Portland Fire Alarms Go Beyond Standard Smoke Detectors
When you integrate your fire alarms with your security system, you make fire detection much more powerful. Ordinary smoke sensors only alert you to an emergency when they are overcome with smoke. However, your Portland fire alarms with ADT monitoring detect both smoke and heat. The fire alarm can alert your family of a possible fire more quickly, so everyone can get out of the house as quickly as possible. Your ADT monitoring system can also instantly alert emergency services -- even when you’re not home.
Have Monitored Detection For Different Emergencies
When upgrading your Portland fire alarms, you may consider adding additional emergency detection to your alarm system:
Water and Carbon Monoxide Sensors: Be prepared for other environmental hazards in Portland. Carbon monoxide (CO) has been called “the silent killer” and is very difficult to notice without a sensor. Water detectors can notify you about water detected in a monitored area before your basement floods. Your detectors in Portland are ADT monitored to send alerts or call emergency services when needed.
Temperature Detectors: A separate temperature sensor helps keep certain rooms at specific temperatures to avoid emergencies. For example, put sensors around plumbing areas during the winter season to avoid frozen pipes due to temperature fluctuations around your home. You can even monitor the exact current temperature in your house with your ADT Control mobile app.
Medical Alert Systems: If you or a family member has a medical condition that requires continuous monitoring, you might want to add an alert system that integrates with your ADT monitored security system. Emergency help keychains and fall monitors can be essential if there’s a medical emergency in your residence and you can’t reach the phone.
