Smoke Alarm & Detector Installation
In a fire, every second counts. Smoke quickly overwhelms, long before you’ve seen any flames, and smoke detector installation saves lives.

Smoke Alarm Installation Cost
If you have wondered about the cost of installing a fire alarm, the devices are reasonably inexpensive. Without professional help, however, it becomes difficult to know where to put each device for optimal coverage of your property.
The regulations state that homes or businesses must install smoke alarms:
- On each floor
- Outside each bedroom
- So that you can hear the sound from anywhere in the building
- Considering hard-of-hearing family members with flashing lights
- In a sheltered area to reduce interference from windows or air conditioners
A three-bedroomed home with a basement floor would likely need around four detectors to comply.
The Type of Smoke Alarm Influences Cost
Smoke alarms in Australia are commonly one of two options:
These types work best when there are flames. It won’t detect a small ember that’s smouldering.
Ionization devices contain bits of radioactive material, set between two plates in a small internal chamber. When the electrical charge runs through the plates, it produces ions. If smoke enters the section, it disrupts this ionic flow, and the alarm sounds to warn of a fire.
If you have some cash to spare, photoelectric alarms are worth the extra expense. These alarms are far more sensitive than the previous type.
The alarms work by emitting an LED beam across a room, and the alarm goes off as smoke breaks the shaft.
The advantage of the photoelectric smoke detector is that it can detect a tiny wisp of smoke, and the government recommends that all Australians consider this option.
Testing Your Smoke Detectors Adds a Little to the Cost
It’s essential to check these devices at least once a month for malfunctioning. Considering what’s at risk, you don’t want to be caught out by a loose connection or a flat battery. Peruse the owner’s manual for advice on how to perform these checks.
Property owners should change the batteries every six months to be on the safe side. Call in our Calibre Connect professionals for a safety check at the same time to improve your level of protection. We’ll perform a thorough maintenance visit for you every quarter, six months, or year.
