What Is A Security System?

One question we always get asked is what’s the difference between a security system and an alarm or CCTV cameras.  The answer is nothing.  A security system can be an alarm, it can be CCTV cameras, or it can be a combination of both.  Either way, it’s there to help you secure your home and feel safe.

FAQ’s Security Systems


What Makes A Good Security System?

When we design a security system, we’ll design it around your specific concerns and requirements.  However, the best security systems will use a combination of CCTV cameras and an alarm system.  This enables you to access live and recorded footage along receive real-time alerts directly to your mobile phone or from our police approved monitoring station (based here in Adelaide).


Why use a Licensed Security Agent?

A licensed security agent has been trained in security and knows and understands how to design a security system based on your specific requirements.  The equipment they use is recognised within the industry as being safe and reliable.  Here at Papworth Security, we will always recommend the most up to date technology to help future proof your security system.


Can you install CCTV cameras that I have purchased from my local electrical store?

Papworth Security only uses tried and tested products that are built to give you the best results, so we only install Hikvison cameras or Ness / Hills security alarms.


Why use Hikvision rather than store brought cameras?

Camera equipment bought from department stores, electrical stores and on eBay is usually meant for D.I.Y installation.  The quality is nowhere near that of professional equipment and as a result, performance can suffer.  Most shop-purchased products only have a one-year warranty and provide little if any technical support or back-up if you have problems with your system.  All our Hikvision security cameras are backed by a 3-year warranty and full technical support along with a one-year installation warranty.
