Smoke Alarm Installations In Victoria

When it comes to smoke alarm installations, there are strict requirements your property must meet.

In Victoria, all residential premises constructed after 1997 must at least have a 240-volt mains-powered smoke alarm system, with backup batteries fitted. Properties built before this date must have at least a 9-volt battery-powered alarm.

Smoke alarms must be installed

  • On each storey of your property
  • Outside the bedrooms and between living areas
  • Inside all bedrooms

Photoelectric smoke alarms

Unlike older models of detectors, photoelectric smoke alarms “see” smoke by detecting visible parts of combustion. This means they are more effective at detecting early signs of fire risk like smouldering fires. Because they operate by visually detecting fire danger, they are also less likely to malfunction or be set-off by other things like steam.

Benefits of Photoelectric Smoke Alarms

  • Better sensitivity to smoke
  • Less likely to malfunction
  • Recommended by Melbourne’s Metropolitan Fire Brigade
  • Provide earlier warning

Interconnected smoke alarms

Interconnected fire alarms are a system of detectors connected together, so no matter where fire risk is first found, all the alarms on the property will be set off. Interconnected alarms are highly recommended for larger homes or multiple-storey properties.

Smoke Alarm Testing

At O’Brien Electrical & Air Conditioning Bendigo, we offer annual smoke alarm safety tests to ensure that your property is compliant and that your alarms are functioning properly.

All our services are carried out by a fully qualified and licensed electrician, including safety checks, battery replacements, positioning, testing and compliance reporting.
