Fire Alarm Monitoring

Protect your family, pets, and home with monitored smoke detectors.

Monitored Detection

You may wonder why we recommend smoke detectors as part of your security solution when you already have smoke detectors in your home.

Although your existing smoke detectors may provide an alarm warning if you are home, they are unable to prompt an emergency response when the home is empty.

With smoke monitored detectors from TELSCO, an alarm signal is sent to our monitoring station when risk of a fire is detected. Our operators will make a call to your home, and if there is no answer, we will dispatch the fire department. Whether you are at work, on vacation, or in the home but unable to call for help, help is on the way.

An Added Level of Protection

Most smoke detectors that you will find installed in a home are ionization detectors. This type of smoke alarm will generally be more responsive to a flaming fire.

The smoke detectors we install are photoelectric and are generally more responsive to fires that begin with a long period of smoldering, such as with a cigarette or short-circuited wire.

Having both types of detectors in your home provides an additional layer of protection.

Hardwired Into Your System

TELSCO smoke detectors are hardwired directly into your security system’s main control panel to ensure supervision of the circuits and access to two power sources (AC and backup battery). With Fire Alarm Monitoring, you can be assured that in the event of a fire emergency, TELSCO monitored smoke detectors will provide the earliest warning possible. Whether you are home or away, we will dispatch the fire department for you. Plus, while there is a small cost for the devices, your monthly rate doesn’t increase.

What does a fire alarm detect?

Fire alarms detect smoke and provide an early warning that the risk of fire may exist. It triggers and alarm that the people in the home or business should exit the premises and take action by calling 9-1-1 for assistance.

What is a monitored fire alarm?

Unlike local smoke detectors, which provide an audible alert onsite only, monitored smoke detectors also send alarms to the monitoring centre when the risk of fire is detected. These alarms allow operators to respond on your behalf and dispatch the fire department as quickly as possible. Monitored response can be incredibly valuable if nobody is in your business during off hours, you are not at home, or if you are sleeping when smoke is detected.

What is fire alarm monitoring?

Fire alarm monitoring is a service that allows alarm signals to be sent to a central monitoring station when the fire alarm (panel) is activated onsite. Operators receive the fire alarm signals and respond by dispatching the fire department. Fire alarm monitoring may also include the delivery of alarm signals for trouble or supervisory conditions.

Does a fire alarm need to be monitored?

If you have a fire panel, it should be monitored. Depending on the details of the site being protected, ULC Fire Alarm Monitoring may be a requirement of occupancy. This can be determined by reaching out to your insurance company or the Authority Having Jurisdiction. If you do not have a fire panel, monitored smoke detectors or heat detectors can be installed as measures to protect your people and your property.
