Install Smoke Alarm, Protect Your Family & Property

Each year Perth families lose a loved ones as a direct result of house fires. Many do not have working smoke alarms.

Only installation of a working smoke alarm can provide the critical early warning needed to save lives and minimise property damage. The qualified electricians at Perth's Cablenet Electrical Services can install mains powered and photo-electric alarms to help protect your home and family from fire.

It is also a legislative requirement that smoke alarms be fitted to all homes. Under the Building Code of Australia (BCA), mains-powered alarms must be fitted to all new homes and those undergoing significant renovations. For all other existing residential buildings mains powered smoke alarms were made compulsory from October 1, 2011.

While installation of mains powered smoke alarms are the preferred alternative, units with a non-removable ten year battery life are permitted in dwellings where the construction of the building does not permit a space to conceal the wiring and there is no other suitable alternative location or where mains power supply is not available.

System Variations

Cablenet's qualified electricians can advise on the installation of smoke alarms for your home or office, including:

Mains powered - A mains powered smoke alarm is one which is wired direct to a 240 volt AC power supply or to a 12/24 volt DC system powered by a 240 volt supply. Choose Cablenet's registered electricians for installation of mains powered smoke alarm systems to required Australian Standards.

Inter-connectable - Inter-connectable installation of smoke alarms can be set up in a network where if one is activated, all others on the same network will also activate. This is useful in larger homes where it may be difficult to hear the warning tone from the other end of the house or on another level.

Photo-electric - Photo-electric systems consistently provide sufficient time for occupants to escape from smouldering and flaming fires, provided they are installed and maintained properly and occupants hear them. Photo-electric systems consist of a light emitting diode and a light sensitive sensor in the sensing chamber. The presence of suspended smoke particles in the chamber scatters the light beam. This scattered light is detected and sets off the alarm.

Ionisation - Ionisation alarms use a small amount of radioactive material to ionise the air in the sensing chamber. As a result, the air chamber becomes conductive, permitting current to flow between two charged electrodes. The conductivity of the chamber air decreases once smoke particles enter the chamber. When conductivity is reduced to a predetermined level, the alarm is set off.
