Picture this: you are comfortable sleeping in your bedroom when a smouldering fire starts in an infrequently used part of the house. The smoke alarm is working perfectly and sounds, but you do not hear it, and your first warning of the impending danger is when the fire has actually reached you and your loved ones, or worse. If only the alarm in your room had also been triggered!
As per the new legislation in terms of smoke alarms and smoke detectors in Queensland, all systems need to be interconnected. This simply means that if one of the smoke alarms detects smoke, all of your installed alarms sound. Pacific Smoke Alarms offers a full range of services that will allow you to evaluate and update your systems so that they are in full working order and fully compliant with the new legislation.
Getting To Grips With An Interconnected System
The concept of interconnected smoke alarms may be fairly easy to understand, but how does that actually happen? First of all, it is important to note that a licensed professional must install modern 240-volt smoke alarms. The smoke alarm units can be connected through physical wiring, or through wireless technology, or even through a combination of both. According to the legislation in Queensland, all smoke alarms must be a photoelectric type and adhere to the guidelines of compliance.
Why An Interconnected System Is So Important
The core purpose of a smoke alarm is to give you as much warning as possible of a fire or smoke-related threat to your safety. Mere minutes matter! If all your smoke alarms are connected, this offers you more valuable time to escape. By increasing the audibility of the alarm system and making sure that you will be alerted to fire regardless of where you are in your home, you are giving yourself an increased level of protection and safety in case of an emergency.
