There is a prevailing attitude amongst most people that luck will always have their backs and that good things will continue to happen in perpetuity. May the odds be ever in your favor, but the reality is that believing things will always be good because they have been in the past is a logical fallacy, and one that is dangerous to believe in. Luck favors the prepared, and if you are not prepared for something to go wrong, the consequences could be dire.
Think about safety devices in your vehicle. Seat belts were once considered a luxury upgrade to a car, and Ford did not even start offering them as an optional feature until 1955. This may seem crazy by today’s standards, because seat belts are mandatory on all public roads, but the fact is that seat belts had to become mandatory because they were so effective. Seat belts have saved millions of lives, and you would never let a family member in your car without having them firmly buckled in. It’s surprising then that so many people who are so concerned with safety don’t have a home alarm system installed or monitored in their home yet.
Over 70% of homes in Canada do not have a monitored home alarm system. This is an absolutely shocking number considering that on average in Canada a break in occurs every 2.9 minutes. Today alone there will be about 500 new break ins reported (and this does not account for break ins that are not officially reported to the police). That number is staggering, but there is some good news. The incidents of break ins has actually lowered over the past five years, which coincides with an increase in homes with security systems. While there is no definitive link in those stats, there is a definite link in who burglars target. It’s estimated that having a home security system will reduce the likelihood of a break in by up to 80%. The reason is because thieves will always target the easier home. Think about it, if you were a bad guy and you had a choice between two neighbours, one with an alarm system and one without, which home would you target?
There are many other fallacies when it comes to home break ins which shock many people.
Break ins only happen at night, right?
The fact is that most break ins actually occur during the day when homes are empty with people at work or school.
My neighbours are always home so they’ll watch my house!
Are your neighbours really so nosy that they will be watching every angle of your home all day, every day? A break in can easily occur when your neighbour is home, and they will likely have no idea that anything was wrong.
I have a big dog, so nobody is going to mess with my house!
The fact is that dogs are notoriously poor at guarding anything, much less a whole home. Dogs can be tricked with treats, they can be poisoned, they can be locked in a room, and they won’t have any way of contacting the police in an emergency. In fact, many people get a home security system as an extra layer of protection to safeguard their pets.
There are other large benefits to having a home alarm system as well, including having protection against a fire, potential energy savings with home automation devices and a home insurance discount of up to 20%. These are all important things to consider when choosing the right security system for your home and your family. The fact is though, much like using seatbelts, there really is no choice any more. You need a home alarm system.

And with our head office in Toronto, we can even get you a home alarm system by the next business day! Most people have used an home security system or a commercial security system and security cameras at some point in their lives, but not many people really understand how to keep their homes and their families safe. That is why Alarm Guard proudly provides high quality ADT Home Alarm Systems. It’s also why Alarm Guard hires security experts to help you truly keep your home safe. For easy reference, here are some home security essentials that you will need for any home security system.
Door Contacts are an essential part of any home safety system; if you have a home alarm system, you need door contacts. A door contact will in two ways. First, a door contact will put your home alarm system into a delay, which will give you time to disarm the security system when you get home. A door contact also allows you to arm your home alarm system so that all of your doors are protected at night. This means that when you go to bed, you have an added layer of protection which will help keep you and your family safe. Door contacts are essential, and they come with absolutely every home security system that Alarm Guard installs.
A motion sensor (sometimes called a PIR sensor, a motion detector or simply a motion) is also an absolutely essential piece of equipment for any home security system. A motion sensor works by picking up movement within your home (and to be completely technical, it can work to pick up an infrared signature). The technology on motion sensors has improved so much over the years that they are now pet friendly. This means that a small pet in a home is free to roam around with a pet friendly motion sensor as part of your home security system.
In fact, it’s an essential piece of equipment whether you are looking for a home alarm system or a commercial security system anywhere in Canada. This means that if you are looking for home security in Vancouver or a home alarm in Toronto, we will include a motion sensor as part of your package!
Every home alarm system that Alarm Guard will install in your home includes a keypad. A keypad is an essential part of your home alarm system for many reasons. A keypad is obviously essential to arm or disarm your home alarm system or commercial security system. But a keypad does much more than that! A keypad will usually include a very loud siren housed within the keypad, which will scare the bad guys out of your home! Your keypad can also serve as a direct connection between your home and world class ADT security monitoring. This means that the absolute best in the industry will be protecting your home 24 hours per day, 7 days a week!
Every home security system absolutely needs monitoring. Monitoring means that a staff of emergency response professionals will be keeping a close watch on your home whether you are at home or away from home. A home alarm system needs monitoring because it’s the difference between getting the authorities dispatched to your home or simply having a siren go off with nobody coming to make sure that your home is safe. Think about it, if you have a home alarm system without monitoring, there’s no way to verify if a bad guy is still in your home when you get there. Alarm Guard uses ADT alarm monitoring, which means that you will always have the absolute best monitoring in the industry. We are passionate about keeping Canadians safe. Whether you live in our home base and are looking for a security system in Toronto, or if you want a home alarm in Vancouver, Alarm Guard has you covered. We are protecting families across Canada!
