What's excellent about Recon is that we have a good staff base that know the facilities well. They do more: they go the extra mile to improve things around the area, and they have a good rapport with the crew.....

Recon are experts in commercial protection.

The communication between Recon and myself is effective and timely. I really find the weekly reports a great way of keeping informed about the activity around the site. The staff are highly competent and efficient.

An added bonus for us is Recon’s ability to provide trained guards at any time to cover shifts for our own security staff. This has definitely been a time and resource saving benefit.
David, Operations Manager Auckland

The services from Recon were of a very high standard, from management down to the new security guard who would arrive on site, with kit, looking professional ready to go.

Frequently Asked Questions

Forget analogue CCTV – it is all but obsolete now.

24 or 36 months is standard on all products, but life expectancy is much more.

Absolutely – we highly recommend checking out any system prior to purchase to ensure that the product meets your expectations.  Contact us to arrange a demonstration.

This can often be dependent upon your site and specific requirements, although it is fair to say that all of the main brands are reasonably close in operating specs and price. It is important to ensure the system is genuine (NZ is awash with counterfeit/parallel imports) and supplied locally by licensed suppliers such as ourselves. It is sensible to ask for written confirmation of license to sell prior to purchase.

Forget analogue CCTV – it is all but obsolete now.  IP CCTV systems are more reliable and provide superior image clarity, as well as expanded remote management functionality.
