Security in a condo

What is the purpose of employing security guards in a condo?

The goal is to ensure that only residents and authorized visitors are allowed to enter the condo.

Who are the authorized visitors and how are they to be identified? If a visitor said that his name is X and he is visiting Y at unit Z, the security guard can check with Y (by telephone) for confirmation. Or Y could have registered X in the online platform, for the security guard to check.

What should the guard do, if the resident did not register the visitor. A good way is to tell the visitor to call the resident who will in turn call the guard to allow the visitor to have access. The guard can also call the resident, but it may be better to ask the visitor to make the call. The guard has other duties to attend to.

This is not how many condos arrange their access. They ask the visitor to enter their particulars into a form, including mobile number, but the guard does not verify the particulars. It is a useless exercise.

In the case of an apartment block, the visitor has to use the intercom to communicate with the resident, who press a button to open the access door. This is a good arrangement.

What about contractors? They should be required to get the resident to approve their access, similar to any visitor. This means that door to door sales people will not be welcomed.

  • Tremendous:

    JP Morgan has decided the director should just be advised, and he can happily stay on his job. No apologies for his behaviour to the security guards and the management committee of the condo needed. Extremely contrived statement from the JP Morgan spokesman I would say. For the sake of good money, even if it is temporal, a lot of Indians or other nationalities wouldn’t hesitate to puff up their credentials to make quick bucks here even if they have to be repatriated later. Singaporean clients having accounts and partnerships with JP Morgan should immediately realized that the company has a fake gentleman exterior, no matter what it says. If Ramesh has come in through CECA, then our leaders who signed the agreement have to go, not hang on waiting for another PM or MM appointment.

  • HDB flats depreciate to ZERO:

    The security guard should also enforce condo rules on illegal parking by residents and littering, including proper disposal of trash/garbage. These should not be left in common areas of the estate. Some condo residents live like pigs. That is why I moved to landed property.

  • Condo living frustration:

    Some condo MCs (the management committee, leaders, bosses) can be overbearing and frustrating. They think they are little LKYs.

    Late payment – 12% per month, plus late fee.
    Occupants – provide all personal details (sex – M/F, Maybe/Frequent)
    Guests – provide all personal details (any sexual relation to tenant/owner)
    Every renovation – must be MC approved!
    Entering, leaving – must show pass. Must be SAF or ex-SAF MCs.

    The restrictions can be very much more frustrating than living in HDBs.

    the bigger point, and problem, is how come without basic degree and with just a fake postgraduate diploma from fake computer school can become citizen of Singapore.

  • Defending Ramesh:

    The condo security guard should be sacked:
    1. for not using his EQ
    2. for blindly follow the law set by the management

    In Malaysia, the government will lower its road toll fees by 10 cent during festive season.

    So, our talent Ramesh is having guest at his home during festive season.

    If the security guard had any EQ, he should do this:
    1. Greet the guest Happy Diwali.
    2. then proceed to gently remind the guest of the condo rules.
    3. and of course since it is festive season, he could make exception in this joyous festive time.

    Alas, the security guard choose to blindly follow the law. NO EQ AT ALL.

    This is the reason why Singaporeans will never get any good jobs.
    Zero EQ. Just blindly follow the law.

  • Defending Ramesh:

    I applaud JP Morgan action of just advising his executive director only.

    After all, it is not an offence to flaunt one’s wealth.

    And it is not an an offence to be arrogant and snobbish.

    He is living in condo, not HDB that ordinary Singaporeans live in.

    Raffles Institution is making a big mistake to move closer to ordinary Singaporeans aka lesser mortals as MP Charles Chong correctly put it.

    Or smelly people as one investor banker young son correctly put it.

  • Darth Vader:

    I’ve said this before many times, and I’ll say it again: tkl is a vain, arrogant, egotistical narcissistic fool that thinks he’s a genius when everyone else knows he’s a moron. Hey tkl, the issue regarding ramesh emmaralli is not what the security guards’ duties are, it’s about an arrogant bast**d who thinks that being rich means he can do any damned thing he wants and not have to comply with the condominium’s residency rules.

    This foreign piece of shit thinks that just because he paid $1.5 million for the condo means his guests are entitled to free parking. Imagine that: someone who’s allegedly paid $66,000/- a month can’t afford to pay just $10/- for his guest to park. So WHY are you picking on the guards tkl? They’re just doing their jobs and following orders. Oh yeah, that’s right, you and that m**********r defending ramesh are just distracting us from the REAL issue here, namely WHAT do we need garbage like ramesh emmaralli for?! Or for that matter, what do we need a useless good-for-nothing government like the pap who won’t stand up for our people for?! Yes, tharman said this c********r’s actions were excessive. SO WHAT?! This bast**d is rich and can do whatever he wants. If tharman is TRULY sincere about solving this matter, the solution is simplicity itself: REVOKE ramesh emmaralli’s PR status and E-pass, deport him and impose a lifetime ban on him returning here WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT! Do this to a few foreign troublemakers, give maximum publicity to each and every single case and watch the rest learn to behave themselves quickly.

    But of course, this will NEVER happen, because the pap only cares about their own pockets and not the country. Want to solve this problem decisively? DON’T simply deny them a 2/3 majority in parliament; all this does is to stop them changing the constitution willy-nilly. Instead, VOTE THE PAP OUT! EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM! And make sure they ALL LOSE THEIR DEPOSITS! This achieves two things; 1: it sends a clear unmistakable message to the pap that we’ve had it with them supporting foreigners over locals and 2: it sends a very strong unmistakable message to the new non-pap government that we demand that their top priority is to put locals EXCLUDING PRs ahead of ALL foreigners INCLUDING PRs, and that there must be NO MORE free rides for the foreigners. They don’t serve NS in the military, no problem. Make them serve NS washing public toilets, sweeping the roads etc

    So tkl you stupid idiot, are you listening?

    Singapore citizenship is cheapskate toilet paper?

    Your point on fake credentials did not start now. Though it could have started much earlier, the first public sign of things gone wrong came when Nisha from IMDA was exposed with a fake MBA. Somewhat like Frederick Fleet first seeing the Titanic iceberg.

    IMDA response mirrored that from members of a certain party. Otherwise, the supreme members in there would have fired IMDA but they didn’t. Did you remember what IMDA’s response ? “Degree mill MBA has no relevance to the job even though she carried such credentials”. If members of a certain party takes this position, why would JP Morgan bat an eyelid for Ramesh’s credentials for
    THE 66k JOB ? Fake credentials are everywhere now because the iceberg has hit the Titanic and the water is already in the engine rooms. Members of a certain party are pointing at you and me for not giving birth to more locals and so they have to let in the truckloads of foreigners. They are just trying to perk up the numbers so that there are enough levies and taxes to fund their million dollar salaries and surpluses. The latest is to highlight career women being the cause of low fertility when the TFR problem is many times more complex.

    This does not mean we don’t consider experiences and track records but look at MOE. They pride themselves in their educational curriculum while churning out tons of irrelevant students for tomorrow’s world. So what if the credentials are real like our cases ?

    Back to my original point. The whole public media, including Ramesh and JP Morgan hid behind the motherhood excuse that “everyone has said wrong things at some point in our life before” to cover up that a director must be held to much higher standards. And this bully even had guts to lodge a police case. No one is expecting Ramesh to do right all the time, and no one is begrudging a nation contributor if he is one BUT IS HE ONE ?

    It was an unmistakable sign that the recent apology was only made to look sincere because it was only issued after ten of thousands of petitions. In other words, the director IS either a slow learner or the apology was insincere. Forget about getting a live video on Ramesh’s apology because the showtime is not worth our attention. Directly or indirectly, someone could have placated the security guard not to stir up additional matters. Meanwhile, Ramesh gives himself a pat that his 66k paycheck…
