Success Stories

Muthaiga Country Club – MCC

The MCC is one of the finest and the oldest social clubs in Nairobi, playing host to the Kenyan elite. In addition to world-class sporting facilities, with colonial architecture and contemporary luxury, it also houses a library with over 20,000 books!

The Challenges: The club was concerned with their outdated and incomplete security systems. They wanted to their security systems to reflect the standards associated with the club. Spread over a vast area, it was faced with a unique challenge of blocking intruders from jumping over the fence, or entering through the plantations that served as a perimeter wall.

Building a concrete wall could have solved this problem, but it was financially unviable.

The Solution: USS offered virtual fencing of the property through its smart surveillance system. Cameras were installed on the perimeter on a highly-secure fiber optics network covering the entire periphery of the club.

The smart feature of ‘Line Cross Detection’ would automatically pop-up in the camera in the control room whenever the virtual line was crossed. Other than the smart features, USS provided entrance control systems such as Fast Folding Gates and Spike Barriers to regulate the entry and exit from the club.

To further enhance the entry and exit points, USS integrated the visitor management system – ‘SecuViz’ with the entrance control system to provide comprehensive control and information about the guests and visitors accessing the club.

We also provided a fully interactive control room where all the integrated systems terminate, with access to the control room officials operating the systems.

This means that, when employee cars approach the barriers, the Ultra High Frequency Reader are able to sense the tag on the car’s windshield and open the barrier. For heavy vehicles, guards have been provided with a remote control to operate the barriers. The barriers have been programmed in such a way that, when the guard presses the button on the remote, it opens both the entry and exit barriers to allow large vehicles to pass through. In the event of small vehicles, the entry boom can be operated to allow the car to get in and the exit barrier can be operated to allow the car to exit.
