About Us

With over 15 years of industry experience, Pete Allen has worked on all types of security projects from homes to hospitals to airports, he’s seen it all.

Having worked for some of the largest security providers across Aotearoa New Zealand, Pete became aware of the gap in service delivery and after-project care for clients, inspiring him and his wife Anita to start AP Security in 2021.

AP Security provides powerful residential and commercial security systems in Christchurch. We can design, install, and maintain a security system from scratch or work with you at any point in the process. We provide straightforward, honest advice with a fair quote and are available 24/7 for callouts.

We’re passionate about providing resilient security solutions that protect the people and things that matter to you.

To ensure this, we offer ongoing maintenance plans and only use high-quality products from industry leading providers. We pride ourselves on excellent communication and a service second to none. You can be confident that we’ll always show up on time, respect your space and privacy, and install an efficient security system fit for your needs and budget that keeps your home or business safe when it really matters.
