As land costs and development charges continue to rise in the city of Toronto, people are moving East of Toronto, towards Durham. Durham Region’s population now stands at 645,000. With increase in population, Durham will be able to make better use of its resources, size of markets will increase, and there will be a rise in the labour force. Though these are good returns, an increase in population comes with a big problem: overcrowding with a surge in crime rates.

Spotter Security also specializes in setting up Electromagnetic Locks (Maglocks) in industrial and corporate buildings. Maglocks do not deal with handles, levers, or door knobs on a door; a release button or fob key cuts the locks power supply. This makes these locks well suited for high security applications and best fit for emergency exit doors as they have no moving parts, therefore they are least likely to fail. When installing an electromagnetic lock (AKA maglock), make sure you get the municipality’s permit. Durham’s Building and Construction code is divided separately into its municipalities. City of Ajax charges $200.00 per maglock permit with no flat maximum cost. Where as Whitby and Oshawa offer a flat maximum at $500.00 and $672.00, respectively. Whitby charges $95.55 per maglock and Oshawa subsequently charges $134.00 per maglock.

False Security Alarms* can cost your Durham Business

Did you know that over 98% of alarms are false? Some people still think that a false alarm is better than no alarm. But that’s not the case. When an alarm goes off and police are dispatched, the Durham Regional Police charges $175.00 per false alarm. Unlike other cities, Durham Regional Police does not suspend any alarm monitoring company after multiple false alarms due to its small population. Several false alarms can still cost your business lots of money. Spotter Security can solve this problem with a fraction of that cost.

Most police services in Canada have made video verification for alarm systems mandatory, meaning that regular alarm systems simply are not cutting it for protection anymore.

Spotter puts the power back into having an alarm system by only installing video verified systems, meaning that you will get the security you need without worrying about the hassle caused by false alarms! Spotter Security can provide a video monitoring solution for your business in the Durham region that will help you increase police response time, reduce false alarms, and save you money.

*What is a Security Alarm?

Security Alarms are a system integrated into residential, commercial, industrial, military buildings, or datacenters designed to detect unauthorized access. These alarms protect properties from theft, burglary or property damage and provide personal protection against intruders. Like car alarms, security alarms show a correlation with decreased crime.
