Very professional, price was reasonable and all contact was immediate and pleasant. I had questions regarding the brand of the units they were installing, they contacted me immediately and sent through the information I needed. The installer turned up exactly on time, answered all my questions and had the units installed (without a mess) in under 1/2 hour. Very happy to recommend this company.

Understanding QLD Smoke Detector Regulations

Our team of experts is well-versed in every detail of the new QLD smoke detector legislation. Here's what you need to know:

Property Sellers

As of 1 Jan 2022, all properties sold in QLD must have Australian Standards Compliant AS3786-2014 interconnected photoelectric smoke alarms installed before the property exchanges hands. Failure to comply with this requirement will give the buyer the right to claim 0.15% of the property sale price during settlement.


Starting from 1 Jan 2027, all owner-occupied properties must have Australian Standards Compliant AS3786-2014 interconnected photoelectric smoke alarms. This ensures that when one alarm is triggered, all alarms in the property activate, providing an early warning sign of potential fire danger. It's important to note that if your current smoke alarms in the Sunshine Coast are over 10 years old and/or not operational, you may risk having a fire-related insurance claim denied by your insurer. Don't take that risk!

Landlords and Real Estate Agents

As of 1 Jan 2022, landlords are responsible for ensuring that their property complies with the QLD smoke alarm legislation at the commencement of a new lease or on lease renewal.  Australian Standards Compliant AS3786-2014 interconnected photoelectric smoke alarms must be installed and tested within 30 days before signing of a new lease or lease renewal. Our annual service packages aim to take the hassle out of compliance, maintenance and testing.

Compliance Inspection Certification

We conduct detailed compliance inspections in accordance with the QLD Smoke Alarm Legislation requirements and issue a detailed compliance report. If you are selling or buying a property, renting out a property, or for validation requirements, we can support you in achieving compliance by ensuring that your smoke alarms are fully operational, are all interconnected, and installed in the right location as prescribed by the legislation and complies with the Australian Standards (AS)3786-2014.

Frequently asked questions (faq) - smoke detectors upgrades & installation

Why is it essential to upgrade my smoke detectors?

Upgrading your smoke alarms ensures you have the latest technology with improved sensitivity and response times. Newer smoke alarms also comply with current safety standards, providing enhanced protection for your home and property.

What are photoelectric smoke alarms, and why are they required in Queensland?

Photoelectric smoke alarms use light sensors to detect smoke particles, making them more effective at detecting slow-burning, smoldering fires. Queensland requires all homes to have photoelectric smoke alarms for improved fire safety.

Can I install smoke alarms myself, or should I hire professionals?

While some jurisdictions allow DIY installations, it's best to hire professionals for smoke alarm installations. Expert technicians ensure proper placement, interconnection, and compliance with safety regulations, providing reliable protection.

How often should I replace my smoke alarms?

Smoke alarms typically have a lifespan of about 10 years. However, certain models may require replacement sooner. Regularly check the manufacturer's recommendations and replace outdated units promptly.

What is interconnection, and why is it important?

Interconnection means that all smoke alarms in your home are linked together. When one alarm detects smoke, all interconnected alarms activate simultaneously, providing early warning throughout the house.

Can I install wireless smoke alarms in an older home?

Yes, wireless smoke alarms are a viable option for older homes without pre-existing wiring. They offer a flexible and convenient installation solution without compromising safety.

Will upgrading my smoke alarms reduce false alarms?

Yes, newer smoke alarm models often have features that reduce false alarms caused by dust or cooking fumes. Advanced technology ensures more accurate and reliable detection.

Do I need to test my smoke alarms regularly, even after installation?

Yes, regular testing is crucial to ensure your smoke alarms are functioning correctly. Test your smoke alarms monthly and replace batteries annually or as recommended by the manufacturer.
