Welcome to our story! Dynamic Security was founded in 2020 by Nik Prajapati. At the time Nik was working as a security engineer on projects for some of New Zealand’s foremost institutions he noticed that even banks, corporates and property developers were not always getting the best solutions for their specific needs. Nik explains “I have seen many examples where clients would have benefited from closer collaboration with the Electronic Security Companies. Security technology touches on many business functions so failing to work through the detail can result in very significant costs to the client in terms of usability and performance.” The second problem I saw was that by the later stages of the construction process, security technology had often evolved by one or two generations from the technology that was available during the early design stage. When you look closely at the solution, clients were getting stuck with technology that was lacking important functionality with lower specifications. In some cases, the security architecture required higher long terms operational costs including staffing or even real estate than that of current technology.
We founded Dynamic Security and set out to solve these problems through ongoing collaboration throughout the pre-build and build cycle. We believe that as our client you deserve the best solution available designed around your specific situation.
Today we help our commercial clients achieve their core mission not just by creating a secure environment, but we can sometimes reduce ongoing operational costs. We do this by creating a solution that fits the organisation and the longer-term environment in which it operates.
Where it all started
To understand Dynamic Security you need to understand how it all started. Nik came from humble beginnings in a small Indian called town called Thara. As the son of a local brickmaker grew up, Nik’s dream was to run a successful business and help his community (just like his father did in his community).
Nik recalls “I learned some important aspects of running a business during childhood. My dad worked very long and hard days. He always taught me if you work hard and do good for your clients, they will be happy, and you will be respected in the town.”
Another important virtue I learned is unity; this includes, collaborating for a common purpose, and supporting those who need help. Nik remembers clearly how people visited his dad asking for help or money and his dad always gave them something. Many of these things have stuck with me and have become part of our values at Dynamic Security.
After completing my engineering degree, I moved to New Zealand in 2015 where I worked for several leading Security Technology Companies while continuing business studies and progressed to senior engineer and project manager.
I am grateful for much of my progress to the input of good mentors, working with some “New Zealand Security Industry gurus” has not only enabled me to become better technically but has enabled me to successfully manage multifaceted projects and teams on some of New Zealand’s biggest security projects.
Niks vision is to become the leading Security Technology provider in Australasia. His approach is simple, close collaboration with clients and within our team to provide excellence in solution design and implementation.
