To broadcast a SMS with SMSNAYBERS all you have to do is send the message that you wish to send to 33800, The SMS will automatically be broadcast to everyone that is registered in your street or group.
If you are a KMOC and have been connected to other groups you can broadcast a SMS to all the groups that that you are connected to by typing * at the beginning of the SMS. if you do not type * the message will only be sent to the people in your group.
Whenever you are in an emergency situation you must use your panic button, phone the police or radio
your guard huts FIRST!!! They are the ones who are trained to help you in the emergency situation.
Please remember SMS NAYBERS is not a security company with armed response etc.
SMS NAYBERS is a communication system.
The purpose of SMS NAYBERS is that it provides a fast communication tool for you to notify your neighbours after the burglary incident has happened. They can be notified quickly about what has just happened. The police/security guards know what happened BUT the rest of the neighbours in the street, whom it EFFECTS, have no idea what happened, they just saw police vehicles racing past!
Today the police and security companies are urging neighbours to COMMUNICATE with their neighbours as they have identified that awareness and knowing your neighbour helps to fight crime! This is where the SMS NAYBERS SMS system comes in to make your fellow neighbours AWARE.
The police or your security guards are not going to knock on all your neighbours doors in the street to tell them what happened at house number 7! You as the neighbour at house 7, need to make your neighbours aware as soon as possible when something has happened as the police may not have caught the burglars and they may be heading to your neighbours houses next!
You are contributing to the safety of your neighbours by making them aware of how the criminals burgled you, so they can prevent it from happening to themselves.
Most importantly if you have seen someone suspicious and you send a message to your neighbours your neighbours are alerted that "a guy wearing red shirt" looks suspicious. Two minutes later that same man could be knocking on their door and now they will be cautious to let him in and possibly prevent something harmful happening to themselves, had they not been warned quickly.
Your guard hut and security companies are not there to talk to your neighbours for you! That is not their function, they will respond to emergencies THEY CAN'T BE A NEIGHBOUR FOR YOU!

It doesn't matter how far apart you live because your neighbour that lives on the other side of the road
from you is STILL 2 minutes away from you to come help!!!
If something happens to a neighbour on the other end of your road, or if he sees something suspicious it's still important information to know that will affect you on the other side of the road
Even better, this is definitely the system you need to be on then because:
1. SMS NAYBERS is cost effective-your SMS and communication costs will be cut down
2. SMS NAYBERS manages the administration of the entire group for you with change of cell numbers/email etc. As a result no neighbour in the group has to do the administration work to keep the group together and everyone remains in contact.
3. We notify everyone of new members.
4. When sending an SMS on our system you don't have to type your house number or name in your message. It will show up automatically when your neighbours open the message you sent them.
5. It will be faster to get hold of everyone. Phoning a list of people takes longer to get hold of everyone, over a day!
6. You will be made aware of things happening to neighbours in the street next to you that you otherwise would be unaware of.
7. You get access to www.naybers.info for easier communication than your email and a great tool for a leader to use to communicate meetings and show minutes from meetings with their neighbours!
8. With SMS you will get the messages even when you not at home
9. The SMS System is also remote, so you will receive the messages when you on holiday
We will not hand out anyone's personal details to anyone else, not even your neighbour, so that you can
trust us with your personal details to keep them private and to ensure it does not get leaked out to a person claiming to be your
You can however, now that you are in communication, ask your neighbours for their individual cell numbers.
You as a neighbour can show the personal details you want to show up on your profile page on www.NAYBERS.info, for your neighbours to see. This is a great way to connect with your neighbours.
SMS NAYBERS links streets first, if instructed we can put your members in a group to expand your sms broadcast, You can nominate a KMOC to connect different groups in your area to broadcast to even more people !
PLEASE UNDERSTAND: They offer a completely different service! They do not offer what we offer!
Please remember they are a security company and only CRIME related: SOS, alert response, disseminate info to large groups of people and only on crime!
The information they disseminate is delayed, as they stop and analyze your SMS (it's not immediate). You can't communicate directly to the members in your street. They send to a broader, vast area (i.e. the whole of Kloof). They don't offer the benefit of instant communication in your road to your neighbours!
With SMS NAYBERS you can communicate about what you want! You are not going to organise a braai through a security company or tell a security company or crime organisation to tell your neighbours to send a thank you SMS to a neighbour for finding your cat, or to organise a meeting! SMS NAYBERS is personal to YOU and your street to talk about ANYTHING! And we link you directly with your STREET, not suburb!
SMS NAYBERS IS NOT: Security Company, Crime Organisation, Speed Dial Panic Button, Armed Response Unit.
Those are all to be used for Emergencies!
SMS NAYBERS is for your neighbours in your street to communicate messages INTANTLY!
It won't work like that, we know from experience that if you want to make it work you must decide as a
group now that have discussed it. The people at the meeting are the ones who will make the call for the street as they are they
proactive ones who have come. If you don't decide now, others not at the meeting certainly won't join as there is no group to join!
You will never start a group with every single person involved at the start!
You will not get more people at a re-meeting: we know from experience that the same people come. The people who are not at your meeting are not the proactive ones.
Your husband and other neighbours have no idea of what SMS NAYBERS is about as they are not at the meeting, so they shouldn't need to make your mind up.
Once people go home they don't know who is keen and they loose track of what is happening and if anyone is keen. The people concerned are the people sitting around you
Your other neighbours will only join if the proactive people at the meeting decide to go for it and form a group!!
Your group has to start somewhere and it will start with the proactive people which is you!
If you form a group lets say of 5 people. If each person told one neighbour about it your group can double!
The other neighbours are ONLY likely to join if you guys already form a group for them to join.
There are forms on our website that the other neighbours can fill in and send to SMS NAYBERS.
