Fire & Carbon Monoxide Alarms

The safety and security of your family members and possessions is invaluable.

Fire Alarms

Many homes already are equipped with 110VAC or battery operated smoke detectors/fire alarms. The only problem is that these will burn with your home and valuables, if you are not home to hear them activate. SMG can install a smoke detector system to protect all of your valuables, lives and home 24 hours a day. Plus most insurance companies will recognize a monitored system of fire alarms, and offer you a discount on your home owners insurance.
