Smoke Detector Installation for Your Safety

When it comes to saving your loved ones and your home from a fire, a smoke alarm (or smoke detector) is your primary defender. Not only can it help save your property from enormous damage, but it can also save lives.

By law, all Australian homes are required to have at least one working smoke alarm. In all homes built or renovated since 1997, that smoke alarm must be hardwired to your power. A faulty alarm is likely to put your home and your loved ones at significant risk in the event of a house fire.

Here at Electrician Near Me, we take fire safety very seriously. Our technicians take the time and care to guarantee your home complies with strict State and Federal regulations. We will never compromise on your safety.

Make Electrician Near Me your first point of contact for smoke detector installation and fault detection. We will check your wiring and provide high quality smoke alarms that meet all Australian standards.

Smoke Detector Replacement

Smoke alarm laws around the country require homes to have a minimum of one or more working smoke alarms installed. It’s also required that smoke alarms must be up to date and in working order, with a wired connection to the mains power.

It’s important to consider not only the placement of the smoke alarm itself but also the power source, whether it’s part of an interconnected system, and how old the system is. If they are looked after, smoke alarms can last for 10 years, after which they should be replaced.

However, as laws have been updated to improve the safety of homes, you may find that your old, battery-powered smoke alarm just doesn’t cut it anymore. Whether it’s smoke alarms that are faulty, or you want your old system replaced with a newer one for your peace of mind, don’t hesitate to call Electrician Near Me.

Smoke Alarm Testing Services

Our professional electricians are qualified to test all types of smoke detectors to ensure they comply with standards, and all have up-to-date knowledge of local laws.

They will check to ensure your smoke alarm system:

  • Meets the minimum requirement number of smoke alarms
  • Has sufficient coverage of the house
  • Uses detectors that are up to date
  • Functions at the required level
  • Complies with electrical wiring requirements (if necessary)

Once the electrician has thoroughly inspected your smoke alarm system, they will provide you with a certificate of compliance.

Types of Smoke Alarms

Before you have a smoke alarm installed, it’s important to know just what is available. You should also seek advice on local regulations and maintenance requirements.

Here are the two main types of smoke detectors for home use:

  • Photoelectric alarms – Photoelectric smoke alarms are often the favoured choice for installation in Australian homes. They feature a photocell and a light beam that shines away from the cell, which enables the alarm to detect smoke before it has the opportunity to erupt into flames.
  • Ionisation smoke detectors – These smoke detectors feature a tiny amount of radioactive material and are capable of “smelling” any particle emissions from a fire. Ionisation smoke alarms are highly adept at detecting flames that form fast, and don’t produce a lot in the way of visible smoke. It is recommended that ionisation alarms not be installed near your kitchen or bathroom as they can often sound when you’re cooking or when a lot of steam forms.

Australian Smoke Detector Regulations

While most Australian states and territories have similar guidelines, the legislation does differ around the country.

All Electrician Near Me technicians know the correct regulations for the state or territory they’re working in. For your information, here’s a brief outline of regulations in different states and territories:

  • ACT:  Homes built or renovated since 1997 must have at least one hardwired alarm. Photoelectric preferred.
  • NSW: At least one alarm is required per house or floor level. Mains powered and interconnected recommended.
  • NT: At least one hardwired photoelectric alarm, or an alarm with a 10-year battery.
  • QLD: Mains powered or interconnected photoelectric alarms. A 10-year battery is also acceptable (as of 2017). Current alarms that are less than 10 years old must be replaced when they expire.
  • SA: At least one alarm which is mains powered or has a 10-year battery. New builds and extensions require interconnected alarms.
  • TAS: At least one per home. Hardwired or 10-year battery operated.
  • VIC: At least one alarm per home. Photoelectric recommended.
  • WA: Minimum of one alarm that is hardwired. Battery powered alarms are only allowed when mains power is not possible.
