    Fire alarms and detection systems come in all types, and it’s as simple as asking your local security provider to understand what systems you should install in your home or business.


    Alarms and detectors vary widely in price, and come in many nationally-recognized brands. But working with a security professional will also give you access to other services you should take very seriously. If these hadn’t already occurred to you, you’ll want to think about:


    • Alarm and detector testing and inspections
    • Alarm and detector maintenance requirements
    • Automated monitoring or reporting to emergency responders


    The most important thing a fire alarm needs to do


    Not only do your fire alarms and detection systems have to alert anyone inside the building of a fire and send a notification to emergency responders, but it has to do all of this after detecting the fire early enough. You want the peace of mind that your detectors and alarms will catch a fire early in its development for safe evacuation, and to minimize the damage to property.


    Downtime in your business (or weeks spent outside of your home) after a fire are the last things you want after a traumatic event. Knowing where to install what types of fire detectors and alarms can save you from more unnecessary pain after an already challenging event.

    The components of fire security systems


    Although many home and business owners use the terms interchangeably (largely because the devices are usually built together), there are actually two components to basic fire security systems: the detector, and the alarm.


    Detectors come in multiple forms, often with many sensory methods combined in order to detect fires sooner. The sensory technologies either detect heat, flame, or smoke, and are designed to then trigger the alarm after detection.


    Alarms are principally designed to alert the building’s occupants of the emergency. In recent years, however, satellite communications and other technologies have allowed for alarms to trigger notifications to emergency responders, owners, and third-party security monitoring companies as well.


    Some fire alarms and detectors are also built in with fire suppression systems, like built-in sprinklers.


    Fire alarms and detection systems today are regularly integrated with other security systems, like intrusion and break-in alarms. The more holistic and integrated these systems, the better—especially when you have a trusted, local security provider monitoring your home or business and pushing all alerts out to responders when needed.


    After consultation from your local provider, and after the selection of an alarm and detection system and full installation, your provider will be your go-to expert for periodic system testing and maintenance.


    Thinking just for a moment about the potential consequences of a fire in your business or home is enough to invest the time in a consultation with a professional. Reach out today to explore your options!
