he sign over the door and on the trucks may say “AE Security,” however they are actually in the peace-ofmind business. AE Security has been one of Calgary’s most respected and premier home, business and commercial security companies for 30 years. It was founded in 1983 by Randy Larkam, who brought in his daughter Elisha Walsh and Chris Rubak as shareholders to add to the already dedicated, knowledgeable and dynamic family. “Not only is the latest technology tremendous and exciting,” says Larkam, “but it gives our customers so many new and sophisticated features they not only need, but more importantly want. Like remote arm and disarming as well as arm/disarm notifications and video clips emailed to their cellphones, video technology, card access, going online to open the front door, rekey their own access cards and more. “Often nowadays it’s so much more than a ‘security system.’ It’s a communication – information – technology service.” While AE utilizes the most up-to-date and state-of-the-art technology, Larkam is genuinely proud that the truly unique AE difference is their superbly trained and qualified AE staff. This includes their expertise with various residential and commercial security technologies as well as their long-term experience. “We’re one of the longest serving privately-owned Calgaryarea security service companies. We provide our clients over 120 years of combined experience in the security industry, with a personalized touch,” Larkam explains. “No voicemail is used during business hours. For the most efficient response and reliability, you need to be able to reach a live person. And you do, every time.” “We make sure that the AE staff has the latest information
and can quickly assist our clients. Most importantly, our clients call in and always speak with a real person who is a trained professional, who can help and not just say ‘check the manual.’” For 30 years, AE Security has unconditionally maintained an intentional personalized and simple touch about their installations and service. And it’s still reflected in the original motto, which is as much a part of the AE promise today as it was when the doors first opened 30 years ago: “Large enough to serve you; small enough to know you!” For the home, security systems will give the entire family the peace of mind they deserve, with keypads and backwards compatible automation home controllers. Beyond the best door, window, motion and glass-break detection AE also provides, freeze, fire, flood and CO gas protection with 24-hour monitoring, police and/or guard dispatch and response. Now you can get an email or text when your child disarms the security system after school and even get a video clip attached. Not only can you control your alarm from your smartphone or PC, now you can also control locks, thermostats and lights as well. Your mother can live in your family home longer because she wears a two-way voice pendant that she can use to talk to the monitoring centre in an emergency even when she is outside gardening. For business, AE Security provides complete end-to-end solutions, from simple storefront intrusion to ULC-listed fire alarm monitoring and burglary systems that integrate video and access control for retail, commercial, industrial and complex warehouse distribution environments. Their web-hosted fully-integrated access control systems let

They listen to specific needs, and then they develop and propose a customized security design plan and arrange every detail of the installation. “Would you like to unlock your deadbolt with a four-digit code and automatically disarm your system, turn your thermostat up and turn on the foyer light? Or maybe you would like to control the security system at your cabin from your smartphone and turn up the heat before your arrival,” Larkam smiles. “Honeywell has a Connected Home solution that adapts to your family’s changing needs and customizes to your lifestyle.” Especially in today’s security-conscious life, trust and reliability matter ... a lot!
