30 Jan Is your security system up to date?
Happy 2018! The team here at National Electronic Security hopes you and your loved ones had a fantastic Christmas and a great start to the new year. We’re excited to be back in the office, feeling refreshed and ready to help as many Aussies with their security needs as possible in 2018.
Given it is a brand new year, we thought it would be a great time to ask home and business owners out there this question: are your security systems up to date?
You’d be surprised by just how many people we chat with who don’t realise that their security systems need an update every now and again and some TLC. We’re passionate about working alongside people to understand their specific security needs so that we can tailor a strategy to protect both their loved ones and property/possessions.
In recent years, the major advancement in security has been the Permaconn solution, which replaces PSTN telephone lines (that’s a good thing, as we’ll explain below). We recommend Permaconn to all of our customers because it increases the level of security monitoring enormously as it provides a constant, secure link between a supervised location and the monitoring station.
One of the major speed bumps a lot of home owners and businesses are facing, is the realisation that the National Broadband Network (NBN) has changed the state of play in Australia when it comes to security. Any alarm systems relying on old Telstra phone lines will no longer work once the NBN is installed in the relevant area.
Don’t get caught off-guard. Permaconn is a mobile phone unit, which eliminates the need for a traditional phone line and better still, it saves you a decent amount of money in the long-term. How? You’re no longer paying for the phone line or any calls directly related to your alarm system as Permaconn communicates using only the data side of the mobile network as opposed to making phone calls. Considering commercial premises typically make three calls for alarm purposes daily on average (which cost more if you’re operating a 1300 number), the money adds up over time.
For those of us who love our tech (and who doesn’t these days?), Permaconn also comes with an App that you can download to any Smartphone. From there, you have the power to arm and disarm your back to base alarm system remotely, at the click of a button. Sure, this is an incredibly handy feature but it also means you’re far more likely to use the alarm as needed.
Our team will work with you on the ins and outs of how your system is set-up but either way, whenever your alarm is triggered, you’re armed with peace of mind because you know that the pre-determined plan is being acted upon. Think about the last time you heard a neighbour’s alarm go off nearby – you might not even have noticed it immediately. Even if you did, people aren’t exactly on-call to check out what’s going on in their neighbourhood (plus, there is the safety aspect to consider as well).
When it comes to home and business security, safe is always better than sorry. We’ve been in this business for almost three decades now and in our opinion, nothing beats a back to base alarm system. In terms of businesses, we know how hard it is to build and grow a profitable company and legacy – protecting what you’ve built should be part of your Business Plan. The same can be said for your home. We all know how difficult it is to get onto the property market these days and you and your loved ones deserve to feel safe in your house.
Protect your home with a back to base alarm from just 7* per week. Do the same for your business from $8* a week.
*Please note that every situation is different and your investment will vary depending on your unique needs.
