How Home Security Helps in Electrical Safety

How Home Security Helps in Electrical Safety
Brent Mele
It’s time to talk about the ways your wireless home security system can help with your home’s electrical safety. Consider these electrical safety advantages your system can provide.

Electrical Fire Protection

Unfortunately, electrical fires at home are not rare. They actually account for approximately 51,000 fires each year, resulting in nearly 500 deaths, more than 1,400 injuries, and $1.3 billion in property damage. Furthermore, electrical distribution systems are the third leading cause of home structure fires. If an electrical fire happens at your home, your monitored smoke detectors will sound and simultaneously contact the central station. Fire and rescue will be on their way immediately.

Uninterrupted Connection

Speaking of electrical fires, they will not prevent your wireless security system from alerting the central station. In fact, no fire will. Unlike a hardwired security system, a wireless security system relies on cellular technology to connect to the central station. That connection can’t be interrupted by weather or environmental events – and when it comes to intrusion, no one can cut the wire to disconnect the system. That’s because there’s no wire to cut.

Monitoring Babies and Toddlers

If your wireless home security system includes video cameras, they can also play a role in providing your family with better electrical safety. Better than using a simple audio monitor to listen in on babies and young children, parents can now place a camera in the nursery. That way, they can watch over young children from their smartphones. If your baby or toddler is reaching toward an electrical outlet, you can intervene immediately to prevent a tragic accident. These are some of the key ways a wireless home security system can help with your home’s electrical safety.
