Alert Security Systems cc has been in business for more than 40 years and is in fact, the oldest independent alarm installation company in Cape Town.

We started life as Burglar Alarm Centre in 1972, in offices in Claremont on the corner of Campground and Main roads.

In 1975/6, we were involved in the founding of the Cape Town branch of the South African Intruder Detection Services Association (SAIDSA) as well as liaison with the local SAPS offices. House alarm systems at that time were typically just siren alarms and at that time, the local Police were willing to attend to alarm call-outs which were normally reported by a neighbour and there was no necessity for an Armed Response service or even a central Control Room.


Alert Security Systems continues to sell and service security installations, servicing both our own existing alarm installations as well as existing alarm systems installed by other companies.

Not only is a large part of our present business the installation  and  servicing  existing Security systems, but we continue to provide a myriad of new security-related services, some of which include :-

  • Passive and Active Infrared detection systems, Indoor and Outdoor.
  • Perimeter detection
  • Wired and wireless Gate intercom systems – Audio only or audio & Video
  • Access Control and remote locking systems
  • Closed Circuit TV systems with on and off-site monitoring and recording
  • Closed Circuit IP TV systems with remote monitoring via Cell phone 
  • Biometric time recording and access control systems
  • Panic Button systems for the Aged
  • Smoke and fire detection systems
  • Armed Response and Guarding through our affiliated company ADT Security
