Responding to alarms

This is how we respond to alarms:

  1. Your security system emits an alarm signal. As soon as your system triggers an alarm, the monitoring centre is alerted and operators take action.
  2. An operator contacts the owner or resource person whose name appears on the call list in order to validate the alarm. Our computer system tells us the precise location where the alarm was triggered. We follow the response procedures set out in your personal file.
  3. If required, our operator will contact the appropriate response service.
  4. The response service arrives and takes appropriate action.

The patented “Crash and Smash” anti-sabotage technology ensures that your system remains functional even if the security panel is damaged before a signal is sent or if the phone line is cut.


Electronic messaging

This service connects your system to an e-mail address or cell phone (text messaging) of your choice. Receive notification at all times on the state of your system, know what is happening in your home, and much more.

Two-way communication

Whatever the nature of an emergency, the two-way communication system allows our agents to collect information in a timely manner and ensure appropriate and effective response. We can interact with you whenever an alarm is triggered.

Guard response services

Uniformed patrol personnel can be sent to your home when an alarm is triggered to check the perimeter and determine what caused the alarm. This helps prevent unnecessary police intervention and costly fines resulting from a false alarm.

24-hour connection check (or link verification)

In order to ensure that your system is connected to the monitoring centre, a verification signal is sent every week. The self-test service checks the connection every 24 hours.

Warranty for parts and labour

This warranty is designed to extend your security system’s useful life and prevent unexpected repair costs.
