Comparing Heat Detectors and Smoke Detectors

When you have a fire alarm installed in your home, it is likely a combination of two important systems: a heat detector and a smoke detector. Both of these systems do a good job protecting your home. However, they do a great job when paired together as part of a home’s fire alarm system.

A smoke detector responds only when smoke or soot is in the area. Smoke detectors will sound at the slightest bit of smoke, even from a burning piece of food. This makes them somewhat unreliable, at times.

A heat detector is an alarm monitoring system designed to sound when the temperature around the smoke detector has risen above a certain level. Typically, this only occurs when a large fire is present, and the area around the smoke detector is extremely hot. Heat detectors tend to be more reliable than smoke detectors because the temperature required to trip the alarm must be very high.

Keep your home protected at all times with Post Alarm Systems. With our round-the-clock surveillance and fire alarm systems near Los Angeles and Orange County, you will never have to worry. Visit us online or call 1-800-654-7678 to learn how we can protect you.

Talking to Kids About Home Security

fire alarm Los AngelesIt’s important that your children understand the basics of your home security system and home alarm system. They should know how and when to arm and disarm the home alarm security system, and what to do in the event of an emergency. Here are some tips for talking to your kids about home security and fire safety.

How to Use the Home Alarm System
If your kids enter and exit the home without adults present, they’ll need to know how to operate the home alarm system. Teach them how to arm and disarm the system, and what to do if they forget the passcode. Your kids should understand the purpose of your alarm system, what to do if the alarm sounds, what to say to the alarm monitoring company, and the importance of keeping the passcode confidential.

What to Do in the Event of a Burglary
If your children come home to find evidence of a break-in, they must know who to contact. If the alarm system goes off while they are home, they should know how to keep themselves safe. If it’s possible to safely evacuate the home without being detected by the burglar, your children should know where to go and who to contact.

How to Prevent Fires and Handle the Fire Alarm
Children should be taught how to prevent fires, and what constitutes a fire risk. Children should not play with matches or incendiary devices or substances without adult supervision. They also shouldn’t use the stove or grill without supervision unless they are old enough to do so safely. If the fire alarm goes off, children should know how to safely evacuate and contact the police and fire department.

In addition to having the best alarm system available, it’s also important to know what to do during a break-in. If your home’s alarm system is triggered, the most important things that you and your family should do are evacuate the home, proceed to safety, and contact the police. The best security systems for homes include security monitoring services, which trigger your alarm monitoring company to contact the authorities for you.

As soon as your alarm system is triggered, you and your family should remain as quiet as possible to assess the situation. If you hear someone inside your home, or outside trying to break in, you should attempt to safely evacuate. All family members should evacuate together without being seen, and then retreat to the home of a neighbor. You should then contact your security monitoring service and the police.

Business Alarms: Choosing the Right Fit for Your Company

business alarm system Los Angeles

You can protect your business from theft and liability by installing a comprehensive business alarm system in your building. The best security system for businesses is one that provides security monitoring services, surveillance cameras, a security camera system, and security alarm systems with alarm monitoring. Here are some tips for choosing the best alarm system for your company.

Evaluate Your Security Risks
Before proceeding with a business alarm system installation, you’ll need to be aware of your security vulnerabilities. Some alarm system companies provide a free security evaluation. If not, you should investigate common crimes in your area, which windows and doors are easily accessible, which interior and exterior areas are poorly lit, and which interior or exterior areas are most sensitive to employee theft or criminal activity.

Determine Which Security Features You’ll Need
Your business alarm system should include a security camera system that is installed in visible, high profile areas inside and outside of your property. This can deter criminal activity, and provide police evidence in the event of a crime, accident, or criminal or civil allegations against your company. Surveillance cameras combined with a security monitoring service allow you to catch and prevent criminal activity in real time. Alarm systems, including fire alarms and security alarm systems that include alarm monitoring, will notify you and the authorities in the event of an emergency.

Find Out What Happens When the Alarm is Triggered
If your alarm system is triggered, a signal should be sent to an alarm monitoring company. That company should notify you, as well as the police. Without alarm monitoring, you are relying on a passerby hearing the alarm and contacting the police.

If you’re in need of a business alarm system near Los Angeles, come see us at Post Alarm Systems. We provide high-tech, cost-effective commercial alarm systems, surveillance systems, security camera systems, and security monitoring services that will protect your business and commercial property from harm.

Reducing the Risk of Kitchen Fires

Watch this video for some great tips for reducing the risk of a kitchen fire. You’ll also learn how to put out a dangerous grease or oil fire.

Uncovering Hidden Home Fire Hazards

fire alarm los angeles

The best alarm systems include a high tech fire alarm. Your home’s fire alarm system should not only make an audible sound if it detects smoke or heat, but should also alert your home monitoring system to call the local fire department for assistance. Here’s a look at some hidden home fire hazards that may set your fire alarm off.

Faulty Electrical Wiring or Loose Outlets
Because electrical wires are out of sight behind walls, it can be difficult to identify a wiring problem before it’s too late. Loose outlets can also be a fire hazard. If you notice that an appliance plug slips easily out of an outlet, which might mean that the outlet’s blades have loosened. This can generate intense heat that leads to fires. You can prevent house fires by investing in a high-quality fire alarm system, replacing loose outlets, and installing arc-fault circuit interrupters.

Dirty Dryer or Lint Tray
You must empty your dryer’s lint tray after every load of clothes that you dry, otherwise the lint can build up and become a fire hazard. You should also regularly clean the dryer cabinet to remove lint that may have fallen down near the dryer’s heating unit. If enough lint falls around the heating unit, a fire can easily start.

Old or Damaged Appliances
Vintage, old, or damaged appliances are also a huge fire hazard. Old or vintage appliances may have frayed or damaged wires that spark when the appliance is in use. They may also have been constructed according to more lax safety standards than we use today. Damaged appliances can burn, smolder, or spark, causing a dangerous house fire.

If you’re looking for a high tech fire alarm system in Los Angeles to protect your home, come see us at Post Alarm Systems. Our comprehensive home security systems include quality fire alarm systems, surveillance or security camera systems, and a valuable home monitoring system. To learn more about finding the best alarm system for your home, call us today at 1-800-654-7678.

Examining the Parts of Commercial Security Systems

business alarm system Los Angeles

A comprehensive security system for businesses should include high-tech elements that deter criminal activity, monitor vulnerable or at-risk areas, and notify authorities of a security breach. Installing a surveillance and alarm system for your business can also reduce your liability in the event that a legal action is pursued against you. In order to ensure that you have the best security system for your business, you should make sure that it has the following features.

Your business’ alarm system should include a fire alarm and anti-intrusion devices. It should also include a surveillance or security camera system with live monitoring services, so you can detect criminal activity as it happens. It should also include an access control system that allows you to monitor employees who enter and exit certain areas at certain times.

Why Wireless Is the Way to Go for Home Security

wireless home security system Los AngelesYour home security system should make you and your family feel safer and more comfortable, whether at home or on vacation. A wireless home security system can enhance your home’s security and provide convenient security features that other systems do not. Here are some of the reasons that a wireless home security system is the best system for your needs.

Remote Home Monitoring System
A wireless home security system typically consists of a wireless surveillance or security camera system, a wireless home alarm system, and a wireless smoke and fire alarm system. All of these elements of the wireless home security system can be controlled remotely via a computer, laptop, smart phone, or tablet. This means that you have access to the feed from your home video security system even if you aren’t at home. You can also monitor and control your home alarm system and smoke and fire alarm system with the push of a button.

Operates Even if the Power is Out
A wired home security system relies on your phone line, internet connection, and power grid in order to be operational. A wireless home security system can continue to function even if your phone lines are cut, your internet is down, or your power is out. They operate on a battery backup system that ensures you and your family will still be safe and protected.

Remote Troubleshooting and Repairs
If your wireless home security system is malfunctioning, a technician can almost always identify and repair the problem remotely. This saves you time, money, and stress, and guarantees that your home security system will be back up and running as quickly as possible.

If you’re looking for the best security system in for your Los Angeles home, come see us at Post Alarm Systems. Our experienced and knowledgeable alarm system technicians can tell you about all of the advantages of a wireless home security system.

Home Surveillance: Safety at your Fingertips

home monitoring systems Los Angeles

Home invasions are cheaper and easier to prevent than they are to repair. A home security camera isn’t just a bunch of cameras tucked in the corners of your home’s exterior and interior—instead, these home surveillance systems can be synced to your smartphone so you can check up on your home whether you are on the couch, out shopping, or on vacation.

Home surveillance systems are especially convenient for parents of latchkey kids. For example, around the time parents are expecting their child to come home, they can tap into the system and see that their child has arrived safely, and that no suspicious figures are hovering near your home when your child is alone. This peace of mind that home surveillance systems bring eliminates that gnawing sense of worry that parents and homeowners feel when they are away from their homes.

With unmatched customer service and experience, you can rest assured that we at Post Alarm Systems will help keep you and your loved ones safe with surveillance systems, alarms, and more. To learn more about what we can do for you, call us at (800) 654-7678 or visit our website.
