Alarm a testing time for neighbours

The last few weeks have been a trying time for the neighbours surrounding the Waiuku Cosmopolitan Club.

After upgrading their alarm system recently, it seemed that even a spider could trigger the sensors in certain areas of the club, creating broken sleep for many in the vicinity and often taking over an hour to turn off.
After receiving several complaints, the team at Waiuku Cosmopolitan Club asked Auckland Council and the alarm installers to delve deeper into the problem that they were facing. This saw them come out last Friday.
While not wanting to disclose too much information on the subject, Secretary Manager, Katrina Barnett, has confirmed that they have solved the problem with the newly upgraded alarm and its sensors over the weekend, and that there shouldn’t be any regular disruption to the residents from now on.
“We have a very old building that has a brand new alarm system installed, and we have experienced some teething problems.
“It was suggested that disabled the alarms but after several attempted robberies, we just weren’t prepared to do that. We have since found the fault an had it rectified over the weekend.”
Katrina says that the Waiuku Cosmopolitan Club would like to apologise to their neighbours for the inconvenience and disruption the alarm has caused.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
