Home Automation Lets You Take a Proactive Approach to Your Safety
A large part of fire safety has to do with early detection. Fires can overtake a residence in two minutes, so it's important to alert family members as soon as a fire starts. That's why smoke detectors are legally required in all homes built in Buckhead and throughout the state of Georgia.
Every family should then develop an evacuation plan. Remember the safest route out of the house, establish an outdoor meeting point, and have a designated family member in charge of calling the authorities. If technology is so vital in detecting a fire, then why shouldn't it be part of this evacuation plan as well?
This blog highlights some ways you can use your home automation system to make sure your family is prepared if disaster strikes. Smoke detectors can work with the rest of your technology to activate automatic responses designed to facilitate evacuation.
