        Why you should not upgrade the smoke alarms in a property without including the Smoke Alarm Controller.

        When upgraded to meet the new Queensland legislation, most properties will have between 4-6 interconnected smoke alarms – if one goes off, they all go off – an incredibly loud and annoying experience. What does a tenant do when this happens?

        With the Smoke Alarm Controller, there is no need for the tenant to put up with the deafening noise, no need to run around the house trying to find out which smoke alarms are causing the problem, no need to get on a ladder – the alarms can be silenced from the one wall-mounted switch.

        This will result in fewer maintenance calls to you (often in the middle of the night), less stress for your tenants and less cost for your owners. Tenants won’t need to break a smoke alarm to stop it from going off, saving replacement costs.

        No property should have its smoke alarms upgraded and interconnected without including the Smoke Alarm Controller.

        RAC240 Smoke Alarm Controller on 4 February 2022

        This product does what it says it will do. However, the terminals on the PCB are very low down. When mounting onto a metal C clip, the cables coming out of the terminal are so low you have to bend them greater than 90 degrees to get the plate on the wall. Even then, when I pulled the plate off there was damage to the insulation from the metal C clip. Either the terminals have to be made higher on the PCB, or a mounting block has to be used. Which looks ugly. So either the terminals need to move up, or different terminals fitted allowing the wiring to be perpendicular to the board need to be used.
