If you need an alarm system for your home or business, the process should be as straightforward as possible. Why deal with multiple service providers when what you need can be handled by just one?
Certain companies will install an alarm system for you, but they don’t provide ongoing monitoring or response service. Others may respond to your call, but they can’t service or upgrade your alarm system; Norpro has deep understanding of the technology component.
One local business stands alone in that it offers all three elements of a typical residential or commercial alarm system: installation, monitoring and response. Not only can they install the physical alarm equipment—or take over whatever existing equipment you may already have in place—they also monitor your alarms and provide an expert response.
“We are the only local company does all three,” says Allan Watson, AVP, Norpro Company Canada. “We are responsible for the technology, monitoring and response end-to-end.”
What are the advantages of having every aspect of your security system managed by one local security company in Sault Ste. Marie?
To start, there is a lower total cost of ownership. It costs less to supply and install a brand-new alarm system, and they have the expertise to take over and streamline any existing system, says Watson.
Norpro is also open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, every day of the year, including Christmas. Their command centre is local, and they dispatch their own response team.
Service, maintenance and expansion are all made easier when you’re dealing with one company. If at any point you decide you need an additional panel, want your garage updated, or want to add cameras or digital door locks, their team can help. Their local technicians can make any additions, changes and modifications. It is literally a one-call service.
The technology division of Norpro has extensive expertise, having worked with the aerospace industry in the US, boards of education and health centres and across First Nations communities in Ontario. They’re proud to bring this wealth of knowledge to the residential market in Sault Ste. Marie.
With more than 40 years’ experience, Norpro did much of its growth outside of Sault Ste. Marie. This helped position them as leaders in the fields of technology and security. “We’re bringing a level of expertise to our residential clients that was developed from solving different, complex problems on the commercial level,” says Watson.
Norpro has one of the largest patrol fleets in Ontario, with over 40 vehicles and 180 licensed guards. They operate in Sudbury, Thunder Bay, Nipigon, Marathon, North Bay, Toronto and internationally in the United States.
Business for Norpro has increased since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, as more and more people have moved into work-from-home environments. The company has seen an increase in demand for all of their services, including their IT and health and safety branches. Their facilities cleaning team has been busier than ever ensuring proper disinfection and cleaning protocol management.
This combination of key services illustrates the company’s holistic approach. They’ve thought of everything, making home security as seamless as possible.
