Vehicle security and tracking
Tau Risk Consultants' main role is to prevent crime. This Zambian company, incorporated in 2001, has grown steadily, thanks to the reputation it has built for quality service. It provides physical guards to the public in the industrial, retail, commercial and residential sectors. Guards are monitored through a 24 hour control centre. Tau Risk Consultants also offers a broad range of security services including alarm systems, electronic surveillance products and vehicle tracking, in both Lusaka and Kitwe.

Security systems

Tau Risk Consultants provides GSM and GPRS alarm systems which can be operated by keypad, remote control or even mobile phone (for arming, disarming or setting). Alarm systems can be set to enable either the response reaction vehicle team or police station to be alerted about an intrusion and respond to the alarm.

Tau Risk Consultants has a team of facilitating experts as well as regularly trained staff covering the following aspects of security:

  • GSM interactive alarm systems
  • Electric fences
  • Fire suppression

Integrated monitoring units

Another state of the art product on offer is the electronic guarding unit commonly referred to as an integrated monitoring unit which is a combination of GSM and GPRS alarm system integrated with a closed circuit television system. This comes with added features like fuel monitoring control and battery level monitoring. It can be fully controlled and monitored by cell phone. GSM communicators are used to connect an ordinary alarm system or electric fence to cell phones to enable the client to know of any change of state on their alarm system. These communicators can also be used in devices such as the opening and closing of gates and doorways, and also to control security lights.


Closed Circuit Television surveillance systems are available from Tau Risk, with remote access using GPRS. This enables clients to monitor their property 24 hours a day. Quality infra red cameras are used to achieve good quality images. This application has been implemented for all the Airtel systems, including remote masts. These services are flexibly tailored to meet the needs of different customer requirements.

The Tau Risk control room

All installed alarm systems are monitored in the Tau Risk control room which runs 24 hours a day seven days a week. It is manned by well trained technicians who work throughout the day and night in eight hour shifts. Monitoring of all these sites is achieved by use of integrated software that sends alarm signals to the right reaction vehicles in the relevant zones.
