“Most people think about getting an alarm system to prevent property theft” say’s Doyle Serink from Ion Security. “People don’t realize that alarm systems can do much more. An alarm system can detect fire, smoke, water and low temperature conditions, notifying the homeowner and authorities quickly at first signs of trouble, often minimizing the damage and loss.”
