Smoke Alarms

Are Smoke Alarms Important?

When properly installed, located, and maintained, smoke alarms save lives. Did you know that there are more than 20,000 house fires in Australia each year and that one in three households visited don’t have a working smoke alarm?? Annual servicing of smoke alarms is recommended nationally and mandated in a number of states in an attempt to minimise injury and death from household fires.

We provide annual smoke alarm inspection and maintenance services to:

  • Individual Households
  • Property Management Business Portfolios
  • Childcare Centres
  • Residential Unit Complexes, and
  • Early Retirement Villages.

Apart from our inspection and maintenance service we can assist you to change to Photoelectric Devices, update your current battery devices to a 240v system or even assist with the transition to the new requirements for interconnected systems. We advise, sell, install, and test all of these systems. Let us keep you compliant with the most up to date requirements for your home or business.

At AWTT, we ensure that each of your properties is compliant with the smoke alarm legislation and standards applicable in each state and territory. We help keep building occupants safe and ensure that business owners, landlords and property managers are fulfilling their compliance obligations.

How We Keep You Safe and Compliant


We visually inspect every smoke alarm in every building for signs of damage or deterioration and ensure that you have the required number for the size of the building and that they are positioned correctly.


We conduct a maintenance test on each alarm, including smoke, button, and decibel testing, we replace batteries and faulty or expired smoke alarms.


We provide you with a written report outlining all actions taken during the maintenance visit, all equipment maintained or replaced and any recommendations for change identified during the visit. This report serves as your service record for your smoke alarms and needs to be retained for audit purposes.

The Guiding Document

The document that guides your compliance for smoke alarm inspection and maintenance is Australian Standard AS 3786-2014. Our clients automatically receive updates on any changes to this Standard or any change to individual state or territory requirements.
