In New Zealand the unfortunate statistic is that a property is burgled every eight minutes. With such a small population this means your property, without correct security measures, could become a target.
Alarm installation for most homeowners is now common practice. A home that doesn’t have an alarm installed becomes easy pickings for petty thieves and experienced burglars.
Installing a quality security system goes along way to deterring would be burglars. A correctly signposted alarm of good quality will detect an intruder, provide a deafening audible alarm that makes it too uncomfortable to remain in the house, and notify a monitoring company so a security guard can be dispatched.

Alarm Installation Prices
A number of factors can affect the price of an alarm installation, these are:
- The access to the roof space.
- The number of PIR sensors (motion detectors) you’d like installed, and the type of alarm sensors.
- The type of alarm system you want installed.
- The optional extras like remote controls, window contacts and glass break sensors.
If you’re constructing a new home, the best time to get an alarm installation done is when the framing is up and the normal electrical wiring is being done. The whole system won’t obviously be installed, but by pre-wiring you get the advantage of selecting the best possible spots to site your motion detectors, key-pad and control panel. The control panel should be sited in a spot that is not normally seen.
It should be noted that sometimes a normal electrician is not your best choice when having an alarm installed. The reason for this is they may not have the knowledge to site the system in the most beneficial areas, and the system they install may be cheap and nasty. Some electricians will include a cheap alarm as a draw card to get you to give them a wiring contract. However, this can be false economy because cheap systems often go off unnecessarily. This can end up being costly if you’re having a security guard respond to activations and will also annoy and frustrate your neighbours.
Depending on whether you choose a wireless alarm or a hard wired security system, and the layout of your home, an alarm installation takes less than a day. The speed of installation is dictated by the number of sensors and the availability of space for cabling.
