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 recommend this product in Queensland. An updated version of this product that meets this standard is our Photoelectric Smoke Alarm (FFPDC).
The Family First Photoelectric Smoke Alarm is a basic battery-operated smoke detector, suitable for most areas of the house including bedrooms, living rooms, hallways, stairwells and the garage.
The alarm’s ‘test’ button allows you to be confident it is working through regular recommended testing. Tested to Australian Standard AS3786-1993, it offers you peace of mind along with a 10-year warranty.
The photoelectric smoke alarm type is superior technology that will provide you with better protection compared with older ionisation types. 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.
