As any home or business owner knows, fire safety is of the utmost importance. In the event of a fire, minutes can mean the difference between life and death. That's why it's so important to have a reliable smoke alarm installed in your home or office. Smoke alarms are required by law in NSW, and for good reason. They provide an early warning signal in the event of a fire, helping to minimise property damage and save lives. Whether you're looking for hard-wired or battery-operated smoke alarms, there's sure to be an option that's right for you.

We highly recommend the installation of interconnected photoelectric smoke alarms in all bedrooms and living spaces. Photoelectric type alarms are particularly good at early detection of smouldering fires, and they are less prone to false alarms due to cooking. These alarms work by emitting a beam of light across the room, and the alarm is triggered when smoke particles break the beam. The advantage of photoelectric smoke detectors is that they are highly sensitive and can detect even tiny amounts of smoke. By installing interconnected alarms, you can ensure that everyone in your home will be alerted in the event of a fire. In addition to preventing loss of life, early detection of fires can also help to minimise damage to property. We urge all homeowners to take this simple but important step to protect their families and homes.
Ionisation alarms are a common type of smoke detector, and they work best when there is an active fire with flames. This is because the device relies on ionisation to detect smoke, and flames are necessary to produce ions. Ionisation alarms contain a small amount of radioactive material, which is used to create ions when an electrical current is passed through the plates. If smoke enters the chamber, it disrupts the ionic flow and triggers the alarm.
Fire & Rescue NSW highly recommends installation of interconnected photoelectric smoke alarms over ionisation alarms. They are also better at detecting smouldering fires, which account for the majority of residential fires. With the dangers of house fires always present, it's important to have the best possible protection in place.
While many people believe that they can save money by installing their own smoke alarms, the truth is that this is a job best left to the professionals. Licensed electricians have the training and experience necessary to ensure that the smoke alarms are properly installed and connected to the home’s electrical system. This is important because smoke alarms that are not properly connected can fail to sound in the event of a fire. In addition, electricians can also help to ensure that the smoke alarms are located in the best possible position for them to be effective. By contrast, people who attempt to install their own smoke alarms often make mistakes that could put their homes and families at risk. Therefore, it is always best to let a licensed professional handle this job.
Our team can also help you create an effective fire safety plan for your home. In addition to installing smoke alarms, our electricians can identify potential fire hazards in your home and recommend steps to reduce the risk of fire. By taking these steps, you can help ensure that your family is safe in the event of a fire.
