Hi, just wondered whether anyone can recommend any alarm installation companies. We had a quote today from RAC, they've quoted approx $1700 installed with a 20% discount. Anyone know if this is their 'max'?

Yes, i'm a little confused here too, if you have an alarm in, can it be just operated by yourselves without a control centre being tipped off if it goes off ? Whats the norm here for type and price....any good ones SOR- Rockingham way ? Daveo

Lockdown security in Mandurah installed mine, 0438787777, a Bosche system. It calls my mobile if the alarm goes off, if I don't answere mine then it calls my husbands mobile. You don't have to have it back to base, I receive discount from my insurer for having a monitered alarm. The installation cost obviously depends on what exactly you have installed, ie how many sensors, and the type of sensors.

We bought a wireless alarm system off t'internet, dead easy to install, and you can take with you when you move (we did). Just under $800. Came with control box, siren, 2 remotes, and 6 internal wireless PIR sensors. Can also be set, programmed and monitored by linking to laptop or PC too for 'fine tuning'. Lots of option accessories available too like windo breakage sensors, extra remotes and PIR's, pressure sensor mats, etc. Basically anything you want to monitor or alarm can be accomodated for and is almost 'plug and play' technology. Can be set to call up to either 8 or 10 (can't remember off hand) phone numbers in succession. No monthly fees to a monitoring company. SGIO were happy to approve it as it is industry certified, and hence gave us discount on our insurance. Can't remember where it came from but will dig out receipt later on. KIEREN
