CANASA (the Canadian alarm association) has insurers that they
recommend and even provide a discount for members so I was hoping that
there might be something similar in the US and I was thinking those US
insurers might be less concerned about covering sales in both US &
Canada.  I'm not imagining anyone would know what premiums might be
involved, I'm simply looking for suggestions on which brokers and/or
insurers do "failure to operate" insurance for alarm companies south
of the border.  So if you carry liability insurance that includes
"failure to operate", who's it written with is all I was asking so
that I can make some phone calls and see if they would consider a
policy with a significant amount of Canadian exposure and what the
premium might be.

Contact the ESA via their website at http://www.alarm.org , they might be
able to help you out........
