Security Concern in Condo Area

Post by amb » Tue, 11 Apr 2006 12:18 pm

We've been living in Water Place for nearly a year. It is fantastic area, poll is great. Recently we lost some little stuff (worth nothing but annoying ) in the condo area (BBQ and swimming poll). Security seemed did not take a note about our report.

Please advice about security system in your condo. Should we been blame for being careless?

Although crime is low in Singapore it still exists, just keep an eye on your stuff. You can't blame the security as they are just door men really rather than poolside property babysitters, you can't expect them to know whos stuff belongs to whom. If you made a report they may be more vigilant, but there isn't much they can do unless they catch someone red handed.

Sorry to say you just have to let it go :roll:

I agree with you BG.The security men at our place are stringent in checking with the incoming vehicles(i see them writing down vehicle number plates) and asking visitors which block they are going to.
They would also patrol the area.

Having a management office in the condo is also an added advantage.Easier and reliable if you want to make a report or complain because you know your feedback would not be ignored.

We have a fairly elderly security man at one of our condo gates who is frequently asleep, I quietly let myself out and call out hello when returning cos I don't want to wake him and make him lose face for sleeping on the job! I know it's terrible security but I've never had any troubles with stuff going missing etc... I guess people who live in the condo can be just as dishonest as those outside so it doesn't matter too much.
