WHY BUY FROM US?

Frequently Asked Questions


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

They even come with complimentary anchor plugs and screws!

However if you purchase one of our Red 240V hardwired smoke alarms then it will need to be installed by a licensed electrician.

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.

Smoke Alarm Certification LaboratoriesYes, our alarms have been rigorously tested either by UL Underwriter Laboratories or TUV Rheinland Global Testing Laboratories and are certified by JAS-ANZ accreditation as being fully compliant to Australian Standard 3786:2014 (smoke alarms using scattered light, transmitted light or ionization).

No – our alarms use radio frequency (433.92 MHz) to connect and communicate with each other so a home WiFi connection is not needed.

Premier Range smoke alarms – up to a maximum of 20 alarms can be interconnected together within a range of 25 metres.

Red smoke alarms – up to a maximum of 20 alarms can be interconnected together within a range of 30 metres.

Connecting the alarms together is very easy! Videos demonstrating how to pair our Premier Range and Red smoke alarms are available to view at the setup & install page.

 

Our Premier Range smoke alarms can operate within a maximum network range of 25m.

Our Red smoke alarms can operate within a maximum network range of 30m.

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.

Any smoke alarm can become a ‘master’ alarm for the purposes of setting up a network – this is established by you during the pairing process, after you receive the alarms.

For example, if you purchased a bundle pack of 10 alarms, during the network pairing process you may choose to nominate one ‘master’ alarm and have all remaining  alarms interconnected onto that same network.

Or if you prefer, a bundle pack of 10 alarms could be split into two separate groups of 5 (each network group with a separate master alarm). It’s entirely up to you to decide during the pairing process in your home.

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

Smoke alarms should be replaced 10 years from the date of manufacture. If your smoke alarm complies to the Australian Standard then the date of manufacture should be printed on the back of the smoke alarm – take a look.

No. We do not recommend attempting to interconnect different brands of smoke detectors onto the same network. The initial set-up and pairing process is different for each smoke alarm brand and this could introduce communication issues whilst establishing the network. Some smoke alarm brands may share a common radio frequency, however the bandwidth will always vary which may cause functionality issues or simply not work in the first instance.

Our Premier Range smoke alarms are not compatible with Red smoke alarms, and vice versa.

As with any life saving appliance, adhere to the manufacturer’s recommendations and do not attempt to interconnect different brands of smoke alarms onto the same network.

No. Current QLD legislation states that if an existing hardwired smoke alarm needs replacement, it must be replaced with a hardwired photoelectric smoke alarm.

*Hardwired means hardwired to mains power.

No – QLD legislation requires new dwellings and dwellings being substantially renovated to have hardwired photoelectric smoke alarms.

Some real estate agents / property managers may ask you for an ‘upgrade certificate’ or ‘certificate of compliance’.  Note there is no legislative requirement for this certificate – talk to your property manager if you have further questions.
