Hi all, Wonder if anyone has experience of approaching smoke alarm concerns, individual, and building, on whether a specialised alarm firm or a licensed electricial firm does that work. Apparently it has to be in line with local council  guidelines. Thanks a lot.

It would help to know where you are. In NSW smoke alarms are covered by state government legislation:

In a nutshell:

There are plenty of specialised fire safety firms/electricians who do fire safety work. A good place to start would be raising concerns with whoever does your annual fire safety check.

The fire safety check requirements are covered by the fire safety legislation & if you're a strata committee member it's worth a read:

(& apologies if you're not in NSW.)

Thanks it's NSW, What is really wanted is a tip on whether to get an electrician or a specialist alarm co.  The present one is telling us there is something amiss and haven't been able to identify the problem.  I believe a fresh firm's idea is called for - what type of firm to call is the question. Thanks!

The fire safety firm our OC uses is a member of an industry group, Fire Protection Association Australia:

http://www.fpaa.com.au/

They might be a good starting point for an answer to your question, information & local service providers.
