Fire Alarm Monitoring Makes the Difference
Fire Alarm Monitoring Offers Maximum Protection
Even the best fire alarm system in the world will not offer maximum protection unless it is monitored by a qualified off-site station, properly staffed and able to respond to any emergency. In the residential setting for example, a home can be vacant for long stretches of the day, when people are at work or at school. If fire erupts when no one is home, then stand-alone smoke detectors may sound an alarm, but no one will hear it. If fire strikes late at night when people are asleep, then smoke and carbon monoxide gas could cause severe injury, preventing people from fleeing or calling for help. In any case, smoke, heat and carbon monoxide detectors that are part of an American Alarm integrated and monitored fire alarm system will send a signal instantly to our 24-hour Security Command Center, where our operators can respond and summon help.
American Alarm also uses multiple communication channels for our fire alarm systems, including telephone, radio and internet connections, to make sure that a signal can get through under any conditions.
