This is the price for a starter alarm system, without monitoring. The final cost will depend on the chosen equipment and extent of the installation. Installation is normally included. The average cost of installation is R2 000, ranging from R1 000 to R3 000. Home security systems, even the most basic ones, bring you a peace of mind. If needed, you can extend the system later on, adding CCTV, remote monitoring services, etc. For a basic alarm system, expect to pay between R3000 and R5000.
