Certified by the Canadian Security Association
Panopticon Solutions is certified by the Canadian Security Association (CANASA). This is an organization that has developed industry standards and certified more than 1,300 member companies, which include the vast majority of Ontario’s security installation industry leaders.
Fire codes, low voltage regulations and other safety standards govern the installation of wiring, and all members of CANASA have been certified in the compliance of these standards. As a certifier of these standards, CANASA also oversees, through inspection, that its members adhere to them. Non-compliance with any of these safety standards result in a company’s immediate expulsion from this organization and annulment of its certification.
The “Panopticon Solutions” Way
What further distinguishes us from our competitors is the ideology that has formed the groundwork of our services. Inspired from the principles and design of eighteenth century visionary Jeremy Bentham, our company not only derives its name but also its founding ideology. Bentham proposed an architectural construct applicable to any number of public institutions, from which a lone security guard could monitory all the activities of the inmates or patients from a single location or observatory. Aptly named Panopticon (literally meaning “all seeing observer”), his concept was both practical and cost effective in that it only required the services of a single security guard. Like Bentham, we at Panopticon Solutions believe that our surveillance systems must allow our clients to be that “all seeing observer” where their property is concerned and that this should not bear the burden of great financial cost. With the use of twenty-first century technology, we have and will continue to make this a reality for current and prospective clients.
