Fire, Water, and CO Detection

Intruders aren’t the only thing you should guard your home from. Protect your home with a fire detector, heat detector, water detector, and carbon monoxide detector. Don’t risk your family’s safety and add detectors to your security plan. When activated the alarm gives you thirty seconds to disarm it and then call Strauss to tell them it was a false alarm. In the case of an emergency the alarm will signal Strauss that there is a problem. The proper authorities will then be dispatched and sent to your home to address the situation. The alarm will automatically call the authorities, letting you focus on making sure everyone is safe.
