Chiptech Limited, based in Christchurch, New Zealand, is a privately owned company specialising in quality telecare and telehealth products. Our development focus is on solutions that help people to maintain their health, independence, and safety, in their homes.
Chiptech was established in 2000 as the dedicated manufacturing division of Safehouse Medical Alarms Ltd, a company set up in 1990 by Chiptech’s managing director, Graeme Moore. Over a period of twelve years, Safehouse established a reputation as New Zealand’s leading supplier of medical alarms.
In 1993, Safehouse formed a business association with St John Ambulance who provided the monitoring and emergency response service for Safehouse Medical Alarms. What began with a desire to help people remain independent, safe and secure in their homes, quickly grew into a company that designed, installed and supported thousands of medical alarms.
In 2002, after a long and successful association with the ambulance service, St John purchased the retail operation, Safehouse Medical Alarms, and began marketing the renamed St John Medical Alarms.
Chiptech, under the continued directorship of Graeme Moore, then focused its attention on designing and manufacturing quality electronic products, to supply an increasing local customer base, as well as fulfilling a long term goal to export. This has lead to Chiptech becoming the largest supplier of monitored personal alarms in Australasia. Having achieved continued success in the Australasian market, Chiptech is now establishing an export market in the United Kingdom and Europe.
