Alarm systems' design are highly customized and personalized , however there are strict rules regarding  installer qualification , equipment certification , standards of installation and , if the system is monitored , the Central Station has to be ULC approved. Any alarm installer must be licensed , bonded and insured. The products themselves should have appropriate certification  CSA (Canadian Standard Association) and ULC (Underwriter Laboratories of Canada).
 If A higher level of security is required ( usually in commercial systems) , connection with Monitoring Company could be through a dedicated line  and the installation to have a ULC certification .
To be considered are : runner services , a backup system for phone lines ( cellular phones) , a visual device ( strobe light) to help authorities locating your house and alerting you that an intrusion occurred when you return. 
Open/Close reports will also be very useful , counting the fact  that in 41% of  B&E the alarm system was not activated.

  WHAT SHOULD I ASK MY ALARM COMPANY

  • MAY I SEE PROOF THAT YOUR COMPANY HAS ALL APPLICABLE PROVINCIAL AND MUNICIPAL LICENSES

  • WILL YOU PROVIDE ME WITH A WRITTEN QUOTATION ?

  • WILL I OWN THE SYSTEM OR BE LEASING IT ?

  • DO YOU OFFER ANY PROTECTION FOR PRE-PAID MONITORING ?

  • IS THERE A WRITTEN WARRANTY ON THE EQUIPMENT AND LABOUR ?

  • WILL  SYSTEM BE MONITORED  , AND IF SO , WHAT IS THE COST AND  WHO WILL BE DOING IT ?

  • HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN SECURITY ALARM BUSINESS ?

  • DO YOU ADHERE TO A FALSE ALARM REDUCTION PROGRAM ?

  • Is the equipment proprietary or could be monitored and serviced by any alarm company?

  • after THE INITIAL CONTRACT EXPIRE, IF YOU DON'T WANT TO RENEW IT, YOU WILL RECEIVE  THE "lockout code"( IF ANY)  AND  "master program code" AT NO EXTRA COST, SO YOU WILL BE ABLE TO REPROGRAM YOUR ALARM SYSTEM IF YOU WISH .
