Having hard wired smoke alarms installed into your Perth property is mandatory in Western Australia. In a new home, you must have mains powered smoke alarms, so they are still going to work in the event of a power failure. This means they need to be installed by professional electricians who know the smoke alarm laws. Battery powered smoke alarms can be installed if there is no mains power in a dwelling or it is impossible to run cabling. Depending on the size of your home, you will want to have quite a few compliant smoke alarms installed and operating. This way, everyone in the home will be alerted in the event of a fire.
Currently, smoke alarm installation is required in all bedrooms, hallways, the garage, and the basement. The smoke detectors are connected to one another, so when a smoke alarm detects smoke, all of them will go off. This can improve the chance of everyone getting out of the house in the event of a fire. W.A Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES) recommends interconnected photoelectric smoke alarms as the preferred type.
You do not want to take chances with your family or your property, so do not put off getting your smoke detectors installed in your Perth home. In addition, you may want to have the smoke detectors tested regularly to make sure they are all working properly – contact Hilton Electrical to have an electrician come to perform a safety check in your home.
