Fire Alarms Go Beyond Standard Smoke Alarms
Including fire alarms with your security system makes it simpler to deal with a potential fire in your house. Ordinary smoke detectors only sound a siren when smoke is prevalent. However, your fire alarms with ADT monitoring can detect smoke and rising heat. The detector can alert your household of a fire threat more quickly, which allows you to get to a safe place sooner. Your ADT monitoring system can also promptly notify emergency personnel -- even when you’re not home.
Have Monitored Detection For Different Emergencies
When upgrading your fire alarms, you can add other emergency detection to your home’s security:
Flood and CO Detectors: Make sure you’re prepared for other environmental emergencies. Carbon monoxide is nicknamed “the silent killer” and is very difficult to sense unless you have a CO monitor. Water sensors can warn you about a leaky pipe or broken sump pump before your basement has two feet of water. Your environmental alarms are ADT monitored to issue alerts or call the proper authorities.
Temperature Sensors: A separate temperature sensor helps keep designated areas at monitored temperatures to prevent emergencies. For example, monitor plumbing areas during the winter months to prevent frozen pipes due to temperature changes around your home. You can even monitor the exact temperature of your house through your ADT Control web app.
Medical Alert Systems: If anyone in your home has a medical condition that needs 24/7 monitoring, you might want to consider adding an alert system that plugs in to your ADT monitored system. Emergency button keychains and fall down monitors can be important when there’s a medical emergency in your home and you can’t get to the phone.
