Beware of Cheap Smoke Alarms

All too often we see a story on TV about a tragic fire that took place somewhere in the country. Many times the people involved in these fires never installed even an inexpensive smoke alarm, or never replaced the batteries in it. A battery operated smoke alarm only offers part time protection because someone must be nearby to hear it if it activates. But what happens when no one hears it, who calls for help then? When you have a professionally installed security system that includes smoke, heat and carbon monoxide detectors, monitoring is provided 24/7 by a central station operator who will summon help when you need it most.

Inexpensive smoke alarms usually require a battery change several times every year. Forget to replace the battery and your alarm is useless! But detectors connected to a security system on the other hand, only need a battery change every couple of years, and the system will notify you when a change is needed.   Smoke, heat and carbon monoxide detectors come in a variety of flavors and functions and must be installed according to industry standards, not haphazardly like the others.
