Moving to the nbn network?

If you have a service on the nbn network and experience a power outage you’ll lose your nbn network connectivity. Although your alarm will sound, the alert won’t get back to the base security monitoring centre who monitor alarm activations. 

The wireless alarm will alert our back-to-base monitoring centre of the outage to help keep your home secure.

Home Protect IP uses your alarm’s back up battery to keep your home alarm connected to our security monitoring centre for up to 24 hours during power outages. Your alarm system will alert our back-to-base monitoring centre of the outage, to help keep your home secure.

Frequently asked questions

Why would I buy security monitoring from Telstra?


Telstra SNP Monitoring Pty Ltd (TSM) is the name of Telstra’s joint venture with SNP Security, the all-Australian security company with over 90 years of experience. TSM handles all security-related advice, connects the wireless IP device to your alarm panel, and is responsible for configuration, testing, training, alarm monitoring, service and support. 


Once we’ve connected your Home Protect service, you’ll need to contact your existing monitoring company to cancel the service you get from them.


In some cases, we may need to fit an external antenna to ensure that you’ll have sufficient signal coverage for our Home Protect IP service. In the worst case, we’ll talk to you about other connectivity alternatives.


Because it uses frequent polling, any fault or compromise of the mobile connection will be detected in less than 12 hours. Wireless is also tamper resistant, unlike wired connections that can be physically cut or unplugged by intruders.  


Home Protect IP provides a wireless connection and alarm-compatible, tamper-resistant communications which comply with Australian security standards. In contrast, connection to the nbn voice port is incompatible with some alarms, which may result in unreliable monitoring, limited or no nbn battery backup in the event of a power outage.


Telstra SNP Monitoring provides professional installation of the Telstra Secure device. If you have any questions, please contact Telstra SNP Monitoring on 1300 184 897 or customer_solutions@telstrasnp.com.au
