Our sensors detect changes in water use, light, sound and movement within and around a home. We monitor your home in order to detect issues to make you aware before it is too late.
Knowing that there is an emergency and not knowing what it is can feel worse than not knowing at all. Our live cameras keep you aware of all activity in and around your home, so you can be sure that your property and loved ones are protected.
From a single camera and monitor to complex video surveillance systems, HD quality IP camera systems can provide security for a wide range of businesses and home applications, and can be easily viewed from a smartphone or mobile device.
A good video surveillance system can make your residence or business safer, more efficient, and less prone to theft and accidents. Specifically, video surveillance can provide many benefits:
- Reduce shrinkage by catching shoplifters
- Deter potential thieves
- Monitor cash registers
- Record evidence to prevent bogus accident claims
- Identify visitors and employees
- Monitor hazardous work areas
- Increase security in and around business premises and parking lots
- Meet insurance requirements
- See who is at your door, or moving around your property
- Keep an eye on pets, nannies, babysitters or cleaning services
- Verify that liquor or gun cabinets are secure
- Check on the status of a second home or garage
Our systems monitor smoke, carbon monoxide, and heat to protect your home or office building. Don’t let your home or office become a casualty to an accident.
You can add a monitored smoke detector to your home security system. When the detector senses smoke in your home, it sends a signal to your alarm’s control panel, which then contacts the central monitoring station to contact your local fire department. We also install commercial fire alarm systems to protect office buildings.
Carbon Monoxide Detection
(CO), an invisible, odorless, tasteless, and highly toxicgas, is in all residences and commercial buildings in varying amounts. It typically originates from flame-fueled devices, such as heating systems, power tools, automobiles, and gas ranges or ovens. CO can become deadly when CO concentrations increase if these devices malfunction or aren’t properly ventilated. Often referred to as “the silent killer,” CO is virtually impossible to detect without sensing technology, even at dangerous levels. At elevated levels, CO can prevent the human body from effectively delivering oxygen to the heart, brain, and other vital organs, causing immediate physiological effects and eventually leading to unconsciousness or even death.
Protecting lives and property is our mutual business. But did you know some of the leading causes of property claims are due to water damage?
We’ve got the solution.
Ideal for both residential and commercial settings, our environmental sensors:
- Monitor kitchens, basements, bathrooms, laundry rooms, boilers and more
- Help minimize damages due to flooding, faulty appliances or plumbing leaks
- Help alleviate health risks from mold caused by water damage
A temperature sensor will alert the alarm panel if the ambient temperature reaches a certain high or low level. This type of protection is invaluable to anyone living in the harsh New England winters.
Many full-time residents with alarm systems tell us that they are home all the time and wonder why they would need monitoring. However, people need to take into account the frequency and duration of their absences from home or business – rather than just their occupancy. Who is home, when they are not? Who will hear and respond to the alarm? Etc. If that system is not monitored, less than half the protection the customer expects is being provided.
For optimum around-the-clock protection, you can choose to have your alarm system monitored by a Central Monitoring Station. Hirtle Electric and Alarm can arrange this service for a nominal monthly fee. Since many municipalities in North America prohibit alarm systems from being connected directly to the police departments or fire departments, a Central Monitoring Station provides the best alternative.
Your emergency signals will be received there – twenty-four hours a day – seven days a week – three hundred and sixty-five days a year – whether you are at your premises or not. The security dispatchers are always there – ready to respond to your potential crisis and to offer protection for your family, your premises, your business and your possessions.
Many insurance companies provide discounts on building insurance plans for customers who have a monitored alarm system. Call your insurance company for more details about this added beneficial service.
It doesn’t matter whether you are away from your home or business an hour: a day, a week, or a month. Your property will be electronically protected every minute of every day – waiting for that critical time when assistance is needed. We see to it that the appropriate help is quickly dispatched whenever necessary – an important consideration for your total security.
