What is a home security loan?

Having a home security system is something many families across Australia have installed to maintain peace of mind about their family and belongings.

However, installing a security system isn't cheap. Depending on the size and complexity of the system, costs generally range from $300 up to $4,000.

If the price is putting you off securing your home, consider applying for a Jacaranda Finance home security loan and pay in flexible instalments rather than one lump sum.

Am I eligible for a home security loan?

The basic eligibility criteria you must meet before submitting an application:
  • Be at least 19 years of age.
  • Be employed on a permanent or casual basis.
  • Have a consistent income going into your own bank account for the last 90 days.
  • Be in control of your finances and be handling existing financial commitments comfortably.
  • Be an Australian citizen or permanent resident with a fixed address.
  • Have an active email address, phone number, and online banking account in your name that belongs to you.

We accept a wider range of credit history than a bank or a prime lender, but we do not recommend submitting an application if:

  • You are currently or recently bankrupt (you must be three years discharged and in control of your finances)
  • You are not comfortably repaying your existing financial obligations

THE APPLICATION PROCESS

We Make Applying Easy

We know how important it is to receive your funds in a timely manner. As a hard-working Australian, you don’t have time to waste on needless paperwork.

That’s why our loan application process has been perfected over time to be as simple and quick as possible.

How expensive is a home security system?

There are many components that could make up a home security system. We break down the costs of four major security components:

 

Source: SPL Security.

Home security cameras & surveillance

Cameras allow you to watch what is happening around the circumference of your home. Traditional cameras will record footage, while smart cameras will send a stream to your smartphone.

A low-end camera can cost around $250, while a high-end model can cost upward of $1,200.

Security Screens

Security screens must meet a variety of Australian standards before being sold, guaranteeing they will withstand various tests in impact, leverage, and cutting to ensure their durability and ability to withstand force from an intruder.

Costs range from $600 to $1,400, with installation varying depending on the door size, type, and material.

Control panel activation and installation

Control panels allow you to access, connect, and control elements of your home security system, like enabling and disabling sensors and alarms.

Activation and installation typically range from $700 to $1,900.

Alarms

Fire, smoke, and burglar alarm costs vary depending on the type and quantity of the alarm. Generally, alarms range from $30 to $50 per alarm, not including installation costs.

Our loan application process has been designed to be as simple and quick as possible, as we know how important it is to receive your funds in a timely manner. How quickly you can apply for a personal loan and receive your funds will depend on your situation.

Applying for a loan with Jacaranda Finance takes most people 5-12 minutes1, but it could take longer depending on a number of factors such as but not limited to how fast you are at typing or if you have all the required information on hand.

After applying, most customers get an outcome on their loan application on the same day during normal business hours once we have received all of the supporting information we require. We do not guarantee same-day outcomes for all customers.2

Once an applicant has been approved and they have signed a contract, we automatically attempt to release the money to the applicant's bank account. Most customers have a New Payments Platform (NPP) bank account and receive the money in their bank account within 60 seconds. For other customers, the money will be available overnight on weekdays and overnight the following business day if approved on a weekend or public holiday.3

Repayments on your loan are automatically set up to be deducted via direct debit from your bank account in line with your pay cycle.

Provided you are meeting your minimum contractual repayments, you can change the date of your direct debit payments, make extra repayments, change your bank account details and more from either the FastMoney app or online portal.
