Security Systems. Alarm Systems. Burglar Alarms. There are lots of names that these systems go by, but they all do one thing: help keep the people in property on your property safe. FMC installs custom-designed, scalable, useable commercial intrusion alarm systems, and we feel that even the most novice use should be able to use our systems with little to no training.
That’s why our commercial intrusion alarm monitoring systems are user-friendly and staff-friendly, while providing the industry’s strongest detection.
Our certified technicians install and service intrusion alarm monitoring systems, custom built for your facility’s needs. This ensures a quick and seamless integration into your day-to-day operations. All of FMC’s systems are monitored in our own ULC-listed, Five-Diamond Certified alarm monitoring station.

HOW DOES MY COMMECIAL INTRUSION ALARM SYSTEM WORK?
One of FMC’s trained customer service representatives will visit with you to determine what level of detection you need, what devices will work best for your business and what type of monitoring system you will need. We will then design your commercial intrusion alarm monitoring system to meet your need and have one of our Canadian Security Association trained technicians come to install the system. We use only ULC-approved intrusion alarm monitoring equipment, and will install a control panel which will be the “brains” of your commercial intrusion alarm monitoring system. We work with many types of security monitoring devices, including door contacts, motion detectors, glass break devices, beams, and keypads among many others to ensure the highest level of commercial intrusion alarm monitoring. These devices can be hard-wired or wireless, and our Customer Service Representatives will work with you to determine which solution is the best for your facility. Wireless commercial intrusion alarm system have become much more reliable, and batteries in these devices can last for up to 8 years!
HOW DOES MY COMMERCIAL INTRUSION ALARM SYSTEM COMMUNICATE WITH FMC?
Depending on the technology available in your building, our commercial intrusion alarm monitoring systems can be monitored over a phone line, cellular connection internet or DVACS (for legacy systems). For higher levels of commercial intrusion alarm monitoring, FMC can combine these methods of communication to ensure signal receipt in the event of an alarm.
WILL YOU DISPATCH POLICE?
FMC will work with you to develop a response protocol for your commercial intrusion alarm system which limits false dispatches of police, and works within the guidelines of the Alarm Response Policy of the region that your commercial property is located in. Different Police Departments have different requirements for response (check with your local department for more information) and FMC will work with you to ensure that your commercial intrusion alarm system meets every requirement for the best possible response. FMC typically recommends Enhanced Call Verification for our alarm systems to minimize false dispatches.
CAN YOU PERFORM VIDEO VERIFICATION OF MY COMMERCIAL INTRUSION ALARM SYSTEM?
Yes! FMC can provide video verification of any alarms received from the commercial intrusion alarm monitoring system on your premise. This involves a detailed mapping of any CCTV cameras on your premise with your commercial intrusion alarm system so that in the event of an alarm, our monitoring station dispatchers can view those cameras and see if there is a valid alarm or activity at your site. Some commercial intrusion alarm systems can even stream your video directly into our automation software. Video verification of commercial intrusion alarms has been shown to increase apprehension of criminals, as verified alarms are usually prioritized by police departments for faster response.
CAN I GET UPDATES FROM MY COMMERCIAL ALARM SYSTEM ON MY PHONE?
Yes! FMC partners with Alarm.com which provides Interactive Alarm Monitoring services, including home automation, remote arming and disarming, thermostat control, video surveillance and much more. This can all be managed centrally for one location or multiple locations through an app for your iPhone, iPad or Android-powered device. This is not only highly useable for the home user, but has significant business implications as well that can save you time and money.
Securing your staff, your facility and your assets is a major decision. However, it doesn’t have to be a major inconvenience.
