What are the Benefits of Fire Alarm Monitoring?
If we’ve said it once, we’ve said it a thousand times: fire alarms in buildings SAVE LIVES. They are the single most important and effective way for you to keep your building and its occupants safe from fires. But fires can overtake your building in seconds – by the time you are safely out of the building, it may be too late to call the fire department! Fortunately, this problem can be solved by installing a fire alarm monitoring system.
Fire alarm monitoring systems offer increased protection
Fire alarm monitoring is basically a way to take your building’s fire protection to a whole new level. A fire alarm monitoring system consists of an annunciator panel that syncs with your fire alarm and wirelessly connects your building to a central monitoring station. Every time the alarms in your building go off, the annunciator panel sends a signal to the monitoring station, which immediately notifies the authorities of an emergency in your building at any time, day or night – even when the building is unoccupied.
Fire alarm monitoring systems can save your building
The primary benefit of fire alarm monitoring systems is obvious: in addition to alerting the people within your building of an emergency, fire alarm monitoring systems can alert the authorities of the emergency at any time, day or night – even if no one is in the building when the alarms go off. But fire alarm monitoring provides many benefits beyond fire protection. In fact, fire alarm monitoring isn’t limited to fires at all! Fire alarm monitoring systems are connected to a central alarm monitoring station, and will alert that station to any kind of emergency – fires, break-ins, even presses of a panic button!
Fire alarm monitoring systems give you peace of mind
Fire alarm monitoring systems give you the peace of mind that comes with knowing that you have eyes on your building 24/7. Even when you’ve closed up shop and gone home for the night, someone is watching your building for fires, gas leaks, intrusions or break-ins and is ready to notify the authorities at a moment’s notice. With a fire alarm monitoring system from Confires, you’ll never have to worry about the safety and security of your building at any time, day or night.
Fire alarm monitoring systems can protect any kind of building
Fire alarm monitoring systems are also (almost) infinitely scalable and can be designed to suit any size business environment, from single buildings and strip malls to large building complexes and school campuses! Best of all, as your fire alarm monitoring needs expand, you can divide your service up into zones – this way you can direct the authorities to the exact spot where the emergency is occurring, instead of having to try and explain it over the phone or when emergency services arrive.
Fire alarm monitoring systems can save you money
While there is a monthly fee for fire alarm monitoring, the system can usually end up saving you money! If you own a building in New Jersey or Delaware that has a fire alarm monitoring system installed, many insurance companies will provide breaks on your premium – breaks that could end up saving you hundreds of dollars per year on insurance costs (and that’s not to mention the money you could save from averted crises)!
Fire alarm monitoring systems offer you the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your building is protected against fires 24/7.
