"I am one of Safe & Secures first customers, our family home was then located in Killara and our family was quite young. Safe & Secure has since provided me with security systems in numerous premises both residential and commercial.

As our family has grown Safe & Secure is providing security for their family homes.

I was delighted when Peter asked if I would provide this testimonial letter, Peter’s company; Safe & Secure has always acted professionally and efficiently and I will continue recommend their services."

Safe and Secure has a large range of local alarm systems. Local alarms are the systems installed in the home, typically incorporating motion or infrared detectors, mechanical reed switches, sirens and flashing lights. These alarms are designed to act as deterrents, and are very effective.

  • Motion and infrared detectors
  • Pet immune detectors
  • Graphic LCD keypads
  • Door and Window Switches
  • Alarm sirens
  • Blue strobe lights
  • Warning signs

Important- Please note: There’s a distinction between a "local alarm system" and a "monitored alarm system". Monitored alarms are directly linked to our control room, and include a range of responses to the alarms directed by the control room operators. Safe & Secure provides both monitored and local security alarm systems. If you’re looking for a monitored service, see Monitored alarms (insert link) for a full description of these services.

Local alarm components:

Motion detectors

Motion Infrared detectors are designed to cover roof and glass entry into the home. This is called “volume protection”, covering large areas of the home. They are also available for outdoor protection and can be installed in strategic areas like an enclosed yard which needs to be protected. Pet immune detectors are also available if you leave a pet in the house.

Graphic LCD keypads

These keypads are the controls points for your security system. They allow you to manage alarms, turn the system off and on, and also monitor the system to make sure it’s functioning correctly. The keypads also provide information relating to alarm activations. provide a facility to activate emergency duress alarms.

Door and Window Switches

More than half of all burglars literally come in through a door. If that’s not possible, the windows are the next choice. Door and window switches secure these access points and connect to an alarm system. This is called a “perimeter” system. When closed, the door or window circuit is secure. When opened, the circuit is broken and an alarm activates.

Alarm sirens

Local alarms are designed to be loud attracting attention. It’s an effective way of scaring off burglars, and getting responses from neighbors. Intruders generaly panic assuming someone is already phoning the police. These alarms a very effective deterrent.

Safe & Secure Systems

Safe & Secure has many different options for home security. These alarms can be a combination of perimeter & motion; we can customize your home security system to suit the needs and peace of mind.
