Smoke Detector

Sounds an alarm in your home and alerts our staff.

Price: £2.30 per week

Requires an in-home personal alarm package from Centra Pulse. This price excludes VAT.

How does it work? 

The monitored smoke detector detects smoke as a result of a fire. When activated it sounds an alarm in your home and transmits an alarm to a telecare alarm unit (required). 

The telecare alarm unit will then send an alert to our telecare monitoring centre. Our staff will identify which sensor has been triggered and take immediate action.

Never ignored

Even if we receive no response from you, for example if you cannot hear the alarm or are not at home, we will still contact the fire service on your behalf. We can provide vital information stored on our secure data system about you and your home to help them respond quickly.

Our monitored smoke detectors perform best when installed on the ceiling in the centre of a room. If this is not possible then they need to be at least 50cm from the wall. It is advisable to have detectors installed in every bedroom so the alarm can be heard during the night. If the house has several floors, it is also a good idea to have one installed on each landing to provide maximum protection.
