What we offer

With the adoption of modern Lithium-Ion batteries, there are now smoke alarms with batteries that will last the full 10 year lifetime of the smoke alarm.

Update your smoke alarm to a hard-wired photoelectric rechargeable smoke alarm and you won’t have to change the battery for the life of your alarm! 

Kenner Electrics also offers annual smoke alarm testing.

What you need to know

Do you know when your smoke alarms were installed? Or what type of alarm you have?

  • All smoke alarms have a strict working lifetime of 10 years. This means they require replacement every 10 years to keep your home and family safe. 
  • 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.
  • Interconnecting smoke alarms ensures that the whole house is warned in case of a fire. 
  • 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.
  • Smoke alarms should be tested regularly to ensure they are working correctly.
  • 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)

Kenner Electrics installs quality hard-wired Clipsal photoelectric smoke alarms.

Have used Kenner Electrics 3 times in recent months. Very happy with their quick, reliable and friendly service. Will definitely use them again. In fact I now refer to them as "our electricians".

We were extremely happy with the work, the electricians were efficient, listened well to our concerns and everything was completed on time and for a reasonable fee!

It's so refreshing to have a tradesman arrive when he says he's going to, do exactly what he promises to do and then clean up and replace everything that's been moved. I recommend Kenner Electrics to everyone I know.

As Vice President of the Whitehorse Mustangs basketball club, I reached out to Kenner Electrics for a quote to relocate the scoreboard at Orchard Grove Primary School. ...They came back and offered to do the work at no cost to the Club! We were gobsmacked! Their support means those hard-earned funds can now be used toward building our club.
