They include other things, like smoke and carbon monoxide (CO). Your typical entry-level home security system focuses mainly on unauthorized home entry. You get window and door sensors and perhaps a video camera or two. Yet why stop there? Homeowners are equally at risk for structure fires and carbon monoxide exposure.
