What Are Mains Interlinked Smoke Alarms?

And why your property needs them.

In this article we explore what mains interlinked smoke alarm systems are and why it is hugely beneficial for your property to have one.

Mains interlinked smoke alarm systems are a very important advancement in fire safety technology, created to provide extra protection for homes and commercial properties.

These smoke alarm systems consist of interconnected smoke detectors that are directly wired into the property’s electrical mains. When one alarm detects smoke/fire, it triggers a chain reaction, so all interconnected alarms will sound simultaneously, alerting everyone throughout the building.

The biggest advantage of these interlinked smoke alarm systems is their ability to give you early warning in case of fire, increasing the chances of safe evacuation and minimising potential damage.

Unlike standalone battery alarms, mains interlinked smoke alarm systems make sure that every person is promptly alerted, regardless of where they are in the building.

Also, some alarms may come with additional features like carbon monoxide detection, ensuring full protection against multiple threats. Regular smoke alarm testing and maintenance are essential to keep the system in full working order.

In conclusion, mains interlinked smoke alarm systems are a smart investment for anyone seeking full fire safety and peace of mind for you property and loved ones.

'Joss and his team were pulled late into our project because it had confounded others, so his timeline was horrifyingly short. NSN performed a fresh assessment, quickly offered options, quotes, and a timeline, and had their team on the project within a week. Joss kept us informed and was unflaggingly generous of his time and expertise.'

Frequently asked questions

How do I create an electrically functional home?

Electrics help to create a functional home that meets all your needs. It’s crucial, as not enough lighting and lack of power points can really affect your enjoyment of your home.

Bringing an electrician in on your project early, will give you an advantage on how you can get the best out of your home.


Can electrician sign off their own work?

Only if they are affiliated with an electrical representing body. Here at NSN Electrical we have a 20years affiliation with NAPIT – One of the top electrical governing bodies.

Can I change my light switch to a dimmer switch?

This depends on your current lighting, if it is dimmable or not.

We may have to also assess if the box behind the switch is deep enough to take a dimmer switch, as a dimmer switch recesses further into the wall than a standard switch.

We have solutions for all the above and we would be more than happy to find a solution for you.
