Electric fencing accessories


In South Africa the Electric Machinery Regulations (Government Notice No. R250 (Government Gazette 34154) of 25 March 2011, published in terms of the Occupational Health and Safety Act, 1993 (Act No. 85 of 1993) (OHS Act), which is administered by the Chief Inspector of Occupational Health and Safety of the Department of Labour, requires that all electric fence installations (non-lethal), temporary or permanent, comply with the requirements of SANS 10222-3. It also requires that an accredited person, defined as an electric fence installer, issues an Electric Fence Certificate for an electric fence installation (non-lethal), and that the certificate be in the form of the Electric Fence Certificate published in the Electrical Machinery Regulations or in the form published in this standard as an example.

This standard does not apply to systems with voltages below 50 V. d.c. or 35 V a.c. or, to the construction and safety of the equipment associated appliances and accessories.

Sentian Integration System

Sentian – An innovative integration system that integrates your alarm, CCTV, gate & home automation into one easy to use app. This system bolts onto your existing gate, garage, CCTV & alarm systems.

Sentian is a ‘brain’ for your home or business security. It is a smart integration hub which connects your existing alarm, CCTV and automation to each other, the internet and your smart phone. This means that when your alarm is triggered Sentian will send you a 12 second video directly to your phone, actually showing you what triggered your alarm. It also allows you to respond to an alarm event – you can push the panic button to escalate the call to armed response, open the gate to allow them to enter, turn on the outside lights, and watch them walk around your property. All from your bedroom, or from the other side of the world.

Just some of the Sentian features:

  • Arm, disarm or panic your alarm.
  • Watch live video from your CCTV cameras.
  • Open your garage/ gate for armed response.
  • Search and review archive video by event.
  • Discover and bypass troublesome sensors.
  • Control your lights, plugs or geyser.
  • Get notified when the kids get home, staff arrive, or someone enters a restricted area.
  • Control multiple Sentian powered properties with one app.
  • Simply and easily share access to your home without handing out your alarm code or gate remotes.
