1300 Alarms

Yes, you should always only use a licensed installer.

Yes, we have national coverage in regional and city areas the whole way across Australia.


Unlike traditional systems that typically only alerted you if the alarm went off, Alarm.com systems monitor the activity across your home’s sensors 24/7, whether your system is armed or not. This means your system can be useful in emergency and non-emergency events.

All the signals from the security system are sent over Alarm.com’s dedicated secure cellular connection for fast and reliable communication. In the event of an emergency, that signal is instantly sent to a Central Monitoring Station.

Non-emergency alerts are processed by Alarm.com and sent out based on the rules that you define. For example, you may choose to get an alert when the front door opens between 12-2pm so you know the dog walker showed up.

Yes in fact monitoring is a very important part of alarm ownership. We recommend all alarm.com systems are professionally monitored by an ASIAL A1 accredited monitoring centre. 1300Alarms uses Security Alarm Monitoring Service

There are different types of cameras and the 1300Alarms trained technician will run through what you options are. The images can even be sent to the monitoring centre when there is an alarm event.

Yes, start at where you feel comfortable and build from there. Add locks, lights and even Geo services at your pace.


You will need the following to activate your Arlo Smart Home Security system:

A web browser, IE, Edge, Chrome, Firefox, Safari

  • The Arlo app (iOS 7 or higher or Android 4.2 +). To download the mobile app for your smartphone or tablet
  • A high-speed internet connection (minimum 1 Mbps upstreamrecommended)
  • **Note: Arlo may function under the minimum requirements but the functionality and video quality may be negatively impacted. The lower the upstreambandwidth, the greater the possibility of performance issues

With Rules you can tell your Arlo system what to do in certain situations. For example, you can set your Arlo system to record videos when the motion sensor is activated on a specific camera and alert you via email.

For accuracy, geofencing uses a combination of GPS, cellular data, and WiFi data.

In urban environments, where the cell towers and Wi-Fi routers are more dense, geofencing accuracy can reach 100-200 meters. In more rural areas, where cell towers and WiFi routers are sparse, geofencing accuracy can reach several hundred meters.

It’s important to keep maximums and minimums in mind when placing your Arlo Wire-Free cameras:
• Maximum. You can place your Arlo Wire-Free camera a maximum of 300 feet from the base station. In indoor installations, the range might be less if metal objects or thick walls and ceilings are between a camera and the base station.

Note: Check the camera LED on the base station; if it’s blinking amber, the base station detects a low data rate, a sign that a camera is too far from the base station.

  • Minimum. Place your Arlo Wire-Free cameras at least ten feet from the base station, and allow at least6 ½ feet between cameras. Follow these guidelines to prevent Wi-Fi signals between the devices from interfering with each other.
