  • 1 - What is a security system?
    A security system is made up of several elements allowing the detection of any potentially dangerous situation. In general, the security system is composed of detectors, a control module, an alarm keypad and a siren. A security system is obviously more complete and safer when it is connected to a central monitoring station, to ensure rapid intervention by the competent authorities. Despite the fact that the remote monitoring service is optional; Groupe Sécure strongly recommends connection to the central for increased security.
  • 2 - What is remote monitoring of a security system?
    With remote monitoring, your alarm system remains in contact by telephone with our Monitoring Center, which can react in the event of an alert. If a detector is triggered when the system is activated, the telephone line is mobilized and a signal is automatically sent to the central monitoring station.
  • 3 - Is the security system connected to a police station?
    No. The security system is connected to the Groupe Sécure central monitoring station. Staff acknowledge receipt of alarm signals and determine appropriate action in the circumstances (alarm acknowledgment, call for fire, police, or emergency medical personnel, as appropriate).
  • 4 - What is the role of Groupe Sécure and the central monitoring station?
    Groupe Sécure takes care of the sale, installation, maintenance and repair of equipment as well as after-sales service. The central monitoring station, for its part, processes and transmits the various alarm signals received and is responsible for monitoring the alarms.
  • 5 - Where is the central monitoring station located?
    Our monitoring centers are located in Montreal and across Canada. Our equipment combines the most specialized technology in the field of remote monitoring with an extensive fiber optic network. In the event of an emergency or disaster, our high-tech, ULC-certified center takes over, guaranteeing you uninterrupted service 24 hours a day.
  • 6 - What is ULC certification?
    ULC stands for Underwriters' Laboratories of Canada. ULC certification attests that a product or system has been evaluated and tested and that its conformity corresponds to Canadian standards.
  • 7 - Can I get a price reduction from my insurer if I have an anti-theft alarm installed?
    Depending on the insurers and the type of contract but also the equipment installed, you can benefit from a reduction in premium and cancellation of deductible. On this subject, you should check with your insurer. Inquire to receive your personalized alarm certificate from Groupe Sécure.
  • 8 - What should I do when I communicate with an operator of the central monitoring station?
    1. Give the main phone number or address of the premises.2. Identify yourself using your PIN.3. Give your name.4. Describe the reason for your call or the cause of the alarm.
  • 9 - Can I benefit from a system even if I have a pet?
    Yes. It is true that animals present a challenge for security systems, especially if they have free access to protected areas or if they weigh more than 100 pounds. However, specially adapted motion detectors are available at an additional cost. The specialists at Groupe Sécure will be happy to inform you about this.
  • 10 - Is the system easy to use?
    Yes. The installer will explain the main functions of the system to you at the time of installation. He will then give you a complete manual and instructions for use. In addition, you can contact Groupe Sécure customer service at any time.
  • 11 - What is the role of the people on my call list?
    When your security system is triggered, an operator dials the number of the protected location. If there is no answer or if the person who answers cannot identify himself using a PIN, the operator calls the police department (according to established instructions). Then, the operator of the control panel tries to reach a contact person registered on your call list. For an effective intervention, the resource persons must remain close to the protected area, have the door keys, a code to arm and disarm the system, as well as a PIN to identify themselves.In the event of a prolonged absence, do not forget to inform your resource persons. When one of the people on your call list arrives on the premises after an alarm has been triggered in your absence, an exterior verification must first be carried out before entering the protected premises. It is strongly recommended to wait for the arrival of the police before entering the home.
  • 12 - How can I avoid the police charging me travel expenses because of a false alarm?
    Many municipalities now charge fees for false alarms and unnecessary trips by police or firefighters. Regulations vary from municipality to municipality. • Check with your municipality to find out about the regulations• Ensure that all users of the system are familiar with its operation• Avoid leaving moving or floating objects in the house that could move and cause an alarm• Pets can be left free in the house as long as motion detectors are provided for this purpose.
  • 13 - Why does my phone not work when my alarm goes off?

  • 14 - What should I do if I trigger my security system and create a false alarm?
