Hi can anyone assist.
House renovatiob was completed by a builder etc ,
Planning officer was in and stated that a heat detector was required in kitchen. This was to be interlinked with other smokes in the building .
Place has been fully decorated. Lathe and plaster ceilings and walls. ( old building )

No loop in live at lights in ceiling so that is where the problems start .

Now aico do a heat detector radio link with a ten year tamper proof lithium battery .
This is allowed as a tolerable standard by Scots government ( for rental properties) .

Planning officer wants the heat detector hardwired. I've shown the new Scots gov legislation and he states it doesnt cover non rental properties.
Hes stating
The Building Standards legislation only allows radio communication between hard wired alarms (ref: 2.11.10 Radio Linked Systems).

My understanding was the new legislation for smoke alarms was to bring domestic dwelling up to the same standard as rental properties

Any thoughts or advice .. direction from anyone in Scotland that's had similair.

Thanks
