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:
  • 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.


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