Lowitt’s Fire Alarm Monitoring: Monitored Smoke Detectors and More
3 Ways Our Fully Loaded Fire Alarm Systems Save Lives
Five minutes. That’s how long it takes for the average home to be consumed by the average house fire. When faced with that little time, a quick response is crucial. Our fire alarm monitoring systems are made to act quickly – to alert of threats and respond to them in seconds. When your home’s devices, such as the smoke detectors and carbon monoxide sensors, find a threat, we’ll act promptly.
You might be wondering how fire detection systems work and want a more in-depth look at how they protect you. We maintain several ways that a Lowitt Alarms system can keep you safe during a fire risk below.
Monitored Smoke Detectors
Long gone are the days where a regular smoke detector would cut it. After all, a smoke detector can inform you about your house being on fire, but how can you follow up on that information? Yes, if you’re awake and able, you can call 911, but what if you’re away or sleeping when the alarm sounds?
According to the National Fire Prevention Association, half of home fire deaths result from fires reported between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m., when most people are asleep. When seconds matter and stress peaks, it’s best to have a system that communicates for you: our smoke alarms are monitored by our trusted facility, which is staffed 24/7/365 and 5 Diamond Certified by the TMA. Since monitored systems have replaced the old-fashioned smoke detectors, you have no reason to keep these antiquated and inadequate devices around.
Where There’s Smoke, There’s Heat – and Carbon Monoxide
I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase, “Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.” Unfortunately, fires also skyrocket your home’s temperatures and increase carbon monoxide poisoning threats. Rapidly increasing temperatures indicate a fire risk somewhere in your house, as there are few other reasons for this dramatic shift. Our smoke detectors also monitor for this activity, helping you find a fire before it’s too late.
Carbon monoxide accumulates when fires spread in unventilated spaces, often due to a closed chimney. Known as the “Silent Killer,” the invisible gas travels through homes carried by smoke. When it enters the human body, it quickly decreases oxygen supply. We install combination smoke/carbon detectors in many key points throughout your home so we’re able to catch these dangers before they spread.
Code Compliance, Testing, and Inspection
Fire safety requires very strict adherence to code, as outlined by local fire safety departments and the NFPA. One of the most important and most easily dismissed code regulations involves unmaintained devices, like a smoke alarm running low on batteries or another device needing routine maintenance.
Lowitt Alarms is also an FDNY-listed company for our dedication to these safety requirements, and we bring that level of attention to every project. Our trained technicians test each smoke, heat, and carbon monoxide sensor we install to make sure your monitoring and alarm system has the fastest response time possible.
