We call it life safety because it is literally a matter of life and death. In the case of fire, you may have only minutes to evacuate the house. In the case of carbon monoxide, you won’t even know it’s present until it’s too late.
Building codes require every home to have smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors in key locations throughout the house. Pro Technologies thinks of these detectors as the first responder and – in many cases – the only chance you have to get everyone out of the house.
Standard home smoke detectors are not perfect. Did you know that nearly a quarter of all fire-related deaths occurred in homes that had non-functioning smoke detectors? Standard household smoke detectors have a life expectancy of 10 years. Older detectors can become too sensitive and trigger false alarms from dust and normal cooking conditions.
Sometimes, older smoke detectors simply stop working without any indication of their failure. Unfortunately, homeowners often disconnect malfunctioning detectors for these reasons – leaving their family and home unprotected.
Also, if you are not home when a fire occurs, who is going to notify the fire department? Smoke detectors can’t always be heard from the street or by a neighbor. Who is going to call the fire department? Who is going to save your pets, your home and your valuables?
At Pro Technologies, we recommend a much better plan for your life safety. The very best scenario you can have for your life safety is a properly designed and installed system that is centrally monitored.
Our central monitoring station will be able to respond first to normal cooking mishaps or maintenance/service needs to ensure proper operation and avoid false alarms. In the event of an actual fire, the fire department is dispatched immediately. Pro Technologies provides smoke and fire detector monitoring service options with every life safety system we install.
Life Safety Smoke Detectors installed by Pro Technologies are different from the “standard” disposable ones found in most homes. Our detectors:
- Have temperature sensors to detect sudden increase in heat for early detection of fire.
- Have the ability to be cleaned and serviced so they do not have to be replaced every 10 years.
- Are centrally monitored as part of a complete life safety system.
- Are internally monitored to detect low batteries, device removal, tampering and fluctuations in sensitivity.
- Meet and exceed all current NFPA fire codes for residential fire protection.
- Are monitored by our central station providing the fastest response to any condition and ensuring the fire department will be responding.
With a Life Safety System installed by Pro Technologies, you can sleep soundly at night – whether you are at home or away – knowing that your loved ones are protected and your property is safe.
