With this being National Electrical Safety Month, it’s a great time to talk about the ways a wireless home security system can help your family maintain good electrical safety. Here are some of the ways it does this.
Protection from Electrical Fires
Sadly, electrical house fires are not rare. There are approximately 51,000 electrical fires every year. This results in around 500 deaths, 1,400 bodily injuries and $1.3 billion in property damage. In fact, electrical distribution systems are the third leading cause of structural house fires. If there’s an electrical fire in your home, your monitored smoke detector will sound and instantaneously contact the monitoring center. They will send the fire department immediately.
If there is an electrical fire at your home – or any kind of fire, for that matter – your wireless security system will still be able to communicate with the monitoring center. Unlike a traditional, hardwired security system, a wireless system relies on cellular technology, providing a continuous connection that can’t be interrupted by weather or environmental events. Help will arrive no matter what.
Keeping Watch Over the Kids
If your wireless security system includes video surveillance, that can also play a role in giving your family better electrical safety at home. Better than using a standard baby monitor to listen in on the kids while they’re napping or playing, parents can now install a camera in the nursery and watch over the youngsters from their smartphones. If your child is toddling near an electrical outlet, you can get to the bedroom quickly to keep them safe.
These are some of the vital ways a wireless home security system can help with your home’s electrical safety. To discuss upgrading your traditional system for electrical safety from wireless home security, Central PA homeowners can call Park Security Systems. We will be glad to speak with you.
