Fire & Smoke Home Security Sensors

August 15th, 2013

Protection from smoke and fire in your home is one of the most important types of security. A fire can result in wide-spread damages and a lot of times can result in a total loss. Is your home covered if you have a fire? Do you have the protection you need? If not, you may have a lot of questions when considering fire and smoke protection. It’s important to understand that home security is more than just protection from burglary. It’s really protection from a lot of different dangers you might face in your home.

Smoke Detectors Can Save Your Life

Ever heard the saying, “where there’s smoke there’s fire”? Smoke usually is an indication of a fire brewing, and it’s important to catch those first signals. The dangers from smoke inhalation can lead to severe lung damage causing breathing problems or even in extreme cases may cause death.

Smoke detectors can detect early signs of a fire and often will alert you or anyone in the home by sounding an alarm within the detector.

Protect America offers monitored smoke detectors as part of your home security system. If your smoke detectors sound, your alarm will then sound while sending an alarm signal to the monitoring station. Your monitoring station is 24 hours, so once they receive a signal they will then call the proper authorities and fire department to dispatch to your home if you do not cancel the alarm within a proper amount of time.

Monitored smoke detectors are one of the most important parts of your home security system. They can save your life and get you the help you need when you least expect. Being that it’s always active even when your home security system is disarmed makes this one of the top recommendations for your home.
