Can you amend the Smoke Alarm symbol to say SA instead of SD, or have a separate Alarm and Detector altogether perhaps…

A council area in Sydney has requested me to change the plans referring to the Smoke Alarms.

A Smoke Detector is different to a Smoke Alarm hence they’re request…even though it seem’s ridiculous…

Kind Regards


Hi Matt,

Thank you for your post.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I will take it back to the development team for further discussion.

In the interim I would recommend to either update the Smoke Detector symbol or create your own component and symbol then use the BIM Tool to add the estimation information.

I’d be happy to assist you if you have any further enquiries.
