FEEL SAFER: Kiosk with Vingtor-Stentofon Intercom directly linked to Johor police HQ

Security at Iskandar, Malaysia has been given a boost with the installation of an interactive kiosk in the heart of the city centre. Vingtor-Stentofon Intercom technology is a central part of this installation.

This is the second kiosk of its kind in the country, the first being in Penang. Installed at the Jalan Wong Ah Fook-Jalan Station junction, the kiosk is meant for the public to call the police in case of an emergency. Johor Baru City Council mayor Burhan Amin said the kiosk was part of the “safe city” programmes aimed at enhancing the city centre’s image and security, New Straits Time reports.

The project complements existing security measures, such as closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras, lamp posts, safety signboards, safety mirrors, road bumpers and pedestrian paths. In case of an emergency, one only has to stand close to the kiosk, press a button and speak directly into its Vingtor-Stentofon intercom.
