Smoke alarm requirements for insurance repairs
Under the new legislation, every Queensland residence will need to be fitted with photoelectric, hardwired or powered by a non-removable 10-year battery and interconnected smoke alarms in all bedrooms as well as in hallways or areas between bedrooms.
From 1 January 2022, landlords must install interconnected smoke alarms in residential rental properties. When one goes off, they all go off, giving everyone extra time to escape. All other dwellings must transition to full compliance by 2027.
