Advantage Alarm, Inc provides commercial and residential security systems. Protect your family and business by installing state of the art intrusion detection systems. These systems consist of hard wired and wireless door & window contacts, motion detectors, glass-break detectors and sirens that will alert you of an intruder. The siren also indicates to the intruder that they have been detected and the police are on their way. Wireless panic buttons and key-fobs can also be incorporated into the alarm system.
Alarm systems may also be equipped with smoke, heat, and/or carbon monoxide detectors. These are also known as 24 hour zones because they are on at all times. Smoke detectors and heat detectors protect from the risk of fire and carbon monoxide detectors protect from the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.
CO detectors are designed to measure CO levels over time and sound an alarm before dangerous levels of CO accumulate in an environment, giving people adequate warning to safely ventilate the area or evacuate. These detectors also alert a monitoring service that can dispatch emergency services if necessary.
While CO detectors do not serve as smoke detectors and vice versa, dual smoke/CO detectors systems are also available. Smoke detectors detect the smoke generated by flaming or smoldering fires, whereas CO detectors detect and warn people about dangerous CO buildup caused, for example, by a malfunctioning fuel-burning device. In the home, some common sources of CO include open flames, space heaters, water heaters, blocked chimneys or running a car inside a garage.
Your alarm system keypad has built in fire, medical and panic buttons. The medical alert button can be used to automatically dispatch emergency services with the touch of a button. Wireless medical alert pendants are also available to help seniors who may need medical assistance. Your family can feel more secure about a loved one who may be living independently, knowing that with the push of a button help is on the way. Family members can also be alerted of this emergency condition as well.
Monitor the temperature (low temp freeze alert), sump pump water level, ejector pump, floor water detection and septic holding tank. Our monitoring services are ready to inform you of a building supervisory condition 24/7. We can even automatically auto dispatch and schedule your septic pumping services as needed when the holding tank alarm has triggered.
Using cellular technology, you can receive e-mails and text reports of the alarm usage. Receive real time reports of when guests, cleaning services or employees have armed and disarmed your alarm system. Using your smart phone or any web browser you can check the status and history of your system and arm or disarm remotely with the touch of a button.
