The CAVIUS Mains Powered Photoelectric Smoke Alarm has arrived!

Why choose a mains powered smoke alarm?

In Australia the law states residential homes constructed after 1st August 1997 must have smoke alarms connected to the mains power and with a backup battery. Our friends across the ditch installed this rule after seeing too many fire fatalities occur, largely due to homes not having smoke alarms installed or smoke alarms not working due to expired or removed batteries. The CAVIUS Mains Powered Photoelectric Smoke Alarm, also known as a hardwired alarm, is available in both New Zealand and Australia and is designed to meet regulations and give you that extra piece of mind.

The CAVIUS Mains Powered Photoelectric Smoke Alarm ticks all the boxes to keep you covered:

  • Alarm is powered by the mains circuit with a back-up battery.
