Our methods technology and experience combine to make sure your business is protected from break-ins, vandalism, and theft -properly
It’s through the experience with THOUSANDS of installations that we know exactly how to deter and prevent intrusions from happening.
And if a thief does get inside your premises our security measures make sure they are detected within 5 steps. That way the alarm is detected quicker to minimize loss and damage.
We have developed a cost-effective way of detecting entry and verifying that an actual intruder has entered your premises so you don’t need to respond unless a break-in is in progress.
Monitor your alarm system yourself using a mobile phone app.
Share the app with colleagues, friends, or associates to create your own ‘security circle’ that can respond if you can’t.
Or you can opt for traditional back-to-base business alarm monitoring and let the professionals take care of responding to signals from your alarm system.
Or have both – it’s completley up to you.
And you don’t need a phone line. No matter what alarm monitoring method you choose, the signals are sent using wireless technology to your smartphone or the alarm monitoring centre.
If you’re not sure which way to go, don’t worry.
Our security experts can help you choose the right option for your situation. And with Melbourne Alarms you’re never locked into anything.
Melbourne Alarms is one of the few ‘Old-School’ security companies still operating in Melbourne. We’ve been in business since 1985
Many so-called security companies are really no more than Marketing companies selling a ‘box’ with no regard for what your unique requirements are.
We have the knowledge, training and expertise to design and install a system that will deter intruders, promptly detect a genuine break-in and alert you immediatly if there’s trouble
Don’t Leave Your Security to Untrained, Unqulaified and Unlicensed Amateurs
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
