Smoke alarms Hawthorne
From 1 January 2017
All new homes or units and substantially renovated homes or units that are subject to a building application submitted from 1 January 2017, will require the installation of hardwired, photoelectric interconnected smoke alarms.
Smoke alarms in the dwelling must:
be photoelectric (AS3786-2014); and
not also contain an ionisation sensor; and
be hardwired to the mains power supply with a secondary power source (i.e. battery); and
be interconnected with every other smoke alarm in the dwelling so all activate together. The legislation requires smoke alarms must be installed in the following locations:
on each storey
in each bedroom
in hallways that connect bedrooms and the rest of the dwelling
if there is no hallway, between the bedroom and other parts of the storey; and
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 dwelling.
I've use Sam at Eco Electrical a few times over the years, about to use him again, so I thought I should write him a review! Would recommend him to anybody. Not only is he prompt, professional and does a great job. He's quite reasonably priced as well. From my air-con install to upgrading fans, light switches and other things, he's been great.read more

Sam is an absolute professional and I could not recommend more highly. He is efficient, is easy to contact, always arrived on time and provided clear and transparent quotes and indications of time to complete each time we engaged him. Initially we got him in to install some fans and add some power points, then to install 4 aircons and then install downlights and a few other bits and bobs. Sam was reliable, very reasonably priced and friendly and takes a lot of care in his work which my wife loved given we have a 2yo son running around.read more

Sam and his team did an excellent job installing down lights throughout the first floor of our property yesterday. We had two other electricians come to provide quotes and say it could not be done, and it turns out they were totally wrong! We are extremely happy with the quality of the work carried out and the price was very competitive. Furthermore we were really impressed with their proactive attitude and overall professionalism. We will certainly be using them again in the future and would highly recommend Eco Electrical!read more

About photoelectric alarms
Photoelectric smoke alarms, detect visible particles of combustion and respond to a wide range of fires. Any existing smoke alarm being replaced from 1 January 2017 must be a photoelectric-type alarm which complies with Australian Standard 3786-2014. If a smoke alarm which is hardwired to the domestic power supply needs replacement, it must be replaced with a hardwired photoelectric smoke alarm. In existing domestic dwellings, it is possible to have a combination of smoke alarms (240v and battery operated) and interconnectivity can be both wired and wireless.
Smoke alarms must not be placed within:
300mm of a corner of a ceiling and a wall
300mm of a light fitting
400mm of an air-conditioning vent
400mm of the blades of a ceiling fan.
There are special requirements for stairways, sloping ceilings, and ceilings with exposed beams. Every dwelling is different so you will need to assess yours. Avoid installation in the following positions:
in dead air space. This is an area in which trapped hot air will prevent smoke from reaching the alarm. This space generally occurs at the apex of cathedral ceilings, the corner junction of walls and ceilings, and between exposed floor joists.
near windows, doors, fans or air-conditioners. Excessive air movement may prevent smoke and gases from reaching the smoke alarm or cause nuisance alarms.
Accidental alarms can be a nuisance and become dangerous if home owners remove the alarm batteries or disable an interconnected system to silence the alarm. Nuisance alarms can be avoided by not placing alarms in or near kitchens where cooking smoke can set them off, or in or near bathrooms where steam often causes accidental alarms. Also avoid insect infested areas, as insects flying into the alarm can trigger an alarm.
