If you own a smoke detector, you obviously realize how effective they are in helping prevent loss of life and property. It is important to understand the differences between the stand-alone battery-operated smoke detector you buy at the store, the basic hard-wired smoke detector installed by electricians, and a monitored smoke and heat detector installed as part of the ACE Security system. Battery-operated/non-monitored home smoke and heat detectors are not connected to the central monitoring station and will only be a local alarm. It will not notify the fire department.

The ACE Security smoke and heat detector is connected to the control panel and is monitored by the Central Monitoring Station 24 hours a day! If smoke or unusually high temperature is detected, the smoke and heat detector sets off an alarm and a signal is sent to our Central Monitoring Station.

When the central station receives a notification that an event has occurred at your house, they will attempt to verify the condition by calling your home before contacting the appropriate authority.

Why would they verify the alarm first? This prevents having the police, fire or emergency service come to your home unnecessarily. If it is a real emergency, the operator can summon the appropriate emergency personnel to your home to assist you immediately.

So whether you are home or away, your home can be protected 24 hours a day, every day.
