Important information about smoke alarms – Queensland
All smoke alarms being installed in Queensland must meet Australian Standard 3786-2014. Therefore as this product meets Australian Standard 3786-1993, we do not sell this product into Queensland. A same product that meets this standard will be available for sale soon; consider also our new 10-Year Lithium Photoelectric Smoke Alarm.
The Family First Photoelectric Smoke Alarm Combo Pack are two battery-operated smoke detectors, suitable for most areas of the house including bedrooms, living rooms and the garage. This combo pack is a good way to bolster protection at home in additional rooms such as another sleeping areas and the kitchen.
The two alarms have ‘test’ buttons for confidence that they are working through recommended regular testing, and one has a ‘hush’ button to silence it from false alarms when needed which makes its placement in or near the kitchen ideal. Tested to Australian Standard AS3786-1993, they offer you peace of mind with a 10-year warranty.
The photoelectric smoke alarm type is superior technology for better protection compared to the older ionisation type. More sensitive to larger smoke particles, which are typically produced in greater amounts by smouldering fires that can smoulder for hours before bursting into flames, you can be notified sooner of incidents and benefit from less false alarms from cooking.
