A lot of people said they appreciated/enjoyed my newsletter this month, weird I know, so I have posted a link here.

Police make quick arrests for rural and residential burglaries


21 February, 2019 17:38

Out quoting today around Okato. What a great effort by some local farmers and the NZ FEDS, take a bow. I almost want to rejoin when I hear stories like that!


Last Friday we installed several cameras in the Opunake CBD for the Opunake and District Business Association.

Sinclair Electrical did the wiring allowing Graham Lynch Security to install and commission the cameras at no charge.

The cameras themselves were paid for by a TSB grant and the ODBA.

I am yet to train users to assist Police. I hope to be able to expand the system in conjunction with ODBA.

I also hope to repeat the idea at Patea, Manaia, and Kaponga and so on.

Graham Lynch.

End of 2018 Nears

2018 is drawing to an end.  Thanks to all who have supported our business.  As always the installs/jobs we have done have been greatly satisfying, and I list some examples:

  • Gate access control for a Hawera Business owner –  an existing gate where the keypads were starting to malfunction.  He was advised by one firm that the repair was in the vicinity of $5000-$7000.  A new access control system was added for approx $1200.
  • Cameras installed for farmer whose milk contamination cost him an $8000 fine.  The great thing with this install is that now the farmer can see the entire milking shed from his house whereas previously a large dense bush area prevented this.
  • Simple alarm replacement for a Hawera resident who was advised by one firm that his alarm needed to be replaced at approx $1400+gst.  A new board was installed and the alarm made functional again for $400+gst.
  • Service Station CCTV project, one firm quoted approx $7K.  We installed virtually the same equipment plus one additional camera for approx $4k.

With Graham Lynch Security, I will always seek to find the best solution for your needs, not what is best for my account balance.

I wish everyone a safe and prosperous new year.  I look forward to being of service to you in 2019.



Police Crime Stats For Your Area

An interesting tool.  Go to….


and you can select your area and dates to see how much crime was reported.  Please note though much crime is not reported to Police so the real figure will be higher.  I even know serving Police members who have thrown their hands up in the air when trying to report matters from home.  Try and report matters to the Police even though it can be frustrating, it does help for proportioning resources and perhaps highlight a real problem area.

Keypads Beeping

I hope through 2019 to add some blogs here to show people how to silence their keypad until we can get there and service the alarm.
