Life Safety

Protecting What Matters Most

Custom Alarm highly recommends life safety devices in your home. Two of the most important devices can be smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors. Typically, your home will have these devices already, but they are considered stand-alone meaning in the events that smoke or CO is detected it simply sounds an audible alarm at that device in your home. Have you ever considered what would happen if you are not home or are fast asleep? Seconds are extremely valuable and having a Custom Alarm system monitoring your home at all hours of the day and night, you can count on having emergency services dispatched in a timely manner even while you are away.
We completely understand the best way to protect your home is to notify you in the event of environmental alarms as well. We have low temperature and water sensors that can easily be installed and integrate with your home security system. These devices are important for protecting not only your home but also summer cabins or hunting lodges that may not be occupied consistently. Water Sensors are some of the most cost-effective methods to minimize water damage in your home in the event of a water pipe bursting. Insurance companies state this is the highest area of claims they have nationwide, find out how you can lower your risks.

How many smoke detectors do you recommend per home?

Each home is a little different, and even though you will likely have hard wired smoke alarms already installed, we recommend having monitored smoke detectors on each level of your home (basement, main level, second floor, etc.)

Are the detectors only working when my security system is armed?

No. The life safety devices are programmed as “24-Hour” devices meaning whether your system is armed or not armed, you can still count on us monitoring your system every second of each day.

Will I get a call from Custom Alarm when my water sensor goes into alarm?

Yes, we will notify you of this event with a call to make you aware that water is detected in the location of where this device is located.

Do the devices still work in the event of power loss?

Yes, your system is equipped with battery backup and will continue to operate in the event of a power loss for several hours.

How long do the devices last?

We recommend replacing your smoke detectors after 7 years.
