What is Videofied?

Videofied is not a CCTV surveillance system that simply records videos that are accessed by the owner. Rather, Videofied is a complete video alarm system that sends a short video clip with the alarm notification to GAC Risk Solutions Control Room for immediate review.

Videofied links the video with GAC Staff in the control room – self-surveillance does not offer this option or layer of security. Our monitored video alarm delivers quicker police dispatch.

How does Videofied work?

When the MotionViewer sensor is tripped, a 10-second video clip of the event is captured and sent to the GAC control room. The wireless, passive infrared sensor (PIR) works with a digital video camera to record color video during the daytime, monochrome at night, all in full VGA resolution. Verification of the event is key – and so is swift, rapid video transfer to the Central Station for review and dispatch. The video clip can also be configured for a lower-resolution, smaller file

Why choose Videofied over another alarm system?

A traditional alarm system notifies you that a sensor was tripped, but can’t verify who or what tripped the alarm. Videofied MotionViewers send a short video clip every time the built-in PIR motion sensor trips, providing immediate verification to the operator at the central monitoring station and enabling Priority Response from the police to make an arrest and stop the intruder

How does Videofied work?

When the MotionViewer sensor is tripped, a 10 second video clip of the event is captured and sent through cell or IP network to a central monitoring station (ARC). The wireless, passive infrared sensor (PIR) works with a digital video camera to record color video during the daytime, monochrome at night, all in full VGA resolution. Verification of the event is key – and so is swift, rapid video transfer to the Central Station for review and dispatch. The video clip can also be configured for a lower-resolution, smaller file

Where can I install a Videofied system?

The entire Videofied system is wireless and capable of running on batteries, so it can be installed anywhere there is cellular reception. Control panels communicate to monitoring stations over the 3G/4G cell network or a wired Ethernet connection. For remote sites where the cellular signal may be weaker, a directional Yagi antenna kit is available.

Do I need lighting? How far do the illuminators reach?

You don’t need to purchase additional lighting. MotionViewers have built-in infrared illuminators with an outdoor range of 30 feet (just over 9 meters), and an indoor range of 23 feet (just over 7 meters).

What if someone grabs the Motion Viewer?

If theft of the system is a major concern, remember that the devices don’t require wiring or power; they can be installed in subtle locations. Even if someone approaches an armed MotionViewer, the event is captured and transmitted to the panel, which may be hundreds of feet away.

Does inclement weather affect the system?

No. Advanced algorithmic technology in the PIR means the MotionViewer doesn’t trip on rain, snow or lightning, except in extreme cases.

What is Videofied?

Videofied is not a CCTV surveillance system that simply records videos that are accessed by the owner. Rather, Videofied is a complete video alarm system that sends a short video clip with the alarm notification to the central station for immediate review. Videofied links the video with the central station – self-surveillance does not. A monitored video alarm delivers quicker police dispatch.

Videofied delivers faster police response to an actual crime because the human operators filter out false alarms. Videofied systems provide responsive security to a large variety of residential, commercial, and industrial sites and applications from large homes and small offices to remote mining plants and urban substations.

Video-verified alarms lead to quicker dispatch and more arrests

The truth is undeniable: video-verified alarms are drastically more effective than traditional alarm systems. Time and again, the benefits reinforce each other:

Where can you use Videofied?

Videofied is proven for protecting remote sites, outdoor locations and assets in harsh environments. We protect cell towers in the heat of the Arizona desert and oil wells during the cold winters of Alberta. Videofied is equally suited for interior residential and commercial applications. Videofied can be used anywhere security is needed: as an upgrade to existing security or standalone

Nyaope (also known as whoonga or wunga) is a highly addictive, dangerous and destructive street drug, unique to South Africa

A single hit can cost as little as R30 for a parcel or straw and is smoked by heating the cocktail of ingredients and inhaling the fumes or to inject it with a needle in their feigns. The blood drug solutions are then extracted from the feigns and injected into their partner to save money. this process is called “BLUETOOTH”

The drug Nyaope is widely sold on most corners in rural areas

Nyaope is a cocktail of illegal drugs

Both heroin and dagga, which are the main narcotic ingredients of nyaope, are listed as undesirable dependence-producing substances in the Drugs Act.

The effects of nyaope include:

Severe body aches, shivering, anxiety, insomnia, glazed eyes, hot and cold flushes

The low-grade heroin used means one can get toxic side effects such as skin diseases, frequent infections and lowered immunity.

Because nyaope is smoked with dagga, the user becomes addicted to dagga as well.

Dagga can have side effects such as hallucinations, paranoia, flashbacks, changes in eating habits, weight loss, and restlessness

Nyaope users usually begin to neglect their school work or their jobs, and may eventually quit work or school altogether.

Users need extra money to pay for the drugs also increases, and this often leads to criminal behavior when they no longer have legal access to money.

Because nyaope is so addictive, addicts may become violent when they are unable to access the drug, and may commit violent crimes even against family members or friends in order to get money.

Monitoring Validation:

Videofied can be installed anywhere there is a cell signal–no need for power cords, phone lines or internet services that construction sites often lack, especially in the early stages. Since construction sites are usually uncontrolled environments, video verification is especially important to eliminate costly false alarms and deliver priority police response when there is an actual crime.

Videofied’s portability means it can be moved around as the project evolves–even if that means being installed months later at a brand new site!

Features:

  • The Outdoor MotionViewer is a battery-powered wireless camera and PIR detector infrared illuminators for true night visionInstant installation in harsh outdoor environments
  • No wires and no powerBattery powered (including panel).
    The entire system operates for years on batteriesCell communication of alarm and video for immediate review and dispatch to 24
  • MotionViewers on a single cell communicator/panelMany arming options: scheduled, remote control, proximity card, cell phone 500 foot effective range between battery-powered MotionViewer and communicator/pane

During the early morning hours of 25 June, we heard a radio alert call and received an alert message on PCPF Response Group about two vehicles and a trailer that were stolen during a farm attack

We immediately responded by collaborating with Tracker in the pursuit to recover the stolen vehicles. After the vehicles were recovered we backtracked movements.

We came past a residence in the Winterveld area. At first, we passed the residence and couldn’t find any trace of the trailer or the stolen items. We turned around at the corner of the street Upon doing so we noticed 2 vehicles with at least 4 people standing outside the house given us more attention than most people, we were busy passing them when we noticed a piece of the trailer.


The only part of trailer that we re noticeable

We immediately made contact with the owner to ask about the description of the trailer. The owner did identify his trailer over the phone and it matched the description of the trailer that we saw. During this time we were busy notifying the owner, the suspects started to make a run for it. The first vehicle pulled out the yard and drove off, when the 2nd vehicle wanted to drive off we blocked his escape route. The suspect climbed out of the vehicle and ran behind the house.

We had no other choice but to wait for back-up because we were outnumbered in an unknown terrain for us. SAPS and Bidvest Protea Coin National Task Team ground units and Airwing responded within minutes of the call

We cautiously approached the house. We entered the premises and searched the property for the suspect. Upon searching for the suspect we noticed all household items in the house. We searched the house and vehicle. In the vehicle, we found a lot of female jewelry. We made contact with the owner so that he can describe all the items that were taken from them. It all matched up.

The Police immediately started with their investigation, no arrests have been made as of yet. All the stolen items were handed back to the owner

The stolen items that were recovered inside the house

Khat or qat (Catha edulisArabic: القات‎ al-qat) is a flowering plant native to the Horn of Africa and the Arabian Peninsula. Khat contains the alkaloid cathinone, a stimulant, which is said to cause excitement, loss of appetite, and euphoria.

Khat in powder form seems to be the most addictive form of the drug. Abuse of this drug is widespread in South Africa and especially in Cape Town. The drug addiction symptoms are much the same as when a person is addicted to other drugs such as heroin or cocaine. Khat is a stimulant drug and it is also an amphetamine

Where does KHAT grow in South-Africa?
Khat is found in woodlands and on rocky outcrops. It is scattered in KwaZulu-Natal and Eastern Cape, mostly from the mist belt, moving inland. It is also found in the Western Cape, Mpumalanga, Swaziland, Mozambique and through to tropical Africa and the Arab countries

Is Khat illegal in South Africa?
In South Africa, Catha edulis is a protected tree. The use of khat is illegal.

  • SAPS drug awareness web-site:
  • https://www.saps.gov.za/alert/drug_awareness.php
  • FACT 1: DIFFERENT DRUGS CAUSE DIFFERENT FEELINGS AND PHYSICAL RESPONSES
    • Drugs such as dagga, heroin, Ecstasy, Mandrax, tik and cocaine are illegal.
    • Further, you could experience a very pleasant response to one drug, yet another drug could have a very frightening reaction B it could even kill you.
    • Like any business, the illicit drug industry is profit-driven. Therefore, drug dealers use a variety of substances to cut drugs.
    • Some of these substances may be more harmful than the drug itself.
    • The drug you are offered tomorrow may look the same as the drug you were offered yesterday, but you can never be certain of what it contains.
    • The only way to be sure that you do not ingest it is to avoid taking drugs in the first place!
    • Drugs can be swallowed (pills), smoked, inhaled or injected.
    • You can never anticipate the effect that drugs will have on you.
    • It is a mistake to think that experience increases your tolerance levels or that nothing will happen to you if you take a drug that you have used before.
    • It is a well-known fact that seasoned drug addicts often die of an overdose.
    • Drug addiction seduces you into wanting more and different and stronger drugs, against your will and the natural tolerance of your body.
    • No matter how good you may feel when using drugs, your body suffers. Drugs are dangerous.
    • If you take drugs, you are at great risk of becoming addicted.

UPPERS
(Cocaine, Ecstasy, Speed, Crack-Cocaine, Tik)

  • Uppers are designed to make you feel great. They make you feel alive, dynamic, and energized.
  • Depending on your personal response to the drug, you could, however, also feel anxious, nervous and paranoid. You could even die.
  • Uppers put a terrible strain on the heart. Long-term use destroys your nerves, takes away your appetite and causes sleeplessness.
  • You will end up taking a downer as your body suffers withdrawal symptoms when the drug wears off.
  • You will feel depressed and, sometimes, suicidal.

DOWNERS (Dagga, Heroin, Mandrax)

  • Downers make you feel relaxed or laid back.
    • Unfortunately, you cannot control just how relaxed you will be.
    • Long-term use of downers causes lethargy and makes it harder for you to do the things you need to do as a functional member of society.
    • Schoolchildren and students who use these drugs find it hard to study or complete assignments, and relationships inevitably suffer.
    • Too much of a powerful downer like heroin, causes the systems of the body to shut down, eventually leading to death.

HALLUCINOGENS (LSD, mescaline)

  • These drugs cause powerful hallucinations or dreams in which your reality is changed.
  • You cannot predict whether the dream will be enjoyable or be a hideous nightmare.
  • A Abad trip@ can haunt you for the rest of your life, with flashbacks occurring at any time.
  • FACT 2: DIFFERENT PEOPLE RESPOND DIFFERENTLY TO THE SAME DRUGS
    • Drugs cause different reactions in different people.
    • Never take a drug based on someone else=s reported experience of using that drug.
    • Never persuade someone else to take a drug based on your own experience of using it.
       
  • FACT 3: THE MORE DRUGS YOU TAKE, THE MORE YOU NEED.
    • The first time you take a drug, you will probably experience an exhilarating high.
    • As your body becomes used to the drug, you will need more and more of it to experience the same intense reaction.
    • This increasing tolerance to a drug is actually a growing addiction.
    • Addiction comes with a big price tag.
    • The more drugs you want, the more money you need to feed the habit.
    • Drugs are expensive and their effect on you makes it unlikely that you will be able to earn enough money to afford them.
    • Some drug addicts turn to crime and other high-risk behaviour.
    • Many are arrested and go to prison.
    • Others turn to prostitution and live tragic and tainted lives, and almost inevitably die young.
    • Some people take drugs for a while and then manage to escape before they become addicts or before irreparable harm is done.
    • It is not weak people who become drug addicts, its drug addicts who become weak people.
    • No addict takes that first drug believing that he or she will become addicted.
    • All addicts start out believing that they could give up drugs any time they wanted to.
    • Every addict is sad proof of how wrong that belief is.
  • FACT 4: LIFE IS TOUGH ENOUGH BUT DRUGS ONLY MAKE IT TOUGHER
    • When you feel that you cannot cope with life’s challenges, you may feel tempted to take a drug to make you feel vibrant and confident, or to change your sense of reality B even if only for a short while.
    • Instant gratification, a sense of peace, a wonderful trip, or a feeling of power B all these things you are promised by those who offer you drugs.
    • Such persons often describe the effects of drugs in glowing terms. But they do not tell you that you cannot control your response to a drug.
    • When you feel that you cannot cope with life=s challenges, you may feel tempted to take a drug to make you feel vibrant and confident, or to change your sense of reality B even if only for a short while.
    • Instant gratification, a sense of peace, a wonderful trip, or a feeling of power B all these things you are promised by those who offer you drugs.
    • Such persons often describe the effects of drugs in glowing terms. But they do not tell you that you cannot control your response to a drug.
    • The more you like a drug, the more you will want it and eventually you will become addicted.
    • When the drug wears off, reality will still be there with all the problems from which you were trying to escape.
    • Uppers make you need downers and a combination of the two can kill you.
    • Drugs let you lose control, which, in turn, makes you lose the ability to do certain things (for instance, to drive your car).
    • However tempting it may be, using drugs to take a break from reality will not make your problems disappear or make life better.
    • If you feel that things are spiraling out of control and you are overwhelmed by problems, seek real help from someone who cares.
    • People who try to sell you drugs are not interested in your well-being.
    • You may already have used drugs and you may be scared of becoming addicted.
    • But remember: No matter how much trouble you think you will be in if you ask for help, you will be in worse trouble if you do not.

Ongeveer 22h03 op 18/06/2020, het GAC ‘n boodskap opgemerk op ‘n plaaslike veiligheidsgroep rakende ‘n aanval in die Honingnestkrans area.

GAC se spanne, in samewerking met verskeie ander veiligheidsspanne, het ongveer om 23h00 op die hoeke van die soutpan pad en Kiewiet straat bymekaar gekom om moontlike roetes van die verdagtes uit te ken en beplanning te doen vir nag wat voorlê. Die beamptes kon die Polisie se blou ligte nog helder sien waar hulle by die eerste aanval afgestaan het.

Koos Snr. het sy seun Koos Jnr. om 23h09 wakker gebel om hom in kennis te stel dat hy aangeval was deur 2 onbekende mans. Koos Jnr. het dadelik opgespring om na sy pa se nood te jaag.

Die sekuriteitsbeamptes het die voertuig met noodligte gesien aankom. Die voertuig het reg voor hulle ingedraai waar hulle gestaan het in Kiewiet straat. Die beamptes het in hul voertuie geklim en in Kiewiet straat afgery. Dit was een van die strate wat hulle ge-identifiseer het as ‘n algehele wegteekplek waar verdagtes hulle voertuie kan wegsteek tydens huisrowe en onraad wat hul pleeg.

Die beamptes het die huis saam met die einaar se seun betree toe hulle net bloed opmerk orals waar hul kyk. Sy seun, Koos Jnr. het dadelik na sy pa uitgeroep “PA, PA, PA?!”

Koos Snr, ‘n 73 jarige bejaarde man, het nie terug geantwoord op die eerste noodroepe van sy seun nie.

“Ek het toe die ergste verwag en myself reg gemaak vir die ergste”

Dit is wat een van die sekuriteits beamptes van GAC gedink het

Die beamptes het die huis deursoek waar hulle Koos Snr. in ‘n beploede toestand gevind het. Die bloed het nog uit sy mond gestroom, so vars was die aanval. Die sekuriteitsoffisiere het dadelik te werk gegaan om die perseel te beveilig en vir Koos Snr. noodsaaklike mediese bystand te bied.

Koos snr se tande wat in sy kamer gevind is

Koos Snr se eerste woorde was “Hulle het my tande uitgeslaan”. Koos Snr. is ‘n baie gelukkige man, vertel die beamtes. Gedurende die aanval het die verdagtes ‘n skoot afgevuur, maar Koos Snr. was gelukkig nie getref nie.

“Koos Snr. jy is ‘n yster! Jy het nie gaan lê toe hulle jou aangeval het nie, jy het terug geveg. Ons is trots op jou!”

Binne enkele minute was die polise op toneel. Hulle was slegs 200m weg soos die kraai vlieg, waar hulle ook by die eerste aanval afgestaan het. Die Polisie het ook bevestig dat hulle ‘n skoot gehoor het, maar kon nie vasstel van waar die skoot gekom het nie.

“Dit wys jou net die arrogansie van die aanvallers. Hulle is nie bang vir die gereg nie. Die stof het nie eers gaan lê van die vorige aanval nie, toe slaan hulle weer toe”

Die verdagtes het gevlug met ‘n televisie toestel en verkseie klein elektroniese items. Koos Snr herstel goed maar is redelik erg getrumatiseerd deur die aanval en wat daar gebeur het.

Die bemptes het minute later na ‘n ‘positiewe’ huisbraak gejaag wat in dieselfde area is. Gelukkkig was dit slegs net ‘n huisbraak en nie ‘n wraaksame aanval nie.
