About Price’s Alarms
Price’s Alarms is the oldest security company in Canada. Owned right here in British Columbia by the Price family and founded as a locksmith in 1895, Price’s is a name you can trust. Over 30 years ago our family owned security business branched out to include alarm systems. Today, we are one of the largest independent alarm companies in western Canada providing round-the-clock ULC monitoring protection to more than 30,000 homes and businesses across Vancouver Island, the Lower Mainland and the Okanagan.
With local offices and local employees to serve our customers better, we pride ourselves on being the local company that has been in operation since 1895. In this day and age, so many companies come and go, technology changes so quickly, and companies can change ownership without you even knowing. Price’s Alarms is here to stay – four generations of the Price family have led our organization and we are proud of our past. We are a good neighbor, we place high value in your safety, and in the safety of our community. We strive to do everything possible to meet your security needs.

- We are Security Experts: Having been in the business this long, we know that talented people and quality equipment can make all the difference. Price’s Alarms has long standing relationships with companies like GE that are well known for selling and supporting top quality security components. While some companies use just one brand of equipment, Price’s Alarms studies every customer’s unique needs and sources the right equipment every time, regardless of brand or supplier. Many companies have started installing wireless security systems because they are so easy to install – we sell them too, but only to the appropriate customer. This expertise in delivering you only the most appropriate security solutions only comes from many years of learning. Being the oldest security company in Canada shows that we have had more opportunity than anyone else to learn from our mistakes. Being experts in our industry is the best assurance you have that we’ll do the job right.
