Did you know that new smoke detector laws were recently introduced to Queensland?
From 1 January 2017 smoke alarms installed in new homes must be:
Photoelectric type only;
Hard wired to the electricity supply;
Interconnected to every other smoke alarm;
Installed in each bedroom;
Installed in hallways serving bedrooms; and
Installed in the exit path of every storey not containing bedrooms.
More information on the new laws is available from the Master Electricians Australia website here.
