Where to put smoke alarm

Queensland Fire and Emergency Services highly recommends interconnected photoelectric smoke alarms be installed in all bedrooms and living spaces, including hallways and stairways, plus the garage to allow the earliest possible warning of fire for everyone in the home. Photoelectric type alarms detect visible particles of combustion, they are ideal for sensing all types of fires but are particularly good at early detection of smouldering fires. An added advantage of this style, as opposed to ionisation alarms, is they are less prone to false alarms due to cooking. Fitting a system of interconnected smoke alarms throughout your home means even if the fire starts in the kitchen those in bedrooms with the door shut and music playing will be alerted instantly. If one alarm detects smoke, all alarms sound.
