We analysed our building layout including our temporary living quarters and selected 4 devices, 1 optical smoke detector, 2 ionising smoke detectors and 1 heat sensor, all linked together as required in the regulations. The two ionising type of detectors are for the store room and our living quarters in the corridor between the lounge and bedroom 1. The optical type is in the kitchen and finally the heat sensor in the garage right up front on the highest point of the room (the ceiling slopes upwards towards the front).

We started laying in the 3 core & earth, lighting grade cable, through the building. We will tap into the lighting circuit in the garage.

The detectors should be arriving soon, along with batteries for each of them.
