Home Smoke Alarms: Hard Wired and Battery-Powered Systems: Summary Bulletin

Published

As a response to legislation across many Australian states that requires smoke alarms to be installed in homes and places where people sleep, HMinfo has produced a new summary bulletin on Home Smoke Alarms; Hard Wired and Battery-Powered Systems.  

This bulletin includes information on both Hard Wired and Battery-Powered Smoke Alarms and the main methods of smoke detection used. Complete with diagrams suggesting possible alarm placement, the bulletin may assist consumers and home modification and maintenance providers to appropriately select and place the most suitable smoke detection system in their homes.

The Smoke Alarms Summary Bulletin may be found here.
