Smoke Alarms NZ

Smoke alarms can be very annoying at times, but smoke alarms are essential for homes and businesses for safety and can save lives. Losing a house or a loved one can be very heart breaking and especially in times like winters when everyone uses electric blankets and heaters, there can be more chances for accidents and thus a reminder for us to be more careful than usual.

The one prime thing that you should never neglect in your property is the fire safety and by installing smoke alarms they will provide life-saving warnings to the residents of the property to get to a safe place before being trapped by fire or smoke.

How do you know your smoke alarm works?

Do you know that you lose your senses when you are asleep? Make sure you test your alarms monthly by pressing the test button on the smoke alarm to ensure it is operating properly and is loud and clear if you cannot reach the detector use a chair/ladder to stand and reach.

Photoelectric or Ionisation? Which smoke alarms are best?

Photoelectric smoke alarms are better in detecting slow smouldering fires, which burns fire for hours before flames erupt and Ionisation smoke alarms are better in detecting fast fires, which can spread quickly. Both smoke alarms tend to sense the smoke differently.

Fire and Emergency New Zealand recommends Photoelectric Smoke Alarms – these alarms have a sensing chamber so when smoke enters this chamber, light is emitted and triggers the alarm. These alarms are recommended to install in living areas, bedrooms and hallways and have proven to be more effective for the home environment as they respond faster to the smoke emanating from the large pieces of furniture such as sofas and furniture. The faster you are alerted, the faster you can move yourself and your family to the safety.
