Whether you are a small business with a one room store, or a large corporation with an industrial complex and multiple locations, Graydon Security will customize a security system built specifically for your needs. Our systems offer the latest technology in site security, access control, web-based video solutions, environmental sensors, and fire alarms. 

Honeywell Lyric Alarm System
DSC Neo Alarm System

Imagine being able to interact with your alarm system from the other side of the city, country or even world! This exciting new technology allows you to arm or disarm, check on the status and receive alarms and notifications from your system directly on your smartphone, tablet or computer as long as you can access the internet. But that's only the beginning. Interactive web control can

  • Turn lights on and off
  • View and control thermostats
  • Unlock doors
  • Allow you to view live video of your premises

It’s never been easier to integrate your security and these enhanced features, to allow your alarm system to truly complement your professional lifestyle as well as your security. You may want to confirm your employee opened the store on time, or that the security system is armed and lights are turned off at the end of the day and should it have been forgotten, your system can do it for you as a scheduled event.
Ask us about creative solutions such as scheduled lighting controls, or even just linked to your alarm status. We are here to create and implement creative solutions to meet your needs.

Digital Video is changing the modern security landscape. The advent of HD-quality digital video that followed the analog-to-IP systems changed how we see images and how they are used in protecting businesses.

Wide angles and high resolution allow us to capture more with fewer cameras, and streaming video has allowed it all to happen in real time.

Video Verification is where live and recorded video is immediately used in the event of an alarm to verify if there is a physical response needed. This could  prevent the loss of expensive goods from a construction site or work yard as the intruders will be detected while still on site and not just the next day when it is too late.

Video Analytics is where software built into the camera itself can now identify a person or vehicle and ignore everything else. “Between the hours of 7:00PM and 7:00AM, send notification if a vehicle or person enters the compound” is now possible, and while it may record everything else, your system only notifies you when the assigned rule is met. Example of Video Analytics

The best evidence is always catching the act in progress, not the next day when the damage is already done, and all you have is a picture of limited value.

In the commercial sector, Digital Video is now evolving to be about site safety, accountability, and due diligence against liability in a way that makes it as much a management tool as it was just a security tool in the past. Let us show you how to get the most out of your investment.

Smartphone, tablets, and browser access have changed who and how we use video, and will only continue to drive innovation. Graydon Security is committed to helping you integrate innovation into your security.

Keyless Entry is about removing physical keys and using codes, cards, or tags to electrically unlock doors and gain entry. This is perfect for commercial buildings where several employees may enter the building at different times and you have no need of schedules or recording who used the system.

Access Control is about adding intelligence to a keyless entry system to control and know who goes where and when within your operations and/or property. An Access Control System is able to not just unlock a door and permit entry, but to check authorization by time and date, and then record the event to an audit trail available through the software.

Access control doors typically are installed with a reader, a door contact to determine the door status (open or closed), a request to exit (permits egress without alarm), and an electric lock or mechanism by which to lock and unlock the door by valid user request or a schedule.  The system is supervised by a module that controls each entry point and which can be networked together along with other doors to act in concert or independently in the same building or on multiple sites.

Integrated Access Control now adds further forms of access restriction such as vehicle barrier gates, turnstiles, and personnel traps (interlocking doors), and are often linked with integrated video systems that also record all access control events on IP cameras.

Graydon Security has extensive experience from simple keyless entry all the way up to integrated high security in government, commercial, and industrial environments.

Be it a single door you want to have keyless entry added to, or an entire industrial complex that you need accountability of who is on-site including vehicle barriers and a roll call of all personnel on-site at a given time, we can design, build, install, and service your system to whatever your needs.

Panasonic has developed a full line of telecom products meant to offer you the very best of all worlds both big and small. We can configure:

Custom Homes: Installing a Panasonic phone system in your new custom home can allow us to integrate a full hands-free intercom throughout the house including front door or gate. You can even link systems via a broadband connection to link two homes remotely to the same phone system.

Scalable Platforms: We can configure the telephone system from a small business to the largest industrial or commercial venture and remotely link multiple sites under one common system.

Wireless Platforms: Panasonic offers one of the most comprehensive wireless options that allow us to deploy mini-cell sites to your premises to allow wireless connectivity to outside lines, intercom, and even remote sites. The ability to travel across your premises and always be connected to your phone system without the expense of cellular.

No telephone line? No problem. Many of our clients are cancelling telephone services to their homes or properties in favour of a broadband connection. We will have you covered and have two options available.

IP monitoring through your home/business internet connection
This technology allows us to monitor your security system through your home or business internet connection. This can be  wifi or hardwired connection. This connection allows you the use of the Total Connect or Alarm.com app for remote control of your system including viewing of video recorded on site. Phone/Internet cables can still be cut (intentionally, or accidentally) leaving your premise without active monitoring. Should your home broadband router not be thoroughly backed up with battery back-up, you will lose the internet when power is out, and thus your connection to the outside world. 

GSM cellular monitoring
We do however suggest that for security and safety reasons, you consider allowing us to use a cellular communicator to transmit signals to and from the central station, mainly because of their reliability against physical line cuttings of your phone or internet connections, but also for their advantage in the event of a power outage. The cellular communicators are equipped with a back-up battery allowing for monitoring services hours into a power outage.

A Graydon cellular back-up will be your only link to emergency services in a power outage, at precisely the time you need it most. It’s a digital service (not voice) using the cellular network infrastructure of major providers, and represents only a small added monthly charge, typically no more then $15.00. This fee we forward to the network provider (Telus/Bell/Rogers) for access to their network on your behalf. Still far less than an actual telephone line would cost you, and far better security level. These cellular data services are what enable much of the interactivity to your alarm from your smartphone.

Get smart, cut the cord and save. But at the same time get more out of your alarm system with a cell back-up.
