A man’s home is his castle, as the saying goes. But homes today don’t normally feature ramparts, drawbridges, moats and six-foot thick stone walls to keep out unwanted visitors. Today, home alarm systems, and preferably managed home security systems, is needed to ensure your home’s security. Not only does installing a home security improve the safety of your family and possessions, but it can also decrease your home insurance cost.
Having a monitored security system allows you to be sure your home is safe and secure whether you're at home or away.
Without an alarm system installed in your house, burglars can spend long hours in your house going through valuable things. Even if you do not keep any valuable items in your home like cash and jewelry, a stolen cheque book, name, address, SIN card number and other personal documents can cause you thousands of dollars in identity theft and it takes years to recover from these loses. At the first sign of trouble, your monitored security system will notify our Emergency Response Centre where professionally trained operators will respond quickly and effectively, no matter what the emergency is.
HOME SECURITY REDUCES BURGLARY AND INTRUSION
A touch pad is placed next to the door you use most often. And, it’s easier to use than your telephone as there are only 4 numbers to press when setting or disarming your system.
When you’re ready to leave your home, on your way out, simply press “ AWAY” on your key pad and your system will be activated . Don't worry, you will have plenty of time to leave the premises without feeling rushed.
When you return home and open the door, your home security system will greet you with a friendly chirping sound. What the system is saying is “Welcome home, everything is fine. There have been no problems. Please come in and turn me off.” Now, before you go to bed, simply enter your master code and the “stay” button. This will turn on all of your system except the motion detectors. This allows you to get up at night without setting off the system. If an intruder attempts to break in during the night, the siren will sound and the system will immediately transmit all vital information to the command center. They will know who you are, where you live, what door or window has been violated and the police will be dispatched.

Imagine you are busy and the children (or grandchildren) are playing down in the living room. You've told them not to go outside until you come back because you don't want them running out into the street. You've set your home security system on "Chime". If the children forget your warning and open the door, the system will alert you with the chime. The chime feature provides you with peace-of-mind in many situations
You have about 2 minutes after your smoke detector sounds, to get you and your family out of a burning house. By the time the smoke detector goes off, the house is already filled with smoke.
You and your children may be dizzy and disoriented from the noxious fumes.You’ve have been woken up from a deep sleep with the detector blaring. You wake up your spouse and they are confused and disoriented as well. You grab the children and run them outside with your spouse. Now you call 911.
911 is a great service for people who don't have a professionally monitored security system. But did you know that 911 operators must ask you up to 14 questions, before they can dispatch help? That's a very long time when your home is on fire.
With a security system by S3 Canada Ltd, your local fire department is automatically contacted when the smoke detector sounds. The system immediately sends the fire signal. All your critical information is already on file at the command center. The fire department is immediately dispatched and already on their way by the time you and your family are outside the burning house.
