Protecting Families for Over 25 Years

    On average there are 37,000 fires every year in homes across the UK, resulting in 200 deaths annually, the majority of which occur between 10pm and 6am when people are asleep.

    With a working fire alarm system inside your home, you're four times more likely to survive a house fire. There is nothing more important to us than ensuring we are there to help you when the worst happens.

    Home Fire Alarm Systems

    Did you know?

    If your home has over three stories, it becomes a legal requirement as part of building control measures to have a professional fire alarm system. 

     


    Wireless Fire Alarm Systems

    The most popular fire alarm system, and our recommended option, is a wireless fire alarm solution. Valued for its unrivalled flexibility, this alarm does exactly what it says on the tin and works over a radio bandwidth, eliminating the need for cables. Smoke detectors can be strategically placed around your home and, in more advanced systems, can also include heat and carbon monoxide detectors, giving you more advanced protection.

    • Data is fed back to a control panel which can send an alert to the fire brigade if there is a fire
    • Clean and simple installation with enormous amounts of flexibility
    • Battery-powered so can remain operational during power outages
    • Integrate with your smart technology and receive alerts on your smartphone, tablet, and other internet-enabled devices
    • Batteries need to be regularly changed or the system may not work

    Smoke Detectors Linked to Intruder Alarms

    A popular option inside domestic properties is to integrate your fire alarm system with your burglar alarm system, allowing you to control everything from within one panel. This does require two separate detectors and is available in wired or wireless options to suit your requirements.

    • Fewer panels inside your home, making it more aesthetically pleasing and reducing the cost of purchasing a second panel
    • Integrate with smart technology to monitor remotely on your internet-enabled devices
    • Data is fed back to a control panel which can send an alert to the fire brigade if there is a fire.
    • Detectors that are able to be integrated are marginally more expensive but some of this cost can be recouped from not having to purchase a second panel

    Discreet Smoke Detectors

    The perfect solution for those who don’t want a visible detector inside your home. This discrete solution continually draws air from designated areas and feeds it through a piped network into a hidden detector. Inside the detector, the air is filtered and then assessed for smoke particles before then relaying the information back to your control panel.

    • Great inside homes where the design and architecture need to be preserved
    • Seamless and discrete
    • Detects smoke earlier than regular alarms
    • Integrate with smart technology to monitor remotely on your internet-enabled devices
    • Data is fed back to a control panel which can send an alert to the fire brigade if there is a fire
    • More expensive than standard alarm systems
