Smoke and Heat Detectors and Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Capital Security Group offers smoke detectors, heat detectors, and carbon monoxide detectors that are monitored.

This service can be a life saving and property saving component of your home and business security. True security offers protection from all threats – burglary, fire, flood, and carbon monoxide (CO).

Smoke Detectors / Heat Detectors

Why our customers prefer monitored smoke detectors:

I didn't replace the batteries or my smoke detector failed.
  • Many people disengage their retail smoke detector when the battery needs changing to stop the annoying beeping. While monitored smoke detectors still require batteries, you will receive reminders from us
  • Recent statistics have shown that roughly one-quarter of home fire deaths occurred in homes where smoke detectors were present but failed to operate
I didn't hear the alarm or I was away on vacation.
  • Even if you and your family are sound sleepers and do not hear the beeping of an unmonitored smoke detector to alert you to fire in your home, with a monitored smoke detector our monitoring station will have received signals and despatched your local fire department
  • If you are away from home, our monitoring station will respond to signals and despatch your local fire department
Where do I need to place monitored smoke detectors?
  • Monitored smoke detectors are mandatory in schools, hospitals, and many public buildings
  • A smoke detector should be placed outside every bedroom, in hallways, and on every storey of your home
Why is a Honeywell smoke detector safest for my property?
  • Multi-Criteria Detection
    Smoke and heat alarms typically use an optical chamber to “see” the smoke. However, this can lead to nuisance alarms from toaster fumes or even cigarette smoke. Also, certain fire types are recognized with some delays. Multi-criteria detection adds a thermal sensor and uses an intelligent algorithm to improve reaction speed, and reduce the number of nuisance alarms.
  • Low Profile Design
    Honeywell’s slim, low profile design with soft edges makes the unit seem a lot smaller than it really is. Human-centred design techniques have been employed to ensure aesthetic appeal for homeowners.
  • Full 10 Year Lifespan and Warranty
    Honeywell’s full product lifespan warranty is one of the most comprehensive in the industry. This is backed by more than 50 years of fire detection system expertise. Honeywell is one of the few companies in the market to offer a full 10 year lifespan and 10 year warranty on its smoke and heat alarms.
  • Automatic Self-adjustment / Self Checks
    Honeywell’s smoke and heat alarms have been fitted with an automatic self test function which ensures the unit is functioning properly. Every 10 seconds, the unit tests critical systems to ensure accurate alerts are delivered rapidly once a fire is detected.
  • Clearly Visible Alarms
    Honeywell has integrated a set of clearly visible LED lights into the perimeter of the unit, ensuring the alarm can be seen from all angles. This feature supports people with hearing difficulties.
  • Dirt Compensation
    Honeywell’s unique dirt compensation ensures that nuisance alarms are kept to a minimum. By differentiating dust from smoke, the X-Series smoke and heat alarms only sound when a hazard is detected.
  • All models also feature a restorable, built-in, fixed temperature 135°F (57.2°C) thermal detector that is also capable of sensing a pre-freeze condition if the temperature is below 41°F (5°C).

Getting started with your monitored smoke alarm:

  • We monitor your smoke detector 24/7, even during power outages – independent of your monitored alarm system
  • Your insurance company may offer a discount for a monitored smoke detector
  • There are no additional monitoring fees with a monitored smoke detector, simply the upfront cost of purchasing one

Detectors are part of your alarm system package.

Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Capital Security Group’s CO detectors take the most accurate readings of CO concentrations.

Low levels of carbon monoxide over time may be hazardous.
High concentrations present an immediate danger.

Why do I need a CO detector?
  • Carbon monoxide is a colourless, odourless, tasteless yet highly toxic gas
  • CO is produced when flame-fueled devices such as gas ovens or heating systems malfunction or are not properly ventilated
  • CO poisoning is the leading cause of airborne poisoning
Where do I need to place monitored CO detectors?
  • CSG recommends that a CO detector should be installed in any room that contains a fuel-burning appliance (but not within 10 feet of a cooking appliance), and on every floor of the building.
Why is a Honeywell smoke detector safest for my property?
  • CAlarm Levels
    EN50291 defines the CO level at which the device must and must not go into alarm. The higher the CO concentration, the quicker the device will go into alarm. This is based on the fact that the poisoning impact of CO is determined by CO concentration and exposure time. The alarm points ensure that the user is always warned when critical situations occur. The alarm levels are as follows:

    30ppm (parts per million): No alarm before 120 minutes.
    50ppm: Alarm between 60-90 minutes.
    100ppm: Alarm between 10-40 minutes.
    300ppm: Alarm within 3 minutes
  • Pre-Alarm
    Dangerous CO levels may be caused by faulty appliances, which start to leak more and more CO over time. If activated, the pre-alarm will provide early warning of such situations even if the alarm levels are not being reached. If pre-alarms occur frequently it is recommended to call an professional technician for further investigation. The pre-alarm will start giving indications once 25% of the alarm level (time and concentration) has been reached. For example, if 43ppm CO is present, the pre-alarm will start after 15-23 minutes.
  • Low Level Monitoring Mode
    In order to avoid unnecessary alarms due to short term CO peaks (e.g. from cigarette smoke) the EN standard prohibits any alarms before 3 minutes of CO presence, or for CO concentrations lower than 30ppm. The low level monitoring mode allows you to temporarily use the unit as a measuring device. Once activated, the units will instantly flash the blue ventilate light if the CO level rises above 10ppm. Units with a display will also show the currently present CO level.
  • Sensor Technology
    The sensor plays a critical role in ensuring adequate CO detection. Devices use Honeywell manufactured Electrochemical Cells: Ecosure® (7 years life and warranty) and Ecosure X® (10 years life and warranty). Decades of experience and rigorous quality control give us confidence that the cells work for the lifetime of the alarm.
  • Self-test
    Honeywell’s CO alarms perform an automatic self-test for the electronics every 60 minutes.
  • Alarm Memory (End user)
    CO does not leave any trace that can be detected by humans and you might have a malfunctioning appliance, which makes the alarm go off whilst you are out. The memory function will keep the Red Light flashing (LCD version will also show the PPM levels) until the button is pressed or 7 days have passed.
  • Event Logger (Professionals)
    Honeywell’s CO alarms record a history of events, which can be downloaded by professionals. This provides a more in-depth analysis of CO events such as detailed information on the CO concentration of the last 7 days and weekly maximums for the whole operating life. Dates of alarm events are recorded
  • End-of-life
    CO alarms do not last forever and should be exchanged after their end-of-life date. The lifetime is mainly determined by the CO sensor. The EN standard for CO alarms therefore requires all CO alarms to have an end-of-life signal, which is implemented on all Honeywell CO alarms.
  • There are no additional monitoring fees associated with a monitored CO detector, simply the upfront cost of purchasing one.
  • CSG recommends that a CO detector should be installed in any room that contains a fuel-burning appliance (but not within 10 feet of a cooking appliance), and on every floor of the building.
