Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ about our range of business security solutions

Many of our clients with businesses in the Hibiscus Coast, Orewa, Silverdale or Rodney areas of Auckland, have invested in security alarms and cameras to help protect their businesses from damage and burglary. 

The security cameras and alarm systems we install are easy to use, high specification and cost effective. Read on for advice about the best security precautions you can take and how affordable it is to protect your home and valuables with Coast Cameras and Alarms. 

How can I keep my business safe while I'm away?

Investing in a monitored security alarm or repairing an existing security camera that needs a bit of a tune up can give you peace of mind. Call us to discuss your concerns and we can assess your current setup, and advise what can be done to keep your property safe.

Do I really need a security system?

There are many benefits to having a security alarm system set up, particularly if you are a business owner with stock on site. Statistically business break-ins are more common in the evenings after hours when you are not around. 

Security systems help prevent the theft of valuable items and avoid you having to go through the aftermath of a break-in which can be a very emotional and stressful time. 

There are different options for security systems and alarms including HD security cameras and monitored alarm systems that can be controlled remotely by smartphone apps and have alarm monitoring functionality.  

Some insurance companies offer discounts on their business polices if you have security cameras and alarms systems in place so it's definitely worth looking into. 

What is 'automation' and how does it work?

Automation lets you control things like the lights, heating, cooling and appliances from a mobile device from anywhere in the world. 

You can also use automation to access your security cameras and alarms and do things like set your alarm to come on for a specific time on a certain day every week and access security camera footage from your smartphone or laptop. 

How much does a security camera cost?

There are many different types of security cameras and alarms on the market, some with more specialist features and add on options. At Coast Cameras and Alarms we have a variety of security systems available to suit any budget. 

Our business focused CCTV security alarm set up can include installation and on going support and advice with the option of remote monitoring and access systems.

What are the features to look for in a security system?

A security system usually includes:

  1. a control panel which is the computer that arms and disarms the security systems
  2. door and window sensors
  3. motion sensors
  4. surveillance cameras

Coast Cameras and Alarms are happy to come out and visit your home or business anywhere in the North Auckland area including Silverdale, Orewa and Rodney, to give you advice on the best security system for your needs and budget.

What is alarm monitoring and how does it work?

Alarm monitoring means that if your alarm is activated a notification will automatically be sent to you, a nominated staff member and/ or the emergency services.

Alarm monitoring packages can also include a log of all the times when your alarm is activated and deactivated, through the night checks and tests of the alarm system and panic alarm options.

All alarms bought from Coast Cameras and Alarms have the option to include alarm monitoring provided by our partner company Monitor New Zealand.
