What Is a Security System and How Does it Work?
A security system is a means or method by which something is secured through a system of interworking components and devices. The goal of a security system is to secure entry points and vulnerable areas in the home with sensors communicating to a system control panel, creating a protective shield from potential threats.
My House Was Broken Into. What Do I Do?
The first thing you need to do is call the police and file a report. This is necessary for both insurance claims and finding the thief(s) to retrieve your belongings. Once you have come to terms with the break-in, the next measures to take is to better safeguard your home. The best solution we can offer you is a monitored home security system. We understand how vulnerable you must feel and how you need security now more than ever.

I Rent an Apartment. Should I Still Consider a Home Security System?
“Home security” doesn’t only refer to houses; it applies just as much to apartments. As long as there is authorization from your landlord, there are a wide range of options for your apartment.
Can Purchasing a Home Security System Decrease My Homeowners Insurance?
Some insurance companies will give up to a 10% reduction in insurance rates for homeowners who purchase a security system. Please contact your insurance provider for more details.
I think I live in a safe neighbourhood, why do I need a security system?
The perceived safety of your neighbourhood may actually leave you more susceptible to crimes. A monitored home security is more than just an alarm, it is network of sensors, detectors, and cameras that are communication with a monitoring station that will contact you, and emergency responders, in the case of an emergency, whether you are home or not. You can never be too careful, the protection that comes from a security system is truly priceless.
Do I need an alarm permit for my system?
Yes, depending on where you live, an alarm permit is mandatory for homes and businesses. This is mainly to address the issue of false alarms. If a permit is needed, or if you already have a permit that you obtained with your previous alarm company, please contact one of our Solution Experts so we may update your account and pass the information to the monitoring station and police department.
I don't have a landline. Can I still get a system?
Yes, yes you can! Our systems communicate wirelessly through cellular networks, no landline needed. Cellular connection is a more safe and secure way to monitor your system.
Are wireless security systems secure?
Absolutely! It’s much easier for an intruder to cut a landline than disrupt the wireless signal to the security panel. A wireless security system communicates through a secure encrypted cellular network to keep you protected.

Privacy - Invisible
Can JM Security listen in and invade my privacy?
Two-way voice home alarm monitoring is a way for the monitoring operator to listen inside the home in the event of a alarm signal and verify the response or threaten the intruder. Many believe that home alarm companies can listen in the home when the alarm has not been triggered. This is FALSE. A connection with two-way voice monitoring is only established after an alarm has been triggered. Without a triggered alarm, there is no way for the monitoring station to listen into the home.
System Specific - Invisible
Will my security system continue to work if my wireless network goes down, or if the power goes out?
Yes, almost all of our devices have a backup battery of 24 hours in case of a power outage. Those devices that run on wi-fi, like our doorbell camera, will not be able to function unless there is power and a wifi-connection available.
When a security breach occurs, does my system tell me where in my home it happened?
Yes. Each sensor protects a door, window, or area, and will indicate the location of the breach when an alarm occurs. You will also receive a call from the monitoring centre to confirm the alarm. If you have the Interactive monitoring package, you will also be notified on your app with a push notification.
Can I turn the alarm system on and off?
We suggest that you not turn the system off completely, but you can arm and disarm the system whenever you need. If the panel is off it leaves your home vulnerable and unprotected!
What do I do if my system is reporting that my door or window is open, but it is actually closed?
This could be due to the sensor and magnet being shifted slightly out of place. The two contacts in the device could be too far apart or the arrows on the transmitter and magnet could be misaligned. If you’re having this issue and are unable to determine the exact cause and resolve it, contact us!
Can I add cameras to my system?
All of our systems and monitoring packages allow for cameras integration. Adding cameras to your system require you to add PRO Video to your current monitoring package. For more information on monitoring prices click HERE.
Do pets trigger motion sensors?
Our sensors will not detect pets that are under 50lbs in weight. Any animal larger than that could trigger an alarm. To rectify this, our installers will use different devices in place of motion sensors to make sure you are well protected – and your furry friends too!
What type of batteries do door and motion sensors use?
All the devices us long lasting lithium ion batteries.
Does my security system have a warranty?
Yes, your system hardware is covered by a 2 year warranty. If anything breaks during the first 2 years we will attempt to fix it or replace it (if needed) and cover service charges.
How do I use my phone to arm the system?
Our Interactive and Ultimate monitoring packages allow you to arm and disarm your system remotely. Looking at your alarm.com app on your phone, you will see either a green or red shield right on the main page. This indicates whether your system is currently armed (red) or disarmed (green). If you click the shield, you will have the option to either arm the system (if it is disarmed), or to disarm the system (if it is armed). That’s all there is to it!
