According to a North American study on the effectiveness of alarm systems, 97 percent of home security system owners believe that their systems are effective at guarding against a home break-in.
topElectronic security is the use of electronic equipment to monitor an environment. Various detection devices may be incorporated into a system to detect burglary, fire and other so called critical functions. The alarm control is connected via a communication link to a 24 hour monitoring station which functions to receive transmitted signals and act on them accordingly, i.e. to call local emergency response authorities. Typically the system is armed and disarmed using a digital touch pad using a confidential entry/exit code.
WHAT IS ELECTRONIC SECURITY?
topThe cost of lost sentimental and personal possessions are incalculable and disruption and lost workdays due to burglary significant. An electronic security system allows you to restrict and control access to any area. Premises with electronic security are five times less likely to be burglarized. Fire monitoring substantially reduces loss and mitigates down time. Insurance companies often demand electronic protection as a condition of insurance or offer significant discounts in recognition of its importance in loss prevention. Nationally 98.7% of alarm system owners say they are very satisfied with their electronic security investment. Dealing with our established organization is a good decision and sound investment.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
topBasic home and business systems start at $399.00 and address basic security requirements. Monitoring of a systems using industry standard digital format is $25.00 per month. Larger custom systems requiring design and consultation may be quoted as per customer requirements. Consultation and engineering for major accounts is on hand and references available upon request. A customer care person would be pleased to meet with you to discuss the various options appropriate for your application.
WHAT WILL IT COST ME?
topMost persons victimized by burglary or suffering from the misfortune of a fire immediately enquire about an electronic security system. The potential loss of life, the disruption and distress of a violation take years to overcome. The investment in an electronic alarm system mitigates a loss and deters a potential burglar.

topAn alarm control is the master computer based command centre of the security system. All remote control, detection and annunciation devices are wired into this control. Additionally, the master control contains a back up power supply and remote transmission equipment to signal electronically, to our 24/7 monitoring station, in the event of an alarm condition.
WHAT IS AN ALARM CONTROL?
topSecurity systems require a back up power supply in the event of power disruption or failure. All system main controls contain a special rechargeable security battery.
WHAT IS A BACK UP POWER SUPPLY?
topA touch pad allows the system operator on site control and operation of the security system. Typically, an LCD display indicates status of the system and digital numbered keys allow for arming and disarming of the system using a confidential code.
WHAT IS A DIGITAL TOUCH PAD ARMING STATION?
topA motion sensor is a device that is located at strategic locations within the area of protection, which detects intrusion. Various detection technologies may be used including infrared, laser, microwave or combination of the above depending on the volume of the space to be protected and ambient environment. Special Pet Exclusion Sensors allow common pets to enter the area of protection and not be detected, this allows for a system to be armed with pets free to wander the protected area.
WHAT IS A MOTION SENSOR?
topA monitored smoke alarm allows for a sophisticated form of smoke detection. The presence of smoke in the detector triggers a transponder device, which sends a designated fire signal to the 24/7 monitoring station allowing for the dispatch of fire response authorities.
WHAT IS A MONITORED SMOKE ALARM?
topA monitored carbon monoxide alarm allows for a sophisticated form of gas detection. The presence of carbon monoxide in the detector triggers a transponder device, which sends a designated alarm signal to the 24/7 monitoring station allowing for the dispatch of designated response authorities.
WHAT IS A MONITORED CARBON MONOXIDE ALARM?
topA low/high temperature alarm sends a designated alarm signal to the 24/7 monitoring station upon a sensing of low or high temperature in the surrounding environment.
WHAT IS A MONITORED LOW/HIGH TEMPERATURE ALARM?
topA glass break sensor is an acoustical sensing device, which detects the sound of glass breakage.
WHAT IS A GLASS BREAK SENSOR?
topA contact is a device that can detect door or window movement.
