Monitored Smoke Detector

Monitored smoke detectors go a step further than normal smoke detectors by adding an extra level of protection to the structure and its occupants. while a local smoke detector will only sound a local siren, a monitored smoke detector sounds a local siren and also sends an alarm signal to a central monitoring station so that the local fire department can be sent to investigate the scene.
