The best way to avoid becoming a target of opportunist thieves is having a professionally installed security alarm system in your home or business. Statistics show it reduces the risk of burglary by an amazing 94%.Image result for pictures of a burglar

Kahu Security has found that the secret to this success is in the strategic positioning of the alarms components, especially the sensors and external sirens. Thieves won’t break into a property if they can clearly see it has a modern external siren and alarm sensors that are visible when looking in from outside, there’s no point as the alarm will be screaming and making phone calls before they have even broken in.

You then are spared the time consuming nuisance of an insurance claim, the thieves having departed for greener pastures without doing “break in” damage at your place.

Opportunist burglaries occur a lot today because its an easy crime.

  • In homes, because the neighbourhoods are empty as everyone is at work, at school or on holiday.
  • In businesses, because everyone is finished for the day or the week, so there are lots of hours when nobody is around.

Todays Alarms Make Life Difficult For Thieves

  • Alarm components are all equipped with an anti tamper device including the cabling. This means that burglars can no longer disable the siren so neighbours don’t hear the alarm alert.
  • Alarms if activated can now instantly make phone calls to you, a friend, a family member or a neighbour or to a patrolled respond monitoring station, which means someone could turn up within minutes.
  • Alarm sensors and detectors with passive infrared and microwave technology are extremely difficult for thieves to beat.

Simple To Use

Today’s alarms are so easy to use and are designed to be used daily with simple alarm and disarm options using a modern touch screen code pads, hand remote controls or even on with a smartphone which is becoming very popular.

Reduce False Alarms

False alarms are becoming a thing of the past with inbuilt trouble diagnostics (which means the alarm will report to you when something needs attention without sounding the sirens unexpectedly) and the vastly more stable sensors able to cater pets, extreme temperatures and drafts.


There is a great selection of alarm monitoring options for home alarms. From an automatic call to your mobile which you can then deal with, to patrolled response alarm monitoring from the expert Kahu Security team.

Not All Alarms Are Equal

While alarms can look very similar, their ability to cope with a range of environmental conditions can vary dramatically. Most false alarm activations are caused by alarm sensors not coping with droughts, hot rooms, reflected sunlight etc. The more intelligent sensors can cope with a raft of these typical conditions and can even distinguish pets from intruders. This all means you can stop being disrupted by false alarms!
