Macado Technologies

Always Alert!


With most intruder detection systems being blind, a staggering 99% of all alarm activations are false.

The result is minimal prevention and a less than 1% arrest rate.

This is a costly and ineffective security solution!

What we do

We are in the business of remote off-site alarm verification and Fight Back. We use technology to reduce our clients' reliance on manned guarding and armed response whilst driving cost down.

By utilising revolutionary Videofied® technology, Macado provides a completely wireless and battery operated security system with very few false alarms, priority Fight Back and high apprehension.

3 steps to reduce business losses

How do we do it

We integrate 3 critical elements into a revolutionary proactive security solution.

Intrusion Tracking

When an alarm is activated a 10 second video clip is transmitted to our monitoring centre for instant review.

Monitoring Centre

Our intervention specialists remotely reviews the video footage to identify any illegal human intrusion on the premises.

Fight Back

On confirmation of a crime in progress, our control room immediately initiates environment specific crime prevention technologies.

"We are the industry leaders in video verification and the use of proactive crime Fight Back solutions.
Give us your most difficult site and Macado Technologies will solve your security challenge."

Thys Le Grange – Managing Director, Macado Technologies

this is not CCTV... but better!

It is a video verification system. Our monitoring centre only receives a 10 second video clip when human movement is detected and initiates quick and focused reaction.
“This is by far the most effective way to detect and manage a security breach which I have seen in all my years in the security industry.”

Thys le Grange, Managing Director - Macado Technologies

Fight back technology

Macado prides itself in the implementation of the latest most advanced technology based solutions in an attempt to proactively fight off intruders before damage can be caused. Each Fight Back solution is carefully designed and integrated to provide an effective industry specific solution.

Some Fight Back solutions:

High speed fog is ejected on verification of intruders or threat. It causes total disorientation and makes it impossible to see. Fog is not dangerous to people and animals and does not leave residuals.



Amplified HORN speakers are strategically placed around premises. The control room then dials into the panel & verbally challenges intruders with personalised messages.


Voice Challenge

Motorised tsunami siren. This siren comes in various sizes, up to 131 db with 2km noise range. This siren will only be activated by the control room once a verified threat has been detected.


Motorised High-Powered Siren

These units get triggered by one of our intervention specialists. 20 Bar pressure distributes gas along high pressure pipes & effectively covers a large outside area. Smaller units are also available for indoor use.


Pepper Spray

Fogger & Motionviewers

"We believe that technology is the future and implementing it
is an effective tactic to deter criminals before they can commit a crime"

What Clients Say About us


Until now people have been protecting their families and assets with ‘blind alarms’ or CCTV. Both of which offer zero detection in the event of a total power outage. Our primary product is the Videofied Eskom-free intruder alarm system complete with video verification and backup support that may be purchased outright on rented.

In addition, our fight-back system allows us to shout directly at the intruders, contain their movements by remotely opening and closing doors or, if necessary, blast them with sirens, lights, fog or pepper gas. This is available to all customers that have risk concerns. Applications of this system are limited by the franchisees imagination, and already include, all commercial, retail and industrial sites, lock-ups, cigarette and liquor stores, petrol stations, cash offices, copper installations and homes.
