Having known that, we asked the opinion of fire safety experts, who recommended that aside from preventive measures, the best fire protection is having an early fire detection system. They went on to recommend professionally monitored fire alarm systems.
Of course, there are companies that offer standalone, professionally monitored fire alarm systems, but if you want a budget-friendly solution, we recommend getting fire protection from a home security company. Although fire and home security are two different things, there are alarm companies that offer fire monitoring alongside security monitoring at no additional cost. One such company that we recommend is ADT. ADT is one of the top solutions in Gilbert, AZ and they also monitor for fire. All you need to do is to buy smoke alarms from them and they will monitor them along with your security system without any monthly fee increase. What makes them a good fit for the job is their capability to distinguish security alerts from fire alerts and determine what kind of help to send. If your security system sends an alert, they will dispatch the police; if your fire alarm sends an alert, they will call the fire department. This is vital because during home fires, every second matters.
