Is your retail shop protected with fog cannons?
Did you know: If you run a small retail business you may be eligible for a $4,000 subsidy to get a fog cannon installed.
Fog cannons can fill a space with dense fog in seconds, stopping criminals from seeing what’s going on and preventing further damage or theft – see our fog cannons in action below!
Watchu Security can support you by installing fog cannons at your retail shop
Small retail businesses can apply for a subsidy to have fog cannons installed. There are some criteria you need to meet before you can apply for the fog cannon subsidy.
You can apply if you have:
- no more than two outlets, and
- five or fewer paid employees, and
- a street frontage (outlets in indoor malls where security is already provided will not be eligible).
How to apply
If you are an eligible retailer, complete the application form. It takes about 15 minutes.
To start, you need to log into Business Connect using RealMe. If you do not have a RealMe account, you can create one.
To complete the subsidy application form, you will be asked to supply:
- your name and email
- your business name and address
- a declaration of your eligibility for the subsidy
You will also be asked to provide your New Zealand Business Number (NZBN). Most companies are automatically given an NZBN. Sole traders need to sign up for one.

The subsidy is only available through a handful of approved suppliers. Watchu Security are proud to be on this list and look forward to helping you on the journey to securing your retail premises.
