Fire Safety for Your Home
Make sure your home is prepared and up to code
The National Fire Protection Association’s research data shows that since smoke detectors became standard in 95% of homes, fire related deaths decreased by over 50%. The CDC found that during 2010–2015, a total of 2,244 deaths resulted from unintentional carbon monoxide poisoning, with the highest numbers of deaths occurring in winter months.

Modern Fire and CO2 Detection for Austin Homes and Businesses
Combo Smoke and CO2 Detectors and Integrated Smart Systems
We utilize cutting-edge smoke and carbon monoxide detectors for both residential and commercial customers. Bryant offers everything from modern smoke/CO combo detectors, to smart detectors that can integrate with your mobile devices and home or building management systems. These smart systems can alert you to alarms even when you aren’t home.
Interconnected Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors
The most effective type of smoke and carbon monoxide detector technology is an interconnected home system. Using either wired or wireless connectivity, smoke detectors can set off a house-wide alarm in the event of smoke or carbon monoxide detection on any single unit. There are advantages to each system of interconnection.
Hardwired Smoke Detectors
With a hardwired system, individual devices are literally connected to one another using wires run throughout your home. These wires also power the devices, removing the nuisance of being woken up by a low-battery alarm on your detection device. Of course, many units include a battery backup to power the unit in the case of a power outage.
Hardwired smoke detectors require professional installation and maintenance.
Smart Smoke Detector Systems
Smart smoke detectors are the newest development in home protection technology. Companies like Nest have developed smart systems that can be operated and maintained using a smartphone app. These devices offer a suite of interactive services to help you stay on top of your home’s preventative security, including a test function, alarm hush commands, and access from all attached smartphones – even when you’re not home.
Wireless Smoke Detectors
Wireless smoke detectors are very similar to standard battery-operated units. The main difference is that they communicate with each other via RF radio. If smoke is detected by any of the connected units, they will all sound an alarm, so you are alerted to a potential fire or carbon monoxide leak throughout your home.
Carbon Monoxide detectors
Carbon monoxide is a harmful gas that is created when burning fuel – gas stoves, generators, and automobiles all create carbon monoxide. Installing a CO detector in your home can alert you if CO levels become elevated. Many up-to-date smoke detectors also include a carbon monoxide detector, but some homeowners prefer to use two separate units instead.
