Toronto is often regarded by Canadians as one of Canada’s safest cities. Evidence suggests, however, that senses of security are almost always illusionary. This is why the Pros will always outweigh the Cons of investing in a smart and reliable home security system.

Thankfully, with a smart, total home security system, you can better protect your family, home, and business, wherever in Toronto you might be located.

Closed circuit television cameras work as an effective deterrent to crime. Much more importantly, a CCTV security system is an effective way to gather evidence against perpetrators of crime, in order to help identify culprits and later prosecute them in a Toronto court of law.
Access Control Systems
Any modern security system needs to be equipped with state-of-the-art access control software which allows users to control and monitor their system as easily and as conveniently as possible. This is why we equip people investing in new security systems with a variety of innovative and easy to use access control system options.
Automatic door openers
In Canada, at least 1 in 7 people live with some kind of disability. Thankfully, people with personal mobility problems can still benefit from total home security and ease of access to their properties. This is because even the most robust security system can feature accessibility features such as mobile access controls and automatic door openers.
The best home or business security system in Toronto will always be one which can detect fires thanks to heat and smoke sensors, as well as just property intruders. This way, a security system will work while you are sleeping, in residence, and away from your property, to detect threats and notify relevant authorities accordingly.
Motion detectors can be used as a powerful tool to detect intruders in a property and stop crime in its tracks as it happens. Our own Toronto security systems can subsequently be configured to alert you and authorities to any unauthorized presence in your home or place of business as soon as a presence is detected.
Carbon Monoxide Detection
Carbon monoxide is a silent and surprisingly common threat to home and business owners all across Canada. In fact, using gas heaters without adequate ventilation in winter is itself one of the leading causes of carbon monoxide poisoning. Thankfully, a smart security system can help neutralize threats by immediately alerting property owners to problems.

Great ways to keep your home safe is to take simple actions to deter burglars from wanting to target your home in the first place. Burglars are attracted to darkness and overgrown trees and bushes because these provide them with the cloak that they need to avoid detection from neighbors and bystanders. By ensuring that your neighborhood and home are adequately lit, then you are deterring burglars from targeting your home. Another home security tip is to provide that your tools are secure inside your house rather than the shed or the garage because the burglar can utilize these tools to break into your home.
A wireless home security system is powered by batteries and includes a set of security tools to form a kit. Infrared waves, radio waves or line carriers are used within these systems to create a line of communication between components. You need to understand how these work and whether they suit your needs before purchasing one. The systems of today are straightforward to install as some of them only require plugins. The wireless sensors are then placed correctly, and the signals can successfully be communicated.
The presence of a home security system reduces your chances of having your home burglarized a great deal. When you have a sign and window stickers that indicate that your home is armed with a high-level protection system, it is guaranteed that a burglar will think twice before attempting to invade your home.
Operating a home security system is very simple. Most work with a simple touch or switch flip system. This is pretty similar to turning the lights on and off. What makes it more advanced is the motion detector of the security system that will be activated when a door or window is opened.
A base unit is utilized to communicate with the other wireless modules linked to the wireless security cameras. The cameras get connected to the base using a radio frequency that is sent out. Each wireless home security camera comes with a battery. Output mechanism linked to the receiver will either function on batteries or electricity.After power is sent to the base unit and the cameras, sound and images are moved to the receiver from the camera. The receiver outputs everything from the camera to an attached monitor, DVD recorder, TV or VCR.
When it comes to examining the cost of your home security, you should know that there are two avenues available to you. You have the option of going with a discount home security system and perhaps only having it installed on the windows and doors that you perceive to be high-risk invasion points in your home. You can decide to piece together your residential alarm system from different burglar alarm components and installing them yourself.
It depends on your needs! We all have different needs, and different home security systems can help satisfy those needs. Also, no single home security system is best to secure your home. Most security experts suggest that you mix different systems to come up with one efficient and fool-proof system.
Never place a camera in an area where someone visiting or working would have a reasonable assumption of privacy such as a bedroom and course bathroom. You can set a camera in the sitting room or the corridors of the house.
Place a camera outdoors naturally; you need to consider near the power source. To produce a decent image, it needs adequate light to capture the subject. You need to place your camera where light is sufficient.
The following are several questions you can ask while purchasing a home security system.Do you need security doors for my home? Should you buy a wood, iron, or steel front door? What else can you do to keep my house secure? Aren’t home security doors expensive?
Lighting is a crucial tool in keeping your home safe and secure. The bad guys like to hide and not be seen, so they do not like lights giving away their position. In addition to high lighting, you have to keep your good stuff out of sight.
Some people love to flaunt they valuables, so they leave the windows open so anyone can see in. Make sure that your curtains are shut so no one can see in. This will keep the crooks guessing if someone is home. Now all you have to do is add some sounds to make them think.
Most burglars want to get your stuff and get out as quick as possible. If they hear some sounds coming from your house, then they will most likely leave. Most do not want any confrontations because that means that most likely the police will show up. They are very wary of dog sounds. So you could have a motion detection light hooked up to some dog barking sounds. They will most likely pass up the chance to get your stuff.
Or have someone pick them up daily. Nothing says to a thief this is an empty house like newspapers and mail piling up and that means they will not be caught.
These are plugged into the wall and then lamps, televisions and radios can be connected into them and set to turn on and off at certain times. This will give the appearance that the family is at home.
This is something that should be done each season. Check all the door and window locks and replace any that are not in good working order.
Enough that no one can see in, when you are home, this way when no one is at home it will not seem out of place. It will also keep the thief from getting a look at televisions, stereos, laptops and anything else that they might want.
Both of these things will take away hiding places for the person that is planning on breaking into the house.
I was near broke and I thought that it was going to cost me a small fortune to have my locks changed and home alarm upgraded at short notice. Thankfully, it didn’t. IGTA really helped me out and I’m really appreciative of all his help upgrading my home alarm system. Yan from Forestry Kitchens
If you need down to Earth security advice without a hard sales pitch, IGTA is your man. Walked through our property, gave us advice which made sense, and started work the same day helping us better secure our business. Exactly what we needed.
We had no idea how behind the times we were with regard to our home security. IGTA and his team, however, pointed out all of our weak spots to us and were able to advise us on the most affordable way to keep our home better protected. We feel much more secure now and after being the victim of a break-in, this is such a relief.
I was advised several times to have at least a dummy CCTV system fitted in our store and in retrospect, I should have listened. IGTA team, though, were both understanding of our situation and more than happy to help fit the kind of security system we should have had much earlier. I can’t recommend highly enough.
Need spare keys? After support when you forget how to arm your system right before the weekend? At first, I felt a little intimidated by our new home alarm system. IGTA and his team, though, have been superstars at accommodating me in regard to (my many) questions and direct support needs post installation. Very happy.
