3 Essential Home Detectors Outside of Home Security

Life Safety Equipment. Smoke Detector, Flood Detector and Carbon Monoxide Detector

Protecting your family is the top priority. That’s why many people invest in monitored home security systems. But, intruders aren’t the only threat to your family’s safety within the home. Other dangers include smoke, water leak, and carbon monoxide poisoning, which can easily be prevented with essential home detectors.

Smoke Detectors

Fire can spread quickly. For this reason, every home should be equipped with working heat sensor fire alarms. According to the U.S. Fire Administration, “Residential is the leading property type for fire deaths (73.2%), fire injuries (76.5%) and fire dollar loss (54.7%).” The potential for injury and fatality is high with residential fires making it vital that you take the proper precautions. ADT-monitored smoke detectors are heat sensor fire alarms which are triggered by the presence of smoke, but also by increased temperatures. These devices work by utilizing fixed-temperature and rate-of-rise sensors.

Traditional smoke alarms emit a loud siren, alerting inhabitants that smoke is present and a fire situation is likely. With Protect Your Home's ADT-monitored heat sensing smoke detector, a representative keeps track of any alerts in your home and provides full coverage to notify you, 24/7. In the event of an alarm, assistance is dispatched by an ADT representative, helping to keep your home protected. This is peace of mind, around the clock.

Flood sensors

Flooding can also cause damage to the internal structures of your home and result in future issues and health problems if not dealt with appropriately. Water in your home can affect electrical wiring, cause mold if not dried out properly, and even contaminate your water. In fact, FEMA reports that a single inch of water in your home could cost up to $25,000 in repairs and damages. To help avoid water leak damage, consider installing an ADT-monitored flood detector from Protect Your Home.

Protect Your Home's flood sensors are installed on the floor to immediately recognize the presence of water and help avoid damage. These devices are commonly placed under sinks, in utility rooms, or even in crawl spaces. With ADT-monitored detectors from Protect Your Home, you will instantly be alerted of water to help avoid troublesome damage and costly cleanup.

Carbon Monoxide Detectors

One final home hazard is carbon monoxide, a tasteless odorless gas that poses a major health risk. Undetectable by humans, this gas can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning. For this reason, every home needs to be fitted with carbon monoxide detectors from Protect Your Home. 

According to the CDC, “during 2010–2015, a total of 2,244 deaths resulted from unintentional carbon monoxide poisoning.” With four colored LED indicators, these carbon monoxide detectors provide the status of your home at a glance. They monitor your air quality, but also track the concentration of carbon monoxide in your home. When paired with your ADT home security system, these detectors will alert you to elevated levels of carbon monoxide and an ADT representative can contact emergency services at your direction. 

Even after these home detectors are installed throughout your home, it is still important to remain vigilant! Electronic devices are not infallible, and the technology and battery power wear out over time. The U.S. Fire Administration suggests that detectors should be tested monthly and batteries “replaced once a year” unless it is powered by a 10-year lithium (or “long-life”) battery, in which case should be replaced properly with the instructions provided. 

Beyond home security, home detectors are your next line of defense. Integrating Protect Your Home’s life safety devices with our home security system can shave precious seconds during an emergency. Each one of these Life Safety devices can be connected to your ADT security system offering you ease-of-use and real-time alerting with your ADT Pulse system. While home, away, or asleep, with our home security equipment, you can rest easy knowing you are protected.
