So, you think life would become easy if you get rich with millions of dollars one day? Of course, it indeed is a very common thought, but what majority of people tend to ignore is the fact that money also brings in a lot of problems.
For higher bank balances, assets and net worth, one has to be more responsible in protecting their wealth. Almost all billionaires recognize this as their top priority and they invest heavily on security. In fact, in many cases, rich people go to every extent all the time for the sake of developing a security system that should become impossible to beat.
Starting off with the top-notch security systems, the most commonly observed protection tactic includes bodyguards. The 6’5 beast like creatures move in circles risk their own lives to make sure that their employer is safe by all means. The quantity of them around any billionaire varies from person to person, but a lot of these bodyguards are hired on a contractual basis from a security firm for 365 days a year. Normally they are paid a massive six-figure salary but sometimes they are also hired for special occasions for which they also get paid around $1000 by the end of the day.
But that doesn’t stop here as some security firms have also introduced female bodyguards or undercover nannies who don’t stay too close but promises to keep an eye around you all the time.
As we all know billionaires have this habit of trusting no one around them, so surveillance companies then offer extra protection to keep an eye on all of the personal bodyguards and their loved ones as well. It is an important component of security for the mega-rich as it ensures that bodyguards are doing their job right and there is no risk around.
Billionaires often use the surveillance services for the protection of their family members as well in the most literal way possible. If anyone around their kids or wife look suspicious to the team, they take quick actions or convey the new to the concerned employee if the matter is too personal.
An average investigator gets paid $80 for an hour but it also goes above $100 for more well-known surveillance companies.
While this all was not enough, billionaires now trust technology more than humans. They now hire companies to develop the most advanced biometric security systems in their houses around the world. These systems utilize biological features that can’t be copied or impersonated (just like the way you see in your favorite Hollywood films)
It gets even more extreme with the inclusion of bullet and bomb proof safety bunkers that are hidden underground or in parts of the house which are not easy to guess. The rich can now even survive a nuclear attack as these bunkers cover you from every attack except for asteroids. They are equipped with an ample amount of resources to make life easy during the time of such emergencies.
Most of the bunkers are built after the construction is being done but more advanced ones are installed prior to laying down the foundation of a home. There are only a few specialists out there who can make bunkers of any sort but they also cost millions of dollars. On the other hand secret passageways to escape threats, are also expensive ranging up to thousands.
A company called SAFE has taken personal security systems on new levels as it can now hide 15 shotgun shelves in each wall around the house along with burglar blaster. These types of equipment can be set on target anytime from your phones, iPad or laptops even if you are miles away from the location.
The security of billionaires continues in different styles when they are on vacations. They can choose top quality pirates, pilots, military-style technology, anti-missile defense systems, or trained personals to fight off against attackers of any sort when they are traveling by water or air. Together, a standard security service for one trip alone can cost them half a million.
That being said, if you are happy with what you have, stick to a more peaceful life then.
