Registration of visitors to commercial buildings and condominiums

I saw a large sign that requires visitors to register at the security guard before they visit a condominium.

What is the purpose of registering visitors to a condo? Is it to stop terrorists or criminals? To control access? To stop the visitors from using the facilities?

I even hear the ridiculous explanation – for security to call the visitor in case there is a fire in the building.

There is a similar requirement for visitors to register before they enter a commercial building. They also have to give their mobile number.

I find these requirements to be useless, wasting of effort and adding to the cost. In short, they are insane.

I can understand the need for this requirement for a high security area, such as a military base or a top secret research place, but I cannot see the need for this kind of security in a commercial building or a condominium.

If there is a real risk of terrorism or crime, it is better to keep a watchful eye, rather than to register the visitors. Quite likely, the criminals will not give their true identity.

Today, we have security cameras in the entrances and the public areas. Surely, the cameras are already adequate to trace any criminals?

I hope that the people in charge think about the need for this useless process. They should identify the real risks and take suitable measures to deal with them. They should not impose requirements that are troublesome and useless.

    you see hor ?? when a country gets too open-leg policy with all sorts of chat-ba-lang smart alec people and becomes very congested and competitive and all too stressed up, then one can get “suspicious” / edgy over a lot of things like scams, petty crime, offences, etc, etc – then you need all sorts of security e.g cctv, security guards & machines in all sorts of places like mrt, buildings, etc, etc, etc ????

    when you pay for expensive condos, some people will want the entry into their building to be special also lar – orelse it will look like any normal public housing building which now also have cctv surveillance at the lift lobby area ????

  • Slipping IN:

    Sinkies love to sneak into condos to illegally use condo facilities like swimming pools and tennis courts.
    Esp those that are near HDB estates.
    Oldie guards are of not much use.
    Problem is quite rampant.

  • Observer:

    Because big condo projects (with many units) can afford to pay security guards.

    The “boutique” condo projects (less than 30 units) are indeed using CCTV and doing away with security guards.

  • NotMyProblem:

    This is one of the cases that “doing without thinking”. Maybe this was in one of the lessons in the courses our security personnel attended, or maybe the landlords want to show off that the building is for the elites, ivory tower type. It could be just to show the security have something to do!!

    Another case in point is the temperature screening at buildings and malls; Covid 19 is asymptomatic (the task force called this symptom less). If temperature screening could detect the infected, it should not be asymptomatic isn’t it? Just how many infected was detected. In fact those infected went from one mall after another!! Temperature screening not only at the main entrance, but also at retail shops and F & B outlets. That means patrons were screened multiple times within the same building!!

    Similarly, safe entry is done at every shop and outlet within the same building. Trace together ONLY safe entry is to be at the entrance of the venue only, but you can see the QR code still pasted at every entrance of shop and outlet!!

    So is it a case of “monkeys see monkeys do”?

    Condo ? Commercial Building ?
    So its private. The owners or management committee lay down the policies or rules.

  • From CEO to Comedian?:

    Tan Kin Lian, my advice.
    You’re slipping into greater disrepute as days go by.
    Quit while you can before you completely sullied what’s still left of your respectability in public eyes.

    That’s the problem. Those MC chairs imagine themselves as LKYs and impose their own ISD (Imagined Security Details) on their kingdoms. All serfs must obey.
