Danish designed. Queensland compliant.

Interconnected smoke alarms that are safe, stylish and Queensland compliant.

It’s now time to get compliant.

As of 1st January 2022, before a new lease is signed; every Queensland rental property is legally required to have interconnecting smoke alarms in all bedrooms, hallways and on each storey. It’s easy to replace your old smoke alarms with a CAVIUS fully compliant, compact alarm system.

Compliance checklist:

10 Year
Battery

Mains
Powered

All smoke alarms must be either powered by mains power or non-removal 10 year battery. When replacing any existing installed alarms in the dwelling, these must be ‘like for like’ i.e. a hardwired/mains powered alarm must be replaced with a hardwired/mains powered alarm.

Wireless
Interconnectivity

All smoke alarms must be interconnected with each other, this can either be wired or wireless. The CAVIUS Wireless Family alarms all connect with each other wirelessly, without the need to run cable between each alarm.

Core
Technology

All smoke alarms must be photoelectric (cannot contain an ionisation sensor) and comply with Australian standards AS3786:2014.

INSTALLATION

Installed in all bedrooms, hallways, and between areas containing bedrooms. If there are no bedrooms on a storey, at least one smoke alarm must be installed in the most likely path of travel to exit the dwelling.

Refined.
Elegant.
Compliant

The CAVIUS Wireless Family photoelectric alarms interconnect with each other, powered by a 10-year battery or mains powered – making them fully compliant with Queensland’s new legislation. Our Wireless Family isn’t just a better-looking alarm system, it’s a safer one.

Product details

Danish by design and fitted with CAVIUS CORE technology, the Wireless Family 10 Year Photoelectric Smoke Alarm is the smallest and most aesthetically pleasing interconnected alarm in Australia.

The alarm comes with two installation options; either flush mounted (38mm profile) or recessed (19mm profile) to give you a low-profile and sleek look.

The Wireless Family range interconnect with each other using innovative Radio Frequency technology, built inside (removing to need to purchase additional RF modules or wireless bases), so when one alarm activates, they all sound. Setting up and interconnecting your alarms is simple and takes less than a minute.

CAVIUS alarms have been designed and manufactured to cope with the harsh Australian environment; including two levels of mesh screening to minimise insect and dust contamination – alleviating the potential for false alarms.

The alarm will calibrate every 365 days allowing to retain the optimal safety detection during its lifetime, is AS3786:2014 certified, has an easy to access 10-minute hush button (or the alarms can be silenced using the CAVIUS Smart Remote) and comes with a 10 year warranty.

The range between alarms will depend on the building materials and should be tested in each individual case. A maximum range of 200m in plain line of sight.
