Fire and Carbon Monoxide: Two Deadly Intruders
Home security systems are geared toward stopping burglary and home intrusion, but there are two silent killers who can invade your home without triggering a burglar alarm. Fire and carbon monoxide are a double dose of danger for any homeowner. But with a little extra protection, plus affordable 24-hour monitoring, Monitronics can help you avoid becoming a victim.
Installing smoke and carbon monoxide detectors in your home is the best way to protect your family and property. It costs just a little more to include them as part of a Monitronics home security system, but it’s worth it. Detectors are your first line of defense against fire and carbon monoxide poisoning.
These threats have two distinctly different styles. Fire can start small but spread quickly, and smoke can be even more lethal than flames. Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas that is difficult to detect. But together, fire and carbon monoxide poisoning kill or injure thousands of people each year. In many cases, a monitored alarm system with detectors could have made the difference between safety and tragedy.
You’ve taken the first step by installing a home security system with burglary monitoring. The safety of your loved ones is priceless, so consider monitoring for fire and carbon monoxide as well. Let us put you in touch with your local Monitronics dealer to find out more about the full range of protection.

Professional and Timely
“I am so pleased with Monitronics. My system works excellently. I am so satisfied with your GREAT customer service. I spoke with Jodi and Juan today, and they both were very professional and timely. They were both so kind and very courteous. I left with the knowledge I needed and was given all of the consideration and respect required for great customer service. I will indeed recommend Monitronics to anyone I know looking for an alarm system. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience with your customer service representatives.”
We feel so much more secure
“We have been long-time customers and have enjoyed the professionalism and great service of Monitronics security for years! We don’t know what we’d do without it in a world that we all live in today that is so dangerous and unstable. But with Monitronics on the job, we feel so much more secure. We recently moved, and Mark – a Monitronics security professional tech – hooked us right up with everything we needed and then some. We are so satisfied and happy! We now have everything we need. We can come home at night and not have to worry about going to sleep at night, or having someone break in and do the “unthinkable,” or having no protection from our local police department. Thank you to our local police department, and thank you to Monitronics!”
We really love our alarm system
“I just wanted to say that we really love our alarm system! In July of 2013 there was a fire in our kitchen. The alarm system notified us that there was front and back door had been tampered with, we rushed home and found the kitchen on fire!”
Severe weather alerts
“I am changing banks and needed to update to the new bank account for autopay. Victor took care of it! In addition, I wanted to say thanks to Monitronics for not only the “security” aspect of the system but the fact that, in recent bad weather with imminent tornadoes, my system even warned me of that! It is so greatly appreciated!.”
Thank you, AlphaOne
“After having our alarm system monitored by ADT for the past 20 years, we were hesitant to switch alarm companies. Wow, are we glad we did! The whole experience, from the installation to the monitoring, has been great. The keypads we have had installed by Monitronics are awesome. It was well worth the change. Thank you, AlphaOne.”
They protected her and my children
“One morning when I was leaving for work, I noticed a car circling the block and slowing in front of my house. I woke my wife before I left, and she contacted Monitronics. They stayed on the phone with her until the sheriff arrived. They protected her and my children from a possible intruder when I could not be there. They also have a great understanding that when I cook, I tend to set off the fire alarm. They always call to make sure all is well!”
