5 Reasons A Monitored Home Alarm System Is Worth It

Originally posted on 01 April 2022

When it comes to home security systems in Toronto, a monitored alarm system can indeed be a game-changer. True to its name, a monitored alarm system engages a professional monitoring company to secure your home 24/7. If you’re still on the fence about a monitored alarm system, let the experts at Engineered Alarm Solutions show why a monitored alarm is a must-have for your security tool chest!

24/7 Monitoring

It is not possible to keep checking your home alarm system or security camera in Toronto all the time. Homeowners can be occupied with vacations, meetings, and unreliable cell signals or emergencies. With professional alarm monitoring, you can rest easy. Your monitored alarm company will keep an eye on your home 24/7. A triggered alarm alerts the monitoring company that first gets in touch with you and the concerned authorities if you’re unavailable. 

Real-time Security

Honestly, nobody is scared of an alarm signal anymore. Professional robbers are often one move ahead. These days they cut off the Bell or Rogers wires outside the house, break a window or door, and wait. They don’t try breaking in right away; instead, they wait to check if the police, neighbours, or the homeowner arrives. If nobody comes within 10-15 minutes, they go in and empty the house. This implies that either the alarm was not appropriately monitored or was monitored via the internet or telephone line. This is why Engineered Alarm Solutions recommend that home security systems in Toronto should be monitored and use a GSM (dedicated alarm cellphone communicator). 


A monitored alarm service is definitely more convenient. In case of an emergency, the monitoring company can contact the concerned services on your behalf. This will ensure that you can focus on keeping yourself and your family safe during an emergency situation. In an unmonitored alarm system, the responsibility of contacting the police or emergency services falls on you. 


Detects Various Emergencies

From fire and flood alarms, medical emergencies to break-ins and ‘duress,’ a monitored security system can detect exigencies. The monitoring agency will immediately notify you or the appropriate authorities in case of a fire or attempted burglary. There is even a unique ‘duress code’ if robbers force homeowners to deactivate alarm systems! The monitored alarm systems also offer additional medical alert services that can send appropriate medical responders in medical emergencies. 

Peace of Mind 

Perhaps the biggest advantage of a monitored home alarm system is the sense of security and protection. Whether you’re on vacation or at work, the monitoring company will ensure that correct action is taken when your alarm goes off. What’s more, your family and home are protected round the clock for less than $1 per day. And the knowledge that your loved ones are safe? Priceless! 

Undoubtedly, who is monitoring your premises is very important and professional monitoring stations are a must. If you’re ready to take a positive step towards gaining precious peace of mind and 24/7 protection, contact the experts at Engineered Alarm Solutions. We have years of experience and expertise in keeping families and offices in Toronto & the GTA safe from harm. We’ll help you pick the perfect alarm system and security camera in Toronto that fits your needs. Connect with us today for security solutions you can trust!

We are religious sisters and about two years ago we needed to protect our home because our neighbourhood is not very safe. We leave in a big house with too many windows and doors.

From initial contact until completed installation Engineered Alarm Solutions Incorporated were outstanding. I was provided with several options to choose from. A professional technician installed a new system in my home within 2 days of making the decision to upgrade my home security system.

5 star review Several years ago, I hired Engineered Alarm Solutions Inc.
