Speedy Fire detection
Security and warning
Help save lives
1. Avoid Smoke Inhalation
Smoke inhalation is the leading cause of death related to fires more than heat or flames.
2. Early fire detection
An audible or visual signal enables you to seek safety soon after the fire starts. Early detection can enable you to avoid serious damage or destruction.
3. Discounts on Insurance
When you install fire alarms you can save money on the home. They help cut costs for insurance companies by reducing the risk of a fire destroying your home, appliances and possessions.
4. Decreased risk of fire damage
Property damage can require large investments and a great deal of time to repair. You can also avoid damage to nearby properties when you install a residential fire alarm.
The primary benefit is detecting potential fires early, thus improving reaction time (getting people out safe) and activating the fire sprinkler or suppression system to stop fires fast. Central station monitoring is also a valuable service to property owners to ensure alarm systems are continuously working properly.
Fire alarms are instruments that activate when there is a fire. They alert the public and rescue services to take action in case of a fire. In addition, having a fire alarm system helps reduce the number of injuries from a fire. There are three primary types of fire alarms: smoke, heat, and combination. Smoke alarms alert the public to clear out of smoke-filled areas. Combination heat and smoke alarms help save lives by sounding an alert when there is only heat or only smoke present.
Smoke alarms activate when there is enough smoke to activate them. Smoke alarms can be battery powered or AC powered, depending on their design. These types of alarms are best used in kitchens, living rooms and other areas with heavy cigarette or cigar smoking habits. Battery-powered smoke alarms tend to be cheaper than AC-powered models but aren’t as effective at sounding an alarm in the event of a fire. A carbon monoxide (CO) detector can warn people that burning candle or other sources of CO produce poisonous levels of this gas in their homes.
A combination heat and smoke alarm can sound an alert when there is only heat or only smoke present in a room. This type of alarm can save lives by sounding an alert when only minor damage has been done to property by a fire’s heat wave. In addition, people can install battery-powered plug-in night lights on their stairs so they don’t trip over night while trying to go up or down stairs in the dark without disturbing their family members asleep on their floors. Installing night lights at regular intervals will remind people to check on fires during nighttime hours so they can sound an alarm as soon as possible if one occurs
Fire alarms are beneficial safety devices that help prevent property damage and injuries from fires occurring at homes, businesses and other buildings throughout the world. There are several types of fire alarms based on how they react to fires—smoke, heat and combination—and all are necessary for safe buildings and communities.
