ADT Monitored Fire Alarm Equipment
As you review the types of equipment you can choose as part of your monitored home security package from ADT, smoke detector technology is well worth considering. This life safety feature gives your home and family added protection from fire, a common but preventable security threat.
ADT: Smoke detector and carbon monoxide monitoring
Carbon monoxide is another household threat covered by ADT monitoring. The colorless, odorless gas is undetectable by humans, so it’s important to consider optional carbon monoxide protection when you get home security monitoring from ADT.
A smoke detector can sense the presence of smoke in your home in two ways:
- Photoelectric detectors (light sensors) – When the light on the smoke detector is blocked by smoke particles, it triggers an alarm.
- Ionization detectors – A small electrical current triggers the alarm when the current is blocked by smoke.
Both carbon monoxide detectors and smoke detectors are available as optional equipment when you purchase a monitored home security system from ADT.
Fire alarms and carbon monoxide sensors play an important part in helping protect homeowners and their families. Make sure to ask about these life safety features when you sign up for ADT security monitoring so that you can receive further protection for your home and family.
ADT monitoring benefits include life safety features
Homeowners face many potential security hazards, but monitored alarm systems can help them prepare for a number of eventualities.
In addition to burglary, homeowners can get added protection against fire and elevated carbon monoxide levels with monitored home security systems from ADT. Fire alarm equipment and other specially designed sensors are available with no additional monitoring fees.
With monitored security systems from ADT, smoke detector or fire alarm equipment is offered as an optional feature to all customers. Many people have smoke detectors in their homes, but these devices may not be part of a home alarm system that will notify a dispatch operator once a threat is detected. Add this optional equipment to your ADT monitored security system for enhanced protection against fire, smoke and toxic CO gas.
With ADT Pulse® Interactive Solutions, you will receive an email or text notification if your ADT monitored smoke detector or carbon monoxide sensor is activated. The ADT Pulse feature lets homeowners use their smartphones or other online mobile devices to control their systems from remote locations.
