To improve the safety and security of your home, the Halton Regional Police Service (HRPS) recommends installing a home security or alarm system.

Why Install a Security System?

A security system that uses sensors attached to doors and windows can activate an alarm if an unwanted person enters your home. When used with additional door locks and other window security devices, a security system provides another layer security to your home.

A security system also provides a greater peace of mind if you must leave the house for an extended period of time.

Helpful Tips

When deciding on a home security or alarm system, we recommend you keep the following in mind:

  • If you have family members who enter and leave your home throughout the day, look at a coded system versus a keyed system.
  • Pets can cause false alarms if you have motion sensors inside your home.
  • A system connected to a central monitoring station can quickly alert police if the alarm is activated.
  • Use indoor or outdoor cameras that can be connected to your smart phone so you can see and record what is happening while you are away.
  • Make sure you speak with reputable alarm companies to determine which system is right for you.
