Private Security personnel in the country stand to benefit from a techno savvy system to ease their operations.
The techno savvy development was launched yesterday in Nairobi by the Private Security Congress and Town Connect Private Security.
For starters, this will be an innovative digital Security solution that will enhance the security of commercial and residential buildings ostensibly to enable more than 700,000 security officers across the country play an integral role in the fight against COVID-19.
The transformational solution, a media application system dubbed Hodi Hodi, enhances the security of residents and tenants by digitizing visitor management process and leverages contactless technology to detect and report potential COVID-19 cases.
“The App has a multifunctional interface that enables the guards to report any COVID-19 suspected cases, a key point of which the escalating number of Coronavirus cases would support screening and contact tracing allows SOS for the quick response and has an E-Intercom and a crime and incident reporting Function” said Private Security Congress Secretary-General, Mr. Delano Kiilu.
Private Security Congress (PSC) draws its membership from private security associations across the country.
Hodi Hodi’s key features include E-Entry of visitors by the touch of a button reducing human touch which helps manage Covid-19 Transmission, Approval and Pre-approval of all visitors into the compound.
The App co-developed by Town Connect with a team from Private Security Congress is customized to member associations’ specific requirements and provides a contactless solution which will enable guards to capture key details about visitors.
The product will allow security guards to be able to collect key details including I.D, facial photos, car plate numbers of every visitor who has access to the residential compound and commercial office spaces.
“In response to COVID-19 and further security threats, Hodi Hodi the digital solution will enable the implementation of a strategic solution that will address the urgent need for security companies to digitize processes and create a tamper-proof pool of evidence needed during incident management and crime reporting as well as manage digital capture and approvals for visitor entry and exit in homes and offices,” said Kiilu.
Security guards will also be able to register incidences and attach pictorial reports in real time, have E – Intercom between guards and residents with number masking.
