According to SCSI’s Dale Acott, rebates in the security industry on PSTN 13xx calls haven’t actually disappeared but have declined drastically due to the NBN rollout to the point that the value is negligible.

“It’s no secret that the alarm monitoring industry has had its ups and down’s in recent years, especially with the change in telecommunication technologies, COVID-19 and the upcoming 3G shutdown firmly in the minds of everyone, with each of these factors impacting on cash flow and profitability,” Acott said.

“Now in 2020, the company that originally helped bring rebates to the industry 20+ years ago, is introducing a new SCSI Rebate Scheme, which is available to any appropriately licensed security installer or central monitoring station in Australia. We are introducing a monthly cash rebate offer based around SCSI’s highly successful DirectWireless alarm transmission system.”

According to Acott, SCSI, being one of the few Australian-owned and operated companies still servicing the industry, is answering the call to help Australian business by offering a $A1, $2 and $5 cash rebate offer every month across all its nominated polling plans.

“Better still, the team at SCSI is pleased to announce that as part of the rebate offer, the DirectWireless 4G/IPDTU alarm communicator will now be available for a flat rate of $99 including GST, with free shipping,” Acott said. “This offer is available industry-wide, exclusively via the new website and independent of any other offer.”

To get the rebate, installers and monitoring stations register online, and sign up to the rebates agreement, order and buy units from the SCSI website, and once units are installed and online, they can be eligible for a rebate payment every month.

“What’s almost unbelievable is that SCSI is extending the rebate offer to include 3G hardware replacements,” Acott said. “When replacing an existing 3G unit, whether it be a competitor’s unit, or even an SCSI unit, you’re eligible for a hardware credit (terms apply) of $40, including GST, making the overall cost of the new unit just $59.”

“This fantastic new rebate scheme has the potential to put thousands of dollars directly back into the hands of installers or monitoring centres every month.”
