Carbon Monoxide Security: The Silent Killer

October 3rd, 2013

Carbon Monoxide; Protection from the Silent Killer.

Home security think tank Protect America, Inc. reminds people of safety technologies at their disposal and the importance of having carbon monoxide security. Hazards in the home are now more avoidable than ever with advancements in wireless security.

“Our lives are becoming more intertwined with wireless technology every day,” said Chief Operating Officer Scott Fleming. “Soon, every aspect of our daily routines will be manageable at our fingertips. Home security is a great example in that it’s now seamless and very easy to use, but advancements in technology have also made the protection of one’s home and family much more effective.” Parents are able to receive text messages via novel smartphone apps like Protect America’s SMART Connect in the event of an alarm or when a person uses his or her passcode. Systems can also announce specifically which door has been opened so that, for instance, curious toddlers do not wander near a swimming pool unattended.

The Silent Killer; Carbon Monoxide.

Protect America also urges families to arm themselves with Carbon Monoxide detectors. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, 1,500 Americans die from exposure to Carbon Monoxide every year. The American Journal of Emergency Medicine features an article warning that children and the elderly are more susceptible to succumb to Carbon Monoxide poisoning due to their high metabolic rates and high tissue oxygen demands. Modern CO detectors are inexpensive, deploy an alarm immediately when gas levels are dangerous, and also wirelessly communicate with monitoring facilities to dispatch help.

In this digital age, homeowners are turning to simple and powerful wireless technology to defend their family and homes against burglary and everyday hazards. Protect America offers affordable security solutions customizable to every home and family.
