Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. I already have smoke alarms. Why should I consider new equipment?

    If you built a home or purchased a home already equipped with smoke alarms, you likely have ionization smoke alarms based on 40 year old technology which cost less than $5.00 to manufacture in China.

  2. Why is pricing not discussed during your fire safety seminars?

    If you attend one of our group seminars at an office, restaurant, civic organization, or church, such organizations usually request that we refrain from selling product during the seminar. Also, each family/home has different needs, so until our Safety Advisors have an opportunity to inspect your current equipment and home, it’s impossible to determine costs.

  3. How are your smoke alarms different/better?

    As a U.S. made product, our quality is unmatched. Industry experts recommend dual-protection equipment, so our combination alarms utilize multiple detection methods such as optical sensors, heat sensors, and rate-of-rise technologies. In addition, since you never know where a fire will start, we have also incorporated Wireless Technology which utilizes state-of-the-art radio frequency to signal all smoke alarms to activate when one alarm is triggered.

  4. Can I use traditional smoke detectors in areas like my kitchen, attic, and garage?

    Traditional ionization alarms have a high incidence of false alarms under ideal conditions, so areas of your home where gases, vapor, engine exhaust, and dust are present will only create further false alarms. Such areas of your home are often high risk areas which is why we recommend supplemental heat detectors in areas where traditional alarms are not recommended.

  5. In addition to state-of-the-art detection equipment, what can I do to protect my family from the devastation of fire?

    During our safety seminars and in-home inspections, our safety advisors cover many educational and informative recommendations to protect your family such as a personalized fire escape plan; discussing high risk areas; and behavioral habits. The decision whether to protect your family is ultimately yours to make. Either way, you will learn important information related to fire safety.
