The Importance of Door Alarms


Who is watching your house when you're away? It can be more than your neighbor. While much of your belongings could be easily replaced, most of your "special" souvenirs and valuable items might be irreplaceable. If you are uncertain whether you need a door alarm system, here are several reasons why you should install one.

1.Prevention of Crime - The door alarm is an extremely adaptable shock sensor alarm. It is very suitable for office, home, hotel, or travel and it needs no installing and assembly. You just simply dangle it on any doorknob. Once installed, it instantaneously picks up any vibration. Once the alarm is tripped, it is going to produce a 98dB warning sound for 20-30 seconds, and automatically reset in 3-5 seconds. The sound the device creates is loud enough to disturb the burglar and once he or she begins to panic, it is more likely that the person will be captured before he or she does the crime. The level of sensitivity of the alarm can be easily adjusted using a screwdriver. It is perfect to keep you and your household safe from harm. It is perfect for anyone and works extremely well almost everywhere.

2.Fire Detection - Aside from intruders, fire can also pose danger to your home. When a fire starts, the best decision is to put it out right away before it builds up. What is good with door alarm systems is that it can help avoid fire. Like motion detectors, the smoke detector is also included in the control panel. As soon as the sensors identify the smoke, you will be alerted at once. In case you are away and can't take care of the situation, the control panel can send information to your company so that they can notify the firefighters.

3.Home insurance discount - The installation of door alarm systems is not only beneficial for your home safety. In addition, it is useful as regards to property insurance. Home insurance providers offer special discounts to properties with alarm systems because the risk of robbery is really a lot lower as compared to those without alarm system.

Once an intruder gains entry to your garage, they are able to work undetected and the tools that they need are usually right there. They may be able to open your garage door, and back their vehicle inside to take out items from your house secretly. However, door alarms can be a dosage to their own medicine. The value of a door alarm system cannot be underestimated.

Fire Suppression In The Workplace: Keeping Safe And Staying In Business


A fire in the workplace is a dangerous thing. It can mean loss of life, loss of information, loss of workplace records and loss of a facility in which to work. Even more discouraging is that a large majority of businesses that suffer a fire, wind up closing or filing for bankruptcy within a year of the fire. But, the most distressing aspect is that many workplace fires could have been prevented, or significantly minimized had a fire suppression system been in place.

Every year, there are thousands of dollars spent on recovering from workplace related fires. However, when companies are willing to take the steps to minimize fire, the amount spent could be much less. But what fire suppression and prevention steps can companies take to minimize workplace fires? Thankfully, there are several options to consider.

How to Minimize Fires in the Office or Warehouse Style Workplace

Have a dry-gas sprinkler head in server rooms. Because water can be especially damaging to your records, consider having dry-gas sprinklers that will either dilute the oxygen or chemically cool any flames that may be in the room. The dry gas approach will also minimize the amount of smoke and soot damage.

Install a fire alarm system specifically for the data center. Perhaps the worst place to have a fire within a business is wherever the main data is stored. Be it in paper form of electronic, fire can still cause serious damage! To protect your company's data, be sure that there is a smoke detector that will test the air quality of the for dust particles and know the difference between simply hot air, and actual smoke. Often times, a defective or inaccurate fire suppression system can be triggered by not being set correctly. When this happens, spaces may be damaged because of the sprinkler system-this is just a damaging as loss of information due to a fire!

Have a system that can be monitored remotely, so that you are aware of any changes within your building.
How to Minimize Fires in a Restaurant Environment

Within the food industry, work related fires are more of a risk factor, simply because of the nature of the work. Fortunately, there are a variety of fire suppression steps a restaurant can take.

Wire the exhaust fan to activate whenever you turn on your cooking appliances.
Keep your cooking equipment under the hood and in its appropriate place.
Should there be a fire, activate the fire suppression system before you reach for a fire extinguisher.
Have a fire suppression that is UL 300 compliant.
Use an authorized fire suppression distributer, so you can be certain you are doing your part to protect your restaurant.
Fire suppression is an important part of business management. By being proactive in the workplace, you can do your part to avoid being one of the statistics.
