Private Residential Security
Come Home to Great Security
Your home is your castle and your most precious asset. It’s where you and your family feel safe, and it’s the last place you should be under threat from criminal behaviour. At Blackbird Security, our range of residential security services can be tailored to suit the unique needs of your home, protecting your family from burglaries, property crimes, and other traumatic incidents.
Why Residential Security is Important
Each year, approximately 200,000 homes across Canada are broken into. Most of these homes lack basic security measures, presenting a low-risk target for criminals, and an attractive one for crimes of opportunity.
Blackbird Security’s residential security team are standing by to assist, offering best in class security and peace of mind for you and your family. Whether you need private security for a gated community, condo complex, or single-family residence, we’ll create a tailored security plan that keeps you and your community safe and secure.

Where is Private Residential Security Used?
Our private residential security guards aren’t just for large private homes and gated communities. In fact, they’re a fantastic choice for a range of residential properties. They work to build community while keeping residents safe and secure. Here are some of the common places you’ll find our residential security guards:
Residential Mobile Patrol
Our mobile patrols can be customized to provide a level of coverage to suit any budget. Our guards can be assigned to cover routes at random intervals that will keep criminals guessing. Our Mobile Security team can be tracked in real time. This is thanks to our cutting edge TrackTik GPS monitoring technology.
Heading out of town? Our alarm monitoring team are available 24/7 with a reliable and fast response. When an alarm is triggered, our team responds within minutes, assessing the scene, addressing the cause of the alarm and providing a detailed report of their findings. No matter where you are, you’ll instantly know what triggered the alarm, and what our guards found at the scene.
On-Site Security Guard
Available on short notice, for long or short-term need, our security guards can be dispatched to provide a constant and highly visible deterrent to crime. As condo break-ins continue to spike across Canada, our guards can be deployed to monitor access points, garages and other vulnerable sites.
Hired Blackbird for their security and concierge services. I am constantly impressed at the professionalism and quality of their team. Their guards are polite, respectful and have handled stressful situations with compassion. I would recommend Blackbird to anyone looking for security solutions.General Manager, Operations and Marketing, Kevington Building Corp
We have been using Blackbird Security concierges for over 2 years at our building and I have nothing but great things to say about them. The residents have given us great feedback about the concierge personnel Blackbird has placed at the front desk and I would highly recommend this company to other stratas and property management companies.Stratawest Management Ltd.
I hired Blackbird Security several times for suit and tie client events, special open houses and concierge services. The concierge team members were always very professional and had excellent deportment. You can tell Blackbird puts a heavy emphasis on customer service training with their staff. Dealing with Blackbird for the past 5 years has been a pleasure and I will continue to use and recommend their services to other property managers and strata council members.Century 21 and The Aziz Group
