About Us

VIP Security

Founded in 1997, VIP Security specialised in large building and industrial security projects. The business grew quickly, and in January 2000 VIP Security was bought by international giant Siemens.

The systems and training given, allowed the new Siemens Security division to successfully take on larger and more complex projects. In late 2002, Siemens International decided to restructure the business models and the founder Dave Proud purchased the company and re-formed VIP Security.

Since then, while still promoting Siemens and other quality products, VIP Security has again grown to become a major player in corporate, commercial and industrial security (see our testimonials and previous projects). VIP Security's head office is in Christchurch, and with our technicians working across the South Island, we service customers as far afield as Picton, Balclutha and Dunedin.

We believe our strength comes from our staff, who all exhibit a strong focus on customer satisfaction and are committed to go the extra mile to achieve the desired results. Our goal is to be the leading security installation company by choice in the South Island. We aim to do this by providing excellent service with a dedicated and professional team. We look forward to discussing with you how we can help exceed your security needs.

Financial Controller (Saint)

Karen joined her husband David and took a more active role in the business when VIP Security was re-established after buying back from Siemens in November 02.

Karen has the unenviable task of trying to keep David from buying too much demo equipment and other techno pieces.

Karen also keeps close eye on the books.

Morgan also handles our client invoicing.



We have built upon humble beginnings to see a reputation within the industry as being amongst the best of those available to perform your work.

We are extremely proud of our history and the accomplishments that have gone with it, but on the other side of the coin we are also ensuring we look forward to the future so that we can provide you with only the most modern and complete system solution possible.



It is not good enough just to “preach” on about our ethics and reputation.
VIP Security is a committed member of the NZSA (New Zealand Security Association), Canterbury Chamber of Commerce, FMANZ (Facility Management Association of New Zealand) and several more organisations.

We feel that a responsible attitude determines a responsible and accountable business. .



In an age where technological advances are rapid and regular it takes a large commitment to ensure that your team are competent and skilled enough to work with constantly evolving systems.

Training for our team is not just an in-house process. Many of the VIP Security staff find themselves attending training all around the Country and often at times also in other parts of the World.

We Recommend

Being of an established ilk where we have founded a reputation for quality systems and longevity of service VIP Security recommends a range of product that while can be tailored to fit into any situation also provide a very high degree of reliability and quality.

German engineering mixed with Kiwi ingenuity and American technology feature amongst our product range with systems from companies such as Siemens, Gallagher's, ICT, Axis, Pelco and Geutebruck.

Additionally VIP have trained technicians able to operate and work on many of the other brands operating throughout the country, meaning we are well positioned to take on existing security systems.
