Welcome to Armstrongs

A Becklar Company

Who We Are​

Armstrongs has been providing exceptional wholesale, ULC listed alarm monitoring services to independent security dealers across Canada since 1989. We are proud members of CANASA (Canadian Security Association), with a proven track record of reliability and customer satisfaction.

Armstrongs does not sell, install, or quote on security tenders. We take pride in specializing in security monitoring services for Independent Security Installers. This is the sole purpose of our business and is why our company slogan is “Armstrongs Is Your Partner, Not Your Competitor.”

We have multiple redundant sites strategically located across Canada. We are a ULC listed Shared Service company for Burglar, Fire & Financial services and currently monitor over 250,000 accounts across Canada.

Our state-of-the-art Data and Monitoring Centre in Laval, Quebec, is a critical part of the network, offering superior redundancy in our operations. Redundancy significantly increases the probability that a signal is properly received regardless of circuit issues, weather, or equipment failure. We not only focus on equipment redundancy within our monitoring centers but also redundancy among our centers. Any two of our three centers can carry the entire North American monitoring load with capacity to spare. ULC is now recognizing this need for simultaneous redundancy with the new requirements for 2025 – so with Armstrongs our dealers will be covered beyond the new standard.

As part of Becklar Enterprise Monitoring, we provide enhanced services such as remote guarding, video verification, expanded dealer tools and applications, and improved redundancy. In the past 18 months, Becklar Enterprise Monitoring has invested approximately $3 million in Canada’s operations and infrastructure.

Becklar Enterprise Monitoring is TMA Five Diamond Certified, recent winner of TMA’s prestigious Monitoring Center of the Year, five ESX Innovation Awards, and three SSI Stellar Service Awards.”
