When Customer Work Together with Security Companies in Toronto, Everyone Saves Time and Money
Whenever security companies in Toronto install hardware and software at a customer’s location, they’ll always do their best to prevent any problems from occurring in the future. The problem, of course, is that, in the long run, there are probably going to be technical issues.
On-site technical support calls are a big problem for security companies in Toronto, as well as their customers. For customers, it means waiting around all day for a technician to show up, whose arrival could be delayed for a wide variety of reasons. For security companies, it’s an extremely expensive venture. They’re paying for the worker, vehicle, gas, and any tools used. Further, that worker is being taken away from other jobs, which may get delayed as a result.
In short, on-site technical support often means wasting a lot of time and money, for both the customer and the security company. However, there is an alternative – remote support.
How Remote Support Fixes Your Issues Quickly and Easily
Thanks to modern technology, there are more tools than ever to help homeowners and their security companies find and fix problems with the equipment, without requiring an on-site visit from technicians. Tools such as FaceTime and WhatsApp go beyond standard telephone technical support, allowing owners and technicians to collaborate to fix problems.
For example – if there’s a problem with your security wall panel, you don’t have to try to describe the problem over the phone. You can simply hold up your phone to the panel, and let the technician see it for themselves through the video connection. That makes it so much more convenient than older voice-only technical support.
When a customer is willing to spend a few minutes working with a remote technician, they can usually resolve the situation together in short order. It requires far less time for the customer and costs their security company far less money in support costs. This sort of collaborative remote troubleshooting is truly a win-win situation for everyone involved.

Purchasing A Home Security System In The GTA?
We get it. Convenience helps when it comes to juggling careers, homes and all kinds of other distractions. It’s why so many homeowners in the GTA are happy to get quotes over the phone when they think about purchasing a home security system. We believe this isn’t the most sensible thing to do though, for a number of reasons.
Ask yourself a few questions
Getting an over-the-phone quote may be quicker and more convenient, of course, but you need to evaluate whether it is accurate or adequate. An accurate quote takes into account everything you need security for in the GTA, as well as what kind of home security system you can have. Here are a couple of questions you need to ask yourself, answers to which can effectively lead to a more accurate quote.
1. How finished is your house? This is important when it comes to hiding wiring because a professionally installed home security system does not reveal any wires. An on-site quote will allow you to determine the most efficient and cost-effective way of installing a neat security system.
2. What do you need security for? Is this just to detect burglary, or to cover floods, fires and changes in temperature? An on-site quote can make sure the security cover is adequate for your specific needs.
3. Do you have children or pets? This affects how and when you use the home security system, and whether pets wandering around your home need to be taken into consideration. A quote over the phone may not take these things into account.
4. What sort of home security system would you like? Do you want it to send signals by phone or wireless? Do you want to avoid using a landline? Do you want something easy to use or with bells and whistles depending on how technology-savvy you are? An on-site quote will consider all of these responses.
Purchasing a home security system in the GTA is about making an informed decision because it is an important one. If you have a better understanding of your needs, you can get professionals to help you figure out what works best for you.

A Guide to Achieving Home Security in the GTA for the Holidays
It’s the time of the year when thousands of homeowners are considering travel plans to cities across the country and abroad. It’s important to maintain security at home during this important time. Our team at Lynden Security Systems has many years’ experience and we’re highlighting how to achieve home security in the GTA for the holidays.
Make Sure Windows and Doors are Locked
One mistake homeowners often make is leaving windows and doors unlocked when they go away. This is a particular issue when it comes to locking windows, as very few homeowners check this area of their property before they go away. Make sure you complete a perimeter check and ensure that windows and doors are completely locked before your travel away from the home.
Check the Monitoring System
Many homeowners are now using monitoring systems to protect their property. If you have an alarm and monitoring structure, coordinate with your alarm company to make sure that they are receiving a signal from the system before you leave. Ask that your alarm company provide you with detailed reporting on the system and any events in and around the home.
Check Contact Information
For the holidays, ensure your GTA home security company is using the most up to date contact details for your family. Ask that they provide you with clear instructions on the steps to take if an incident takes place in your home.
Ask Neighbours to Pick Up Mail
Make sure that the home looks occupied while you’re away. This means picking up the mail outside the home and setting lights to automatically turn on at specific times of the day. This will limit the chances of an intruder choosing your home to break into during the holidays.
