Smoke alarm legislation changes in QLD

Queensland smoke alarm legislation has changed, requiring all substantially renovated residences and new properties approved after January 1st, 2017 to be fitted with interconnected, photoelectric smoke alarm systems.

  • Smoke alarms must be located:
    • on each storey
    • in all bedrooms
    • in hallways that connect bedrooms to the rest of the house
    • if there's no hallway, between bedrooms and other parts of the storey
    • if there are no bedrooms on a storey, at least one smoke alarm must be installed in the most likely path of travel to exit the home
  • All smoke alarms must be the photoelectric type.
  • Smoke alarms must be either hardwired to your home's mains power supply with a battery backup, or 10-year non-removable lithium battery powered alarms.
  • Smoke alarms are required to be interconnected with every smoke alarm in the dwelling so if one is triggered all activate together providing the best and earliest warning of a fire.
  • Interconnection can be either wired or wireless.

The updated legislation also states that every alarm replaced or installed from 1 January 2017 must be a photoelectric type smoke alarm.

For your safety and the safety of everyone in your home, hardwired smoke alarms must be installed by a licenced electrician.

Why use photoelectric smoke alarms?

Photoelectric smoke alarms 'see' the smoke. These alarms detect visible particles of combustion. Photoelectric alarms are particularly responsive to smouldering fires which give off a lot of smoke. This style of smoke alarm provides residents with the earliest warning of a fire situation.

For more information on the updated legislation and details on the relevant deadline for when your home needs to comply refer to our post - How the new QLD smoke alarm legislation affects you or download the Queensland Fire and Emergency Services fact sheet.
