Update on Scottish legislation change for fire and smoke detectors
Natalie here from the UK SimpliSafe team. If you’re a customer based in Scotland, you will be aware that the law on fire alarms is changing from February 2022. This means all Scottish homes will need to have interlinked alarms.
Whilst the SimpliSafe Smoke Detector monitors for smoke and fires; and if you are on the Pro Premium plan, our monitoring centre can request fire service dispatch upon a visually verified incident, it is not interlinked. Therefore, the SimpliSafe Smoke Detector does not meet the new regulations in Scotland. For further information on these new guidelines, we recommend you refer to your local government’s website.
If you are a customer based in England, Wales or Northern Ireland, the fire and smoke regulations have not changed and the SimpliSafe Smoke Detector remains an appropriate fire detection system.
If you have any questions, you can contact the team on 0800 920 2420.
