We've partnered with some of the nation's leading Home Alarm System companies to offer special deals on systems that could save your life.
Keep your home safe with a new security alarm system
Security alarm systems are generally electronic systems installed by a professional home security company. They are integrated systems covering a range of emergency aid: burglar alarms, fire alarms, and medical assistance, for example. Most security alarm systems come equipped with a code known only to the homeowners. If entry is forced, the security company is immediately notified and assistance is dispatched. The home is monitored remotely by the security company, which protects the homeowners in case of fire or burglary, especially while traveling. Many systems are equipped with cameras, and also include panic buttons so that in case of a medical emergency, an ambulance can be quickly dispatched to the home or business.
Fire is a real threat, so consult a fire alarm company to protect your home.
A fire alarm company is one that sells fire notification and dispatch systems to home owners. Most often, these systems are sold by larger home security specialty companies that handle not just fire alarm systems, but also burglar alarm systems, medical emergency systems, and integrated home security systems (including camera systems and wireless or Internet monitoring home security systems). Companies that sell such systems are often more than simple hardware dealerships - many of them also provide the long-term monitoring and service of the systems in addition to selling them.
Carbon monoxide can be deadly, so make sure your home has the best carbon monoxide sensors.
Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless, tasteless gas that is a product of combustion in such common household appliances as gas ovens or furnaces. It is extremely toxic, quickly causing suffocation as carbon monoxide replaces oxygen in the bloodstream. Carbon monoxide is the leading cause of poisoning in the United States. Although people cannot detect its presence in the air, simple carbon monoxide sensors can be installed the home to measure the levels of the gas in the home and warn residents if it hits unsafe levels. Like smoke detectors, the sensors are small, unobtrusive, inexpensive, and simple to install. It is recommended to install one on every floor in the house.
