Fire Alarms Go Beyond Basic Smoke Detectors
When you integrate your fire alarms with your security system, you make fire detection much more responsive. Standard smoke sensors only alert you to an emergency when smoke is prevalent. However, your fire alarms with ADT monitoring detect smoke and rising heat. The detector can warn your family of a possible fire more quickly, so everyone can get to a safe place as quickly as possible. Your ADT monitoring system can also instantly notify emergency departments -- even when you’re not home.
Have Monitored Detection For Different Emergencies
When upgrading your fire alarms, you can add additional emergency detection to your home security system:
Water and Carbon Monoxide Sensors: Prepare your home for other environmental emergencies in . CO has been called “the silent killer” and is nearly impossible to detect unless you have an alarm. Flood sensors can warn you about water detected in a monitored area before your basement floods. In any case, your environmental alarms in are ADT monitored to issue alerts or call needed emergency personnel.
Temperature Sensors: Sometimes you need a temperature sensor in places that require temperature control. For instance, monitor plumbing areas in the winter to avoid frozen pipes due to temperature differences around your home. You can also check the precise current temperature in your residence with your ADT Control app.
Medical Notification Systems: If a household member has a medical condition that needs continuous monitoring, you might want to add an alert system that plugs in to your ADT monitored system. Emergency alert keychains and fall down detectors may be helpful if there’s a medical emergency in your house and you can’t reach the phone.
