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.

The business is wholly New Zealand owned and operated. Originally founded in Auckland we now have operations in other New Zealand regions including Waikato, Taranaki, Wellington and the South Island as required.

Some of New Zealand’s largest businesses trust Matrix Security to safeguard their assets, and their people.

Matrix Security services are fully integrated and specifically tailored for each client. As well as security guards and mobile patrols, they 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. Their 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.

With a strong reputation for service innovation and excellence, Matrix Security pioneered home security policing patrols in Auckland’s affluent suburbs, and set the benchmark for fast, effective response to alarm activations, security operations accreditation and health and safety practices.
