Falling back made a little easier
With daylight savings time coming to an end this weekend, it’s time that we start not only thinking about turning our clocks back but also replacing the batteries in our smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
During the winter months fire fatalities or fire related injuries increase by at least 5%. Making it even more crucial to make sure the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms are changed.
It also suggested that you test all smoke and carbon monoxide detectors at least once a month to be sure they are operating properly.
But did you know there is another option? What if you never had to remember when the last time was that you checked to make sure the alarms where working or if the batteries needed to be replaced?
Well you can! With any of our security systems you can wirelessly sync one of our smoke or carbon monoxide detectors to your security system. Not only will you get notifications and alerts on your phone but an in home alarm would sound if one of your smoke or carbon monoxide alarms went off. Also notifying the proper authorities so they could dispatch the fire department out for help.
Still worried about having the change the batteries every few months? Not with one of our smoke or carbon monoxide detectors. Unlike a store bought detectors ours come with long life lithium batteries and transmit important status messages such as the battery condition of the detector, malfunctions and even if it’s been tampered with.
Whether you decide to do a store bought detector or purchase one that syncs with your security system it’s always wise to make sure one is placed in every room of your home. Because your peace of mind is what matters.
