Security System Overview
Cannon Automation takes a customized approach to creating security packages using Alarm.com’s interactive security technology. Pricing for security packages is based on a point system.

Alarm.com uses patented Crash & Smash technology which allows your system to send an emergency distress signal even if your system is destroyed or vandalized. Installation and equipment fees start at $149 but may vary depending on system preferences. You can expect to pay $34.95-$49.95 per month depending on how many add-on features you choose.

The mobile app is provided free of charge, so you can monitor your family’s security when you’re away from the house. In addition, Cannon Automation provides remarkable customer service. You can expect to have pleasant interactions when working with this company.
Since Cannon uses Alarm.com’s products, the real service they have to offer is based on their monitoring and automation services. Customers can access control and energy management. Cannon also offers all UL and ULC listed products. Users can monitor their property at all times with Cannon’s services. Cannon utilizes six different monitoring stations throughout Canada for monitoring purposes.
When the alarm is triggered, you will have notifications sent via text or email. Additionally, Cannon Automation does not manufacture Alarm.com products, but users can still go to Cannon with help if the system or technology malfunctions.
Cannon Security Inc. offers a home automation service through their connected system, which ultimately enables fluent automation across all facets of your home security. This includes your basic security, video and energy management systems, and other features.
Benefits of using Cannon Security Inc. home automation includes:
- Maximizing home security features/options
- Porch/burglar light controls
- Door lock capabilities (will automatically lock when system is armed)
- Image alerts (when the door is opened)
- Prevents energy waste with Smart Schedules
- Automatic arming (certain times, schedules, etc.)
Users will be able to set up triggers (for enhanced protection) and set “Smart Schedules” to connect the home security system into one unit. This will combine the video cameras, locks, lights, and thermostats.
Triggers are set off through the sensors installed in various areas all over your home/office space. When these sensors detect unusual activity, they will automatically set off the trigger and allow users to arm/disarm, make adjustments, and control lights/thermostats.
Smart Schedules give users the ability to set automatic light and thermostat adjustments based on the times the user wants. These schedules can be set at any time and on any day of the week. There are also ways for Cannon to analyze patterns to help determine what schedule would work best for all of those living or working in the home/commercial building.
