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.
