The Building Code of Australia requires a 240 volt, mains powered smoke alarm for homes or residential rental properties built on or after the 1st of January 1995.
Smoke alarms should be installed in a convenient location to give occupants reasonable warning when they are asleep. Depending on the size and layout of your home, it may be necessary to install more than one smoke alarm to provide sufficient warning.
In a rental property, it is the responsibility of the building owner or landlord to install working smoke alarms.
