Local monitoring that has withstood the test of time.

Acme Protective Systems Limited has been operating its own surveillance station since 1980, through its associated company APS Security Ltd. Through a program of investment and upgrading, Acme is able to provide the technology and services normally found in large publicly owned monitoring stations, while remaining a locally owned and operated company.

Able to monitor through all forms of communication.

Acme services commercial and residential customers using a variety of surveillance methods, ranging from traditional dial up systems to DVACS, GSM cellular, and IP monitoring solutions. Our receivers are capable of handling alarm signals from a wide number of legacy alarm panels, as well as the latest internet based systems.

Held to the highest standards in the industry.

Acme is listed for both ULC Fire and ULC Burglary. The insurance industry and Municipal Authorities recognize Acme as a provider of fire system monitoring in multi-tenant residential applications, and intrusion alarm monitoring for high risk clients such as jewelry stores.

Acme Monitoring Systems

Disaster preparedness.

In addition to the power and system redundancy that is part of a ULC listing, Acme also performs daily off-site data storage, and has contingency plans to switch monitoring operations to an alternate site in the unlikely event of a local disaster.


Experienced operators who serve you better.

As well as its ULC listings, Acme carries a Five Diamond Certification from the Central Station Alarm Association ( CSAA ), which is the highest certification given, and testifies to the training standard of our station operators, who have an average of 10 years experience in a monitoring station.

The ACME monitoring difference:

  • Locally owned, managed, and staffed at our Vancouver offices since 1980
  • Compatible with everything from legacy phone line alarm panels to the latest high-tech internet communicators
  • High standard of equipment, protocols, and emergency recovery give ACME the ability to monitor the most high security and life safety systems in the industry.
  • Multilingual operating staff with the experience required to make the right decisions during emergency response.
