Queensland Smoke Alarms Legislation

Smoke alarms are required by law to be fitted in all residential properties in all states of Australia with some variations in required type and location. In Queensland, new legislation will be coming into effect on 1 January 2022. This legislation directs that interconnected photoelectric smoke alarms in QLD must be in all bedrooms, in hallways that connect bedrooms with the rest of the dwelling and on every level. This applies to all domestic dwellings leased and sold both in Brisbane and the wider state of Queensland.

Interconnected Wireless Photoelectric Smoke Alarms

So what is an interconnected photoelectric smoke alarm? Photoelectric smoke alarms offer state of the art technology that is proven to save lives. They are small circular units placed at key locations throughout the home that are designed to provide early detection of fire. The new interconnected smoke alarms that we offer comply with the new regulations and must be installed in each bedroom, hallways and between bedrooms.

How Photoelectric Smoke Detectors Work

Within the alarm unit, there is a sensing chamber that contains a light-sensitive sensor and light-emitting diode. When suspended smoke particles are present in the chamber, they scatter the light beam from the diode. This sensor picks up this interruption to the light and scattered beams and triggers the alarm to sound.

Why Use Photoelectric Smoke Detectors?

Unlike ionization smoke alarms which rely on visible flames to trigger the alarm, photoelectric alarms are sensitive to particles created by smoke. This means a more rapid response and enhanced opportunity for escape should a genuine emergency be occurring.
