Which State Has Australia’s Most Protected Homes – You Might Be Surprised.

Which State Has Australia’s Most Protected Homes? Home Insurance quote data from Budget Direct has shown which Australian states and suburbs are the most secure based on how many homes were fitted with a ‘security alarm’.

It’s worth noting that what users call a security alarm and what the security industry considers to be a security alarm are 2 different things – the penetration numbers for monitored security alarms are completely different and miles lower than they are for whatever is identified as an alarm system by home owners.

Regardless, collective data over 5 years gathered by Budget Direct found that Western Australia leads the way on home security with 63.17 per cent of homeowners who received a Budget Direct Home Insurance quote identifying their home as being equipped with an alarm.

The western state was well ahead of the east with just 53.06 per cent of New South Wales homes and 51.76 per cent of homeowners in Victoria stating they had alarms fitted at home.

The least protected state was Tasmania with 30.59 percent of homeowners who obtained a Home Insurance quote from Budget Direct having security systems in place. Queensland was slightly better, with 33.80 per cent of homeowners noting their houses had security alarms fitted.

Budget Direct’s Chief Growth Officer, Jonathan Kerr, said the collective data showed that at the end of the 2022/23 financial year, 48.67 per cent of Australian homeowners said they had a monitored alarm system.

Budget Direct’s most recent Home Insurance quote data also identified which suburbs in each state or territory had the highest per centage of self-reported residential monitored alarm systems. These numbers were completely different and perhaps far more accurate.

Tasmania’s second largest city Launceston had the most monitored homes in the country, with a still paltry 5.18 per cent of those who obtained a home insurance quote in the suburb noting their home was fitted with monitored alarms.

Dunlop was the most secure suburb in the Australian Capital Territory with 4.06 per cent of homeowners who obtained a Home Insurance quote in the ACT boasting a monitored alarm.

Across the rest of the country, Armadale led the way for Western Australia (2.07 per cent); Mawson Lakes for South Australia (1.74 per cent); Hoppers Crossing for Victoria (1.48 per cent); NSW’s Kellyville (1.34 per cent) and Queensland’s Goodna region (0.57 per cent).

  1. Hi John,

    The article discusses monitored alarms. Are all these alarms connected to a base station, or are some of them utilizing push notifications from standalone systems that don’t require operator intervention?

    Best regards,
    Peter Chris

  2. Hi, Peter – towards the end of the article they talk about the monitored alarm penetration, which is very low. It seems the overall security system penetration includes things like basic self-monitored alarms, CCTV, perhaps doorbells. These systems would use push. Figures of 60 per cent penetration seem very high to me and I did wonder if the numbers were biased by people seeking a discount on their insurance…
