The advantages of a DAAF linked to remote monitoring

Categories: Blog

Since 2015, the Morange law has imposed the installation of smoke detectors, or DAAF, on all individuals and professionals. It must be said that the figures are enough to make pale, since there are more than 250,000 domestic fires per year in France, one every 2 minutes, responsible for 10,000 injuries including 800 deaths, mainly due to smoke poisoning. .
But if the DAAF is an effective way of warning homeowners in the event of a fire, this device also has its limits. Limits which can however be overcome thanks to remote monitoring.

Prevent the risk of fire with the smoke detector

The DAAF (Autonomous Smoke Detector) consists of a small box equipped with sensors capable of detecting the smoke emitted during the combustion of various materials: wood, paper, plastic, etc.

Placed on the ceiling in a strategic location, the smoke detector triggers a strident alarm at the slightest detection of smoke in the ambient air. The installation of this device thus makes it possible to effectively alert the inhabitants, even asleep. However, 70% of fatal fires take place at night.

Associate the DAAF with remote monitoring for enhanced protection

The smoke detector is a very effective fire prevention tool, provided the home is not empty! However, of the 250,000 domestic fires recorded in France each year, 7 out of 10 start during the day, at times when the owners are often absent. The DAAF alone is then of no use, except to hope that a neighbor hears the alarm and gives the alert …

To overcome this limitation and strengthen the security of your home, it is advisable to pair this device with a remote monitoring system that takes over in your absence. Connected to the system, the detector triggers its audible alert while communicating at the same time with the alarm center. Depending on the model, the latter is responsible for notifying you, for example by sending an SMS, and alerts the monitoring center which can call the fire brigade if the fire is confirmed.

How to install a smoke detector associated with a remote monitoring?

While the combination of a DAAF with a remote monitoring system is the perfect combination to protect your home from the risk of fire, even in your absence, its installation must be careful.

Do not hesitate to call on the service of experienced professionals, specialists in remote monitoring. Remote monitoring, leader for 20 years in the remote monitoring market in France, offers for example optional smoke detectors, connected 24 hours a day to the alarm center, and therefore to the monitoring center.

This approach guarantees you not only the correct functioning of your system, but also an optimal positioning of your smoke detectors. You will thus avoid the risk of untimely triggering, due for example to the release of steam in the kitchen, or worse the absence of detection due to incorrect positioning.
