Home Security Alarms

Though crime rates in New Zealand are still low by international standards, protecting your home should never be taken lightly. While guard dogs are one way to fend off intruders, installing a home security alarm system can give you peace of mind that your property and valuables are protected at all times.

Potter Electrical can help you find a system that works for you. With optional remote access, you can keep an eye on your property from anywhere in the world using your smartphone or tablet. We have a range of home security systems in stock for residential and small commercial premises. All our alarm systems are top-of-the-line quality, designed and manufactured in New Zealand by EliteControl and are covered under warranty for 5 years should you experience any issues.


The ESL-2 series is equipped with a range of features and functions to give you full control over the security of your home or office. The kit includes a control panel for up to 16 hardwired and/or wireless sensors, an LCD vertical keyboard with time and temperature, a backup battery, internal and external sirens, a built-in dialler for landline monitoring and a pet friendly quad sensor. Other sensors include broken glass, indoor and outdoor, smoke detectors, window and heat. The EliteControl system also allows you to record up to 255 events and it will store security and control functions for recall at any time.

Create up to 8 programmes to control garage doors, gates, internal and external lighting and heating systems or make use of the two-alarm function for multiple tenancies under one roof. Various different time zones further enable you to automatically turn appliances or sensors on and off at a specified time all year round. The ESL-2 kit also supports up to 80 keyring remote buttons to control as well as arm or disarm the alarm system and up to 100 swipe tags and keypad codes for basic arm, disarm and control functions.


Adding an additional remote kit or plug-in network module for a smartphone app, you can use your Apple or Android device to remotely access the security system history, your virtual keypad and arm or disarm the alarm. The app allows you to control up to 8 appliances and multiple home security systems all in one.

It will also send push notifications straight to your phone should someone try to enter your property including a message if the panic, fire or tamper alarms have been set off. This feature is available whether the app is open or not, so you can rest assured that you will never come home to unwanted surprises.


To enhance the functionality of your home security alarm, we recommend installing an IP-Module at the same time. This smart TCP/IP alarm interface converts Contact-ID signals for older analogue phones into new internet reporting protocols and smartphone push notifications. It includes a backup battery and is programmed using a built-in web browser.

The module is compatible with the EliteControl smartphone app and supports email monitoring as well as notifying you in case of a mains failure, battery failure, when certain zones within your property are being activated or the fire and panic alarm are being set off.
