Choosing the right Alarm System

For nearly 20 years we’ve been supplying and installing the best quality Alarm Systems throughout Geelong and Melbourne and our highly trained security technicians are qualified to advise you on the latest security technologies and alarm equipment.

There are so many different types and brands of alarm systems on the market these days that customers can find it difficult to choose one that will suit their particular requirements. For this reason, we always recommend our free quote service so that you can talk directly to our technician onsite to work out the best alarm system for your property. Taking the time to speak to an expert can also mean huge savings in the long run.

When choosing an alarm system, you need to keep several key factors in mind -

  1. Zones – Zones are the different areas or rooms monitored by an alarm sensor. The size and configuration of your premises will determine the type and number of sensors needed for optimal security.
  2. Hard Wired or Wireless – Most alarm systems are hard wired into a premise and for most applications this is ideal. In some situations, it can be more cost-effective or easier to install wireless alarm systems or even a mixture of both.
  3. Residential or Business – Typically a residential alarm system can include other security measures such as smoke detectors and CCTV cameras that will trigger an alarm and sensors that can allow for pets. Business alarm systems can also be configured with these types of security measures but they may also utilize (CCTV) video monitoring which can capture an incident on a hard drive for later viewing.
  4. Alarm Monitoring – All our alarm systems are enabled for 24hr a day back-to-base monitoring or you can monitor the alarm system yourself. Back-to-base monitoring could also entitle you to a discount on your property insurance.

Being in the security industry for many years we know that a property with an alarm system is much less likely to be burgled. If you would like a free quote for an alarm system that will suit your specific requirements at a great price, contact us on 0417 384 747.
