Home Fire & Carbon Monoxide Safety
In the United States, approximately 50,000 people pay a visit to the emergency room each year as a result of exposure to carbon monoxide. On the same note, U.S. fire departments respond to roughly 353,000 home structure fires per year. Don’t become another statistic, find out how Slomin’s can help protect your family and your home from major catastrophes.
TYPES OF HOME MONITORING SYSTEMS
Centrally-Monitored vs. DIY Systems
What sets centrally-monitored systems apart from DIY systems and battery-operated smoke detectors? What makes the extra costs worth it? A Slomin’s centrally-monitored system helps protect your home from fire or carbon monoxide even when you’ve disarmed the rest of your system. That’s right, we’ll keep you protected even if you’ve disarmed your system. That means the emergency signal between your system and our central station remains intact 24/7/365.
Non-monitored systems might seem appealing to consumers because they provide users with the autonomy to arm their security system based on how vulnerable they feel, but customers can find themselves at serious risk if they forget to turn their smoke and carbon monoxide detectors back on.
How Does a Centrally-Monitored System Work?
By providing monitoring to your home, Slomin’s purpose is to protect you from a variety of crises and to provide you with help should an emergency situation arise. An alarm signal from your home to our central monitoring station allows us to immediately dispatch an emergency response team if we sense a fire or carbon monoxide emergency.
As the “silent killer,” carbon monoxide has no color, shape, scent, or sound and can creep out of a heating unit or car when you least expect it. Worst of all, carbon monoxide is lethal after as few as a couple of minutes should it reach the central nervous system or the heart.
Likewise, battery-operated smoke detectors cannot alert you if a fire happens when no one is home. By the time your neighbors see the smoke, your home and belongings will have undergone significant damage. An emergency demands an immediate response from local authorities in order to truly protect the people and things you value.
