Attikis is a new Australian technology startup just launched in the last month that is offering a radically different Home Monitoring service. It works by making use of existing security alarm systems already installed in approx. 2 million Australian homes. Traditional alarm monitoring services cost over $300 pa and require lock-in contracts, partly explaining the low adoption of these services. Attikis changes this by offering a prepaid service that costs just $30 to monitor most homes or businesses for a whole year (subject to use and based on past experience).
The concept was created after our Founder moved into a ground floor, rear flat that had been broken into before. It had an expensive alarm system already installed and there was no affordable way to make use of it. The idea developed from here to allow others to more productively use existing alarm systems.
