Do I Really Need a Security System?

Originally posted on 15 November 2020

Homeowners and renters would be truly astonished to see the statistics on home burglaries across Canada. Not surprisingly, many avoid thinking about a security system in Toronto until being personally affected – and that might be considered too little too late.

Simply put, a security system will protect the family, roommates, and personal possessions. There’s no question that this one of the more potent deterrents to home burglaries. And the statistics confirm the outcomes – burglars are deterred by security systems.

While commercial security systems are typically greater in number than home systems, it’s still surprising how few homes have a security system. The good news is that more and more people are choosing to install some type of system as a preventive measure.

Deciding on Installing a Home Security System

The main reason for investing in a home security system is to prevent crime. Industry statistics show that most burglars turn away when encountering either a burglar alarm or a security system. On the flip side, homes without any security are easy prey for an experienced home burglar.

For many, the cost of a security system in Toronto might be somewhat daunting. After all, there are product costs, installation costs, and monthly costs. All things considered, this is very much like an insurance policy – hope you never have to use it, but one time makes it worthwhile.

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...
