Secure Your Home

Break-ins can be devastating. A person’s home is their sanctuary, a place where they feel safe at peace with the world. However, if they become the victim of a break-in, then not only does it have a devastating and not only in the financial sense but also in the psychological sense. A person’s faith in their own home’s security becomes broken and it takes a long time to fix that.

One thing that we all need to understand is that when it comes to securing your home, hiding a key under a rock or your doormat is a sure-fire way to let the burglars in. Even an inexperienced burglar learns the signs once they start working in the business and as such, if we do not take proper steps to secure our homes, we become easier targets. So here, we have a few pointers to help you secure your home properly with the help of some tips from a trusted security company in Calgary.

·         Understand the Rules

Learning about home security would be a proper start to the situation. Gather your family and tell them what they should do in case of a break-in. Children especially can become quite frightened in these situations so it’s always best to let them know what to do.

·         Secure the Smaller Ways

Smaller entrances to your home such as windows or doggy doors should be secured properly. Lock the windows and secure the small doors so that there is no way of entering the house without a key.

·         Stop Showing Off

Even though you want to show off your brand new car, if you don’t want it stolen, it’s better to be secure about it. Similarly, if you have a new car, park it in the garage instead of the drive way. Since robbers case the neighborhood before they rob it, your car can catch their attention.

·         Hiding Your Keys

We all keep a key handy if we forget our original one somewhere. Because of the media, everyone knows how a key can be hidden. Small pots, fake rocks, doormats, all of these become useless. Instead, what you can do is give your key to a trusted neighbor so that it stays safe.

·         Flood Lights

This is a very useful trick. Many people install outdoor lighting with motion sensors and keep it pointed to the spots of entry. If the camera sees any movement, the light turns on, thus panicking any would-be burglar in the act.

·         Secure air-conditioning Units

Window air conditioners are very easy to open and slide out if they are not properly secured. Its better to spend some money on a sliding window lock or an air conditioner bracket instead of just giving the burglar any easy passage in.

·         Getting the Right Security System

When choosing a security system, go for one which also promises private protection. Security companies in Calgary have many services for business and homes alike, and along with a security system, if you want extra protection, you can also hire a static guard who knows how to handle a situation if the time comes.

So now that you know about these little tips, you can know more about security systems and services by going to our website.

We used 365 Patrol for a temporary work site in Calgary that needed nightly and weekend security for approx 2 months. We were very pleased with the service, and they exceeded our expectations. Mohamed and his team were professional, punctual everyday and even offered extra security ideas to make our site extra secure. Their rates were very reasonable and we will definitely use them again. Highly recommended.

We organize an annual outdoor festival and 365 Patrol was hands down the best security service we have worked with! Mohamed did a full site walk through with us and helped us identify the best areas to place the guards. For both nights, all guards were on time, professionally dressed and were super friendly. Mohamed was professional and very easy to communicate with for the duration of working together. I couldn't be more pleased with 365 Patrol and will definitely be hiring them again next year.

Excellent communication and attention to detail - 365 Patrol really stepped up for our condo board and owners, even while our property management company fell on their face. Thank you Mohammed!

I used this guard service for a very important client that we were unable to provide security for at the last minute. I called Mohamed Siad late last night after calling many other guard service companies that were not able to provide a guard for us at such short notice. Mohamed was very professional and followed up with me this morning to make sure everything went smoothly. The guard that he dispatched arrived early to site and called me to confirm what we were needing him to do. He called me again this morning to check with me before he left site. I would highly recommend this guard service to anyone! Their customer service will exceed your expectations!

Very impressed with 365 Patrol, they were very good to deal with, professional and responsive. They showed up on time and gave us a great rate on their service! We ended up switching security companies this year and were very happy with the decision. We will definitely use them again!

We needed a security guard at the last minute. 365 Patrol was the ONLY company of the many that were called that responded in a timely manner to our request. We asked for a plain clothes guard to arrive the next morning. People come and go from our building at random times all day long and we required the guard to be the official greeter at the door as he was screening people. He was polite and unobtrusive. When not busy, he was engaging and pleasant with staff and endeavoured to fit in with the surroundings so that it was less apparent that we had a guard in the building that day. I would highly recommend 365 Patrol and would not hesitate to use their services in the future.

365 Patrol was great to work with. The security guard who looked after our event was great: always early and focused on watching over our event equipment. We were able to make changes to the security times needed last minute, which was very helpful. We will definitely use them for our future events.

At our annual event we needed a security company to look after our equipment and tents during the night. We hired 365 patrol and were very pleased with the professionalism and service they provided. We found it was very easy to communicate with them and they were able to work with our tight deadline. We highly recommend them and will continue to using them going forward.

We recently worked with Mohamed and 365 Patrol on an over night job for an outdoor event we were planning. Not only were they professional and accommodating, they were absolutely wonderful to deal with during the planning process. They showed up early, checked in before they left, gave me a progress report and then their main office followed up after the event to ensure things had gone smoothly. I will be using them again and would recommend them to anyone looking for security services.

We found them very curtious, friendly and professional and would highly recommend this company.I have worked in other buildings where the security guards seemed unapproachable or lazy, and am very happy to say that this is not the case with this company at all. I would highly recommend them and will be referring anyone who is looking for a good security company to them.

A very professional security company. They were able to dispatch their guards in less than an hour as promised. Their guards were fully uniformed which I really liked. I would definitely call them again in the future.

We called 365 Patrol on rather short notice, Mohamed was more than accommodating. He arranged the guys and they were here on time and prepared. 365 Patrol will definitely be our only choice next time.

365 got me out of a terrible bind! When our office fire panel stopped working and I was told we would need to have someone in the building 24/7 to do fire watch until it was fixed, I panicked. It was 3pm in the afternoon and staff were getting ready to leave for the day so I didn’t know how I was going to find someone to stay in the building overnight. Luckily, Google helped me find 365 and I was able to get a guard to our building by the time we were closing at 5pm. The guards were friendly and professional. When we did have building emergencies arise, the guards were very considerate of my time and polite when they called me for assistance. All in all I was very pleased with the service and would use them again (although I’m really hoping for no more issues where I would require guard service)! :)

My condo building needed security services following a break and enter. 365 Patrol was called after 10pm and they had a guard at my building and actively patroling by midnight. The guard was professional and the service/communication was excellent. Out of three "24 hr" security companies called that night, 365 was the only one who called back.
