I already have battery operated smoke detectors in my home, so why would I need one installed that is tied into a 1st Alarm Security system?
Before choosing a photoelectric smoke detector for alarm, you need to decide on the scale of the room. It depends on how effectively and quickly the device will catch the smoke. As it turned out, most models confuse it with dust, you should check all the functional characteristics in the store, it is possible to deduct the disadvantages of the necessary product on the Internet. The method of attachment, an important point that is determined by the consumer. Some people like battery products, some prefer wires. This point should be discussed with a specialist, only he will tell you the correct option.
Since you already own smoke detectors in your home, you obviously realize what an important safety measure these devices are. That’s good! However, there are differences between “stand alone” detectors and one installed by 1st Alarm Security. Our devices are tied directly into your security panel and are monitored through central station. If you do have a fire, central station notifies your fire department instantaneously, saving valuable time to prevent loss of property and/or lives.
