Why Settle For Anything Less than Expert Installation of Your Security System?


Benefits of Dealing With Melbourne Alarms

3 Reasons To Avoid Using An Unlicensed Installer

1. Unlicensed installers Cannot Purchase Security Equipment From Reputable Suppliers

Major security equipment manufacturers, such as Bosch, Ness and Hills only supply security equipment to security license holders.

Unlicensed installers have to resort to using unknown brands or dodgy ‘grey’ imports. This means you might not be getting what you paid for.

2. Unlicensed installers do not qualify for technical support from the factory

Modern security alarms are complex mini ‘computers’ that have hundreds of programming options. These options are used to customise your system to make sure it fits your needs.  Even the best installers rely on the expert technical support that the alarm manufacturers provide to licensed installers.

 If your installer is unlicensed he can’t access this essential technical support or regular firmware updates. This can leave your system vulnerable to unreliable performance.

3. -Licensed installers are regularly checked by Victoria Police

Licensed security installers must renew their license regularly. This process gives customers the peace-of-mind of knowing that they are dealing with a security professional who is of good character and doesn’t have a police record.

Licensed, Trained and Insured and Experienced

All Melbourne Alarm technicians, installers and office staff hold a current Victorian Security License issued by Victoria Police.

We deal with reputable suppliers or directly with the equipment manufacturers. Our technicians receive regular product technical training.  

Business security

We can help keep your business safe and secure with our comprehensive range of security systems. Our friendly, trained alarm installers can fit alarms, CCTV, access control, and intercoms for businesses of all sizes in Melbourne. Our systems are reliable and easy to use, and they can help you protect your property and your staff.

intruder alarms

Don’t let your business be an easy target for thieves. Intruder alarms can provide the extra security you need to keep your property and assets safe. Our burglar alarm systems are designed to detect and deter intruders, so you can rest easy knowing your business is protected. We install home security systems and commercial alarm systems anywhere in Melbourne

access control

Access Control lets you control who enters your business, so you can focus on your work without interruption. You can also choose to receive alerts when people enter or leave your business, so you always know what’s happening.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Many Motion Sensors Do I Need?

Ideally you don’t want an intruder to take more than 3 steps in your home or business before he’s detected by the alarm system.

With careful planning this can usually be achieved with three sensors in a medium sized home, retail shop or small to medium sized office.

Of course for larger premises or rooms that contain high-value items (such as works of art or a safe) then  additional motion sensors or other types of detectors can be added

Do I Need Two Internal Sirens? Other Systems I've Looked At Only Have One


We know from experience that the more noise the alarm makes inside your premises the better. It lets the intruder know he’s been detected and also stops him from hearing the police or patrolman approaching the premises to investigate. The intruder will leave quicker.


Can I Connect Cameras To The Bosch Alarm System?

No. Bosch do not have an alarm system that fully integrates cameras like the Risco LightSys or Agility 4.

You can add a Hikvision stand-alone camera that will send you an alert on your smart phone if an intruder gets inside your business premises or home. We use these in the office and they do a great job of identifying unauthorised people on your property.

What Is The Downside To Having A Wireless Alarm Instead Of A Hardwired Alarm?


1 – Having to replace batteries in the motion sensors. You only need to do this every 5 years. So if you’re 30 years old today, you’ll only have to change the batteries 3 times because the maximum life of the alarm system is 15 years!

2 – The Bosch system is not fully wireless. Cables still need to be installed for the codepad, inside siren, outside siren and one to your internet modem if you want the app.

3 – The Risco Agility 4 is completely wireless. The Risco Lightsys is also completely wireless. You can also add hardwired codepads, sensors and sirens to the Lightsys to maximise your options.


What Happens If The Mains Power Goes Off?

All our alarm systems have a back-up battery. The system will continue to operate for around 24 hours without mains power connected. If you require a longer back-up time we can provide an Uniterupptable Power Supply(UPS) to extend the time to many days.

Is The App Completley Free?

Hikvision: Yes it is completely free, nothing else to buy. It is an excellent app and also has a built-in panic alarm that alerts other app users if you’re in trouble. It displays your location on their mobile phone using Google Maps. Highly recommended

Bosch 3000: Yes the app is completely free to download and use. You do need to add the Bosch ethernet module to your package though.

Bosch Solution 6000: This app is a subscription-based app. It’s $10.00 per month but you can have several uses on the same account

Risco Agility: $35.00 per year

Risco Lightsys: $35.00 per year.
