Smoke Detector Should Be Hardwired

Detectors or Alarms should be wired, to work off the main electricity supply alongside a backup power supply A Battery, as is often the case that when batteries run out they are usually the last thing you think to replace once they are removed to prevent the smoke detector chirping which is there for a reason TO SAVE YOUR LIFE"

A PDF of the Fire and Rescue Incident Stats Scotland 2015-16 can be downloaded here:

Our fully qualified electrician’s can suggest on the best location to have detectors fitted, as certain alarms can be triggered by various activities, such as cooking, you would not place certain alarms outside the kitchen or outside a bathroom where steam from a bath or shower could set them off.

Smoke and Fire Detectors

The biggest advantage to having detectors wired into the main power supply is that there is no need to worry about battery life if they go flat the detectors will still work; however, they must be replaced as a backup power supply in case of power failure.

You also need to be made aware that even mains-powered detectors only have a certain shelf life, they should be replace at a push, every 10 years at a minimum to ensure they are working correctly.

The 4 main types of smoke and fire detectors:

Ionised Smoke Alarms

The least expensive, very sensitive at detecting smoke from fast-burning flames but less effective with slow-burning fires

Smoke detectors Heat detectors & Carbon Monoxide Alarms
An Ionised Smoke Alarm

Optical Smoke Alarms

More expensive, but more adept at detecting large particles of smoke from slow-burning fires, can be installed near kitchens, as they are less likely to be triggered by smoke from burnt food.

A Optical Smoke Alarm

A Heat Alarm

An alarm fitted in their kitchen, not sensitive to smoke and works by recognising a significant rise in temperature instead, such as that caused by a fire.

Carbon Monoxide

  1. Carbon Monoxide detection are also a life saver, however most folk never seem to think about until it is too late, you hear people talking about smoke alarms but very seldom do you hear them say I will need to get a Carbon Monoxide alarm installed!
  2. Carbon monoxide is colourless, odourless and tasteless.
  3. Carbon Monoxide at worst its effects are fatal, so the sooner it is detected the better.
  4. People do not know they are suffering from CO poisoning until it is too late.
  5. Carbon monoxide is mainly leaked by faulty or badly-maintained fuel-burning appliances and is known as the silent killer, the Scottish Government are urging landlords who rent private dwellings to install carbon monoxide alarms in their properties.

You could buy one and stick it to the wall with its batteries, but how many times would you replace them before forgetting them (It only takes One Time) have them wired to the main and a battery backup for peace of mind.
Research released by Shelter Scotland showed that around 20 people a year die in the UK from carbon monoxide poisoning 
Audible carbon monoxide alarms detect the presence of the excess CO and warn residents accordingly before it's too late.

Although they are simple to install just using a battery for power (however it should be wired to the mains electricity supply), carbon monoxide detectors should be fitted as per the manufacturer's instructions and serviced accordingly to avoid any potential warranty issues.

By law (section 22 of the Housing (Scotland) Act 2014) and takes effect from 1 December 2015, landlords must provide fire-detection and CO (Carbon Monoxide) equipment (e.g. a smoke alarm) in their property, these should be mains powered with a standby power supply (a Battery).

A dwelling should have satisfactory provision for detecting Fires, Smoke & CO and give warning in the event of fire or suspected fire.
Not only is it in your tenants interest, but it in your best interest of any landlord as the sooner any fire the sooner it can be Extinguished resulting in less damage to your property.


Installing detectors that can save life’s as well as property is great, however if these are not maintained they would as well not being there.

Maintaining Smoke Heat and CO2 detectors is a must to keep up the benefits they provide, why not take a look at the service we provide, to give you that bit more peace of mind knowing that these life saving devices are providing the insurance you deserve.
