Smoke Alarm Installation
Smoke alarms are a critically important safety feature for any home or business. In NSW, smoke alarm installation is mandatory in all homes, apartments, rental properties, moveable homes and any other residential building.
As recommended by Fire and Rescue NSW, we supply and install photoelectric smoke alarms for bedrooms, living spaces and connecting spaces like hallways and staircases. Photoelectric smoke alarms typically detect smoke faster than older ionisation alarms and are less prone to malfunctions and false alarms.
We can also install an interconnected system of smoke alarms throughout your house or business to ensure that detection in one area of your home sounds every alarm. These are ideal for large homes or properties.
Smoke Alarm Testing
Ensuring that your fire warning systems are working properly can save you valuable time in the event of an emergency. Regular testing of alarms is an important factor in maximising you and your property’s protection against fire.
We recommend having your smoke alarms tested at least once every 12 months.
Our smoke alarm testing and maintenance services include:
- Cleaning and testing all smoke alarms in the property
- Battery replacement
- Replacing faulty or expired alarms
- Decibel testing
- Completion of work card
- Compliance checks
Our team can tailor a testing and maintenance schedule that is convenient for you, as well as arrange an annual maintenance service.

Where should I put smoke alarms in my Castle Hill home?
Under the Building Legislation Amendment (Smoke Alarms) Act 2005, residential dwellings must have smoke alarms placed on each level of the home, while it’s recommended to have smoke detectors installed between kitchen and any sleeping areas. For a greater level of fire safety in your Castle Hill residence, NSW Fire and Rescue recommend installing interconnected smoke detectors in bedrooms, living spaces, hallways, and stairs.
How often should I replace the smoke detectors in my Castle Hill home?
At O’Brien Electrical Castle Hill, we recommend replacing your smoke alarms at least every 10 years. Smoke alarms lose sensitivity over time, while newer smoke alarms are much better at detecting and alerting potential fire dangers. It is also recommended to replace your smoke alarm battery at least once every 12 months.
