Why Commercial Security Alarm Systems Are So Important

Originally posted on 14 May 2021

In the past year, savvy business owners have installed new commercial or retail security systems in Toronto at their workplace. With fewer hours on-site, workplaces without modern security systems can be at risk from a laundry list of accidents and emergencies at any time of day.

Security system installation can provide you with much-needed peace of mind. Your business is not just a job — it represents many hours of careful planning and investment and deserves professional protection against the unknown.

Why a Commercial Security System in Toronto is Recommended

Even the most basic security system has a significant impact on your business’s safety. Not only can security systems lower your insurance and give peace of mind to investors, but they’re also a valuable tool for your day-to-day operations. At Engineered Alarms, we like to recommend a security system installation to:

  • Prevent and deter vandalism, theft, and break-and-enter crime
  • Provide 24/7 security monitoring
  • Stay connected with your site  — even when away on holiday or a business trip
  • Monitor customers or employees via video monitoring systems

Why Security Systems Are Necessary During the Pandemic

The coronavirus pandemic has fundamentally changed the way we work — and once-busy workplaces are now much quieter. This drop in traffic has lead to an increase in break-ins and other opportunistic crimes. During the pandemic, a new commercial security system is an easy way to:

  • Have trained security professionals on standby to help monitor and alert you to potential emergencies, like fires, floods, burglaries, and more.
  • Detect false alarms. Is it a real emergency or just something that’s fallen over? We can help identify false alarms using video surveillance and alert authorities when it’s not.
  • Have aid dispatched —  no matter where you are or whether you’re able to respond.
  • Have peace of mind. Even if you can’t get there quickly, our team is poised for swift action.

What A Security Alarm System Can Protect You Against

While the most common reason for security system installation is to prevent break-ins and theft, the truth is that a security system does so much more. Regardless of what type of services your business provides, a brick and mortar shop can gain a lot from even the most basic security systems and help prevent:

  • Burglary
  • Shoplifting
  • Vandalism
  • Legal issues
  • Unauthorized access or trespass
  • Employee safety
  • Fire, flood, or other disasters

Installing a Commercial Security System Doesn’t Have to Be Difficult

At Engineered Alarms, our goal is simple: make security straightforward and simple. Whether you’re looking to secure a warehouse, small business, or office block, our expertly-trained security professionals design and install commercial security systems in Toronto that suit your unique needs. To speak with a technician about security system installation and learn about our competitive pricing and range of services, pick up the phone and call 416-697-7329.

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.

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...
