FIRE ALARM MONITORING 101
- Fire alarm systems are designed to detect a fire in your building and alert the occupants to evacuate.
- Fire sprinkler systems are similar and have the added ability to suppress a fire.
- Neither has the ability to alert the Fire Department of a fire at your building - unless you add a fire monitoring system and 24/7 ULC Monitoring service plan with Fire Alarm, Fire Trouble and Fire Supervisory detection.
- A Reed Security ULC Certified technician can install a fire alarm monitoring transmitter that meets the CAN/ULC-S561-13 national standard.
BRANDS WE MONITOR
- Johnson Controls, JCI
- Silent Knight
- Simplex Grinnell
- Troy Life & Fire Safety
- United Technologies
WHAT IS CAN/ULC-S561-13?
- It's the fire monitoring standard written by the Underwriters' Laboratories of Canada (ULC).
- It's the standard that is referenced in Building Codes and Fire Codes.
- It provides maximum protection and safety.
- It governs how fire monitoring equipment is installed, how it communicates and how its maintained.
- It governs how 24/7 ULC Monitoring Stations are built and how they receive signals from your building.
WHY DO YOU NEED CAN/ULC-S561-13?
- Fire Departments across Saskatchewan, including the Saskatoon Fire Department, are now enforcing the CAN/ULC-S561-13 national standard for fire alarm monitoring.
- Building Inspectors and Fire Inspectors are performing random inspections and will request to see your ULC Certificate.
- Most properties WILL NOT have a ULC Certificate (as the standard was not enforced in Saskatchewan until recently).
- If you cannot produce a ULC Certificate there will be a deficiency placed against your building and you will be provided some time to get obtain one.
- Failure to produce a ULC Certificate can result in large fines and delayed building occupancy.
- The ULC Certificate is the only physical proof that your site meets the ULC Standard for fire alarm monitoring.
- If your security alarm provider CANNOT issue a ULC Certificate they are not providing ULC-level monitoring.
- Reed Security is ULC Certified for both installation and monitoring; Reed Security can issue a ULC Certificate.

Smart video monitoring is a modern security essential. With video alerts, live security camera feeds and 24-hour recording options, video makes it easy to stay in the know about important activity at your home or business.
With Alarm.com's newly launched video analytics service, it can be even more valuable.
Video analytics is a highly intelligent security feature that monitors your property's video streams to distinguish important events from routine activity. It uses this real-time insight to filter and categorize your video alerts, giving your video monitoring a new level of control, customization and value.
Video analytics uses cutting-edge artificial intelligence, developed by our computer vision research team for home and business security. It can tell whether a moving object in your driveway is a person, an animal or a vehicle. It can ignore a person who quickly visits your front door and then leaves (the mailman), but alert you if a visitor lingers too long in the same place. It makes these distinctions in real time before alerting you—or not—according to your preferences. Video analytics also lets you create virtual "zones" and multi-directional "tripwires" for your cameras, enabling it to further categorize activity based on the layout of your home or business and the areas you need to protect. You can know when:
Vehicles come and go: Know when a vehicle stops outside your home, but not every time a vehicle drives past.
Visitors linger: Get a video alert if someone lingers by your front door, but not when the mail is delivered.
Pets break the rules: Know if your pet breaks the rules to nap on the couch when you're at work—or if your neighbor's dog pays an unwelcome visit to your lawn.
Video analytics is the latest in a line of proactive, intelligent safeguards developed by Alarm.com to keep your home or business safer, including Crash and Smash protection, Unexpected Activity Alerts and Geo-Services triggers.
If you're interested in activating video analytics, contact Reed Security a Reed Security Authorized Dealer to learn about security camera and service plan options.

When a human or vehicle is detected a strobe light and audible alarm are triggered - a huge deterrence for unwanted visitors.
Instant alerts can also be sent to your smartphone.
All objects with a temperature above absolute zero emit thermal
radiation, even at low levels.
This kind of radiation, invisible to the human eye, can be detected by
thermal imaging sensors.
Thermal Cameras can produce images in
the visual spectrum by detecting temperature differences between
an object and its surroundings. The larger the difference, the bigger
the contrast variety, making details visible. Thermal cameras can be used for applications in more
challenging environments to detect people and fire.
