In May, the Steamboat Springs City Council adopted a new Ordinance creating a “Fee Schedule for Excessive and/or Unnecessary Emergency Alarms”. The ordinance divides false alarms into three categories. Category I false alarms are accidental and will not incur fines. Category II false alarms cover system malfunctions, user error, and undetermined causes – these will incur fines beginning with the second offense. The last Category covers malicious or mischievous actions, these are finable and are also illegal.

Carbon monoxide (CO) is the number one cause of poisoning deaths in the United States. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, “For the period 1999-2004, an average of 439 persons died annually from unintentional, non–fire-related CO poisoning (range: 400 in 1999 to 473 in 2003).”(http://jama.ama-assn.org/cgi/content/full/299/9/1011) Carbon monoxide is a colorless and odorless gas; the initial effects are similar to altitude sickness (headache, lightheadedness, dizziness, shortness of breath) and are often ignored until it is too late.

We are all thinking of ways to save money, and it’s also the time of year when part-time residents are putting their homes into “hibernation.” As a part of this process thermostats are turned down, electrical devices are unplugged, and some take the added steps of suspending their cable or satellite TV and telephone services.

Vail Electronics recently completed a retrofit installation of 8 security cameras in a residential property in Beaver Creek, Colorado. The project was completed using a combination of wired and wireless cameras connected to a two terabyte video server. The wireless cameras transmit the video stream over a secure wireless network and derive power from nearby electrical outlets. Due to the high-end nature of the finishes in the home, all of this was done with very little wall damage and virtually no visible wiring.
