Prepping, elitist-style: World's super-rich preparing for societal collapse with high-tech security systems, impenetrable homes and bulletproof everything

Safe rooms

(NaturalNews) 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.

Fortresses of the rich and famous

Another company profiting from fearful elites is FST21, founded by a former Israeli Major-General named Aharon Ze'evi Farkash, who was once the head of the Israeli Military Intelligence Directorate. Farkash's firm specializes in "facial, voice and behavioural recognition technology" that is used to create virtually impenetrable security systems for ultra-rich Londoners.

Companies like these are using amazingly sophisticated technology to give their clients the peace of mind only money can buy. Hidden CCTV cameras that can tell the difference between suspicious and non-suspicious activity and sensors in valuables and artworks that send a signal to lock down a home's doors and windows if someone attempts to steal them are just a couple of examples. These systems, along with other integrated security tech innovations, can turn the homes of those who can afford them into impenetrable fortresses suitable for a super-villain, which some of these people might actually be.

Most of these security devices and systems are based on technologies we've all heard of, albeit in highly advanced forms, but some of the new innovations are seemingly straight out of the realm of science fiction.

DNA-laced tracking mist?

For example, it's now possible to have your home outfitted with a system that sprays a "DNA-laced security mist" on intruders who actually manage to evade all the other high-tech gadgets and escape with jewels, artwork or whatever other valuables they managed to take.

The mist contains "unique DNA" that can be detected by ultraviolet light and enables authorities to track a perpetrator back to his home or secret hideout.

Apocalypse Now?

The elites' efforts to safeguard their homes, however, is not just limited to burglar-proofing. Apparently, many of these spooked billionaires are also afraid of something bigger and are sparing no expense to make their homes bulletproof and bomb-proof as well.

Are they privy to some secret information, or are they simply living in fear of the day the rest of the population finally becomes sick and tired of their greedy existences?
