Monitored Smoke Detectors Provide Greater Protection


November 9, 2010

Did you know that you can integrate smoke detectors and other types of alerts with monitored alarm systems to better safeguard your home?

Having a monitored alarm system with smoke detectors on every floor of your house can save precious seconds and minutes in the event of a fire. NON-monitored smoke detectors provide little value to you if you are not home: by the time anybody notices that your house in on fire, smoke is probably billowing out of your windows and it is likely that your home, pets and possessions will be lost.

Alternatively, a MONITORED smoke detector alarm system could save 10 to 15 minutes in response time: a significant amount of time when it comes to fire damage and the chance for saving your treasured possessions. Monitored alarm systems can also be set up to monitor for deadly CO2 (carbon dioxide) gas, as well as for sump pump problems, high/low temperatures (indicating problems with heating/cooling systems) and intruder detection.

Additionally, some insurance policies offer reduced rates for homes with these types of monitored alarm systems; check with your insurance carrier for availability and specifics.
