Fire monitoring is very important in protecting your family and home. Our professional technicians are experts in installing fire protection systems.

Smoke and heat detectors can be added to any security system. In the event of smoke or a sudden rise in air temperature an alarm will sound to warn your family of a possible fire, while our central station simultaneously contacts the fire department. A display touch pad can be programmed to identify exactly which dire detections device has been tripped in order to provide your family with the most information possible to allow them to safely exit the home.

Carbon Monoxide

Carbon monoxide is one of the most common causes of accidental death in the home. It’s known as the silent killer. We provide 24 hour monitoring and if an alarm goes off our monitoring station alerts the household and dispatches emergency services to your home if you do not answer. This will ensure you and your family will remain safe.
