Fire Protection Home Alarm Systems Provide Extra Peace of Mind

Jul 25th 2015 at 3:45 AM

Like most people, you as a homeowner probably rely on separate kinds of security systems to complete separate functions. For example, many homeowners depend on motion detector home alarm systems for intruder protection, and the smoke alarms for fire protection. However, sometimes an upgrade on either system may be required. Today, many home security systems come with the option to add fire protection.

Even if you aren't ready for the full package, either because your family needs some time to get used to a new security system, or just can't afford it right now, upgrading to fire protection is the way to go for all around safety and security. When it comes to modern home safety, most security systems are built on open platforms. This basically just means they can be easily integrated with other types of alarm systems that serve separate but equally important functions like flood, carbon monoxide, or of course fire protection.

While smoke alarms are great for an early warning system, monitored systems have the ability to notify authorities right away that a fire emergency is occurring. These combined functions greatly increase the chance of survival of a residential fire not only for you and your family, but pets and property.

While most people fear a burglary or intrusion far more than a home fire, fires can be far more dangerous in the sense that they are more likely to occur while family members are at home. Contrarily, most burglaries occur during the day when family members are at work. This means there is greater risk of personal damage, injury or death.

The faster help can be on the way, the greater the chances are of escaping catastrophe. Of course facing a malicious home intruder, possibly with a weapon, is a far scarier prospect than escaping a small fire, but a raging house fire which begins during the night while family members are sleeping can catch individuals by surprise, and close of important escape routes.

Of course, any good fire safety home security system has many accessories which should be placed around the house. Besides fire detection, it is important to have universal fire extinguishers, fire blankets, and even escape ladders for upper story windows. These are the items that will truly make the difference between a life and death emergency situation.

Staying safe at home involves part early detection of an emergency situation, and part preparation. No family is ever truly ready to face a home disaster, but one with a good plan can come out ahead. Every family needs a basic fire plan which involves multiple escape routes from every room, a meeting place, and a good understanding of exit tactics, for example touching a doorknob before opening a door which could allow flames to come into the room.

This can be especially important for small children, who should be practicing things like crawling under the smoke as they escape, and "stop, drop and roll." It may not be possible to prevent every fire, but it is possible to prevent many. Stay safe with early detection and preparedness!.
