What is Monitoring?
When your alarm goes off, we’ll instantly receive the alarm signals and give you a call to let you know what is going on at your home or business. Our monitoring centre will let you know which detectors have gone off, how many times they’ve gone off, and if they believe anyone is still inside the property. Even if we don’t make contact, we will be able to dispatch the relevant authorities on your behalf (subject to state regulations) or arrange for private security guards to attend to your home.
The choice to use monitoring for families and businesses around Australia is the peace of mind knowing that someone is looking out for you 24/7, 365 days a year.
How is Wireless Monitoring Different?
Traditionally alarm signals were sent down your phone line. In today’s world, with the power of GPRS mobile data network, wireless monitoring (or GPRS monitoring) is now the standard which we connect to an existing alarm system. Any alarm system can be upgraded to wireless monitoring, simply by installing a wireless monitoring module to any existing system.
5 Key Benefits

As this system has no wires, your monitoring service cannot be terminated by simply cutting your phone line. This enhances your overall security because your monitoring service can’t be tampered with by intruders.
2. Cheaper (or No) Phone Bills
With wireless monitoring your monthly investment includes all communication costs. This means you never have to pay more than your fixed monitoring rate, by not having a phone bill impacted by your alarm’s level of activity.
3. Panic Buttons for Emergency Services
A monitoring service also enables your keypad or remote control panic buttons for the police, fire, and ambulance. So if you’re in a situation when you’re not able to access a phone or spend time explaining yourself, monitoring will save you vital minutes in an emergency situation.
4. Free SMS Reports
With the wireless monitoring service, you can track who comes in and leaves your premise through text message reporting. For example, you can keep track of cleaners who come and go by receiving a text message alert on your smartphone when they turn the alarm system off and on. We even have parents who track if their kids are getting home from school on time, with these SMS reports.
