State College Fire Alarms Go Beyond Simple Smoke Alarms
Adding fire alarms to a home security set up makes it easier to deal with a fire situation in your home. Ordinary smoke sensors only alert you to an emergency when there’s smoke. However, your State College fire alarms with ADT monitoring can detect the presence of heat and smoke. The detector can warn your loved ones of a possible fire faster, which allows you to get to a safe place right away. Your ADT monitoring system can also promptly notify emergency services -- even if you’re away.
Home Monitoring For Different Emergencies
If you're upgrading your State College fire alarms, you can add additional emergency sensors to your alarm system:
Flood and CO Detectors: Make sure you’re prepared for other environmental hazards in State College. Carbon monoxide (CO) has been called “the silent killer” and is very difficult to detect unless you have an alarm. Water detectors can notify you about a leaky pipe or broken sump pump before your interior floods and sustains costly damage. Your environmental alarms in State College are ADT monitored to send notifications or call emergency services when needed.
Temperature Sensors: A separate temperature sensor helps keep certain rooms at specific temperatures to avoid emergencies. You can monitor temps to ensure that your pipes won’t freeze and get alerts of temperature fluctuations to a few degrees. You can even monitor the exact current temperature of your house through your ADT Control web app.
Medical Notification Systems: If a household member has a medical concern that needs continuous monitoring, you can consider adding a notification system that connects to your ADT monitored system. Emergency button keychains and fall detectors may be helpful when there’s a medical emergency in your home and you can’t access the phone.
