Jan 2018 – We are very pleased to announce that we are now western Canada’s exclusive dealer for Intermotive. Intermotive makes plug-in modules that allow you to control your vehicle. These modules include idle security, idle control, Black Out modules (for police use), and much more. This month they released their Idle Guard, which automatically engages the Safe Park feature on a Charger police car. It makes life a lot simpler for the officers, and ensures the car won’t get stolen while it’s sitting at a scene, idling. Contact us for more details on this or any other Intermotive module. See a demo video of the IdleGuard here;
Dec 2017 – We are proud to be the BC dealer for Tiger Tough Tactical seat covers. These seat covers are built specifically for law enforcement vehicles. They are made out of 1000 denier “ballistic” nylon and have an extra layer of reinforcement over the lower lumbar area of the seat-back cover. The combination of the material used with the extra layer of fabric results in an extremely tough cover. This means your seats won’t get dirty and chewed up! The covers are easy to remove and wash. They have a waterproof backing, so spills won’t make their way through to the seat fabric. You can even get your department’s logo or other text embroidered in the cover! Best of all, the design fits really snugly and doesn’t shift or ball up. Great for any police agency. Tiger Tough also has heavy duty seat covers for pickup trucks and other heavy vehicles as well. Contact Us for pricing and details.
Nov 2017 – We are now authorized partners for Sierra Wireless! Sierra is the world leader in in-vehicle cellular modems and gateways, and is based right here in BC. Sierra has a line of mobility-specific (designed for use in vehicles) ruggedized modems. They can do more than simply allow your in-vehicle laptop to talk to the internet; they can also create a Wi-Fi cloud around your vehicle so you can attach multiple devices to one modem, can monitor vehicle location and also monitor vehicle status via the OBD port. We’re very excited to be partnered with this world-class company. Contact us for more details or see the Sierra website here .
Oct 2017 – If you want a shore-power automatic eject socket that works, check out the brand new Blue Sea Sure-Eject . While it fits in the same cutout as the competitive brand, it uses a motorized ejector rather than a spring system. This helps ensure consistent ejections. The Sure-Eject will be available in late November. Also, you can insert the cord easily with one hand. The Sure-Eject also has an indicator light on it so you know when it’s getting power. It comes with a yellow cover and other colour options are available as separate items. If you are interested in the Sure-Eject, contact us for details and pricing. We’ll be posting a demo video in a few weeks. The Sure-Eject works perfectly with the Blue Sea P12 onboard charger and remote display.
June 2017 – We are happy to announce that we are now a dealer for Panasonic. After more than 15 years of providing mounting solutions for these world-class computers, we are now a dealer. We can now supply you with any of the Panasonic rugged or semi-rugged computers, with or without a docking station setup. Contact us for more details.
April 2017 – We are really excited to carry the new Magnetic Mic microphone hangup ‘clip’. It replaces your traditional metal clip with a magnet, and comes with a steel clip that goes over your existing microphone’s hangup ‘button’. This allows you to keep your eyes on the road rather than having to look down and fumble for the mic. These unique little items are fantastic for any vehicle equipped with a 2-way radio. We keep lots in stock. The mounting holes are even the same spacing as a traditional 2-hole mic clip such as a standard Motorola clip! The kit comes with mounting screws and hardware. It’s super quick and easy to install and will make a huge difference to how you work in your vehicle. It’s about as exciting as a mic hangup can get!
March 2017 – Our newest addition is the “Decked” heavy-duty drawer systems for trucks and cargo vans. These unique drawer systems allow you to maintain full use of the cargo surface area, plus have two drawers (that can hold 200 lbs each) underneath the floor at a proper ergonomic height. These are available for a wide variety of full-size pickup trucks and service vans. Please Contact Us for more information and pricing.

November 18, 2015 – Federal Signal has released a very innovative new product called AirEL. AirEL is a system of illuminated ID numbers, designed for the roof of police cars so that helicopters can more easily identify cars on the ground. This makes it much easier for air officers to direct cars around as required to hold containment, etc. These are ultra-thin lights that glow when switched on. They can also (optionally) display thermal signatures. There are many other uses for the AirEL product including airports, fire departments, and more. See overview video below. Contact Us for pricing and further details.
Sept 5 2015 – Westin Public Safety recently released their new Skid Plates for the 2012-2015 Ford Utility Interceptor (Explorer).

June 25, 2015 – This month’s special (June/July) is our new flexible, high-efficiency solar panel systems! If you have vehicles where you just can’t keep the batteries charged, these 3mm thick panels can glue or screw to the roof. The 30 watt panel will output 1/2amp-2 amps depending on conditions and will offset most ‘parasitic’ draws. The 100 watt panels will generate up to 6.5amps and can completely power most LED warning lights PLUS charge your vehicle’s battery. See link for details; July 2015 Solar Panel special

September 9 2014 – Sigma Safety is now a distributor for Dragon Eye Technologies – a manufacturer of high-end LIDAR speed enforcement tools. DET has been making LIDAR guns for over 15 years, though often re-branded as another name.
DET has some unique features in the LIDAR market, including an extremely effective anti-jamming technology (see demo video below) that allows the LIDAR gun to obtain speeds even while being jammed. For more information on this unique LIDAR gun system, please contact us. DET makes a rugged, high quality, advanced LIDAR gun that is reasonably priced and easy to use.
July 2 2014 – In addition to Federal Signal and Sound-Off, we are also now carrying the Feniex brand of warning lights! We are really excited about Feniex and in particular their “Cannon” LEDs. The Cannon is considered a “corner LED” similar to something like a Whelen Vertex, but while the Vertex is a good light, the Cannon is far superior. The Cannon uses 12 x 4watt LEDs (Vertex uses 6 x lower power LEDs) so it is MUCH brighter than any other corner-LED we’ve seen. Also, the Cannon has 3 operational modes so you can have a slower pattern on one mode, then a faster pattern on another. You can also set the light to steady-on so you can use it for things like driving lights, reverse light replacements, etc. The lights come in single or dual colour. These lights are made by Feniex at their facility in Texas, and have a 5 year warranty. They mount in a 1″ hole, are completely IP68-rated (fully watertight), and as a bonus they come with the surface mount bezel (other brands charge up to $12 extra for surface-mount bezels). The lights have more than 15 flash patterns including 3 steady-on patterns (steady-on, bright-then-dim steady, triple-flash-then-steady). The Cannon is a well-made, easy to install and wire, and extremely bright light. Pricing is very competitive with other corner LEDs on the market. See short demo video below…
Nov 15 2013 – We are now Canada’s only distributor for Troy Products vehicle equipment storage systems and prisoner partitions. Troy’s factory in California manufactures the industry’s best SUV storage systems and command centers including models for Tahoe, Ford Utility Interceptor, Suburban, and more.
