Fire and Carbon Monoxide: Two Deadly Intruders

Home security systems are geared toward stopping burglary and home intrusion, but there are two silent killers who can invade your home without triggering a burglar alarm. Fire and carbon monoxide are a double dose of danger for any homeowner. But with a little extra protection, plus affordable 24-hour monitoring, Monitronics can help you avoid becoming a victim.

Installing smoke and carbon monoxide detectors in your home is the best way to protect your family and property. It costs just a little more to include them as part of a Monitronics home security system, but it's worth it. Detectors are your first line of defense against fire and carbon monoxide poisoning.

These threats have two distinctly different styles. Fire can start small but spread quickly, and smoke can be even more lethal than flames. Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas that is difficult to detect. But together, fire and carbon monoxide poisoning kill or injure thousands of people each year. In many cases, a monitored alarm system with detectors could have made the difference between safety and tragedy.

You've taken the first step by installing a home security system with burglary monitoring. The safety of your loved ones is priceless, so consider monitoring for fire and carbon monoxide as well. Let us put you in touch with your local Monitronics dealer to find out more about the full range of protection.
