When seniors are hard of hearing, they often cannot hear the alarm on a conventional smoke detector. With an Automated Security Alert monitored smoke detector we can hear for them, commented Jason Seyler, Director of Life Safety.

The customers of Automated Security Alert can now sleep easier due to a brilliant and remarkably simple technological innovation: a monitored smoke detector. For clients who use the company’s ASA Pro medical alarm, a monitored smoke detector can be added for an extra five dollars a month. Jason Seyler, the company’s Director of Life Safety is excited about the new offering, “Having a monitored smoke detector is invaluable for the senior citizen population, which currently numbers more than nine million in the U.S. alone. When seniors are hard of hearing, they often cannot hear the alarm sounding on a conventional smoke detector. With an Automated Security Alert monitored smoke detector we can hear for them.”
Owning an ASA Pro medical alarm is a critical component to the monitored smoke detector. If the smoke detector senses smoke, the alarm will automatically sound and the ASA Pro medical alarm will automatically initiate a two-way conversation between the client and Automated Security Alert, who can let the client know what’s happening. Automated Security Alert can send emergency services right away if the client confirms there is an emergency, and if the client doesn’t respond emergency services can be sent automatically. This is a tremendous benefit if the senior is indeed home, and if they are not home the fire department can be dispatched right away to keep damage to the home as minimal as possible.
In addition, the smoke detector battery is monitored, and when the battery is low a signal is sent to Automated Security Alert, who then contacts the senior citizen to offer the option of have a technician change it or to have a family member change the battery. Automated Security Alert prides itself on their 24-hour a day, 365 days a year monitoring and phone service, which is always answered by a person in one of their United States-based call centers.
Automated Security Alert, Inc., has provided freedom and security since 1988 to over 60,000 consumers through the use of technology and services that enable seniors, physically-challenged persons and recovering patients to maintain an independent lifestyle in their homes.
