At SMS Security we pride ourselves on the quality of our work and fair pricing but often find ourselves competing against offers that simply seem too good to be true and almost always are.

Checkout the photos on this post of a local installation completed by our competitors – notice the cameras look over into the neighbours yard?

This is a direct breach of the law and regulations governing the industry which dictate cameras can not be installed where they directly observe a neighbours property and breach their privacy. The home owner in this case can be sued and ordered to relocate the cameras at their own expense (a simple call from the neighbour to the police will do the trick).

Of great concern is the security company completing this work had no idea their installation breached the law until we informed them. Additionally they are not even WA Police Licensed which means they have not passed security checks and that makes any work they do illegal (with the installers up for a $10,000 fine per instance). If they don’t know the rules of the Security Industry, or have not even bothered to study and achieve the required licenses one has to ask what else they don’t know or get wrong with their work?

Sometimes you get what you pay for.
