A smoke detector—or smoke alarm—is designed to detect smoke, heat or fire and let off an alert signal (a loud alarm noise). Whether the smoke alarm is placed in the hallway, in bedrooms or on factory floors, Australian law specifies that commercial and residential rental properties must have smoke alarms installed. That’s why it’s very important to have working smoke alarms on your property.
Along with upgrading safety switches, your smoke alarms are probably the most important piece of safety equipment that you have in your home. Yet each year people still die in house fires.
