Today, we’re continuing our topic of what you can do to ensure you’re reaping all of the benefits of your Honeywell home security system.

So far, we’ve talked about the fact that your Honeywell security system comes with so much more than video monitoring features. With your system, you’ll be able to secure and control all elements of your property from the outside in. You’ll won't have to worry about the wrong person accessing your fence, shed, or patio. 

But what about the silent security and health risks to your home? Rest assured that your system comes with carbon monoxide and smoke detectors that will keep you safe even when your system isn’t armed.

“Each year, there are as many as 20,000 emergency room visits for exposure to carbon monoxide.” - National Center for Environmental Health

Prevent disaster before it happens

Honeywell systems come with life safety sensors that are connected to your alarm system. This makes them different from traditional smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Life safety sensors are monitored 24 hours a day 7 days a week and provide automatic notifications to Honeywell’s central monitoring station. When something triggers the alarm, emergency personnel are summoned to your property if smoke or carbon monoxide is detected.

Are you living in an area that frequently experiences thunderstorms or power outages? Don’t stress! Your wireless security system will continue to protect you and you family even when the power goes out. 

“62% of home fire deaths resulted from fires in homes without working smoke alarms.” - National Fire Protection Agency

If you’re someone who tends to forget to arm your system (don’t worry, we all do it), the good news is that these detectors are still working for you. Whether you’re at home or away, awake or asleep, your system’s fire and carbon monoxide detectors are still on. In other words, you don’t have to alarm your system in order for it to protect you and your family. 

Check with your insurance company

Many insurance companies offer additional discounts for homeowners who have monitored smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, so be sure to look into it. You could put the money you save on insurance to good use such as a vacation

Your system is set up for emergency help

Your system comes with portable panic devices that can be custom-programmed to call the police, fire department, and medical response teams, so carry them with you. They’re water resistant, which means if you need to get out during a storm, grab one of them! Help will be summoned to the premises within minutes. This also makes the system ideal for any elder parents or family members you have living with you, so there’s no need to invest in a secondary security system geared toward senior citizens.
