Happy New Year from the Watchu team!
The Team here at Watchu are all feeling refreshed and energised after our break and we are all ready to go for 2022. We have some exciting things happening this year and we look forward to sharing them all with you!
Sophisticated… yet simple.

Paradox. Sophisticated… yet simple.
Is your alarm system monitored?
A lot of people travelled and even more stayed at home over the Christmas break. With 2022 looking a lot different to last year, people are heading back to work and spending more time away on the weekends. Unfortunately, this creates a lot of opportunity with houses now unattended during the day and businesses at night…
Now is the time to connect your current alarm system to Monitoring
What is monitoring? When the system detects a break-in, fire, or other emergency, it notifies the security team who then (depending on your request) will notify the correct people. This may be you or a friend, or you can set it up so that a security guard is dispatched to your property.
After the year we just had crime is on the rise having a fully operated monitored alarm creates peace of mind.
Gallagher integrating My Vaccine Pass system into Command Centre
In the interest of providing a solution that is quickly available and easy to deploy, Gallagher is enhancing their Mobile Command Centre with the ability to scan and verify My Vaccine Passes, aiming for an early 2022 release date.
Integration into Mobile Command Centre means that a full upgrade will not be required for most customers running a reasonably recent release of the Gallagher software.
We’ll keep you posted on the progress!
A note from…
Justin Fisher, Director
Welcome back, I hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable Xmas with friends and family, with a renewed energy for what we are hoping is a busy and flowing new year!
We have completed several projects over the past 12 months and booked more to come this year. We were very excited to see our new website launched late last year.
Anyone who has created a new site will know how much work has gone into it by our team, the creative whizzes at HGB Strategic Marketing and Conrad from Cambridge Picture Show. A big thank you to them for all their efforts. It’s looking great. We hope you think so too.
The Watchu team has been growing steadily over the years, and as we head into our 15th year of business, I can’t help but reflect on how lucky we are with the team we have around the country, and our long-standing client base who continue to grow alongside us. In 2021, even with the challenges it bought about, we managed to grow our numbers by 5 team members nationally, growing our Auckland and Christchurch teams in the process, which sets us well for the future, adding resources to these growing centres.
Watchu has an exciting year ahead: a brand new building site in Cambridge we are working through with construction to start later this year, giving us a larger, more modern facility to work from and grow our new products into. We look forward to sharing more details on this with you soon.
Supply issues remain a core issue for many of us still, and rising steel and key commodities prices continually challenge our project management and pricing outcomes, like all of you I look forward to a more settled 2022, and can’t wait to get around visiting your sites, and catching up with you all again soon.
Thanks, and keep enjoying this kiwi summer!
