There are many different types of smoke / heat alarms for your home. For a whole home coverage, we recommend that you install interconnected smoke and/or heat alarms. Instead of your smoke alarms operating independently of one another, interconnected smoke alarms work as an interlinked system. If one alarm goes off, the rest of the alarms will follow suit. This creates an entire smoke alarm system that is dedicated to your family’s safety. Below are some benefits of having interlinked smoke alarms in your home.
Full Home Coverage
When it comes to staying safe from home fires, time is of the essence, with only 3-4 minutes to escape from a house fire. If a fire starts on the top floor of your home and you are in the basement, there’s a chance you may not be able to hear the alarm going off. If you have an interlinked smoke alarm system in your home, the basement smoke alarm will sound when the top floor alarm goes off. You will be able hear the alarm regardless of where you are, compared to where the initial alarm is. In fact, according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), the majority of fatalities stemming from home fires in the United States were located in a different room than where the fire started. An interconnected smoke alarm system will help give you and your family peace of mind knowing your entire house is fully protected.
Wireless Connection – Control in mobile APP
Past interlinked smoke alarm systems were hardwired to each other through your home’s electrical system in order to work properly. Thanks to new technology, you have the option to install wireless interconnected smoke alarm systems in your home.
