Affordable Security For Small Businesses

Originally posted on 18 November 2019

Owning a small business can be an exercise in good judgement. We must weigh the risks of investing in certain things over others. Every dollar spent is a risk as we try to build our business from the ground up. Questioning whether it’s worth it to invest in a commercial security system for a small business is only natural. That money could be going toward advertising, new stock, or adding to the workforce. Why is putting forward the money for an affordable security system in Toronto a good investment? Here’s why:

Small Businesses Are Targets

You might expect your business to be safe because it’s small. After all, what would a burglar want from your business when they could gain more from a larger one? The answer is simple: small businesses are less risk to break into. Breaking into a small business has the potential to pay off for a burglar without the massive risk that breaking into a chain would come with. Burglars know that big chain companies are equipped to handle break-ins. They’re expecting you not to be, and that’s why it’s best to prove them wrong.

A thief is more likely to prey on the little guy because they know they’re less likely to have adequate security in place. It’s safer for them. If they see your business has security, not only is there less to gain, it has the same risk factors as a bigger business. It’s not worth it anymore.

Recovering From Theft Costs Even More

In the event of a break-in, your small business is risking everything. Losing merchandise that you don’t have the funds to replace, having a register raided – it can ruin a new business. The costs of replacing products and recovering from property damages can destroy a carefully designed budget. That’s what makes security worth investing in.

Advertising the security of your business is great at discouraging break-ins. In the event that there is a break-in, you have what you need to recover from it. Video cameras offer footage of the break-in. That’s incredibly valuable as you now have evidence for the police. It will aid in catching the thief and give your insurance what they need to confirm the damages caused by the event. That means compensation. You no longer have to pay for the replacement of damaged or stolen goods out of your own pocket.

Security Comes in Many Forms

Maybe you don’t have the money right now for an exorbitant amount of security. That’s okay! Security comes in many forms and you don’t need all of them to lower your risk of theft. A simple commercial security camera will discourage daytime theft and provide evidence of any illegal activity in your business. No matter your business’s financial standing, there’s a form of security that’s right for you! Keep yourself and your assets safe by investing in security.

Proper Security Is So Important For Peace Of Mind.

A Great Job! to the team at Engineered Alarm Solutions for the work performed at my home. From top management to the installers, the team delivered an efficient and professional service. The installers were on time, left the grounds spotless and provided all the support necessary to operate the system. Management provided recommendations that were spot on, and I very much appreciated the honesty and knowledge provided, can't get much better than that.

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.

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...
