Hard wired smoke detector testing

Hard wired smoke detectors are our specialty at Smoke Alarmed. We test countless hard wired smoke detectors every day, and would be only too happy to inspect and test yours. 

Ideally, hard wired smoke detectors should be interconnected with the other detectors in your home, so that when one detector activates, all detectors activate, thus providing you with the earliest possible warning and best chance of escape should there be a fire. Smoke Alarmed can not only test the compliance and operation of your hard wired detectors, but also their successful interconnection with other detectors in your home.

By 1st January 2022 for rental properties and homes being sold, and 2027 for owner-occupied homes, all smoke detectors in homes in QLD will need to be interconnected with each other. Contact Smoke Alarmed today to arrange an assessment of your hard wired smoke detectors and if required, we can provide you with a free fixed price quote or upgrade your detectors to be interconnected with each other.

Smoke alarm testing in rental properties

Current smoke alarm legislation states that a rental property must have its smoke alarms tested in the 30 days prior to a new tenancy agreement or tenancy renewal to confirm they are safe, compliant and working correctly. 

If you're a rental property owner, Smoke Alarmed will efficiently liaise with real estate agents and tenants to arrange access to your property to carry out the required smoke alarm tests.

Whilst there, we carry out our advanced 7-point testing and service process on each and every alarm and provide you with a report of the test as well as a Smoke Alarm Compliance Certificate if they've all been deemed compliant. 

We treat your property and tenants with respect by using protective mats, drop cloths and shoe covers whilst carrying out the testing, and leave no trace of mess behind.

Discounted recurring annual testing and service plans are available which include unlimited visits to the property each year as well as free return visits should your tenant's experience beeping smoke alarms or random false-alarms.

Smoke alarm testing certificates

Sometimes you may need a smoke alarm compliance certificate for insurance purposes or at the time of a property sale or transfer. Smoke Alarmed can swiftly carry out this service and provide you with the required documentation within 24 hours of our scheduled visit.

Some of the checks we carry out include:

* The age of the smoke alarms (they should be less than 10 years old)

*Their positioning in the dwelling, proximity to bedrooms, corridors, egress paths etc.

* Whether they contain a photo-optical sensor or the older ionisation type

* Whether they are stand alone smoke alarms or interconnected with each other (when one alarm activates, all alarms activate)

* Their compliance with AS3786

* Their general condition including the security of the mounting bracket on the ceiling

* And of course, testing and operational checks to ensure they are safe, compliant and working properly

When required, and with your approval, we can carry out any repairs or upgrades whilst we are on site.

Pre-purchase smoke alarm testing and audits

How do you know the smoke alarm system in the home you're planning on buying is compliant with current standards? Sure, your purchase contract may have a box checked to indicate the smoke alarms are working correctly, but experience often tells us, nothing can be further from the truth.

For peace of mind for your family's safety, arrange for Smoke Alarmed to carry out a pre-purchase inspection of your smoke alarms and safety switches.

We will thoroughly inspect and test your smoke alarms and safety switches and advise on if they are satisfactory, and if not, provide a written report of non-compliance accompanied by a quote to have the system repaired or upgraded.

Smoke alarm battery testing

A beeping/chirping smoke alarm is everyone's enemy. If your smoke alarm is beeping once every 30-40 seconds or so, or you are confused as to why the new battery you've installed in your alarm is still causing it to beep, contact us today. We will visit swiftly at your location on the Sunshine Coast and carry out some tests on your smoke alarm battery (whether it be a replaceable 9 volt battery or sealed rechargeable lithium battery) to determine the best course of action to have the issue solved.

Close

Fire alarm audible testing

Residential fire alarms should meet a minimum requirement of 85dB of noise output at 3 metres.

Your smoke alarms may be proven to operate, but how do you know if they are loud enough to wake you in the event of a fire?

Smoke Alarmed electricians are equipped with the test equipment to carry out this smoke alarm audible testing of the siren, and take the additional steps of measuring the sound level where you sleep at the bed head.

We'll be able to provide you with recommendations to improve the safety of the smoke alarm system in your home, which may include relocating your existing alarms or adding more smoke alarms in key areas (and interconnecting them with others so that when one alarm sounds, all alarms sound).

Close

Smoke alarm inspections

If you're a little unsure how old or effective your existing smoke alarms are, or perhaps your alarms are giving you a bit of grief, contact Smoke Alarmed to carry out a smoke alarm inspection.

We don't charge a call out fee to visit and chat about your smoke alarms. We'll be able to give some honest, un-biased advice about the condition of your smoke alarms and what you can do to improve the fire and electrical safety in your Sunshine Coast home. Whether or not you choose us to carry out any work is irrelevant, but our hope at least is to provide you with some fire safety tips and advice which may one day become useful.

Close

Annual smoke alarm testing

Aside from rental properties which need their smoke alarms tested in the 30 days prior to a new tenancy or tenancy renewal, many private home-owners arrange for us to carry out a recurring annual smoke alarm test and service. This provides them with a level of peace of mind that the smoke alarm system in their home is safe, compliant and working properly  should it be called upon to operate in the time of need.

Call us today on 1800 SMOKE ALARM or send us a text message on 0447 377 453 to find out about our low annual pricing and schedule a convenient time to commence your annual smoke alarm testing.
