Update Existing Smoke Alarms With Red

One the busiest sectors in the smoke alarm market at the moment is upgrades to existing premises. Many people own homes with older ionisation smoke alarms. These alarms usually aren’t interconnected and they’re not placed throughout the home in a way that is compliant with new legislation. To maintain compliance with a rental property, or enable a sale of an existing property, these homeowners are looking for solutions.

Red smoke alarms offer a perfect solution for these upgrades. Ideally we’ll hard wire the alarms. If that’s not possible (eg older homes with flat ceilings) we can use wireless smoke alarms. This means we can retrofit any home on the Gold Coast.

Their alarms also come with the wireless smoke alarm controller. This means you can mute a false alarm (burnt toast anyone?) or test the entire system in one go. If you’re adding these alarms to your rental property then this is a simple and elegant solution. The alternative, a smartphone operated system, isn’t nearly as suitable in this application. 

We’re happy to use and recommend Red smoke alarms. If you want a quote for installing them on your property please call us or click the Smoke Alarm Installation button below.
