Fire Alarms Do More Than Simple Smoke Alarms
Adding fire alarms to a home security set up makes it simpler to respond to a fire hazard in your house. Basic smoke detectors only sound a siren when they are overcome with smoke. However, your fire alarms with ADT monitoring sense both smoke and heat. The fire alarm can warn your household of a possible fire sooner, which allows you to get out of the house as quickly as possible. Your ADT monitoring system can also promptly alert emergency personnel -- even when you’re not home.
Home Monitoring For Other Emergencies
When upgrading your fire alarms, you may consider adding other emergency detection to your home security system:
Water and Carbon Monoxide Sensors: Prepare your home for other possible emergencies in . CO is known as “the silent killer” and is nearly impossible to sense unless you have an alarm. Flood detectors can warn you about water that’s leaking before your basement floods. In any case, your environmental alarms in are ADT monitored to issue alerts or contact emergency services when needed.
Temperature Detectors: A separate temperature sensor helps keep designated areas at monitored temperatures to prevent emergencies. You can keep an eye out so your pipes don’t freeze and get alerts of temperature changes within a few degrees. You can even check the exact current temperature in your residence with your ADT Control web app.
Medical Notification Systems: If a household member has a medical condition that requires 24/7 monitoring, you can get a notification system that connects to your ADT monitored system. Emergency button keychains and fall down monitors can be important if a medical emergency happens in your residence and the phone is far away.
