AE Security provides more than residential and commercial security, video surveillance and access control systems; it provides peace of mind. Since 1983, AE Security has offered Calgary the best in home and business security systems, ranging from temperature and flood alarms to smoke and CO detection, video surveillance to mobile GPS medical alert pendants. Over the years the company has earned its reputation as the premiere security company in Calgary and as the city continues to grow and evolve, so does AE Security.
Now in its 35th year, AE Security has embraced the cutting-edge technology of today’s security systems without sacrificing the personalized, small-company attention it affords each client. The 10-member staff, many of whom are long-term employees, go above and beyond to ensure that clients are satisfied.
“We have good support here. If you call, someone answers the phone,” says Randy Larkam, founder and president of AE Security. “We have great people and that’s the key to providing a high level of service.”
Another key is to align with great partners to bring clients the best products on the market. AE Security was Calgary’s first Honeywell authorized dealer in 2003 and the company is proud to offer Honeywell’s product lines, specializing in the new Lyric Smart Security and Home Control system.
“It’s a more modern, future-proof design and is meant to be operated from a mobile device instead of having keypads all over the house,” says Larkam.
Lyric is simple to use, employing voice commands or easy-to-access controls through the Total Connect app. Beyond 24-hour protection, the wireless system can do everything from turning on and off lights and adjusting the thermostat to emailing photos of the kids when they let themselves in after school. AE Security programs the system to fit into clients’ lives, making security easy and reliable.
AE is now offering a do-it-yourself option for the client who still wants the quality and value but appreciates the DIY experience. Consulting with their knowledgeable professionals allows each customer to have a personalized system designed, programmed, and tested. This results in a professionally monitored alarm system that is tailored to each client and all they have to do is install the devices.
“The hardest thing they have to do is connect it to the Wi-Fi,” he says.
Whether clients are ordering a DIY option or having a comprehensive system installed, AE Security is dedicated to providing the best products and service possible. As Larkam begins handing over the reins to his daughter Elisha, sales manager, and Chris Rubak, installation and service manager, the next generation will carry on the tradition of excellence and service, keeping Calgary clients safe and secure.
