Is your home compliant with the latest regulations?
Alarm systems should have the following features:
- Be photoelectric and comply with the Australian Trade Standard 3786-2014
- The ionisation sensor in this device is not new and was manufactured less than 10 years ago.
- It’s important to always have these alarms in your home or property in good working order. You also need to make sure they’re interconnected with every other alarm in the house.
If you install a smoke alarm any time from the new year onwards, it should be a photoelectric type that follows Australian Standard AS 3786.
Smoke alarms which are hardwired to the power supply should be replaced with photoelectric models if they need replacement.
There are some different types of smoke alarms. Wired ones are hardwired into the main power supply while battery operated ones can usually use batteries. There are also wireless models where you’ll need to install an alarm on each level of your house separately or wirelessly connect them together.
