Upgrade today to protect your family

In 2017, the Queensland Government introduced new legislation throughout the state, to improve the level of safety in Queensland homes.  This new smoke alarm legislation will make Queensland households the safest in Australia in relation to fire safety.

The new legislation specifies that all Queensland dwellings will be required to have interconnected photoelectric smoke alarms in all bedrooms, in hallways that connect bedrooms with the rest of the dwelling and on every ceiling level.

A 10-year phased rollout of interconnected photoelectric smoke alarms in Queensland will happen over three specific periods starting from 1 January 2017.

What does this mean for your properties?

To comply with this new legislation, interconnected photoelectric smoke alarms are required:

· From 1 January 2017: in all new dwellings and substantially renovated dwellings.

· By 31 December 2021: in all domestic dwellings leased and sold.

· By 31 December 2026: in all other domestic dwellings.

BROOKS Smoke Alarms - We’ve got you covered


Smart elec EXCLUSIVELY uses Brooks Photoelectric Smoke Alarms, with 230V AC mains power supply and a non-removable, rechargeable, lithium battery back-up. Where no power is present, or possible, we use Brooks Smoke Alarms with 10 Year Lithium Batteries built in.


The Brooks alarms feature a high performance photoelectric smoke sensor, ideal for detecting smoke from slow, smouldering fires. In addition, the chamber design, integrated insect screen, and unique dust compensation algorithm, reduce the risk of false alarms.



The EIB3016 is powered by 230V AC mains. In the event of mains failure, the rechargeable 10-year, built-in, non-removable lithium battery will provide up to 3 months power supply in the case of a wireless RF installation, or up to 6 months in any other case.


The EIB650iRF is powered by an internal Lithium Battery, designed to last 10 years. These alarms incorporate a wireless interconnect system, which allows them to talk to each other, and can also be connected to the EIB3016 alarm by means of a wireless adapter in the powered smoke alarm.


The EIB3014 is powered by 230V AC mains. This is a heat alarm, designed to detect changes in the heat signature of a room, instead of smoke. Ideal for kitchens, or rooms with a combustion stove or heater.


The AudioLINK feature in all models facilitates the download of the alarm parameters and status using the AudioLINK app on your compatible smart phone.


Each Brooks unit can operate as a standalone alarm or can be interconnected either by cabling or wirelessly, enabling them to communicate with compatible Brooks alarms and accessories. Up to 12 devices can be interconnected.


Brooks alarms self-check their sensor, battery voltage and internal circuitry every 48 seconds. Any fault condition found will be indicated by a combination of yellow LED flashes and chirps.


The memory feature allows an alarm that has previously activated to be easily identified (through the red flashing LED).



One off inspection and report: $105. We will inspect your entire electrical system, including smoke alarm requirements, switchboard, cabling, light switches and fittings, power points and fixed electrical appliances. We will the provide a comprehensive 15 point safety report to let you know of any issues that may arise in the next 12 months.
