Fires overtake a structure within just a couple of minutes, so early detection is a critical component of any fire alarm monitoring system. We install enterprise and small business fire detection solutions from Honeywell and Vigilant that also include manual activation for added protection.
Your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are the keys to early detection. Strategically located throughout your Laredo or Corpus Christi-area property, they will detect fires within seconds. We work with top manufacturers like Honeywell and Hochiki which test products thoroughly before use.
Once your system detects a fire, the next step is notifying all of your employees and authorities. Your fire alarm system installation should be linked to a commercial intercom system to allow for mass notification and voice evacuation systems.
The latter is especially important in educational and healthcare environments where you may want to have messages directing everyone on how to leave safely. Along with notifying employees, a signal also goes to an off-site monitoring station.
We use Honeywell Fire-Lite alarm to connect your fire alarm system to an off-site monitoring facility. These communication products ensure a reliable and fast connection so you can link up with an expert immediately in case of an emergency.
Highly-trained operators will judge if there is a real emergency and quickly direct local authorities to your business. They’ll also guide your employees through the entire experience and help them remain calm while support arrives.
It’s easy for businesses to take their fire alarm systems for granted after installation. To ensure safety and law enforcement compliance, you need to be proactive about regularly monitoring and maintaining your system.
Your security installer regularly checks that the signal from your smoke and CO detectors reaches the monitoring station as needed. Regular maintenance ensures increased security, lower energy bills, and increased property values.
