Austin Fire Alarms Work Harder Than Standard 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 alarms only alert you to an emergency when they are overcome with smoke. However, your Austin fire alarms with ADT monitoring detect the presence of heat and smoke. The detector can alert your household of a fire threat sooner, which allows you to get to safety right away. Your ADT monitoring system can also promptly alert emergency personnel -- whether you’re home or not.
Have Monitored Detection For Other Emergencies
If you're upgrading your Austin fire alarms, you may consider adding additional emergency detection to your alarm system:
Flood and CO Detectors: Be prepared for other possible emergencies in Austin. Carbon monoxide is nicknamed “the silent killer” and is very difficult to sense without a CO monitor. Flood detectors can alert you to water that’s leaking before your basement floods. In any case, your detectors in Austin are ADT monitored to send out notifications or call emergency services when needed.
Temperature Sensors: A stand-alone temperature sensor helps keep certain rooms at monitored temperatures to avoid emergencies. You can monitor temps to ensure that your pipes won’t freeze and get alerts of temperature changes within a few degrees. You can also monitor the precise current temperature of your house with the ADT Control app.
Medical Emergency Systems: If a household member has a medical concern that requires continuous monitoring, you can add an alert system that plugs in to your ADT monitored security system. Emergency alert keychains and fall monitors may be helpful if a medical emergency happens in your home and you can’t access the phone.
