Why Choose a Security System in Toronto with Microphone Technology

Why Choose a Security System in Toronto with Microphone Technology

When you are building a security system in Toronto, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. While many out-of-the-box security cameras come with standard features, you can tailor your security design to meet the unique requirements of your property when you work with a reputable service provider like Engineered Alarm Solutions Inc. Moreover, out-of-the-box security cameras can easily be hacked to trigger false notifications compromising security. With professionally installed cameras, technicians can program and calibrate them to minimize false alarms. A microphone and loudspeaker (2-way audio) are a popular but often overlooked feature of residential and commercial security cameras in Toronto. For more info about why you should consider microphone and loudspeaker technology, talk to our friendly and knowledgeable team of security specialists at Engineered Alarm Solutions Inc. 

Read on to learn more about why choosing a security system in Toronto with microphone technology is a great choice for property owners.

Audio Detection of Intruders

While residential and commercial security cameras cannot detect activity solely on audio cues alone, they significantly enhance your ability to assess and monitor a situation unfolding on your property in real time allowing you to take appropriate action. With real-time notifications and alerts to your smart device and to your 24-hour monitoring station, two-way audio allows you to hear what is happening on the premises so you can contextualize the situation. If there is simply someone on-site checking your water meter or leaving a delivery, you will better be able to gauge the situation by hearing what they are up to before local authorities are dispatched. This audio insight can help prevent false alarms and costly security guard dispatch. If you are concerned about suspicious activity around your property, microphones and loudspeakers allow you to communicate freely. 

Deterrence Through Loudspeakers

When a suspicious activity is detected by your alarm or camera systems, or you notice something suspicious - like someone trying to enter your property, steal a vehicle, or snatch something valuable from your building, loudspeakers allow you or your monitoring station to speak to the person in question in real-time, letting them know that authorities have been notified and you can see them. To ensure that a criminal on your property is aware that this is actually a live feed, you or your monitoring station can call out what they’re doing and even the clothes they’re wearing. For added attention, you can also consider a strobe light. In this case, loudspeakers can help deter imminent theft or intrusion when paired with reliable commercial security cameras in Toronto.

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.

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...
