Fire Alarms & Inspections

Fire Alarm Systems

Fire codes have changed significantly over the years and so has the advancement in fire alarm systems. With technicians and installers well versed in the current fire codes, SMS is your source for the latest in fire alarm protection technology.

We install conventional or advanced addressable systems, which identify the specific location of the detector so you know instantly where the fire-source is endangering your home or business. As a Silent Knight and Fire-Lite dealer, we provide everything from manual pull stations to sophisticated smoke and heat detectors. And to maximize convenience and effectiveness, SMS can also provide an interface from your system to HVAC, elevator recall, fire sprinkler monitoring and supervision. From design and installation, to service and monitoring, SMS handles the project from start to finish.
