  • Survey – If you require more than one unit, we will survey your property and find the alarm(s) and installation method best suited to your facility’s needs.
  • Tamper Resistant – We will ensure that your alarm is tamper proof immediately upon activation.
  • Joint Alarms (Optional) -We also sell and install joint Smoke/CO alarms that will give you dual protection against fires and Carbon Monoxide leaks.

If your alarm is chirping or reaching the end of its 5-year life, it needs to be replaced. A malfunctioning or old alarm is just as bad as no alarm at all.

Relevant Code:

NFPA 72 –Requires smoke detectors to be, at a minimum, present in any sleeping area. (Nationally) LL 112 & 75 – Requires battery operated alarms to be replaced at least once every 5 years or once the manufacturer’s suggested lifespan has passed. (New York City)
Steven Nelson’s Law – Requires all New York State commercial dwellings and indoor places of public assembly to have at least one working Carbon Monoxide alarm. (Chapter 540 – New York City, Chapter 541 – New York State)

Most New York City buildings classified as occupancy group J-1, J-2, J-3, G, H-2, F-1, F-3, F-4 are, or will be, required to have CO and Smoke detectors.
