Passive Infra-Red Motion Sensor (PIR)

The reliability and performance of your security system can be greatly enhanced or impeded by your choice of motion detector.

The key point to consider is this: if the alarm sounds on your system, has an intruder entered... or is it a false alarm? It's not something you want to be in doubt about, which is why you need to make the best decision possible.

Simply put, look for a motion sensor that is built to provide the highest immunity to false alarms possible... without compromising catch in any way.

Many of today’s sensors are pet immune - if they are installed properly. Low end and mis-applied motion detectors are a significant part of the false alarm problem! Don't even consider "economy" models, your savings will be short lived.

Audio Glassbreak -
You can stop them on the outside!

Honeywell ProSeries Glassbreak sensor

When you consider that breaking a window is one of the most common ways an intruder would gain access to your home or business, installing glassbreak detection isn't a luxury - it's essential security protection.

Consider audio glass break sensors if you are looking for protection while you are at home when motion detectors are of little use or if you want detection before a thief gains entry.

A glassbreak detector is limited by how well it hears all sounds and by how smart it is in reacting to just the one sound that poses a threat to your security. They utilize an advanced microphone system able to capture sound far beyond the range of human hearing, at low volume and up to 25 ft away. Once captured, sound is analyzed for the unique signature of breaking glass in remarkable detail thus providing you most protection for your security dollar.

Door/ Window Contacts -
Your perimeter line of defence!

Door and window contacts

Contacts (magnetically actuated vacuum sealed reed switches) provide immediate notification should an intruder force a door or window open. These should be applied to all of your accessible doors and as many windows as your budget permits. There are several types depending on the application, some styles can be completely hidden out of sight.

A Louder Siren will Scare Them Away Before Trouble Starts

If an intruder tries to break-in, the sound of the siren will usually send him running. Plus, if you have a fire detection system installed, the siren will alert you to the emergency.

Did You Know?

28% Of Residential Insurance Claims Are Caused By Water Damage

You may think your security system is primarily used for intrusion detection but you are just as likely to experience an environmental problem that can have disastrous consequences. A water leak caused by a frozen pipe or old hot water tank will lead to big problems.

Consider the outcome of loss of heat in the winter when you are away, a leaking water heater, a broken washing machine supply hose, a leaking basement or a sewer back-up flood.

Detectors of All Types

Smoke detector

Smoke Detectors - Life Savers!

Smoke detectors provide life safety fire detection. AE Security only uses photoelectric sensors because they provide earlier detection for slow building fires.

Heat/fire detector

Heat/Fire Detectors

Heat detectors provide fire detection in areas that contain too much dust, smoke or steam (garages, kitchens, warehouses). They also provide detection for areas with explosion hazards like furnace rooms.

Low temperature detector

Low Temperature - Freeze Detectors

You need these in Calgary! Economical low temperature sensors detect cold before your pipes freeze in the event of furnace failure. Today's furnaces can fail to ignite when you're away resulting in burst pipes and many other subsequent issues.

Flood detector

Flood - Water Sensors

It's only a matter of time before you need it! A water sensor near your hot water tank - floor drain & upstairs washer can prevent or reduce costly water damage.

Carbon monoxide detector

Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a deadly, odorless, colorless, tasteless toxic gas that is produced when fuels are burned. Large amounts of CO can overcome a person in minutes without warning—causing them to lose consciousness and suffocate.
