A Home Automation System for the Holidays

Originally posted on 26 October 2020

home automation system

The holiday season is an ideal time to consider installing a home automation system. In recent years, home automation has become a very popular option for homeowners, making life easier and more comfortable. And with today’s technologies, it’s really quite amazing.

At Engineered Alarm Solutions, installing a home automation system means automating almost everything – from the house lights to appliances, to heating and air conditioning, and more. It’s also an effective way to save energy on heating, cooling, and home lighting.

Home automation systems can also be integrated with a home security system. It means that homeowners considering a home security system in Toronto would do well to fully incorporate everything and install their home automation with all the bells and whistles.

The Benefits of a Quality System

At Engineered Alarm Solutions, our home automation systems function through a central alarm panel – it’s the most secure way to communicate between each device – lights, thermostat, even the deadbolts in the door. Even better, all of the devices can be operated remotely.

Cheaper, lower quality systems depend on the home Wi-Fi to operate, and therefore there could be reliability issues. Our home automation systems are fully integrated, and will always work even the Internet and Wi-Fi connection goes down.

Technology and Customization

Engineered Alarm Solutions has the most technologically advanced home automation systems on the market. Everything is customizable and the programming is designed to meet the specific needs of each homeowner while keeping budget requirements in mind.

With our home automation systems, a homeowner can adjust indoor temperatures, check on the security camera feed, lock and unlock doors, and even turn the house lights on or off. Best of all, it can all be personally controlled by using a smartphone or smart tablet.

Home automation also allows for monitoring home energy usage and therefore makes it easier to save on utility bills throughout the year. With a video monitoring feature, it’s possible to keep an eye on loved ones, young and old. In short, the features are countless.

Home Security as a Component

Investing in a residential security system is simply about preventing crime – and a good system will actually deter a burglar. Conversely, homes that do not “advertise” a home security system tend to be easy prey for a home burglar. The option of investing seems to be clear.

For some homeowners, the overall cost of a security system in Toronto might be costly. After all, installation costs, hardware costs, and monthly fees mount up. However, it’s an investment with great benefits – it’s like an “insurance” policy that provides real safety and security.

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. The Priest from our Church recommended us to call Engineered Alarm Solutions Inc. (EAS) because they have done the security systems at the Church. We called EAS for an estimate. They came to check our home and explained to us all the options we had and provided an estimate. We also had other estimate from a different...


After moving into a new home, we needed a reliable security system to keep our family safe. We contacted Gabriel for a full alarm system, home automation, and security cameras. He met with us in person to ensure we understood the services and how everything worked. As an engineer by trade, Gabriel gave us comfort in his expertise and superior knowledge in the field. No sales pitch, just honest work and guidance on how to best protect our home. We now have a top of the line system, apps installed...


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. The service was prompt and the installation went ahead without issue. The price was very reasonable. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking to install a security system.

We recommended him to another business a few units down from us who required an even more complex security system and have heard only good things since then. Would definitely recommend using their...

5 star review Several years ago, I hired Engineered Alarm Solutions Inc. (EAS) to install a Monitored Alarm System, Security Cameras, and Home Automation (Deadbolts, Thermostat, Lighting Control, etc.) in our new home. When we purchased the home, it came with a pre-existing security system that was frustrating to use, had recurrent false alarm issues, and we needed to find a new company to install a reliable and better quality system. Our experience with EAS was extremely positive and we have...
