What is Electronic Fire and Life Safety Protection?
PROTECTION PLUS offers Home Owners much more than burglary alarm installations. Technology now allows a home owner to monitor for a variety of potential threats to your home.
Fire and Smoke can be devastating to a home and family members. It’s particularly dangerous for young children, the handicapped, and the elderly.
PROTECTION PLUS can install fire, heat and smoke detection systems in your home that not only provide in home sirens but add the important element of 24/7 professional monitoring.
Studies have shown that young children often sleep so soundly that a conventional smoke detector will not wake them. In other cases occupants that are handicapped or have mobility issues cannot respond to alarms. With professional monitoring an operator can dispatch EMS to the premises potentially saving lives & extensive damage to a building. You can also include important information so the monitoring station operator can inform EMS that there a special circumstances such as handicapped residents in the home.
Add Total Connect Smart Home Monitoring and you will also receive text or email alerts on fire, or Carbon Monoxide alarms in addition to calls from the monitoring station.
Unmonitored “local” battery operated smoke detectors purchased at a big box retailer rely on YOU testing them to insure they are working. Monitored Smoke Detectors are being monitored by the Central Station for battery strength and connectivity. If there is a problem with the device, such as a low battery, the alarm system will automatically inform you, allowing for timely repair. Some Insurance companies now require fire monitoring in homes deemed higher risk, due to age, fire places, older wiring etc. Most insurance companies will provide a rate discount if you have monitored Smoke Detector(s). A certificate of installation and monitoring will be provided. Ask a PROTECTION PLUS consultant on how smoke detection can be part of your protection plan and for fire response policies apply in your area.
Carbon Monoxide Detection
Carbon Monoxide (CO) monitoring in Toronto and Ontario it is now mandatory to have at least one Carbon monoxide detector in each residence. More detectors may be required on multi-level homes with multiple potential sources of CO gas.
Where is Carbon Monoxide found? CO is found in fumes produced any time you burn fuel in cars or trucks, small engines, stoves, lanterns, grills, fireplaces, gas ranges, or furnaces. CO can build up indoors and poison people and animals who breathe it.
Who is at risk from CO poisoning?Everyone is at risk for CO poisoning. Infants, the elderly, people with chronic heart disease, anemia, or breathing problems are more likely to get sick from CO. Each year, more than 400 Americans die from unintentional CO poisoning not linked to fires, more than 20,000 visit the emergency room, and more than 4,000 are hospitalized. CO is often referred to as the sleeping gas, a building with a CO leak may cause sleeping occupants to die in their sleep.
Consequently quick detection and notification is critical to prevent illness and worse… While local detectors may detect the gas, they may not wake up sleeping occupants. Children, adults with mobility issues, and pets are particularly at risk.
Adding Monitored CO detectors to your home adds the important factor of 24/7 professional monitoring. Now an operator can dispatch EMS in the event CO is detected, potentially saving lives.
