Smoke Alarm Installation
Do you know its the law to have fire alarms correctly installed in your home or commercial property?
Smoke alarms manufactured more than 10 years ago must be replaced with photoelectric smoke alarms which comply with Australian Standards (AS) 3786-2014.
If a smoke alarm does not sound when tested, it must be replaced immediately.
Existing hardwired smoke alarms that need replacement must be replaced with a hardwired photoelectric smoke alarm to comply with current fire detector safety regulations.

What’s required by law?
Alarm systems should have the following features:
- Be photoelectric and comply with the Australian Trade Standard 3786-2014
- The device also contains an ionisation sensor and is less than 10 years old
- Smoke alarms need to be in good working order and interconnected with every other alarm in the home or property.
Any smoke alarm you install from the new year onwards should be a photoelectric-type which complies with AS 3786.
If a smoke alarm which is hardwired to the domestic power supply needs replacement, it must be replaced with a hardwired photoelectric smoke alarm.
It’s possible to have a combination of smoke alarms (240V and battery operated) in homes. Wired and/or wireless interconnectivity options are also viable.
