About – Union Alarm

Our Company & Our Team

At Union Alarm, we’re quite proud of our accomplishments, and this includes our history in the Calgary business community. Our team is led by the companies founder (Graeme Browne) and our general manager (Peter Gallant). Together, these principle partners have successfully led our company operations since 2004, while each also demonstrate some 30+ years experience as Certified Master Technicians. That in itself – is no small feat!

Respectively, we are ranked as one of Calgary’s best alarm companies. While also known to be a leading security integration firm, we are unique in the respect that we service everything from electronic security systems to the mechanical locking hardware that keeps your doors “secured”. This means we pull the cabling and install the control panels, but it doesn’t stop there. We further install “all” related door hardware! This includes electronic card readers, mag locks & electrified door strikes, as well as exit control hardware to meet life safety codes, and comply with building standards.

  • Together, our team offers more than 85+ years of industry expertise!

  • We specialize with integrated security systems and advanced electronic security solutions.

  • With our head office located in Calgary, we service the entire Province of Alberta!

Add to that, a new branch opening in Winnipeg for the spring of 2022, and it’s clear to see we have our sights set on business to business development across western Canada.

In summary, our skillsets are vast, our leadership ~ bold, and our commitment to service ~ unparalleled.

Customer Testimonials

Recently, we had a security system installed with Union Alarm for our two Calgary facilities. We needed electronic locks and electronic keypad entry to provide card access control within our two sites – a new security measurement we’ve added to control sensitive areas. Throughout the entire process, the company representatives came off as knowledgeable about the entire process and were very professional. Overall, excellent services! | Card Access Control
