The first step is always to check and ensure there is no danger present before hushing a sounding smoke alarm.
Do not remove the battery as the smoke alarms will no longer be fully functional and provide protection against the dangers of a house fire. We instead recommend you ‘hush’ the smoke alarm as this resets the alarm and leaves it functional.
Hushing a sounding smoke alarm can be dependant on the brand. Generally, a smoke alarm can be silenced by locating the hush button and pressing it. This will trigger a reset of the alarm which may take a few minutes. During this time, you may hear occasional beeps before it falls silent.
If pressing the hush button does not work, please contact our 24/7 Emergency Service on 1300 853 612
WARNING: If you damage or activate the end of life function, you will be charged for the alarm replacement. Alarm costs start from $124 per alarm.
