Rechargeable Smoke Alarms

Do you want to avoid the hassle of changing your smoke alarm batteries every year? With the integration of modern Lithium-Ion batteries, there are now smoke alarms with batteries that will last the full 10 year lifetime of the smoke alarm.

Kenner Electrics recommends hardwired photoelectric smoke alarms with a rechargeable 10 year battery for reliability and ease of use. These alarms are hardwired to 240V mains power, and also have a lithium ion backup battery that is rechargeable. The rechargeable battery will last for the whole 10 year life of your smoke alarm without you having to change any batteries!

Kenner Electrics also offers high quality 10 year battery only smoke alarms with wireless interconnection for those hard to access locations.

Kenner Electrics installs quality Clipsal photoelectric smoke alarms.

What You Need To Know

Smoke alarms are so important for the safety of your home and your family. No one likes to think about their house catching fire, so smoke alarms are often overlooked. But with advancements in technology and updates to regulations, having your smoke alarms checked has never been so important.

Did you know?

  • All smoke alarms expire after 10 years! This means they require replacement every 10 years to keep your home and family safe
  • Smoke alarms should be tested regularly to ensure they are working correctly
  • Photoelectric smoke alarms are recommended by the MFB and the CFA for home smoke alarms as they are more effective at detecting common home fires
  • Hard-wired smoke alarms offer the added security of having 2 sources of power; mains power for everyday use and a battery back-up in case of power failure
  • Interconnected smoke alarms ensure that everyone in your house will hear the alarm in event of a fire
  • Smoke alarms must be hard-wired, interconnected and installed on each level of your home and within 1.5m of bedroom doors to meet the Building Code of Australia (BCA or NCC)

The service was incredible. It was not just the workmanship but the after service support and follow up that made the real difference. Thanks to the team from the bottom of my heart for making all our electrical problems go away and so efficiently as well.
