What's the main objective for any home security system?
For starters, it's should keep you and your family safe, right?
Seems reasonable. So why then do so many Darwin homeowners only find out their home security is ineffectual once it's too late?
Because the Australian security industry has been asleep at the wheel... for far too long.
Plagued with unlicensed and untrained installers, it's easy to be tricked into paying for something that's effectively useless.
Calamity is A Graded by ASIAL (Australian Security Industry Association) and Five Diamond Certified by the CSAA.
Now that's something no other Australian security provider can say.
All our staff are trained and licensed. Our monitoring centre has been, and is routinely, independently assessed and graded. And our three key services - installation, monitoring and maintenance - can be completely integrated to give you the best home security system Australia has to offer.
Calamity's home security systems are divided into three core services. By the power of these three services combined you get unparalleled personal, property and insurance protection.
Home Security System Installation: Why spend your money on an unlicensed security installer? It could cost you your insurance claim. Ultimately, it could cost you your safety. Calamity is Australia's only 5-Diamond graded security firm. Our installers are licensed professionals independently assessed and reviewed. Because every Calamity home security system is installed by an expert technician, you get a camera and alarm system tailor designed for your home - less false alarms, stronger security.
Home Security System Maintenance: Routine testing and regular on site maintenance: that's how we safeguard your home security. It's also how we protect your security investment. Whether it's a camera with a dirty lens or a damaged cable, your security is only as strong as its weakest link. Through routine upkeep we make sure your security is always at its strongest - while helping to protect you insurance claims, too!
Home Security Alarm Monitoring: "A vision of monitoring" - that's how the experts over at Security Electronics and Networks Magazine described our alarm monitoring centre. A1 Graded by ASIAL and 5-Diamond Certified by the CSAA we're proud to say we've got the best monitoring centre in the country. So what does that mean for you? Ultimately, less false alarms and faster emergency action. Our Calamity-trained monitoring operators assess all security signals and respond appropriately. So you don't end up paying for unnecessary call out fees. And you're never relying on your neighbours to call the police when your alarm goes off.
Imagine the software industry never updating it's technology. Consumers would be in an uproar, right? Rightly so. Yet, despite there being better and cheaper options, security installers are still flocking the same old out-of-date systems.
Connecting your home alarm to traditional PSTN (Public Switch Telephone Network) lines is the biggest security blunder.
Firstly, they're easily cut. It doesn't take a master spy; just a guy with a pair of scissors and enough light to spot that white box on the external wall of your house - aka your Network Interface Device.
Secondly, though no less astonishing, is the fact that phone line alarms still require phone calls to be logged every time you arm or disarm your alarm. That can be 10-20 calls a day at up to 40 cents each!
Never mind the fact that many homeowners don't even have a connected phone line anymore!
Why waste money on obsolete technology? With Calamity's IP Monitoring there are no call charges. No line rental. And no phone line needed.
Instead, we connect your alarm system to our A graded monitoring centre via your internet connection and several mobile networks. Data is logged for FREE and your home is constantly connected - even if phone lines are sabotaged or failed.
