Calamity Monitoring Awarded Optus Personal and Business Services Provider of the Year


Calamity Monitoring was recently announced as the winner of the Personal and Business Services Provider of the Year at the 2016 Optus My Business Awards.

The awards ceremony, held in Sydney on the 18th of November, saw leading businesses from all over the country gathered to celebrate innovation and success across a range of industries.

Daniel Lewkovitz founded Calamity in 2008 after recognising a need for high tech electronic security and life-safety solutions in what he saw as a totally stagnant industry. Calamity operates an ASIAL Graded A1 Monitoring Centre which was the first CSAA Five Diamond facility in Australia. Since 2008, the business has grown from a a single customer to now monitoring thousands of public and private organisations, homes and individuals.


The panel said of Calamity “This year’s winner impressed the judges with their fast-moving business model, dedication to customer service and ongoing support for staff diversity”.

Calamity is a major employer of people with disabilities and has a strong company culture renowned for championing diversity. “Our staff are easily some of the smartest and most capable people in the security sector. They’re also some of the happiest. That is exactly who you want taking care of you and your business.” says Daniel.
