Benefits of Interconnected Smoke Alarms

Benefits of Interconnected Smoke Alarms

There are many benefits that wireless interconnected smoke alarms have when it comes to protecting you and your family from house fires. So, how exactly do wireless interconnected smoke alarms work? When one alarm sounds, the rest of the interconnected alarms go off as regardless of where the fire is in the house. This creates an entire smoke alarm system that is dedicated to your family’s safety.

Here are some reasons you may want to invest in an interconnected smoke alarm system and how they compare to standalone smoke alarms.

Full Home Coverage

When it comes to staying safe from home fires, time is of the essence. While 30 years ago you had nearly 17 minutes to escape from a house fire, today you only have 3-4 minutes. Thanks to interconnected smoke alarms, when one alarm goes off in your house, the rest of the interconnected alarms will also sound. No matter where you are in your home, you will be alerted of the fire even if it is on a different floor thanks to this advanced technology. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) states that the majority of fatalities due to home fires occur when they were located in a different room than where the fire started.  If a fire starts in the basement and you are in your bedroom, your bedroom alarm will also go off, alerting you that a fire has started, and you need to evacuate immediately.

They are Wireless

Wireless interconnected smoke alarms are just that: wireless. All communication between alarms occurs via radio signals throughout your home. There is no hassle when it comes to setting up smoke alarms. This makes it easy to switch from standalone to interconnected alarms. Many of our interconnected smoke alarms even come with integrated battery backup and an included hardwire adapter. This interconnected alarm has voice location included to alert you of where the danger is occurring in your home, making it easy to choose the best evacuation route.
