Triggers your alarm system when heat or smoke is detected. In order to add a monitored smoke detector, your house must first be up to Texas fire code. That can be achieved using battery operated non monitored smoke detectors found at hardware stores like Lowe’s or Home Depot, for as low as $10 ea. As a general rule, the Texas fire code requires a smoke detector (non monitored or monitored) in every room, bedroom, and hallway. Our recommendation is to achieve code by purchasing and installing non monitored smoke detectors first, and then have us install 1 or 2 monitored smoke detectors.
For liability reasons, and to uphold your warranty, Smith Thompson will only install equipment that is purchased from Smith Thompson.
