Properly functioning fire alarms systems, smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors are essential to preventing fire-related deaths. 60% of home fire deaths result from fires in buildings without functioning smoke detectors, and 38% of deaths occurred in fires where there were no smoke detectors at all.

Mountain View Security Systems installs smoke detectors and fire alarms as part of its monitoring systems. Our detectors are wired and also have a battery backup. When an alarm activates, the Mountain View Security Systems monitoring center will call your home or business, and if no one answers or is home, the local fire department is contacted immediately.
Mountain View Security Systems technicians will install, test and inspect your smoke alarms to ensure they are functioning properly.

Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless, and tasteless gas that is extremely difficult to detect. Carbon monoxide can cause sickness, coma, or death when it accumulates in enclosed spaces. This can be caused by a faulty furnace, boiler, or other appliances like a stove.
Our team installs carbon monoxide detectors in homes and businesses in addition to our alarm and other fire safety system. Mountain View Security Systems provides carbon monoxide monitoring services to keep you, your family or your employees safe from harm.
The State of Vermont law requires carbon monoxide detectors in each unit of multi-family dwellings and also requires that they be included in any new construction of single-family homes, hotels, motels and college residences such as dorms, sorority and fraternity houses. Contact us for more information about these systems and the regulations that must be met upon installation.
