Smoke Alarms

Have questions?

We can’t smell smoke while asleep, so a working smoke alarm can literally save your life.

Because they live on ceilings, smoke alarms aren’t the easiest things to install and maintain. This is why we offer a range of options for smoke and heat alarm supply and installation, servicing, and testing.

Installing smoke alarms and heat alarms

We can supply and install long-life micro or standard size photoelectric smoke alarms in the appropriate locations around your home or that of a loved one.

Prices listed on our smoke alarm installation pages are for supply and installation of one desired unit, with additional units available for a discounted price.

The long-life micro heat alarms we supply and install are designed for kitchens, garages and other select locations around the home.

Servicing and testing smoke alarms

Fire and Emergency New Zealand recommend you test and service your smoke alarms regularly to keep them functioning and ready to protect you in the event of a fire.

We can take care of this for you — we’ll replace the battery, clean the unit, and then test it. If the smoke alarm fails the test, we can install a new one for you at an additional cost.
