Just some of our smoke alarm services
Smoke alarm installation
Whether it be the installation of one smoke alarm in your Sunshine Coast QLD home or the installation of a whole house interconnected photoelectric smoke alarm system, Smoke Alarmed can help! We have the specialist knowledge and experience to know where to best position the smoke alarms in your property, taking into consideration minimum distances from walls, room corners, light fittings, ceiling fans and air conditioners and vents
Smoke alarm testing
When it comes to smoke alarm testing, we're thorough and leave no stone unturned. We carry out a thorough 7-point testing and service process on each alarm.
This includes an audible (sound pressure) test using a sound meter, a simulated smoke test (to ensure the alarm activates under real-life conditions), an internal sensor clean, and replacing the battery of course (whether that be a back up battery or the alarm's main power source), just to name a few. We also apply insect repellent on the smoke alarm and surrounding surfaces to limit the chance of insect ingress which can cause those annoying false alarms. Just pressing a test button on a smoke alarm is simply not enough to ensure your smoke alarm works when you need it to work the most.
Smoke Alarmed are relentless in their smoke alarm testing procedures and go further than any other smoke alarm testing company on the Sunshine Coast. The safety of your, your family or tenants is far too important to risk on anything less!
Smoke alarm repair
If you find your smoke alarms are false alarming and/or randomly chirping (and they're less than 10 years old and of acceptable condition), repairing the smoke alarm is often a more cost-effective option than replacing them. Reach out to us today to schedule a site visit and free consultation. After inspecting your smoke alarm(s) and running some tests, we'll be able to give you some prices and options for its repair.
QLD 2022 and 2027 Smoke Alarm Legislation Upgrades
By the 1st January 2022, all properties in QLD being leased or sold will require to have photoelectric smoke alarms (mains powered or powered by a non-removable 10-year-life lithium battery) inside EVERY bedroom, in the spaces connecting the bedrooms and the escape areas (i.e. the corridors) and on each level. They will also require interconnection with each other (i.e. when one smoke alarm sounds, all alarms sound). For all owner-occupied homes in QLD, the same standard will be required by 1st January 2027. See QFES for more information.
Contact Smoke Alarmed today for a free quote to upgrade your Sunshine Coast property to the incoming 2022 and 2027 smoke alarm standards
Chirping smoke alarm emergencies
We're specialists in chirping/beeping smoke alarms, specifically what causes them and how to fix them.
If you have a noisy/chirping/beeping smoke alarm giving you grief in your Sunshine Coast home, call us before 11am Mon-Fri, and we'll fix it the same day you call or our repair is FREE!
Upgrade to photoelectric smoke alarms
Photoelectric (optical) smoke alarms are far superior to their older 'ionisation' cousins. Photoelectric smoke alarms alert you to a fire quicker and they are far less likely to false alarm from burning toast, cooking smoke and humidity.
Upgrading to photoelectric smoke alarms is a worthwhile investment to improve the fire safety in your property
Expired smoke alarm replacement
All smoke alarms expire when they reach 10 years of age, after which they need to be replaced. The manufacturing date and/or the expiry date are often labelled on the rear of the alarm. How old are yours?
If you're not sure, arrange for one of our smoke alarm electricians to visit and assess your smoke alarms. We'll provide a free, no obligation quote if they need to be replaced with new
Smoke alarm testing and compliance for rental properties
In rental properties in QLD, smoke alarms and safety switches require testing in the 30 days prior to a new tenancy or tenancy renewal. Contact us today to take the hassle out of your rental property smoke alarm and electrical compliance obligations

Got some questions?
Do you charge a call out fee?

You will have no nasty surprises.
How much does it cost to ... ?

After that, we will provide you with a fixed priced quote. If you wish to proceed, we can usually carry out the work on the spot so you don't have to wait for us to come back another time.

Are you electricians or just a smoke alarm company?
We're electricians who are licensed to carry out all electrical work. However, we are also smoke alarm specialists. We are not typical 'jack of all trades' electricians who might only install the odd smoke alarm here and there. Nor are we a traditional smoke alarm company who travels from property to property to only test smoke alarms. Being licensed electricians, we're qualified to attend to all mains powered (hard wired) smoke alarm repairs and installations. In addition, we have the knowledge and experience to handle the complexities of any smoke alarm problem.
What is your service area?
We're based centrally in Buderim, so are in a prime position to service all Sunshine Coast QLD suburbs between Beerwah in the South, to Noosa Heads in the North, and West out to Montville and Maleny. If you're unsure if we service your area, reach out to us today.
When do the new QLD smoke alarm laws come in?
By 1st January 2022, all QLD properties being sold or rented will be required to have mains powered or 10-year-lithium battery powered photoelectric smoke alarms installed in every bedroom and outside the bedrooms in the corridors, and all alarms will need to be interconnected with each other (meaning, when one alarm sounds, all alarms sound). All owner-occupied homes in QLD will be required to meet this standard by no later than 1st January 2027. If you need more information on the incoming QLD Smoke Alarm Legislation, please give us a call today!
