Residential Security

We can breathe new life into your trusted old alarm system!

Easily upgrade an existing/older alarm system

Gain modern features like smartphone control without changing any part of your older system!

Go green! And keep your old alarm system viable for years to come.

Prior to now, having features like smartphone control meant virtually all of your older alarm equipment would need to be scrapped and replaced, a potentially expensive (and wasteful!) proposition. But that’s no longer the case.

Meet our SEM

If you enjoy your trusted old alarm system but wish it could provide contemporary features like remote smartphone control, we’ve got an affordable upgrade option for you!

Our System Enhancement Module [SEM] is an advanced piece of hardware that attaches to your existing alarm system and gives it amazing modern functionality. Installation takes less than an hour, with no disruptions to your home. Some of the benefits provided by an SEM are shown below!

Upgrade with our IGM
No phone line needed any more

Lose that landline

Our SEM uses a dedicated cellular connection to communicate your alarm system’s signals. No telephone landline is needed anymore! Our SEM’s 3G/LTE transmitter also brings older 2G-based alarm systems up to current cellular network standards.

Enjoy smartphone control via app

Have app control

With our SEM, your old alarm system essentially becomes a new one, offering you convenient control and awareness right on your iOS™ and Android™ smartphone or tablet. Our included app lets you remotely arm/disarm your system, receive immediate “push notifications”, and much more!

Start having a smarter home

Make your home “smarter”

Our SEM supports Z-Wave “smart home” devices – like electronic door locks, lights, and thermostats – and it lets you add these devices to your existing alarm system. You’ll even be able to remotely control them through the SEM’s included app!

Local alarm monitoring right from Prince George

24/7 monitoring of course!

While our SEM can upgrade your alarm system’s technology, it’s Curtis-Elite’s 24/7 service and local alarm monitoring that keeps you protected. With an SEM you’ll still receive the expertise and support you’re accustomed to from us!
