New Smoke Alarm Requirements
Please be advised that as January 1, 2019, the state of New Jersey requires that battery powered single station smoke alarms be replaced with a ten year sealed battery powered smoke alarm.
While the State of New Jersey acknowledges that there will be an additional cost of these units, they determined that the increase was warranted to account for safety. These new units are not required to replace AC-Powered smoke alarms or multi station alarms.
