Smoke detectors

Since February 2022 Scottish legislation states that an interlinked fire and smoke alarm system must be fitted in a property and that there should be adequate carbon monoxide protection. 


As a landlord you must have:

  • Smoke alarms in every circulation space on each storey, such as hallways and landings
  • Smoke alarms installed in every kitchen
  • All smoke and heat alarms should be interlinked
  • Carbon monoxide alarms to be fitted where there is a fuel burning appliance or a flue


We can install Interlinked home AICO smoke/heat detectors with House in Multiple Occupation (HMO) certification


More information is available on the AICO website.
