Home Fire Alarm Devices (HFAD) are your residential smoke or heat alarms. Smoke or heat alarms are mandatory in all households with effect from June 2018, with existing owners urged by governments to comply.
Home Fire Alarm Devices (HFAD) serves as an early warning system in the event of a fire incident. The smoke and heat caused by the flames will trigger the alarm and alert the household. Early detection from the smoke or heat detectors allows residents to proceed to put out the small flames or evacuate if fire is too large to withstand.

According to the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF), Home Fire Alarm Devices (HFAD) must be adhered to either European, Australian or American standards for fire alarms - EN 14604, AS 3786 and UL 217.
Our alarm devices are generally powered by 10-year battery HFAD but there are also versions with replaceable dry-cell batteries HFAD that generally lasts a year or so.
Photoelectric or Optical sensors are generally used for smoke alarms. This is because these sensors are fast in detecting smoke from from burning objects. Once the smoke enters the HFAD chamber, smoke will cause the light beam to deflect and hit the photo cell causing the HFAD to be activated, thus alarming actions to be done.
In order to effectively place the HFAD for maximum coverage, for single storey home, the HFAD should be installed in center of the living room.
For multi-storey homes, each floor will require at least one HFAD.
If the combined living and dining room area more than 70 sq m, it will require at least two HFAD to be installed.
Installed along circulation area / escape route e.g living room, corridor or staircase landings.
Additional Smoke detectors can be installed in other spaces for enhanced protection by the home owner's request.
