Inspection & Monitoring
Best Defense Fire Protection Ensures Your Safety with Fire Alarm Inspections
The functionality of a fire alarm system can be compromised by many things — dust and dirt from remodeling alone can affect proper operations of the systems you use to keep your property, valuables, and family safe. Best Defense’s certified technicians can properly test, inspect and maintain your fire alarm system so it continues to operate properly.
Regular inspection also reduces costs associated with unexpected emergency repairs and costly false alarms. As a single source provider for all your fire inspection needs, our technicians will provide you with your required fire alarm system test along with your sprinkler and extinguisher inspections in just one trip, saving you money.
Fire Sprinkler Inspections
State and local authorities have adopted codes requiring your sprinkler system and backflow preventer to be tested and inspected. Best Defense can affordably assist you in meeting all of the NFPA 25 Inspection and Testing (National Fire Protection Association) requirements for your fire protection system.
These fire sprinkler systems make up the majority of commercial and residential fire protection installations and are highly effective against fire. However, in order to prevent mechanical issues, these units require quarterly, yearly and 5 year monitoring for mechanical issues.
Best Defense is available to provide you with a full inspection or a quote to verify your system is in working order and fully compliant with NFPA requirements.

Best Defense Protects Your Property with Temperature Monitoring and Freeze Alert Detection
We can install temperature monitoring and freeze alert detection in your home, business, vacation home and cabin and, in most areas, can do so without the need for you to maintain a costly phone line!
Our temperature monitoring systems include installation of a 40 degree thermostat in a central location of your property. In the event of a furnace failure, our system will contract our monitoring station. Operators can then reach out to you or another preferred contact and indicate that indoor temperatures have dropped below 40° and pipes could be in danger of freezing and bursting.
Temperature Monitoring Systems are available for as little as $250 per year with no charge for many installations!
Best Defense Offers Wireless Fire Alarm Solutions for New and Existing Fire Alarms
International Building Code requirements require new fire alarm systems to be monitored by a remote supervising station. Traditionally this has been accomplished through the use of two telephone lines, which can be very expensive. Not only can two phone lines cost upwards of $100 per month, many businesses no longer have the traditional copper POTS telephone lines required for a fire alarm system.
Several modern solutions exist to save our customers the cost of traditional phone lines, while also providing you with a more robust method of redundant communication for your fire alarm. Best Defense offers AES-Intellinet radio monitoring to our customers throughout much of Wisconsin as well as cellular alarm communicators in areas where AES Coverage is not available.
