ALPS Security was founded in 1995 by the current President Tim Lynn. Tim created T.F. Lynn & Associates to provide a range of security services to commercial and residential customers in Calgary. As business grew Tim expanded the scope of security services provided by the company and changed the organization's operating name to Advantage Loss Prevention Services (ALPS). To help manage the growth and meet the needs of an expanding list of clients Paul Lynn joined the organization in 1996.

One of ALPS's initial commercial security customers was Calgary Co-op and Tim and his team are proud that Co-op remains a valued customer. The long term customer relationship is a testament to Tim and Paul's focus on service and providing professional and efficient security solutions.

In 2012 ALPS expanded the scope of service to included criminal background checks through the acquisition of Allison Associated. Residential clients were regularly asking for assistance in expanded home automation installations which led to ALPS also purchasing a specialized home theatre and automation organization in 2012. With this acquisition ALPS is now able to meet all needs of homeowners for alarm installation, home theatre and home automation design and installation, and residential security systems.
