The highest standard of quality for the highest level of protection.
Smoke alarm devices are essential at any home. Rightfully so, as timely warnings of fire and gases often save lives. Gira’s Basic Q, Dual Q, and wireless smoke alarm devices meet highest saftey standards. The label “Q” stands for certified quality, a long lifespan, increased durability, and less deceptive alarms. In addition, the photoelectric scattered light principle makes your home even safer: smart devices measure the density of fine smoke particles and trigger an alarm as soon as the threshold value is exceeded. Another benefit: the battery will last up to 10 years until the smoke alarm device must be replaced as required by law.
This product can be networked with other products.
This product is suitable for retrofitting.
Setting safety standards: the Basic Q smoke alarm device.
The Basic Q smoke alarm device operates on the scattered light principle and responds immediately if smoke arises, notifying you with a loud pulsing alarm (85 dB) and a red LED ring. Simple and effective. But the Gira Basic Q smoke alarm device is not only functional. It’s also aesthetic, with an understated design that matches any interior. All in all, this device makes your entire home a safer place.
Dual detection, twice as safe: the Dual Q smoke alarm device.
Gira’s new Dual Q smoke alarm device is equipped with two detection processes. It detects even the smallest smoke particles using optical and sensor technology, with heat sensors registering any changes of the room's temperature. Thus, various types of fires (including liquid fire) can be identified more quickly and reliably – without false alarms triggered by cooking fumes, dust, or electronic interference.

FAQ - frequently asked questions about Gira smoke alarm devices
The smoke alarm signals "low battery", what should I do?
In most cases, the unit is past its replacement date; if it is more than 10 years old, it needs to be replaced. The first step is to check the replacement date on the back of the smoke alarm.
However, there are several other factors that can reduce the battery life. A full summary can be found in the operating instructions. Other factors for a weak battery are:
The frequency with which the smoke alarm is triggered: frequent false alarms or test alarms lead to an earlier discharge.
The location of the installation, in particular compliance with the installation instructions according to the operating manual: Excessive temperature fluctuations, e.g. due to environmental influences, lead to reduced battery life.
Networking of smoke alarms via the networking terminal: if several smoke alarms are connected to each other, the battery life can be reduced.
The additional use of modules: The use of additional functions (e.g. KNX signal transmitter) can also lead to a reduction in battery life.
If none of these factors apply to you, contact your local electrician to have the device checked.
If you do not have an electrical specialist available to carry out the inspection, please contact us.
The smoke alarm is beeping, what should I do?
The smoke alarms can emit different operating or alarm signals. Please refer to the operating instructions to find out what the signal indicates. Examples of operating signals:
a general fault (8 short signal tones in 60s cycle),
a weak battery (2 short signal tones in 60s cycle) or
an EMC fault (short signal tone in 1s cycle).
