Satisfy The Current Regulations With QSA

Make sure you are compliant
with current regulations


Under the current Qld Regulations, there must be a minimum of one smoke alarm outside sleeping areas and one alarm on each level of the home.

Any existing fire alarm that expires (10 years from manufacture) or does not test properly, must be replaced with a photoelectric alarm compliant with Australian Standard 3786-2014.


Existing hard wired alarms

Must be replaced with hard wired photoelectric smoke alarms.

Current regulations

Apply to all rental properties until 1/1/22 and all other properties until 1/1/27.

Future regulations

After the 1/1/27 all Queensland dwellings must comply with QFES Amendment Act 2016.


The QSA Interconnected Service


Costs $187.00 per hard wired alarm or wireless and allows you to become compliant with future regulations progressively or immediately.


Upgrading to a 10 year lithium battery backup smoke alarm means you will never have to change a battery in your smoke alarm again and it only costs an extra $33.00. 

The cost of a normal 9V battery backup is approximately $6.60 per year (and you have to get up and change it) so over the life of the alarm you will save approx. $33.00 in batteries as well as limiting its maintenance.  

Future Proof Your Property

The Interconnected Service

Any new or significantly renovated Queensland residence from 1/1/17 must comply immediately to the NEW Fire and Emergency Services Qld Amendment Act 2016
