Indonesia apabila dua kali dalam masa 10 tahun sebagai pembekal pintu akses tiket ke stesen Transit Bas Laju (BRT) TransJakarta.

Masalah keselamatan semasa pandemik

Tidak menafikan turut terkesan dengan masalah pandemik yang melanda, CEO (MAG) Jimmy Low berkata, syarikat tidak sepatutnya mengurangkan peruntukan kepada keselamatan kerana berlaku peningkatan kes pecah masuk syarikat apabila pekerja tidak bekerja di pejabat.

“Ketika ini semua pihak harus lihat kembali adakah peruntukan untuk sistem keselamatan harus ditambah atau dikurangkan. Bangunan yang kosong menjadi tarikan kepada pencuri melakukan aktiviti mereka tidak kira waktu siang atau malam. Sistem keselamatan yang lemah memudahkan aktiviti mereka,” katanya.

Penghuni yang tinggal berseorangan juga tidak terlepas menjadi sasaran pencuri yang terdesak terutama jika kediaman tidak dilengkapi sebarang sistem keselamatan.

FINDING SECURITY IN UNCERTAIN TIMES

By Highlight

THROUGH the decades, a small-scale family business providing autogate systems has evolved into a company that specialises in complete solutions in security and automation systems.

Founded in 1980 by the Low family’s patriarch, Magnet Security and Automation Sdn Bhd (MAG) now meets the needs of the Malaysian and South-East Asian markets.

“Over the years we have been selling stand-alone products, which sometimes can be a little infuriating for some of our clients, ” said MAG chief executive officer Jimmy Low, who is the successor and son of the founder.

“We strive to stay at the leading edge of new technology,” said Jimmy Low.

He shared that the company aspired to be different which also happens to be part of its ethos.

“With market insights, we saw an opportunity to provide a holistic solution by integrating relevant products into one solution for our customers such as dealers, office project managers, building consultants and end consumers.

We have progressed from just providing standalone products to a comprehensive, integrated solution for three key target areas such as MAG Guardhouse Solution, MAG Building Solution and MAG House Solution, ” he added.

MAG has also expanded its services to selecting, designing, and building solutions to ensure customers’ peace of mind.

With some 238 projects under its belt, MAG has racked up a diversified portfolio of clients that includes buildings, properties with guardhouses and even homes.

Prominent landmarks protected by its business solutions are Hospital Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (HUKM) in Cheras, KL, the Immigration checkpoint in Bukit Kayu Hitam and Sarawak Energy Green building.

Magnet Security and Automation Sdn Bhd’s quality control team at work to ensure every product complies to the stringent quality requirement of ISO9001:2015.

Low stressed the importance of a team that shared similar aspirations with the company.

“Our i-Magnet Cares service ensures that we can resolve dealers technical and warranty inquiries in the shortest time possible, ” he added.

With a robust network of over 1,500 dealers, MAG is fully equipped with the necessary technical and product knowledge to serve customers.

“We strive to stay at the leading edge of new technology, and we work hard to make sure that our clients receive the full benefits of this new technology, ” he said.

Rolling with the times

With Malaysians working from home and office buildings remaining vacant in the wake of the movement control order (MCO), Low believes that this raises security concerns.

“A lot of valuable equipment and items are now left in empty buildings and are susceptible to theft and vandalism.

Integrated security solutions with advanced control software for seamless surveillance management.

“It is necessary for business owners and building managers to make sure their occupant’s valuables are protected, ” said Low.

With an integrated security system, this can be done while away from workplaces, he stressed.

This would grant business and factory operators greater control over the building’s security to make operations easier and more effective.

“Operating from a centralised location, our software can integrate all security systems within the building as well as its remote branches ensuring greater safety and peace of mind, ” he added.

Jimmy believes that by filtering out people at building entrances, 90% of security threats could be effectively eliminated.

The MagEtegra is one of its well-known security software suites that monitors tenants and visitors entering a building.

Door, parking, lift and pedestrian gate access as well as multifunction surveillance cameras (CCTV) and timed attendance are all managed from a single platform.

The software suite is user-friendly, making it suitable for small offices and powerful enough to manage security for an entire building.

Keeping communities safe and secure

Low shared that working from home is turning homes into primary workspaces and this could have its own set of shortcomings.

According to the Malaysia 2020 Crime and Safety report, residential break-ins are common and single-occupant homes are the most targeted.

Gated high-rise apartment complexes with 24-hour guards and electronic access control systems have a much lower burglary rate.

For residents in gated communities, MAG’s guardhouse solution helps streamline visitor registration and resident gate access to ensure effective surveillance of security personnel.

Residents would also benefit from the long-range reader, where entering and exiting their gated homes would be a smooth experience.

Magnet Security and Automation Sdn Bhd’s latest Xclone long range reader with encrypted access card helps increase security by preventing access cards to be cloned.

Furthermore, the MAG House Solution is equipped with end-to-end product offerings for convenient security with autogate systems, enhanced CCTV, burglar alarm and motion detector.

“With media reports highlighting that most burglaries happen at night, installing a CCTV that shows clear video straight to your mobile phone is good evidence for the authorities.

“However, an advanced alarm system and motion detector installed around your house compound is sometimes good enough to scare off robbers before they even touch the walls of a home, ” said Low.

BARRIER GATE INSTALLATION

By Highlight

What are 6 important things to take note for correct barrier gate installation?

Barrier gates can be seen almost everywhere in Malaysia, from the urban areas to the suburbs, barrier gates have become the frontline of security in car parks of housing areas, shopping malls, office buildings etc.

You will find that different installer will quote you different installation price. Some quotation is very cheap and some quotation might seemed more expensive. Before you make your final decision, it is worthwhile to understand some of the important aspect of barrier gate installation and how it impact the installation price of a barrier gate. Therefore, before your next barrier gate installation, here are some things to take note of in order to get the right barrier gate installation.

1.  Road condition.
The cabinet of the auto barrier gate system should be stationed on an even and concrete surface. Otherwise, the installer has to build a stable and horizontal foundation pit to support the automatic barrier gate, especially on slopes. In addition, the technician has to make sure that there are no pipes or cables on it. However, do remember to lay corrugated tubes and power cables before the concrete hardens.

2. Fixing barrier gate.
The price you pay for the automatic barrier gate is inclusive of its setup from top to bottom. The first step begins with fixing the car park barrier on the ground. In order to get the right position, technicians will usually use a pen or soft tapes to mark holes with the clamping blocks. Once they have confirmed the position of the holes, then they will start drilling them. Using screws and bolts, the auto barrier gate system is then fixed to the base.

3. Inner part wiring.
When a dealer installs the automatic barrier gate for clients, the price includes a full installation of the auto barrier gate system. According to the wiring diagram provided, the technician will be able to install the system for their clients. When fixing up the control box, the right way is to connect the triple mounted button to the last terminal block. It is better for technicians to remove the terminal block, so that the procedure of screwing in the wires is easy. Wiring should be neat inside the barrier gate metal housing.

4. Adjustment of spring.
After the arm of the automatic barrier gate has been screwed in, and the wiring has been done, then it’s time to check the movement of the arm. The installers will turn the power on, and manually move the motor for the parking barrier arm. If the barrier feels heavier when going downwards, it means that the spring is too tight. If it feels heavier when moving upwards, then the spring is too loose. The technician will to free the clutch at 45 degree and adjust the spring (tighten it or loosen it) until the arm can achieve equilibrium position at 45 degree. If this step is not done correctly, barrier gate motor will need to endure unnecessary mechanical burden that will significantly shorten the life time of the barrier gate.

5. Loop detector
The parking barrier gate can be installed with a loop detector. A loop detector functions to trigger barrier gate’s arm to automatically close after a vehicle have completely pass through the passage. Of course, the price of the installation would be different because the ground loop detector requires a groove to be made in the ground. The 25mm-deep groove allows the installer to make 4 loops with the wire. Usually the loop detector controller is installed inside the housing of parking barrier gate.

6. EARTH connection
Barrier gate installed outdoor is exposed to electrical surge from lightning. We strongly recommend AC230 surge protector is installed to the power supply connection inside the barrier gate to prevent it from being burned by lighning. On top of that, barrier gate metal housing must be connected to EARTH to ensure the extra FATAL currents can be drained effectively during rainy days. We definitely do not want anyone to be electrocuted when they touch the barrier gate during rainy days.

WHAT ARE THE 5 MOST IMPORTANT THINGS IN A CCTV SYSTEM?

By Knowledge Sharing

Before you install a CCTV system at your premise, there are a few important things that you should take note of before investing a large sum into a valuable tool.

1. Night Vision

If you’re using a CCTV for night recordings, you will have to choose one that offers good night vision. When the environment becomes dark, meaning that it has a low LUX (lumens per square meter), a good quality CCTV system should capture everything clearly in black and white with the help of its infrared LED. High-grade CCTV cameras such as the Magtec AX series, produce non-pixelated images in low-light conditions, enabling you to view a person’s face clearly with no noise at all.

2. Areas to cover

What are the areas that you would like the CCTV to cover at your premise? Whether it’s your front yard, backyard, office or shop corridor, you’ll need to make sure that the CCTVs have the right coverage in these areas. You don’t want to be missing out on any corners or prominent spots where people can come and leave without being recorded. Professional CCTV system installers will help survey the premise and understand the operations of a place to identify the spots with high vulnerability. Image might appear too small if CCTV camera is installed too far away from target area. Using the correct lens will zoom in to the target area so that the target area will appear big enough for meaningful viewing.

3. Wired or wireless

Traditional wired CCTVs have a more stable data transmission because it isn’t prone to interference or unstable internet connections like how a wireless CCTV would. On the contrary, a wireless CCTV is mobile and much easier to install as there is no need to drill holes for wiring works. Thus, you can change where you put it without much trouble. Compare their pros and cons prior to the purchase, then consider both options based on your criteria.

4. Storage

There are 2 ways to store the recorded videos – hard disk and cloud storage. Cloud storage requires less maintenance because the providers manage the upgrades and issues of the cloud storage. Unlike a hard disk, you do not have to often replace it, all you have to do is notify the service provider to increase or decrease space. On the other hand, with hard disk storage, you have control over the data anytime, even without the internet. It also prevents your data from being stolen via network hacking. It is important to use hard disk designed for CCTV purpose to ensure the hard disk can withstand constant 24 hours non-stop data writing.

5. Resolution

Depending on your premise and your needs, CCTV video resolutions can be a key factor for your CCTV system requirements. QCIF videos are lowest in quality with pixels of 176 x 120, and 5MP videos are the highest with pixels of 2592 x 1944. Of course, it’s best to get CCTVs with high pixels because it’s definitely clearer. Even when you zoom into a video showing the back of a car from a distance, you’ll still be able to see its car plate number.
