    Default NESS or Bosch for DIY home alarms ?

    Although I've read (quickly) through the installation manuals for these alarm systems it is not obvious which may be easier for DIY.
    Any recommendations from people here or any other tips for a DIY system ?

    Not use about the other states, you’ll have to be licensed to install an alarm or CCTV system in WA.

    Licenced? I've seen mention of this before but no one has ever produced any facts.
    Would you be able to give me a link to some WA legislation that will clarify it for me?
    I suspect it is just people with vested interests trying to con the rest of us into paying them a heap of money because they are "licenced" when in fact there is no such requirement.

    Gregg - are you doing this for yourself or is someone paying you to install a security system for them?

    Only doing it for my own house. Certainly no desire to do it anywhere else. (It's a mighty PITA as it is !)

    So you don't need a security license but the cabling needs to be done by a registered cabler.

    If my interpretation is correct.

    In Australia, you dont need an electrician, security installer or registered cabler to plug in a 12 volt transformer that goes to a box which makes a light on your house flash. and I am not talking about christmas lights.

    btw bosch 3000 but all a pain in the ass

    You're correct.

    Any 'fixed' cabling is required to be installed by a licensed cabler.

    The definition of 'fixed' is any concealed cabling in walls, ceilings, under floors, even if it just goes through a wall, it's considered concealed.

    Thanks for the feedback people.
    Any suggested/recommended online suppliers of Ness gear?
    (I recently found "smartTEKsecurity.com.au but they are unresponsive when I emailed an enquiry).
