Quality and Affordable Security Cameras in Markham and the GTA

Affordable Lock is your one stop shop for all of your security needs. From our residential and commercial locksmith services to our high end security products you can rest assured knowing your home or business is safe. We sell security cameras in Markham, and we can install and repair security cameras in any of the brands we carry.


Choosing to install a security camera at your Markham home or business will help increase your peace of mind through video surveillance. Not only do visible security cameras help deter thieves, they also offer you other benefits at home and at your place of work.


  • At Home:
    • Save money on your insurance because some insurance companies offer discounts for security systems and cameras.
    • Monitor pets, small children and guests in your home to make sure everyone is safe, behaving appropriately when you’re away and not abusing your kindness in any way.
  • At Your Business:
    • Reduce theft by customers and employees.
    • Improve business operations and safety by seeing how your employees work, determining if you are over/understaffing and monitoring employee breaks.
    • Discourage false accident claims because everything has been recorded.
    • Boost your productivity by having more time to spend on work instead of directly monitoring your employees.

Choosing the Right Security Camera for Your Needs

Whether you’re interested in protecting your home or your business, you’ll want to make sure you get the right security camera for your needs. There are several types of security cameras to choose from, each with their own benefits.


  • Infrared (IR) security cameras: These cameras offer high resolution colour video during the day, perfect for low light conditions. They can illuminate dark areas by switching from colour to black and white, they’re great indoors or outdoors and they can be weatherproofed.
  • Bullet cameras: These are the most common security cameras. They are, cylindrical and can resemble a tube of lipstick or a soda can. These are great if you know exactly where you want camera coverage; they can be wall or ceiling mounted and left to do their job.
  • Dome cameras: These cameras are ceiling-mounted and come in a variety of formats including IR, indoor, outdoor, vandal proof and “pan title zoom” controllable. They have clear colour and high resolution as well.
  • Pro box cameras: These are most commonly found in banks, supermarkets and convenience stores. They have interchangeable lenses based on viewing angle and zoom. They offer day and night options which allow for colour film in the day and black and white at night, and they allow vision in complete darkness.
  • Live streaming cameras: These cameras are ideal for remote, unmanned monitoring. They can sit on a piece of furniture, and are designed to feed a signal directly to a computer or mobile device for live viewing. Some can also pan, tilt and scan by remote control.
  • Hidden cameras: Hidden cameras help you monitor an area without potential thieves knowing, which can be helpful with recurring problems at your restaurant or office. These cameras are designed to look like something else, such as a smoke detector, so no one knows you’re watching.
  • Wireless cameras: Wireless cameras have become very popular, as they are easily integrated into existing home automation systems, and many offer you extra control through apps and online viewing.


When choosing a security camera for your Markham home or business you’ll want to consider the level of image resolution you’ll be getting and the viewing angle of the lens. If you know exactly where you want the camera to be looking, a bullet camera or a live streaming camera are perfect, but if you’ll be wanting several views from one camera then you’ll want to consider dome cameras and “pan tilt zoom” cameras that can be adjusted.


One of the most important features you’ll want in your home security camera is night vision as many crimes happen after dark. Motion detection is another feature that is very helpful, but not all security cameras come with this feature.
