What Is Environmental Monitoring For Commercial Properties?

What Is Environmental Monitoring For Commercial Properties?

Environmental monitoring is a function of commercial security systems that alerts the owner when there is a dangerous situation due to environmental factors as opposed to security breaches. While security alarm systems are often put in place to safeguard a space from break-ins, vandalism, and theft, they can also be used for the detection of fire, flood, gas leaks, and other dangerous conditions. Having real-time monitoring can save a commercial space from irreparable damage and can even alert the authorities to the issue the moment it happens. Environmental monitoring protects companies from expensive damages and, more importantly, keeps staff, customers, and others in the building safe from all different kinds of hazardous situations.

What Does Environmental Monitoring Protect Against?

The most common form of environmental detection that commercial spaces have are smoke detectors. Often these detectors come with an automatic sprinkler system. But many smoke alarms merely detect smoke and issue an audible alarm, which isn’t always useful when no one is present in the building, such as when a fire starts at night or on a day your business is closed. A commercial alarm system can give you access to your commercial building space via your smartphone to alert you of any fires so that you can stay informed at any time of the day or night. Advanced alarm systems can also notify the fire department and request immediate assistance.

Carbon Monoxide
This colourless, tasteless, odorless, and highly flammable gas can be extremely hazardous to everyone in your commercial space. If a carbon monoxide leak occurs and there is no device installed to detect it, the leak can go unnoticed and lead to carbon monoxide poisoning or fire. A commercial alarm system with a carbon monoxide detection feature will alert you if there is a leak in your business so that you can quickly and safely evacuate the building and have the issue safely and promptly resolved.

Temperature Changes
In cold climates such as Calgary, a winter power outage, an open door or window, or even a cold snap can mean a quick drop in indoor temperature. A severe drop in temperature can lead to frozen pipes, destroyed equipment, disrupted business, and other losses. A commercial alarm system that monitors the temperature will alert you if the temperature drops so that you can bring the heat back up and avoid any losses.

Water Leaks
Whether it’s a small leak or a burst pipe, water can do major damage to a building and cost a company lots of money to repair. This price of damages only increases when the water leak is not identified and fixed early. While water leaks are most common in older buildings, they can occur in new buildings as well. Having a commercial alarm system that monitors for leaks allows you to have them fixed promptly.
