What type of smoke alarm should I choose?

We only install top quality photoelectric Australian Standard smoke alarms. We will ensure that the alarms are correctly installed to comply with NSW legislation. We will issue a certificate of compliance for your property.

Photoelectric smoke alarms are what our electricians recommend. Ionisation smoke alarms are not recommended by us as they are not as effective at detecting fires that are slow smouldering. Slow smouldering fires that are undetected are generally the leading cause of deaths due to fires in homes. Photoelectric sensors detect the types of fires that smoulder for hours before bursting into flames.

NSW smoke alarm legislation for homeowners.

NSW legislation stipulates that smoke alarms must be installed on every level of your home.

This includes owner occupied homes, rental properties, relocatable homes, caravans and camper-vans or any other residential building where people sleep.

Where must smoke alarms be installed?

These alarms must be placed in hallways near bedrooms; however, if bedrooms are in different parts of the house, you must have alarms installed in each of these locations. If there are no hallways associated with the bedrooms, alarms must be installed between the part of the home containing the bedroom and the rest of the house. You must have smoke alarms on all levels of your home even if there are no bedrooms located on that level.

NSW smoke alarm legislation for tenanted properties.

NSW legislation mandates that your landlord is responsible for ensuring your residence meets the minimal requirements of having at least one working smoke alarm installed on every level of your home.

Tenants must notify their landlord or agent if they discover that a smoke alarm is not working (this includes when the battery needs to be changed).

Tenants must notify their landlord when they change a battery in a smoke alarm or engage a licensed electrician to repair or replace an alarm. The different circumstances where a tenant can change a battery or engage a licensed electrician are provided by the Department of Fair Training NSW

From 23 March 2020, NSW landlords and agents need to ensure that smoke alarms installed in rented properties are in working order.

Where a smoke alarm is not in working order, landlords and agents must ensure the alarm is repaired (this includes replacing a battery) within 2 business days.

Landlords and agents must check smoke alarms every year to ensure they are working.

Landlords and agents must ensure:

  • smoke alarms are replaced within 10 years of manufacture, or earlier if specified by the manufacturer
  • batteries are installed or replaced every year (or for lithium batteries, in the period specified by the manufacturer).

Further information to help landlords and agents understand their responsibilities for different types of smoke alarms, and the situations where a tenant can change a battery in a smoke alarm or arrange for a repair can be found at the Department of Fair Training NSW’s website
