Fire alarms are great, but what if your fire alarm goes off while nobody's home, then what?
With ADT’s Fire and Smoke Monitoring, the 24/7 monitoring team will respond immediately. Their nationwide monitoring centers promise fast responses at every moment of need. When ADT’s monitoring team responds to a fire alarm notification they dispatch emergency response services as well as notify emergency contacts if your home or family is in danger.
The ADT Pulse security system integrates remarkably with ADT’s fire and smoke alarm. The ADT Pulse allows you to set triggered automation. You can set your Pulse system to unlock doors when a fire alarm is triggered for an easy escape and fire department access. You can also set your Pulse to turn off the A/C when the fire alarm is triggered to slow the circulation of smoke.
When you purchase the fire alarm and smoke monitoring system you will receive a fire and smoke detector and a power supply battery backup. The fire and smoke detector enable the 24/7 monitoring team to notify the fire department of activity at your home whether anyone is home or not. The power supply and battery backup provide backup power to the system in the case of a power outage.
You can arm your system as “away” or “stay” mode to act differently depending on your activity at the home. Whether you are “away” or “stay”, once the system is activated, each monitored zone of the house can recognize a violation. Once a zone is “violated” the alarm system will dial the monitoring team at ADT. When the signal is received, the alarm system will send another message if another zone is tripped. If the alarm simply was triggered because your fifteen-year-old burned the popcorn, simply turn off your system by typing in your access code.
The placement of fire and smoke detectors is crucial to the success of your system. It is recommended to install smoke detectors on every level of the home, including the basement. The kitchen and the garage are two of the most critical locations for your systems. The best position for systems are on the ceilings given that smoke rises and allows the systems to quickly detect the smoke.
