Our Journey

Canal Alarm began in 1973 with two guys, a stack of burglar alarms, and a shop in New York City. Our roots were humble, and we've grown since then, but our vision is still clear: to provide the best security gear—and to be the best at doing it.

Even though we command a global reach, Canal Alarm retains the feel of a small, neighborhood mom-and-pop shop. We are a proud, family-owned business built on honesty and treating people right.
