Different Types Of Smoke Detectors In Homes

Arby Babaian Alarm System, Fire Alarm Systems, Home Security Tips 2 Comments


This last week we were inspected a home that had a monitored alarm and decided to join the All About Security family.  When we did our security audit we wanted to make sure that everything was up to date. This particular home had monitored fire protection that was attached to the hardwired smoke detectors.
