Q. Is Astro Guard Alarms licensed?

A. Yes; we’ve been licensed since 1984.


Q. Why should I monitor?

A. If you are looking for peace of mind and protection, a monitored alarm system is your best bet. Monitoring means instant response – the police will be dispatched within minutes.


Q. What are the advantages of local monitoring?

A. Local monitoring means the quickest response times for the safest and most effective security. Out-of-province and out-of-country companies lack the hands-on knowledge of your area, and can have delayed response times.


Q. Is a monitored alarm system beneficial to my home insurance policy?

A. Absolutely! Having a monitored alarm system installed in your home will qualify you for a discount on your home insurance rates. The amount of the discount provided depends upon your specific insurance provider.


Q. How can I prevent false alarms?

A. Prevent false alarms by reading up on your system and getting to know its features so that you are comfortable with its operation. If there is a problem, just let us know as soon as you notice so that we can solve it before it gets worse.


Q. What is Astro Guard Alarms’ monitoring coverage area?

A. We provide coverage throughout the Lower Mainland from West Vancouver to Chilliwack. Please see our alarm monitoring Vancouver area map for clarification.
