Smoke alarm legal requirements

The legislation for smoke alarms changed officially on the 1st of January 2017. There are still currently some homes that do not comply with the legislation changes. Below is a snippet from the Queensland Fire and Emergency Services website related to the legislative requirements.

When it is time for your property's alarms to be upgraded, those alarms must:

  • be photoelectric and comply with Australian Standard 3786-2014
  • not also contain an ionisation sensor; and
  • be less than 10 years old; and
  • operate when tested; and
  • be interconnected with every other ‘required’ smoke alarm in the dwelling so all activate together.
  • Any existing smoke alarm being replaced from 1 January 2017 must be a photoelectric-type alarm which complies with Australian Standard 3786-2014.

If a smoke alarm which is hardwired to the domestic power supply needs replacement, it must be replaced with a hardwired photoelectric smoke alarms.

In existing domestic dwellings, it is possible to have a combination of smoke alarms (240v and battery operated) and interconnectivity can be both wired and wireless.

It is strongly advised that any work that needs to be carried out on your smoke alarms should only be done by a fully qualified, licenced and insured electrician.

Smoke alarms - interconnected for safety

Smoke alarms are to be either hardwired to the mains power supply of your home or fitted with a 10-year battery. Mains-powered smoke alarms ensure that for as long as your home has power, so will your smoke alarm. These smoke alarms are also fitted with a backup battery so that they can continue to work even when there is no power being supplied to the property.

Each smoke alarm must be interconnected with the others within the home so that all will activate at the same time in the event of a fire.

Correct placement of smoke alarms

When it comes to the placement of smoke alarms the legislation requires that you are to have at least one:
