Fire, flood & carbon monoxide protection
In 37% of homes where fire and death occur, the smoke alarm was inoperable. At Ambusch Security we can install a monitored smoke detector as part of your alarm system. That detector will always trigger an immediate alarm if any fire or smoke is detected; our monitoring station will contact you and immediately dispatch the fire department to your home whether you’re there or not.
Have peace of mind knowing that in the case of a fire, your family, your pets, your belongings and your home will be in secure hands. Having a monitored smoke alarm in your home often gets you significant discounts on your home insurance!
Every winter Central Alberta residents also face the risk of low temperatures that lead to burst pipes and resulting flooding. In spring and summer, stormy weather with heavy rainfall can end up as water in your basement or crawlspace. You can’t stop the ice or rain, but consider a monitored flood sensor to give you an early warning so you can contain the damage.
Fire & Smoke Detection
A monitored fire/smoke detector issues a signal through your alarm system when trouble is detected and is immediately acted upon by our 24/7 monitoring personnel. You’ll be immediately contacted and authorities promptly dispatched! A local audible or visual alarm from the detector also occurs, of course.
Carbon Monoxide Detection
Carbon monoxide [CO] poisoning causes over 300 deaths a year in North America. CO is colourless, odourless and undetectable by humans. A 24/7 monitored CO detector can sense very low CO concentrations over a long period of time as well as high concentrations over a short period of time. If dangerous levels are detected, you’ll be alerted immediately and emergency help sent if required.
Flood & Water Leak Detection
Flood related damage is one of the most common insurance claims in Canada. Early notification can prevent or reduce the effects of water being in your home when it shouldn’t be! We can install 24/7 monitored flood sensors in basements, laundry rooms, or near any area that could be impacted by water ingress or leaks. With flood detection, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that if a water event happens, you’ll be immediately informed and able to react.
Extreme Temperature Sensors
At Ambusch we understand how cold Central Alberta can be in the winter and how hot it gets in the summer. From frozen pipes bursting in the winter to summer heat shortening the lifespan of your shingled roof, extreme weather can take a toll. We can install monitored temperature sensors that actively watch home temperatures, immediately alerting you to unexpected changes and saving you from potentially costly and unfortunate outcomes.
