Fire Alarm System for Domestic Purposes

House fires can be devastating and cause a huge loss not only to property, but also to the lives of loved ones. This is why smoke detectors are now so common in many domestic properties.

However, there are more advanced and integrated fire alarm systems that can do more to protect your home and family. Here at Metro Security, we understand how important that protection is, which is why we can provide a tailored package to help ensure the safety of your home.

Our experience and training

Since 1978, we have worked hard to provide the best service for our customers. This has involved not only using the latest technology of the time, but also ensuring all our technicians and engineers are fully trained to the highest standard.

We now cover the whole of the UK, and have a number of technicians with over 15 years’ experience. This enables us to give you the best service and tailor your package to your requirements.

All that you need to do is contact a member of our friendly team, and we can organise a free site survey to evaluate your requirements.

Why do you need a fire alarm?

Many people rely on smoke detectors in their homes to warn them about smoke or fire. These are a valuable addition to your home and have an important role to play in your house safety.

Metro Security can offer a solution that has the same functionality, and more. We only use the latest technology to offer you the best possible protection.

If you have a large home, then you may need a more integrated fire alarm system that can cover the whole house. This can be especially true in older houses where there could be fewer fire protective materials and small areas that may not get detected in the event of a fire.


A fire alarm can also offer the peace of mind that comes with knowing your house and family are covered by an advanced fire system.

If you want a more integrated fire safety system, please feel free to contact us at Metro Security so that we can discuss all your needs.

Our home fire detection services

Here at Metro Security, we understand that no two homes will have the same needs. This is why we offer a range of fire detection devices that can all be incorporated into a tailored service.

Although many of the smoke detectors on the market will give you a good warning, they may not give you enough time to evacuate safely. A dedicated fire alarm system will give you an early warning, allowing you time to act in a safe and controlled manner.

Our tailored service includes:

  • Heat detectors that can detect a sharp rise in temperature within the usual range of household heating
  • Smoke detectors that can alert everyone in the house if smoke is present
  • External sounders to alert those outside your property that there is an emergency
  • 24/7 monitoring is invaluable if you are away from the house and a fire occurs. The team at the control centre will be notified by the fire alarm and they can then send the fire service
  • Professional installation by highly trained technicians
  • Once the fire alarms are installed, you will be able to benefit from regular maintenance of the system. This will ensure all the components are tested and replaced if needed



Things to consider when choosing your fire alarm package

There are certain devices that will need to be considered when speaking to our team, so that you can have the assurance of the best protection against any eventuality.

  • Larger homes may need additional smoke alarms fitted so that they can get the best coverage
  • Interconnected smoke alarms are a good idea so that if one detects smoke, they will all sound an alarm
  • If anyone in the household has a hearing impairment, then special alarms can be fitted that either have strobe lighting or activate a bed shaker
  • Carbon monoxide detectors are also vital devices, as they can detect high levels of carbon monoxide that people in the home will not be able to detect

All of these will be explained to you when our technician discusses the requirements of your house.

Our survey and installation

When you contact us, we will arrange a free site survey to assess your needs at a time that suits you.

Once the survey is completed, you can ask any questions that you may have about the survey or the installation. Our staff are all trained to answer whatever questions you may have.

An appointment will be arranged to install the fire alarm system at a time that is convenient to you. We will also give you a timeframe for how long it will likely take to complete the installation.

Our engineers will always ensure that during installation, any wiring or devices are hidden as much as possible.

When the installation is completed, we will thoroughly test the equipment to ensure everything is working as it should. We will also take the time to walk you through the new system, so that you are aware of how it operates.

If you already have a security system in place, then your fire alarm system can be integrated into this to give complete protection.

If at any time you are unsure about how the alarm works, or you experience any faults, we will be happy to chat with you and send out an engineer if necessary.

You will also get the added benefit of regular maintenance, so that you can be sure that the fire alarm is working correctly and any damaged parts are replaced.
