I'm shopping for a home alarm system.

-are certain alarm companies that are not compatible with Telus Optik or the internet service?

-what questions should I ask when choosing an alarm company?

Won't have anything to do with with Optik or internet. Most alarm systems are connected through a phone line. Pricier ones use cellular. As long as you have a working landline, they can use it. They'll just have to make sure they wire everything up correctly to the POTS splitter. If you don't have a landline, cellular connectivity will be your option.
