Can I buy and install my security items myself?
The City recommends a licensed professional installs your security items.
However, you may buy and install your items yourself with the exclusion of any hard-wired electrical items. A registered electrician must install devices requiring hard-wired electrical supply, including sensor lights.
What happens if my security items cost less than the rebate amount listed?
Rebates are paid up to the maximum amount listed on your application form.
Should you buy an item that falls below the rebate amount listed, only the cost of your item will be rebated. For example, the maximum rebate listed for a home intruder alarm is $100, but if yours costs $90, only $90 will be rebated.
Am I guaranteed a rebate?
No, rebates are offered to those who apply first. We cannot accept your application after the rebates have been expended.
We recommend applying for pre-approval before purchasing your security items. This is to ensure funds can be allocated to you.
What is the maximum rebate?
The maximum rebate amount is $100.00 per household, per financial year.
If you have a valid Pensioner Concession, Healthcare or WA Seniors Card, the maximum rebate is $200.00 per household, per financial year.
Can I claim more than once?
No, Residents/Property Owners are only entitled to make one application per financial year.
If you want to install multiple items these must be submitted on one application.
Can different people in my household apply for a rebate?
No, only one rebate can be claimed per household.
Can I apply for a rebate for security items I bought for my business?
No, the Security Incentives Scheme only provides rebates for items installed at your home.
I wish to buy security items for someone who lives in another city. Can I claim the rebate on this?
No, rebates are only offered for residents who are installing security items at a City of Canning residence.
How do I get my rebate?
Your rebate will be paid into the bank account you nominated on your application form. Please note that we cannot process your rebate without a copy of your bank statement header, which includes:
- Account Holder Name
- Account Number of your nominated account.
Do I need to register my CCTV system with the police?
It is not mandatory to register your home CCTV with police, but the City recommends that you do.
Cam-Map is a secured database operated by the Western Australian Police Force. It contains all voluntarily registered CCTV systems across WA.
