Alerting Systems and Signaling Devices

Alerting Systems & Signaling Devices

Receive alerts to important events in your home, such as smoke and carbon monoxide gas alarms, doorbells, cellphone and landline incoming phone calls, baby cries, door and windows opening, and many others.

Use flashing lights, loud alarms, vibrations, or a combination of these alerts to notify you. 

These devices are especially helpful at night to wake you up in an emergency!

When shopping for Silent Call or HomeAware System devices, follow these steps: 

Step 1: Choose one Receiver for each room you wish to be notified in. (Add a bed shaker if you need to wake up at night for these events.)

Step 2: Choose a Transmitter for each type of event you wish to be notified of.

It is recommended by the Fire Department to have at least one smoke detector on EACH floor of your home, including the basement.  You may want to consider a smoke detector in each bedroom as well. A carbon monoxide (CO) detector should be placed outside the bedroom door so that you are alerted when and where you are sleeping. 

Please check your local fire code if you are unsure of how many and the placement of these life-saving devices. 

If you are low-income, you may qualify for funding support. Home Safety Equipment Funding, Deaf & Hear Alberta in partnership with The Campbell McLaurin Foundation works together to provide funding for low-income individuals, couples and families to be safe in their own homes. This funding is for people in Southern Alberta (from Red Deer, border to border east and west and southward to the US border)
