    What is a fire alarm system?

    A fire alarm system is designed to alert you to the presence of a fire in your building. It’s a security system designed to help you protect your building from a fire. Available in a range of models and at varying costs, some will be able to tell you the general vicinity of a fire, while others will be able to tell you which exact device has sensed a fire.

    Can I install a fire alarm system myself?

    This is a question that often comes up when people are looking into getting a fire alarm system in a bid to save themselves some money.

    Unfortunately, it’s actually illegal for you to install a fire alarm system by yourself. The only people who are able to do so are those who have the necessary training and qualification, which include the Design Certification and Installation Certification.

    But even if it was allowed, we would recommend that you hire a professional to install the system for you anyway. Doing it yourself would likely lead to buying too many or too few devices than is actually needed, the placement of them could be ineffective, and there’s always a chance that it wouldn’t even work, which would require you to call in a professional to fix anyway.

    Plus, many professionals (Detek Fire & Security Services included) would be of great assistance in helping you find the best fire alarm system to meet your needs, potentially saving you some money and helping to keep your property safe.
