Alarm Installers need special licence

Security installations – are you licensed? 

Security equipment is equipment designed or adapted to enhance property for protection. This can include alarms, audio or visual recording systems, safes and intrusion detectors.

If you install, repair or maintain this type of equipment in Queensland, then you need to be licensed under the Security Providers Act 1993. If you are licensed as an electrician, cabler or other contractor and perform this type of work, you still require to be licensed as a security equipment installer.

If you install security equipment without a licence, or hire an unlicensed security equipment installer then heavy penalties apply.
