About Us

From humble beginnings in a converted pack shed on an apple orchard, HSM has grown – much like an apple tree from a seed – into the large full-service security solution provider it is today.










Starting out as HomeSafe New Zealand Holdings Limited in 1997, founder Fred Stevenson was soon joined by son Matt, who came with a wealth of experience to add to the brand.
In 2000 the company acquired its first monitoring station and re branded as HSM.
In 2007, HSM moved into our current, purpose-built premises with a state-of-the-art monitoring station from where we now monitor clients nationwide.
Both shareholders, Fred and Matt, are actively involved in the business, leading from the front and employing a hands-on approach to support staff and service customers.

Don’t let security breaches interrupt your operations.
At HSM, we understand that time is money. We protect not only your property and assets, but your operational ability too. We respond to alarms immediately, deterring would-be criminals from targeting your business. Smashed window at 2am? We can arrange a glazier to repair it immediately so when you walk in at 8am, it’s business as usual.

Locally-owned and based in Hawkes Bay, we are passionate about our community and are incredibly proud to be keeping it safe and secure. We proudly support a number of worthy local causes, and find it a privilege to be able to give back. We now service customers across the whole of New Zealand. Our clients range from residential and small business customers, through to large corporate organisations, government departments and a large number of schools.

We take pride in working closely with you, understanding your requirements and implementing effective, long-term solutions to protect you and your premises.  Don’t leave your safety to chance.  Please contact us so we can tailor-make a solution to protect you, your loved ones and your property.

Alison McKimm – Big Save

Since 2007, Big Save Limited has been using the services of HSM Security Group on our Hastings and Napier sites.  We have also used HSM Security to supply electronic doors and gates and to install fire compliance systems. At all times we have found Matt Stevenson and the HSM team to be professional and helpful. They carry out the security function in a  business like a manner and respond promptly to our changing needs. I would highly recommend the HSM Security Group.

Stephen Ricketts – Mitre 10 Mega

I wish to acknowledge my thanks for a job well done on the recent build of our new Mitre 10 Mega store in Hastings. Your pricing was competitive and the quality of the equipment and workmanship was excellent. The size of the store at about 11,500 m2 is large, and the timeframe we allowed for its completion was relatively short, but your firm managed the project efficiently and in a timely manner, enabling us to open at our predetermined time.

At all times the cooperation between yourselves, the other contractors on site and with us was exemplary. This was a major project for us, but it was made easy because of the approach you and your team took. We have now moved all of our work at our other local sites into your care, because of your clear expertise and ability in this area. Many thanks.
