Smart security systems for home and business

Protection Pacific Security is a full-service security company that is celebrating 25 years operating in Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula.  Protection Pacific specialises in commercial and residential security systems, alarm monitoring and CCTV systems and the integration of your business or home to your smart phone or device.

With the NBN rolling out over the Mornington Peninsula it is timely to ask advice as to how your existing alarm or security system may be affected. The disruption of existing cabling and/or cabling configurations in your home or business can prevent your back-to-base alarm working correctly. The eventual removal of copper to the premises and other facts such as the lack of appropriate back-up power to the home via the NBN means that many systems will no longer comply with the Australian Standards.

Many customers are finding that bypassing the NBN for their security services is a more reliable solution. GPRS monitoring allows your existing alarm to be connected to the monitoring centre independent of the NBN. The system derives back-up power capability from your alarm and can be controlled from anywhere in the world from your smart phone or device.
Up to 10 users can install the app on their devices, and upgrade features can include panic alarms that notify the group and give the location of the user on a map. Alarm activity and information regarding who has turned the alarm on or off and any alarm conditions can also be “pushed” to your phone.

For further information, phone 1300 793 911.

Connecting through gifting
by Kate Sears

Tui and Nyree are two best friends who loved travelling the world and connecting with people, all the while having fun and searching for the meaning of life.  They believe gifting is all about connecting with others, and in turn this connection brings meaning and purpose to everyone’s lives. 

“Receiving a gift that has meaning to us makes us feel that we are important to the giver and that we belong,” Tui says.

And so their mission to help people connect through meaningful giftware was born. 

 Koh Living’s vision is to create a safer, more caring and more connected world for generations to come. Tui and Nyree aim to achieve this by inspiring 5000 people every day worldwide to connect through gifting via their social media pages. That's almost two million moments every year where people have been inspired to be grateful, loving and generous.
