Security Alarms

Security Alarm Systems - Residential Homes

A security alarm system, or intruder alarm system, has been designed to detect unauthorised entry to your home, shed, dwelling, granny flat etc. Several intruder devices are used to complete an intruder system to ensure your home is protected against unwanted intruders 24/7.

Our alarm systems can be supplied and installed to serve a single burglary protection purpose, right through fire detection and essential access control. In addition, intruder alarms commonly operate as an audible event when a system is armed and can work either as a stand-alone system or integrated to report through to a monitoring control room or a smart-enabled device.

Although intruder alarms have been primarily designed to protect your home when the property is vacant, we can also set these systems up to protect you while at home. For example, you may have a two-storey building and want to arm a particular level when everyone is asleep. On the other hand, you may have a shed or granny flat that you want to arm 24/7. Or you may have a low-set house and wish to have intruder protection against all common areas of your home. Again, our experienced and licensed technicians can ensure we design a system that suits your needs.

Motion Detection - PIR Technology

A motion detector/sensor, or in technical terms, a PIR (Passive Infrared), is an electronic device used mainly inside premises to detect motion. Effectively, PIRs have come a long way over the years, which has helped reduce false activations dramatically. Most motion sensors operate via a pyroelectric sensor/s to detect sudden heat transfer within an environment. Today PIRs are smart enough to notice the difference between small & large heat transfers, such as insects and heat coming in through a window, preventing false alarm activations.

Perimeter Detection - Reed Switch, Door Reeds

Reed switch technology has existed since the early 1900s, and this simple yet innovative technology is still very commonly used today. A reed switch (door contact) is an electrical switch/circuit that changes state when a magnetic field is applied. For example, you would have a magnet installed within the top of the door and the reed switch/circuit installed in the door frame on a standard pedestrian door. Closing the two devices sends a normally closed (N/C) signal to the alarm panel. When the pedestrian door is opened (even as little as 50mm), the switch will change to a normally open (N/O) state, and if the alarm panel is armed, activate an alarm.

Glass Break Detection

Glass break detectors are a fantastic intruder device for your home. Essentially, these intelligent devices detect specific high-pitched sound frequencies when a glass is shattered or cracked to activate an alarm. These devices are essential for an intruder system as criminals don’t always intrude on a property via a door and, in many cases, break a glass window to obtain access.

Smoke Detectors - (Photoelectric Detector)

A smoke detector capable of being connected to a security alarm system effectively operates the same way as a standard one you will often find within a home, with an additional relay alarm contact to provide a signal to an alarm panel. However, these should always be the same as a smoke detector with a hard-wired connection to your home’s 240v meter box supply. These are a fantastic addition to your home to monitor smoke-triggered events 24/7. In addition, should a security-integrated smoke alarm be activated and your alarm system is connected to a back-to-base monitoring station, this alarm event can be programmed to ring the local fire department automatically. Therefore, should the unfortunate of a house fire occur, the chances of action and recovery are significantly improved.

Back To Base Monitoring

24/7 Back to Base monitoring is a service that provides round-the-clock surveillance on your security system, which links to an Australian call centre bureau. The call centre will monitor your security system and act as soon as an incident occurs. It’s a convenient feature that provides the ultimate peace of mind that comes with knowing you are protected by people on call when you aren’t available.

Mobile App Integration

Let’s face it, today, there are more mobile phones than people. We can now do everything at our fingertips, from online banking to emails. So why not be able to control your alarm system through your phone? Many reputable security alarm systems can integrate mobile apps, which is a fantastic addition to your system. These systems will connect to your mobile phone via cellular or your home’s existing internet connection so you can control your alarm system 24/7. Another great feature is that it can instantly send alarm events to your phone, so you can always keep an eye on your home 24/7.

Integrated Access Control - Garage Door Activation, Gate Activation etc

Security alarm systems today also can carry basic access control. From a standard swipe card access reader at your front door to opening your garage door via your mobile phone or even your gate to let a courier driver deliver a parcel. We can make this happen.
