According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), between the years of 2009 and 2013, three out of the five residential fire deaths reported in the USA occurred in homes with no working smoke alarms. Some of these homes did not even have smoke alarm detectors installed at all. Even more alarming is the fact that the death rate doubles for those who live in homes without working smoke alarms. You may think that just because you have battery-powered smoke alarms installed throughout your home that you will always be alerted of a fire in your home, but the same report from the NFPA also claims that dead batteries were the reason behind a fourth of all smoke alarm failures. Unlimited Security can help you avoid this tragic possibility by installing a monitored security alarm system in your home that includes smoke detectors. With monitored smoke alarms, you do not have to worry about battery failure. We would like to tell you why you need a monitored smoke alarm to give your family the ultimate protection against being injured or dying from a fire in your home.
Immediately alerts the appropriate emergency responders
When your monitored smoke alarm sounds, your local fire department and other emergency responders are alerted as soon as the alarm is sounded. These alarms are supervised by professionals at the system’s monitoring facility who take immediate action when your alarm detects smoke or fire. This gives you the protection of advanced detection of smoke and fire 24/7 and prompt notification.
Contains two types of fire detection technologies
Many battery-operated smoke alarms are either ionization smoke alarms or photoelectric smoke alarms. Since ionization alarms are quicker to warn of flaming fires and photoelectric alarms are quicker to warn of smoldering fires, the NFPA recommends that homeowners install both types of smoke alarms in their
homes. Monitored smoke alarms use both of these technologies to detect both rising temperatures and traces of particles of smoke.
No matter where you are, immediate notification
With monitored smoke alarms, the professionals at the monitoring station not only immediately alert the local emergency authorities when the alarm is sounded, but they will also send you an immediate alert of the sounded alarm with texts, emails, and push notifications.
