Fire Security

Comprehensive fire monitoring service separate to intruder alarm systems.

Fire, Heat, Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detection with Fire Brigade Response

Our home security and safety installations can be fitted with fire, heat, smoke and carbon monoxide detection devices. Systems can also be supplied with manned monitoring to offer immediate response from the emergency services. 

These life-preserving devices run independently from the intruder functions of the security system and can save lives, affording you and your family the security that you deserve.

As part of the Connect 4 Security family of systems, our fire, heat, smoke and carbon monoxide detection products are manufactured from the highest quality materials and are professionally installed to provide the earliest warnings of a fire.

With most fire fatalities occurring at night and as a result of being overcome by carbon monoxide or smoke inhalation, it is essential that you can rely on your fire detection system to provide adequate levels of early alert and can raise the appropriate response.

Fire Risk: What are the statistics?

Data collected from 'Fire Statistics: England, April 2015 to March 2016'

The risk of fire in the home is low but remains a great threat, despite falling levels of fatalities in the last few decades. Greater public awareness of the dangers of how fires start, combined with increased ownership of detection devices, has helped. However, the statistics still make some alarming reading.

  • In 2015/16 there were 303 fire related fatalities and 7,661 fire related casualties.
  • 89% of households have a working smoke alarm, up from 76% in 2001 but still leaving over 2 million homes unprotected in the UK.
  • Smoke detectors alone do not guarantee safety from risk of fatality in the event of a fire. In 2015/2016, 33% of fatalities were from homes that had a working smoke detector.
  • In 31% of fires, a smoke detector was present but either failed to operate or effectively raise an alarm.
  • People between the age of 65 and 79 are twice as likely to die in a house fire than the average. Over the age of 80 and this rises again by a further 68%.

Carbon Monoxide: The Silent Killer

According to the Office of National Statistics, Carbon Monoxide poisoning was responsible for 53 deaths in England and Wales in 2015. This is in addition to fatalities as a result of fires. This highly toxic gas has no odour, no taste and no colour. It is an invisible but deadly threat. As well as the threat to life, carbon monoxide poisoning can pose a serious threat to your health. In 2013, 4,000 people were admitted to Accident & Emergency from exposure to this gas with 200 people being hospitalised. There are estimated to be many more incidences of slow but steady build ups of toxicity in domestic homes that are having a negative impact on overall general health. Long term exposure can result in major neurological damage. ​Early detection of a carbon monoxide leak could not only save your life but prevent ongoing health problems.

Rapid Response: Fire Services

The time it takes for the emergency services to response to a report of fire can make all the difference in preserving life and your property.

Connect 4 Monitored Security’s fire, heat, smoke and carbon monoxide detection systems are monitored around the clock to offer you peace of mind that your family and home are protected. 

Our fire, heat, smoke and carbon monoxide detection systems work separately to your intruder alarm and can be supplied at an additional cost along with other features such as flood detection, perimeter protection and medical and/or police response services.
