Even if you don’t run a high-risk business, you shouldn’t skimp when it comes to the fire alarm installation in your Houston or Santa Fe, TX business. Not only will a proactive system protect you and employees, but it will also help you avoid fines from law enforcement and result in lower insurance premiums. We offer solutions for any environment including government buildings, schools, and auto dealerships, each of which has unique requirements.
There are four components of a successful fire monitoring system: detection, notification, response, and maintenance. We work with the top manufacturers in the industry for our alarms, smoke detectors, and mass notification systems including Honeywell, Silent Knight, Vigilant, and Hochiki. Through ongoing maintenance and support, we ensure your business meets all yearly inspections.
Fires overtake a structure within just a couple of minutes, so early detection is a critical component of any fire monitoring system. We install enterprise and small business fire alarm solutions from Honeywell and Vigilant that also include manual activation for added protection.
Your smoke and CO2 detectors are the keys to early detection. Strategically located throughout your property, they will detect fires within seconds. We work with top manufacturers like Honeywell and Hochiki which test products thoroughly before use.
Once your system detects a fire, the next step is notifying all of your employees and authorities. Your fire alarm installation should be linked to a commercial intercom system to allow for mass notification and voice evacuation systems.
The latter is especially important in educational and healthcare environments where you may want to have messages directing everyone on how to leave safely. Along with notifying employees, a signal also goes to an off-site monitoring station.
We use Honeywell Fire-Lite alarm to connect your fire alarm system to an off-site monitoring facility. These communication products ensure a reliable and fast connection so you can link up with an expert immediately in case of an emergency.
Highly-trained operators will judge if there is a real emergency and quickly direct local authorities to your business. They’ll also guide your employees through the entire experience and help them remain calm while support arrives.
It’s easy for businesses to take their fire alarm systems for granted after installation. To ensure safety and law enforcement compliance, you need to be proactive about regularly monitoring and maintaining your system.
Your security installer regularly checks that the signal from your smoke and CO detectors reaches the monitoring station as needed. Regular maintenance ensures increased security, lower energy bills, and increased property values.
