Secure Pacific, a verified security system company, offers security solutions to keep both home and business owners safe from the elements in light of Arson Awareness Week, May 5-11.
Every year, arson results in nearly 17,000 fires, $593 million in property damage, and 280 deaths. To combat this growing trend, the latest advances in business alarms and home security systems are specifically designed to protect families and businesses from environmental threats and damages with vigilant monitoring 24/7.
Home environmental monitoring systems protect families from major losses caused by environmental factors, from flooding due to bad plumbing to fire damage from an unattended stovetop. Water and fire detection is ideal for family residences, vacation homes and rental homes.
Annually, Secure Pacific estimates that water damage costs homeowners more than $3 billion in preventable losses, not including the memories lost from spoiled family heirlooms, photo albums and electronic data. The residential security company offers home monitoring systems to detect moisture by placing sensors near water-using appliances, such as washing machines and dishwashers. When water comes in contact with the sensor, a wireless alert is sent to Secure Pacific’s Verification Center® to automatically shut off water flow to the house to prevent further damage.
Not only can fire put lives at risk, it can also cause extreme damage to your property. According to the Occupational Health and Safety Administration, fires cost schools and businesses more than $2.3 billion in damaged property annually. High risk factors for commercial fires include faulty wiring or electrical cords, improper storage close to a flammable heat source, improper maintenance and/or use of heat sources and smoking.
Secure Pacific specializes in commercial fire alarms for businesses and organizations to monitor signals from smoke detectors, sprinkler systems and pull stations to detect the presence of smoke, heat and carbon monoxide. Like other business security systems offered by Secure Pacific, such as intruder detection, video surveillance and keyless entry, fire alarms are monitored by verification specialists to confirm alarms and alert authorities.
Fast, verified response can minimize losses and save lives. Both home and business owners can gain peace of mind with environmental monitoring systems from Secure Pacific.
