Custom Security Solutions For Your Unique Business Needs

No two organizations' security needs are alike. 

Places of worship are different to schools, public administrative offices are different to non-profit organizations, large corporations are different to small businesses, construction sites are different to car dealerships, and retail stores are very different to warehouses.

All of these organizations are not only functionally different, but each organization has a unique location, with a series of unique security needs. It is our practice, here at Sonitrol Western Canada, to take into account all the unique security factors that go into building the best security solution possible.

Any organization is prone to unique threats based on the location, type of business, number of employees, revenue, and layout of the building … and those are just to name a few.

You have to be prepared for every eventuality. For example, workplace fire and explosions, are too often overlooked, or underestimated, when making a security plan, and workplace violence, lawsuits, and false insurance claims, can also put a significant strain on your business and security needs.

I've been writing these blog posts for many years, and I keep on saying ... "traditional intrusion security systems just aren't doing the job", partly because their technology is inadequate, partly because they don't take into account the bigger security picture.

As a result, I want all organizations to be properly informed when making an important security decision to make your business and employees safe. Doing your homework, and researching alternative security solutions, is great ... but buyer beware - there are lots of inadequate security systems out there, and the DIY solution isn't any better.

When thinking about installing a security system - you also have to be aware of the security trends and market conditions.

For example, did you know that one out of four forced entries today are through unconventional entry points, so they circumvent conventional perimeter protection?

What's more, according to the RCMP, police departments across Canada respond daily to burglar intrusion alarms. However, more than 98% of the alarms the Police attend are false. False alarms take valuable law enforcement, fire and EMS personnel away from real emergencies and make your alarm system less credible - reducing response time. As a result, there is an increasing number of towns and cities levying fines for false alarms, and a growing number of police departments won't respond without some form of alarm verification.

Our solution can help. We offer verified, modular, scalable management security solutions - including our unique audio detection verification technology - for a wide variety of organizations, including commercial, public, retail, and industrial applications.

Sonitrol has become the best way to safeguard your organization against possible crime. We can monitor access to your facility and protect it after-hours, with the most comprehensive suite of security solutions on the market.

We'll help you to consider integrating all the best security options into a specific security plan, uniquely developed for your company. We can recommend everything, from installing a panic button for quick police dispatch when an employee is under duress - using managed access control panels to monitor weekend, and after-hours employees, contractors, and visitors - installing Day/Night cameras for round-the-clock video monitoring both indoors and outside - to incorporating water-flow sensors with your fire detection products in the event of a flood or plumbing problems.

With this vast experience of implementing security systems into thousands of uniquely different organizations, and with our access to the best security technology, Sonitrol has developed unique corporate security solutions for business customers like you, across Western Canada.
