Columbia Fire Alarms Work Harder Than Basic Smoke Alarms
When you integrate your fire alarms with your security system, you make fire detection much more powerful. Standard smoke sensors only sound a siren when they are overcome with smoke. However, your Columbia fire alarms with ADT monitoring can detect both smoke and heat. The fire alarm can warn your family of a fire threat more quickly, which allows you to get out of the house right away. Your ADT monitoring system can also promptly warn emergency services -- whether you’re home or not.
Get Monitored Detection For Other Emergencies
When upgrading your Columbia fire alarms, you may consider adding additional emergency sensors to your home’s security:
Water and Carbon Monoxide Sensors: Prepare your home for other environmental hazards in Columbia. Carbon monoxide (CO) is nicknamed “the silent killer” and is nearly impossible to notice unless you have a CO monitor. Flood detectors can notify you about water detected in a monitored area before your interior floods and sustains costly damage. In any case, your environmental alarms in Columbia are ADT monitored to send notifications or call needed emergency personnel.
Temperature Detectors: A stand-alone temperature sensor helps keep certain areas at specific temperatures to prevent emergencies. For example, monitor plumbing areas in the winter to avoid frozen pipes due to temperature differences around your house. You can also monitor the exact temperature in your house with your ADT Control web app.
Medical Emergency Systems: If anyone in your home has a medical concern that requires 24/7 monitoring, you might want to consider adding an alert system that integrates with your ADT monitored security system. Emergency alert keychains and fall down monitors can be important if a medical emergency occurs in your residence and the phone can’t be accessed.
