How Fire Protection Systems Work
Wireless fire alarms throughout your home are programmed to signal an alarm at the first sign of fire to alert occupants, contact the homeowner, and/or alert the monitoring service. Without fire monitoring, when the alarm sounds in the home, it is up to the occupants to assess the situation and call the fire department. If the system is set up so the homeowner is remotely monitoring the home security system, the homeowner receives the message and determines whether to contact the fire department. If the fire protection system is monitored by a customer monitoring service, the agent on duty dispatches emergency services to your home.
