Can I install FireSafeOnline alarms in my Queensland property?

Yes you can, if you meet the following requirement:

  • Currently don’t have any wired (240v) smoke alarms installed on the property. If this is the case, you will need to replace this alarm with a 240v smoke alarm.

How do I get a compliance certificate if I install FireSafeOnline alarms?

Good news! A compliance certificate is not needed. The seller of a Queensland property does not need to provide a certificate to to confirm the smoke alarms are installed and are compliant.

The seller only needs to tick yes or no to the relevant box in the schedule of the contract.

Before selling the property, the seller should ensure the smoke alarms installed are compliant in accordance with its
legal obligations under the Fire and Emergency Services Act.

Do I need a contractor or electrician to install my alarms?

No you won’t, our alarms are all wireless and run on a 10 year lithium battery. This means you can install them yourself. The pairing and installation is a simple 5 minute process.
