Everyone knows that on a cold Minneapolis night you may need to run the the thermostat a little hotter than usual. Perhaps on a very cold night the furnace overheats and catches fire. The smoke and heat quickly grow and spread. Luckily, your home has the latest in fire detector technology.
No one ever wants to wake up to the horror of your fire detector going off, and then realizing as you awake from your deep slumber that your home may be on fire. Then you remember you need to get your kids safely out of the house. Panic sets in, and as you scurry to get everyone out of the house safely, no one has called the fire department yet. The fire spreads, and your home burns while precious moments pass and still no fire trucks head your way.
Having a fire alarm is a small priceless, but affordable life-saving device that every home should have. It is even beneficial to have more than one in the home. Every floor in your home should have at least one fire detector. With battery operated fire detectors, ensure that the batteries get changed on a regular basis. If the fire detector is wired to the home electricity, install batteries as backups. Of course you will want to test your fire detectors on a regular basis to make sure they are working.
With modern technology, having just a fire detector may not suffice. With a home surveillance system, the fire detector can connect directly to your security system. With this capability the surveillance system detects the fire and contacts the fire department before the alarm wakes you up.
With fire detectors connected directly to your home surveillance, homeowners have the peace of mind that fire units get dispatched without having to make that phone call. Now you can sleep peacefully on those very cold Minneapolis nights and have the added protection that in the event of a fire you can get your family out safely while your surveillance system calls in the fire brigade.
In the event that the power goes out, the home surveillance system operates on backup power, and also transmits through cell phone technology. Even if someone tries to break in to your home, they cannot just cut the phone line and prevent the alarm from alerting authorities. This applies to fire in your home. The fire cannot damage the phone line and prevent a signal from going out to the fire department.
