Insurance & Smoke Detector Installations

Our electricians can test the operations of your current smoke detectors, replace batteries and install new smoke detectors to your home. Smoke alarm installation minimises the risk of fire and ensures you are meeting your home insurance obligations within Australia and NSW. Some home insurance policies reflect a “no alarm, no cover” policy where not having smoke detectors could void your cover.
