We dont have any alarm system i just need a alarm system to get the security out to our plot as this is now the second night in a row that they are braking in on our premises. They also lifted the green box off our meter box that is at the outside of your yard to tri cut the electric cables. It should actually be a combine quote it is actually one large property divided into two. Do not know if this will change anything on the quote.

Good day, I am searching for a security patrol team for our area in Pretoria - Kwaggasrand / West Park. The community wants to get patrol security for crime prevention, visibility, tactical response to incidents and reporting of incidents to SAPS when such response and/or apprehending of suspects occurs. Basically, creating and maintaining a safe environment. The cost is not for 1 single household but rather the community therefore the cost will be a joined monthly effort by the community; the quoted amount once approved will be divided between the households. The idea is to have a single bank account that the residents pay into monthly along with their reference number. I will be the go between and take up any cost inaccuracies with the community. There is buy-in from the community and we’re ready. Please do let me know if this is something you do, you are willing to do, if you have the capacity, and if you have any input on how we can best work on this. Finally, I would like a quotation that I can share with the community which if there’s a consensus, it’ll be approved and we take it from there. Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks,

The property consists of 3 bedroom house and then there is a 2 bedroom granny flat that I would like to have security system installed as well as armed responses. Possibly a system that can be controlled from the telephone to switch certain sections on and off at times. Outside beams maybe x4, Door protection x 9 then inside eyes possible x 4. Maybe you guys can assist with the details. Thanks

I am looking for quotes from multiple armed response companies to decide who to go with. There is an alarm system in the house monitored by blue with the previous owners, but it is old and would probably need to be replaced as well. I'd prefer not to be rashed by salespeople; there is a good chance I won't take calls due to the nature of my job. I need to budget and therefore am looking at comparison quotes. Thank you, Regards,

Looking for a night guard to patrol the garden at our private house, as we have had 2 break in attempts in the last week. We're thinking to have someone patrolling from about 6pm to 6am every day, as we would like the intruder to be caught. I am also interested to see how much it would cost for 24 hour security to patrol the garden. Thank you so much!

I'm a Trustee for our Body Corporate and our AGM will be held soon, before the end of July. I only wish to have a suitable quote to present at the AGM. My thoughts are to have a surveillance pole that covers Summer Place and Glendale remote gates and also cover the front wall, facing Topham road. This would be - 52 / 54 Topham road. Another thought - only surveillance coverage for certain hours? Possibly eg. daily from 10 pm to 4 am. This is just a thought and your input would be much appreciated. With all the overall high price increases - we can only afford to pay what is really necessary for certain hours - although I do realise that the daytime is just as bad. A separate thought:- Our 2 complexes are situated just across from Girls High School - their back entrance/exit into Topham road. Possibly a surveillance pole that would cover the back entrance/exit of the school as well? These separate quotes can be submitted at our AGM and we could then enquire as well if the School would be interested - should the quotes be very reasonable. With thanks,

s is a retail store, I am currently looking to replace my current security, as my staff are more efficient then the security guards we have right now. Hardly see the owner or his operations manager who should be checking the site on a daily basis, give direction to their guards & make sure that all the policies are implemented. In the area, we have high shrinkage, if the guards are not paying attention but my staff are.............Then its time to cut off the dead weight and find a security company who is serious about business as I am.
