Hardwired & Interconnected Smoke Detectors
A properly functioning smoke detector system alerts you to an emergency at the first sign of trouble, which gives you more time to get your family safely out of the house. Unfortunately, malfunctioning smoke detectors, dead batteries, and wiring issues can have devastating consequences. The NFPA strongly urges homeowners to implement a hardwired, interconnected smoke detector system.

Smoke Detector FAQ
Do I Need an Electrician to Replace Hardwired Smoke Detectors?
Yes, you need a professional electrician who installs smoke detectors to replace your hardwired smoke detectors. Whether you're upgrading your home's system or want to replace old detectors, it can be incredibly dangerous to do anything with your home's wiring on your own. Our electricians will work with you to create a system to provide the ultimate protection for your family and property.
How Do Interconnected Smoke Detectors Work?
Smoke detectors that are wired together in an interconnected system means that if a smoke detector goes off in an upstairs bedroom, the rest of the smoke detectors in the house will also go off. Wherever your family members are in the house, they will be able to hear the alarm. This provides better protection for your home and more time for the family to get out in an emergency.
Hard wired, interlinked smoke detectors also come with a battery backup. This ensures that your smoke detectors will continue to work even if the power goes out. Proper maintenance is important to make sure the system is working as it should be. You will need to replace the batteries, as need, and test the smoke detectors to make sure everything is working.

When Do Hardwired Smoke Detectors Need to Be Replaced?
If you are relying on old battery-powered smoke detectors or you haven’t given the system a thought in years, now is the right time to make sure your family is protected by scheduling home smoke detector service. Regulations and recommendations have changed and older homes may not have enough smoke detectors they may not be placed where they are needed.
Consider replacing smoke detectors when:
- The smoke detectors are more than 10 years old
- The existing system isn’t functioning right
- You are remodeling your home
- Building an addition or converting existing space to a bedroom
Smoke detectors should be placed in every bedroom, in the kitchen, staircases, hallways, and living areas. If you don’t have smoke detectors in these places, we can provide smoke detector installation in Sugar Land to give you the peace of mind of knowing that your family is protected.
