Do they know something we don’t, or are they just paranoid?

Whatever the reason, the world’s super-rich are spending millions on high-tech security and the kind of gadgets most of us thought only existed in James Bond films. A recent article in the Evening Standard examines the phenomenon of elites installing expensive, futuristic security systems and devices into their homes and automobiles.

There is a booming industry catering to paranoid billionaires, with companies developing and selling state-of-the-art security technology that would be the envy of even a 007-style secret agent.

For example, a fellow named Heyrick Bond Gunning (no kidding, that’s his actual name) is the managing director of a security firm called Salamanca Risk Management, which provides “building and contents protection.” The former Grenadier Guards officer and his company are in the business of installing technology such as fingerprint-activated locks and programmable keys for rich clients’ families and household staff.

Bond Gunning describes the £1m security system his firm installed for one of its affluent clients:

Inside and outside we installed 24-hour monitored CCTV cameras that are so hi-tech they can tell the difference between a dog, cat and a person. In the garden there are thermal-imaging cameras that can detect heat sources in the undergrowth. One thing intruders can’t hide is the heat of their bodies.

Should an intruder evade the cameras or ignore the warnings they automatically broadcast, the property itself is protected by bulletproof glass and alarm sensors in all rooms. There is a bullet, gas and bombproof panic or safe room, with its own food and water, medical supplies and communications, and an impregnable supply of fresh air. Just in case the family cannot make it there in time, key rooms are sealed by reinforced shutters.
