If you are a wholesaler or a large retailer, you know that considerable capital can be tied up in stock or inventory. The reputation of your business depends on maintaining the quality of products that are being stored - from unexpected disasters like flooding or even from vandalism. Not to mention protecting your assets from theft. In addition to loss of product, not having sufficient inventory can cause upheaval with your clients that count on the availability of product for their business.

Owners that have been in business for awhile and never had a security incident or break-in are going against the average. Commercial vandalism and theft is an on-going problem. They may have a false sense of security because they installed a traditional security system years ago.

But, traditional security systems are limited by the size and layout of a warehouse or distribution centre. Even with multiple motion sensors to protect each door, aisle or row of goods, vulnerabilities still exist in the ceilings and walls —increasingly popular entry points for would-be thieves

Sonitrol is the next generation commercial security system. Using our unique verified audio detection technology, one Sonitrol sensor can cover 5,000 square feet. Strategically placed audio sensors provide floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall coverage — ideal for distribution centres of any size.

We’re the leader in verified electronic security, and we’ve created systems specifically tailored to meet the needs of warehouses and distribution centres. Using our patented audio detection process, dispatches for false alarms are a thing of the past.

Our systems are modular, so your solution can be fully customized. A fully integrated solution can include verified audio intrusion detection, managed access control, verified video surveillance, fire detection, and 24/7 central station monitoring by trained professionals.

Why purchase a Sonitrol security solution for your warehouse?

  • Our Sonitrol Warehouse and Distribution Centre Security Solution doesn't just record break-ins and theft, we also immediately alert the police and they will respond to catch the intruders!  
  • Our unique Sonavision Solution verified video, monitors the perimeter and interior of the Warehouse and Distribution Centre and is activated by highly sensitive audio, motion and heat controls to detect thieves.
  • Our verified Warehouse and Distribution Centre security solution is better than having expensive guards, who can sleep through the night or even leave the site, so we have developed programmable video guard tours as an alternate solution.
  • We can give video access for your own supervision (WCB compliant), so you can record shipments and deliveries and watch job progress and day-to-day work.
  • We provide extra security using active audio and door contacts


The large size and complex layout of warehouses and distribution centres mean they are vulnerable to both professional criminals and internal theft - but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any solutions. 

Sonitrol is the leading solution because our systems are built with the latest technology, and our expert staff will customize the best plan for your business. Here is what our customers say..

"Your monitoring staff heard this thief as he started to break into our facility. They dispatched RCMP, who responded in force and were on-site within 2 minutes." Phil Shafer, Enermax Mountain Manufacturing Ltd.

"The RCMP referred us to your company two years ago, after experiencing repeat false alarms and break-ins with our conventional alarm provider. As you promised, on installation of your Sonitrol intrusion system our false alarms and break-ins ceased." Steven W Malkowich Jr, Publisher, Now
