WHY BUY FROM US?

Frequently Asked Questions

Both brands comply to Australian Standard 3786:2014 and both brands are very good!

Warranty – Red smoke alarms have a 10 year warranty. Premier Range alarms have a 2 year warranty.

Operating Distance – Red smoke alarms have a network reach (30m). Premier Range has a network reach (25m).

Red smoke alarms also manufacture a 240v mains powered version of their alarm – this is useful for some people who require a combination of battery operated and 240v mains powered alarms to communicate with one another on the same network.

Our Red smoke alarms are not compatible with Premier Range smoke alarms, and vice versa (i.e. different brands cannot be interconnected together).

The Real Estate Institute of Queensland (REIQ) is Queensland’s peak professional body in real estate. Please refer to their website below.

Our blog post also contains more information about smoke alarm compliance when selling your property in QLD.

Selling in QLD and the smoke alarm compliance certificate

No, we do not have a traditional ‘bricks and mortar’ shopfront. Our listed address is an administration office only and we do not keep stock at this location. Maintaining a 100% online presence allows us to keep overheads as low as possible – this is reflected in our smoke alarm pricing. Free shipping is also provided on all orders over $200.

Yes! All alarms in a bundle pack can be split up. For example, you may want to split a 10 pack bundle into two separate network groups by having 6 alarms in one property and 4 alarms in another property (with each network group functioning independently of the other). It’s entirely up to you to decide during the pairing process in your home, after you receive the alarms.

Refer to our pairing video for more information on how to wirelessly interconnect the alarms.

The number of smoke alarms required is relative to the size, floor layout and what state the dwelling is located in. QLD law states that a smoke alarm must be installed;

  • on each storey
  • in each bedroom
  • in hallways that connect bedrooms and the rest of the dwelling
  • if there is no hallway, between the bedroom and other parts of the storey
  • if there are no bedrooms on a storey, at least one smoke alarm must be installed in the most likely path of travel to exit the dwelling.

The example floorplan below was developed by the Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES) and depicts required smoke alarm locations within a dwelling – use this as a guide for determining your own requirements.

Wireless Interconnected Photoelectric Smoke Alarm Placement Recommendations

The ‘recommended placement’ section of our website also contains more information.

 


No, as our alarms are battery operated (not hardwired to 240v mains power) they can be easily installed by yourself and do not require an electrician.

Please note however if you purchase one of our Red 240V hardwired smoke alarms then yes it will need to be installed by a Licensed Electrician.

No. The interconnection is wireless and uses a radio frequency so that the alarms must be uniquely paired to one another. All alarms in one property are paired with a ‘master’ alarm, which is distinct from a ‘master’ alarm on any adjoining property.

Legislation states that if an existing 240v hardwired alarm is to be replaced, then it must be replaced with a 240v hardwired photoelectric smoke alarm.

The Building Code of Australia also states that any new dwellings being constructed or being substantially renovated must have 240v hardwired photoelectric smoke alarms installed.

Some insurance providers can decline to quote your property if you don’t fulfil their underwriting criteria when it comes to fire protection. It is always recommended to install interconnected photoelectric smoke alarms and check with your insurance provider or insurance broker to make sure you meet the necessary requirements.
