5 Best Alarm System Vendors in Johannesburg

Product and brand diversity: The more choices a store offers for the best alarm system in Johannesburg, the better.
Pricing and payment options: The best doesn’t always mean the most expensive, that’s why we also rated stores according to their product pricing. We also like those that offer numerous payment options.
Policies and support: We gave high points to those with considerable and transparent policies as well as long-lasting warranties. We also like stores that consistently provide good and timely customer support.
Store accessibility: The closer the store is to the city centre and commute routes, the better. Stores with lengthy shopping hours per day also receive high points from us.

  • Various alarm system brands and security products
  • Offers a full range of services
  • Caters to various industries
  • Early operating hours


  • Unavailable on Sundays and Saturday afternoons
  • Some comments about limited parking and tight entrance
  • Some lacking details on website

If you want an all-around shop for your security needs, Pyro-Tech should be among your top choices. There are a few things that made us list Pyro-Tech in this list. 

First of all, it offers the best alarm systems in Johannesburg from various brands. Its brands include CADDX, DSC, IDS, Paradox, Jablotron, and Texecom.

Second, is that Pyro-Tech offers the full range of services, from sales to installation and even maintenance services. This way, you only need to contact one company for each of your security needs.

You can even browse by brand on its website. Unfortunately, you’ll still need to communicate directly with the shop as its website lacks pricing and other details about the products.

And because of all these products, Pyro-Tech is even trusted by big commercial brands. So, the next reason why we recommend this shop is because it can cater to commercial, residential, and industrial clients alike.

Lastly, we like that Pyro-Tech has early operating hours throughout its operating week. Still, we didn’t give it a perfect score for schedule availability as it’s still closed on Sundays and Saturday afternoons.

To add to this minor con, Pyro-Tech’s website also has empty pages for shipping & returns and store policies. So, should you have any questions about this topic, better ask the shop directly via phone, email, or by visiting its location in the city.

Before visiting the store, you should also know that some clients have raised issues about tight roads and relatively small parking areas.

Since its establishment in 1981, Regal Distributors has provided South Africans with the best alarm and security systems. With numerous branches, it’s among the most accessible security shops in the country.

In the Gauteng area alone, it already has over 13 branches—three of which are within the city limits for maximum accessibility. These stores, however, are closed on Sundays and Saturday afternoons.

Luckily, Regal Distributors has an online shop, complete with descriptions and pictures of the products. Just make sure to create your own account to view the pricing of each product.

We commend its product diversity as it offers all types of security items—alarm systems intercoms, locks, network switches, and more—from over 15 local and international brands. 

These products offered also come with a 1-5 year warranty, depending on the brand. Just know that damaged or incorrectly shipped goods are only viable for exchanges or refunds within a 7-day window.

Fortunately, this shop offers product demonstrations, so you can check before purchasing anything. We also like that returns are made more convenient since any branch can accept items purchased from any other Regal branch.

We also gave a high score for support as Regal Distributors offers technical support, troubleshooting, repairs, and product training services. While these have call-out fees, these costs are posted on its website for transparency.

  • All week availability
  • Convenient suburban location
  • Offers a full range of sec
  • One-stop shop for all security needs
  • Wholesale pricing available


  • Product pricing requires login
  • Relatively fewer alarm system brands

Electroshop is yet another one-stop shop offering various security products. It offers quality alarm systems, intercoms, surveillance cameras, remotes, and even batteries.

Its products come from various brands like Paradox, Hikvision, Centurion, and Digidoor. But you should also know that it offers relatively limited brand choices for the best alarm systems in Johannesburg.

We also like that Electroshop’s online product catalogue is updated so you’ll know what’s available, and what’s not without visiting its location. 

Do know that its website lacks terms and conditions, policies, and pricing details. Luckily, Electroshop’s website does have detailed technical specifications for all its products.

The best thing about Electroshop is that it’s a wholesale distributor of various security products, so you’re likely to get relatively lower prices from this shop. It even has a special page for individuals planning on being distributors themselves.

Even better, this shop also offers the installation of security systems for your safety and convenience. It also offers other services like maintenance and repairs, which is why we commend them for their customer support, too.

And lucky for you, if you want to visit this shop for direct communications and a more personal quotation, you can do it any day. Electroshop’s all-week availability and suburban location are why we gave such a high score for its store accessibility.

  • Numerous local brand connections
  • Offers a full range of services
  • Connections with security system installers
  • Relatively less expensive products


  • Located outside the city
  • No online shop
  • Closed on Sundays and Saturday afternoons

Simply Secure provides safety and security to Gauteng citizens by offering alarm systems, CCTV, controls, batteries and power supply, and gate automation equipment. 

These products also come from trusted local brands, thus providing quick customer support or replacements when needed.

Unlike its competitors, Simply Secure also offers self-defence tools like spray guns to keep you safe and secure even outside your home. 

We also like that Simply Secure offers maintenance and repair services for its products. And while they don’t necessarily do installations, they have connections with trusted installers.

Previous customers have also continuously praised Simply Secure for going the extra mile to find what they needed, even when the item was currently out-of-stock in the shop. 

Speaking of customers, you should also know that most reviews praise this shop for its staff’s friendliness.

However, like any other shop, Simply Secure isn’t perfect. We say this because its location is just outside the city, so you’ll have to travel a bit to purchase the best alarm system in Johannesburg from this shop.

And if you’re visiting this store, make sure you do it on weekdays and Saturday mornings as it’s closed on other time slots.

Simply Secure also has an online quotation form to make things a bit easier. However, this form still requires you to type in blocks of text as it doesn’t have easy dropdown choices.

5. Security-Store Online

  • Wide range of security products and brands
  • Products with complete description and pricing
  • Free delivery within Gauteng
  • 24/7 online shopping experience
  • Policies posted online


  • No physical shop
  • R300 minimum for free deliveries
  • No installation and other services

Ever since 1981, Security-Store Online has been providing security items to Gauteng residents and companies alike. 

We like that it offers everything, from remotes, pepper sprays, and electronic safes to full alarm, CCTV, and automation systems from various brands.

However, if you want to check out the products with your own eyes, then you may need to find another shop because Security-Store Online doesn’t have a physical location. It also doesn’t offer installation and other services.

But what it lacks, it makes up for the various benefits in its online shop.

First of all, all of Security-Store Online’s products have concrete descriptions and pricing. And should you have further questions about the product, you can also send your questions via its online forms.

You can even arrange products according to price, alphabetical name, popularity, or rating. 

Second, this shop allows bank transfers, credit card payments, and electronic transfers—thus making payment easy for you. Unfortunately, it doesn’t allow cash on delivery payments.

Next, Security-Store Online offers free next-day shipping for orders made around Gauteng. While there is a minimum of R300, it’s easy to go over this price when it comes to security items.

The fourth benefit we found is that Security-Store Online has policies posted on its website, we like this as it offers transparency. From these policies, we even found that its products come with at least 1-year of warranty.

Lastly, since this shop is an online shop, it’s thus available anytime. So, if you want to buy the best alarm system in Johannesburg even in the wee hours of the day, then this shop should be your top option.
