Monitored Heat & Smoke Detectors
Keep those you love safe with our fire alarm monitoring systems
Our wireless smoke detectors incorporate a photoelectric smoke alarm with a built-in transmitter designed for use with our security systems. When smoke is detected, the alarm sounds a loud local alarm. Twenty seconds after the local alarm sounds, the built-in transmitter sends a digitally coded wireless signal to the Control Panel. With our fire alarm monitoring technology, the wireless signal will be repeated every 20 seconds as long as smoke is still present. This ensures that our monitoring center is contacted if the alarm is going off while no one is home, or if you are unable to respond to the warning.
Wireless Smoke Detectors
- The smoke alarm can send three different wireless signals to the alarm Control Panel: alarm, low battery, and status.
- Every hour, the smoke alarm sends a status transmission to the Control Panel. The hourly signal updates the Control Panel with the smoke alarm’s condition.
- By monitoring status transmissions, the Control Panel can determine that the smoke alarm is still operational in the installation and if it has a low battery.
Protection 1 Saved Our Lives
“Smoke detectors are not what woke us up. It was the alarm from the house. It was so loud. If the smoke detectors hadn’t gone off and the Protection 1 alarm system hadn’t woken us up, I don’t think we would have been alive,” Kim recalled. “So I called Scott Krause the next day and told him, ‘I just want to let you know that, thank you, you saved my life.’”
