Alarm Systems

Housebreaking or burglary is considered the number one crime in South Africa. According to an article published by Stats SA, the number of household crimes increased from 2,1 million in 2015/2016 to 2,3 million in 2019/2020 in South Africa. The Stats SA report states that these break ins, typically occur in June, September, and December.

Over the past few decades, studying the relationship between weather and various types of crime has been fascinating, yet hard to crack. Most research has left researchers with inconsistent and paradoxical results, such as some studies showing no fluctuations in crime in certain seasons and other studies have found an increase in crimes during colder winter or warmer summer months.

A study of weather and crime was conducted in Tshwane and results showed that there is a strong link between temperature and criminal activity. An article published by New24 states that crime against property peaks during winter.

THE BENEFITS OF A SMART ALARM HOME SYSTEM

Alarm systems alert police or security companies in the area of suspicious activity for swift response and immediate alert.

In South Africa, home insurance companies have a great reason to take your location and the level of security devices into consideration when analysing your risk. Insurance companies are likely to give you a better rate for your household insurance if there is less risk with a secure alarm system.

Home security systems also offer homeowners peace of mind, knowing that when they are not home or asleep, their valuables and family are at less risk due to alarm systems being activated.

Modern alarm systems with home automation features also provide the benefit of offering energy savings which makes purchase the system all the better.

Ajax have wide, high end range of indoor and outdoor devices. The best part about these devices is that they are wireless, automated, and simple to program – making all lives easier! They give you the protection you require against not only intrusion but also fires, and floods.

The smart Ajax alarm systems are entirely set up and controlled via an Android or iOS device. In order to control the system, an Ajax Hub control panel is required. To add to list of benefits, a battery backup, power supply, GSM and IP modules are built in for your convenience.

You may be thinking that this is great for a smaller space that can be run off one device. But we have incredible solutions for your bigger houses, office parks, farms and more. A combination of up to 200 wired and wireless devices can be installed to create a multitude of solutions for both indoors and outdoors. These devices also include fire and flood capabilities, making them essential to any large space. The systems can be partitioned into 25 groups that with a tap of a finger, can be independently armed.

With the Ajax alarm system, you are able to add your safe, garden shed, workshop, man cave or trapdoor to a 24-hour group that is completely separate to the normal arming and disarming in the house, therefore remaining unaffected and independent. This feature can be hidden from all other users on the system.

One of our favourite features on the system is the panic button. As a user presses the panic button built into the app, it sends a Geolocation to your inner circle, which is decided by you. It will let your circle know your whereabouts and alert them when you are in need of help.

For those looking for high end devices for other applications such as Campervans, Caravans, Yachts, or even building sites or storage facilities, an interchangeable onboard power supply unit can be installed, which will allow the Ajax to be powered by low or high voltage power sources. Users just need to insert a SIM card into the hub, connect to a power source and you have the security you wish for!

We are all facing enough stress at the moment to have to worry about securing our household and ensuring the safety of our loved ones when we are at home. Your home should be your sanctuary and place of rest.

South Africans for decades have had to deal with a high crime rate and living in fear of what will happen to themselves, their families or their valuables. It is because of this, that we have created a dynamic, high-end system that suits all your needs. We truly understand what South Africans are looking for and how to reduce the worry crime instils in us all.
