LEADERS IN HOME AND COMMERCIAL SECURITY
Matrix Security Group Limited, established in 1993, has a decades-long legacy as a credible and professional security company to both commercial and residential clients. Matrix Security pioneered home security policing patrols in Auckland’s affluent suburbs, setting the benchmark for fast and effective response to alarm activations.
The business is wholly New Zealand owned and operated. Originally founded in Auckland (where we have bases in Penrose, Takapuna, Avondale and East Tamaki), we now have operations in other New Zealand regions including Waikato, Taranaki, Wellington and the South Island as required.
Matrix Security services are fully integrated and specifically tailored for each client. As well as security guards and mobile patrols, we install, monitor and service a range of premium security alarm systems that work in conjunction with the latest technologies in mobile apps and IP technology.
Our call centre, based in Penrose, Auckland, is manned 24 hours a day to provide alarm monitoring, dispatching and customer services; ensuring prompt response to alarm activations, security incidents and customer enquiries.
At Matrix Security we recognise our employees are the company’s greatest asset. We are committed to providing every employee with a fair, safe and technologically advanced work environment – one in which they can succeed and grow both professionally and personally.
We treat all employees with respect and appreciation, and we work to cultivate professionalism and responsibility. By leveraging the latest mobile and security technologies, we are better able to take responsibility for the safety of our security guards whilst they are on patrol.
We are currently working towards becoming an accredited Living Wage
