Hard Wired Smoke Alarms
Hardwired smoke alarms installation is mandatory in all newly constructed or substantially renovated Perth homes. For new homes, the smoke alarms must be installed with mains-powered (with battery back-ups in case of power failure), so they need to be installed by an electrician. Generally, you should have more than one and they should be interconnected so that if one goes off, so do the rest, maximizing the chances of alerting everyone in the house. The alarms must comply with the requirements of the Australian Standard AS 3786.
