Carbon Monoxide & Smoke Detection

Protecting Your Health & Safety

Safeguarding your family from the dangers of carbon monoxide exposure and smoke inhalation is a necessary component of your home safety system. 

Proven research indicates that more home fire fatalities occurred in homes that didn’t have working smoke alarms—or none at all.

Carbon Monoxide Detection

Carbon monoxide poisoning is another home hazard that requires the highest precaution levels. This inconspicuously dangerous gas caused more than 400 deaths in the United States in 2018. Several thousand emergency room visits and hospitalizations also occurred that same year.

Carbon monoxide’s odorless, colorless, and tasteless properties make it difficult to know if you’re being exposed—unless you have the appropriate equipment. Implementing the most advanced technology of home detection paired with alerts will provide you and your loved ones with an additional layer of protection.

 

 

Smoke Detection

When mapping out your family’s home safety checklist, a working smoke detector must be a critical component of your plan. Without this, you risk potential injury and possible loss of life, as well as severe damage to your home. 

Once smoke is detected, this wireless device will set off an alarm notifying anyone inside the home of impending danger. Accompanying central station monitoring will also alert appropriate local first responders of an emergency.

Safety Alerts

The accompanying Alarm.com app detects carbon monoxide leaks to alert you and local authorities through central station alarm monitoring. 

These alerts also work similarly for smoke and fire detection, protecting you and your family from potential loss of life and property. It’s also important to have carbon monoxide and smoke detectors inspected periodically to ensure they’re in working order. 

The app also provides real-time mobile device alerts indicating your detectors’ low or missing batteries.

Accompanying Equipment

Ensure you’re implementing the appropriate components when adding a fire and life safety system to your home.

Consider the following options:

Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Receive immediate notifications detecting and alerting you to this potentially fatal gas.

Smoke Alarms

Ensure real-time alerts notifying you, your loved ones, and first responders of a potential emergency.

Fire Alarm Monitoring & Firefighter Module

A wireless signal communicates with your fire alarm’s control panel, enabling all smoke detectors to contact your central station alarm monitoring system.

Water Leaks & Flood Detectors

Add these safeguards to your bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, basements or areas prone to leaks and/or flooding.

Can A Gas Fireplace Cause Carbon Monoxide Poisoning?

Yes, a gas fireplace could cause carbon monoxide poisoning if there is a lack of precautions to alert residents about the presence of this potentially lethal gas, such as annual fireplace and chimney inspections, and smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.

Installing a Carbon Monoxide Detector

Is Your Carbon Monoxide Detector Beeping?

If a carbon monoxide detector is beeping, it could mean carbon monoxide is present or the battery has a low charge, and therefore, the device itself should be replaced.
