Testing, Maintenance and Installation of Smoke Alarms Brisbane

A smoke alarm is an important and essential piece of kit for any home. Having them installed in your home, significantly reduces the chance of death if a house fire unfortunately starts. If you need smoke alarm installation in Brisbane, Rob Martin Electrical have a team of experts to help you out.


It’s also advised to test and maintain your smoke alarm at regular intervals, to ensure its working well. A smart photoelectric smoke alarm works by detecting the early signs of smoke and alerting you so you can escape. Without a smoke alarm, your sense of smell may not detect the smoke while you sleep and you’ll be overcome by toxic fumes. We can place alarms throughout your home which are interconnected, ensuring you’ll be alerted wherever you are in your home.
