Based in Te Kamo, Whangārei

ARC Security is a 100% local family-run business with a deep passion for community.

Established in 2004 by Andrew and Rachel Chuter (ARC), ARC Security are specialists in electronic security systems and solutions.

Andrew Chuter’s security career began across the ditch in 1986 and took him all over the Asia Pacific region, including Japan where he was contracted as a security consultant for the US Naval Base upgrade in 2003. In the early 2000’s, after gaining experience in a numerous security system technologies and installation across a diverse range of commercial settings, Andrew and his wife Rachel moved their young family to Whangārei, where Rachel’s sister was already settled. From visits to the area over the years they had realised they wanted to bring their children up in Whangārei’s wholesome small-town community. To this day, wherever they travel, it delights them that they always bump into someone from Whangārei.

Already well known in security circles, Andrew was in high demand upon his arrival in New Zealand. In 2004, Andrew and Rachel founded ARC Security, initially working with national security companies to provide localised services and support for blue chip clients such as banks, MSD and Ministry of Justice. As they grew their team and capabilities, ARC Security established a reputation as specialists in world-class electronic security systems and solutions and they were soon approached by Whangārei’s most iconic business and venues for custom security solutions, including Whangarei’s very own Pak N Save, the Hundertwasser, Tikipunga High School and the Northland District Health Board. The results speak for themselves – ARC Security are long-term security consultants: many of ARC’s commercial clients have been with the company for over a decade thanks to both the success of their security systems and the ease of communication with the ARC Security team.

For 18 years ARC Security has contributed to making Northland businesses and residencies safer with fully integrated and customised security, and has been involved with local schools and their sports initiatives. ARC Security currently sponsors both Kamo Rugby Club and Northland Rugby Union Team. The ever advancing nature of electronic security systems keeps Andrew and Rachel excited about their business and services, and ensures that this Whangarei firm continue to offer Northland the most innovative integrated security systems and solutions.
