security systems that go beyond intruder detection

Home security systems go beyond detecting intruders these days. When my wife mentioned that she wanted to get a home security system, I kind of blew her off because we are not in a neighborhood that is very low risk. After she spent days doing research, printing this and that out and coming up with a whole presentation to show me why we needed to get a home security system, I learned why she felt the way that she did. We have worked together to create this blog to show other homeowners just how far a security system can go to keep your family safe.

Aspects Of Fire Protection

There are many people that are investing a lot of money into their home getting security systems. This is a great investment as burglaries are becoming more common. However, one aspect that many people need to consider is a fire system being installed in a home. Unlike a burglar, a fire is not going to go after only that which has a dollar value, a fire is going to go after everything in the home. A fire can devour an entire room of a home in a matter of minutes. It is therefore smart to have the best fire system that you can find. Here are a few different aspects of a fire suppression system that you should consider. 

Sprinklers

You will notice that a lot of businesses will have sprinklers on the ceiling just in case of a fire. However, it is rare to see a home with a fire sprinkler system. This is changing, as fire sprinkler systems are becoming more popular for homes. There is no better way to protect your home than with a fire sprinkler system. These systems can be installed into your home and add a great deal of peace of mind in regards to fire. They work by having water flowing all the time, but the bulbs will be full of glycerine. If the glycerine gets hot it will shatter the bulb and the water will be free to flow and put out the fire. 

Fire Alarms

Many of the old fire alarms were only measuring oxygen levels in the air. This meant that even steam could set them off, but the new fire alarms are able to read much more than this. The fire alarms that you can install in your home now will count carbon dioxide and oxygen. Maybe one of the most impressive things is that they can also note a change in heat in the home. If the room increases in temperature to quickly it will also set off the fire alarm. 

Smart Thermostat

Many of the fire systems will also come with a smart thermostat. This is a very neat technology because in the event of a fire the thermostat is actually going to turn off power to the furnace. This will keep the fire under control for longer. This just gives the fire department more time to respond to the home. If you really want to protect your home, you should consider installing a fire suppression system.
