Smoke Detectors: The Latest in High-Tech

According to the National Fire Protection Association, in 2016, a residential fire occurred every 82 seconds.

Smoke Alarm Monitoring, Inc. in Garden City, NY offers a high-tech, patented, photoelectric, battery-operated cellular smoke detector with lifetime warranty. Nothing else in the industry compares. It works right out of the box. No credit checks or contracts are required.  This is a one-of-a-kind device that can be used with additional units throughout the property and they are monitored 24/7/365 by central station, emergency operators.

The company offers 24/7 live dispatch through a monitoring service and alerts homeowners on their phone. Homeowners insurance companies often give a 5% to 15% discount for using a monitored service. This savings can nearly cover the cost of the live monitoring. If you have unattended pets at home, it’s crucial to get notified so pets lives may potentially be saved. According to, about 40,000 pet lives are lost each year.

Most homeowners aren’t very informed about smoke detectors. It’s not usually a “hot” topic on their priority list. They go to the store, buy one or more (usually the battery-operated type, although hard-wired detectors are available) and put them where they think the detectors will work best. Unfortunately, most homeowners don’t test their detectors monthly and up to 75% may not be working. Click here for the frightening statistics.

Ionization have been widely used due to their lower cost, but photoelectric smoke detectors work faster because smoke normally occurs before fire—especially slow, smoldering smoke.  When smoke interrupts the beam of light in the photoelectric detectors, it will go off quickly. The time saved using photoelectric detectors can mean the difference between life and death.

The problem: unless you’re at home or hard-wired into a security system with live monitoring, no one will know your home is on fire– until it’s too late. Smoke and fire cause billions of dollars in damage as well as loss of life. This can often be avoided with the appropriate planning.
