I called back number (02) 9657 4290 spoke to a woman who said company name is Detector Inspector. Caller: Detector Inspector
To arrange a routine smoke alarm service at the house I rent. All above board from my point of view as this is an annual routine service.
Answered but they did not respond Caller: Detector Inspector - Smoke Alarm Testing company
This is a bona fide company who tests smoke alarms, usually via your real estate agent
Caller: dont know
Not happy with this I will organize my own smoke alarm testing at my own home
Caller: Detector Inspector
Technically a real company, but their call centre aggressively harrasses in order to generate more business.
Not a great track record. See reviews of them elsewhere as well.
Caller: Dectector Inspector
Received letter, not from my real estate but them advising they have been assigned to inspect my rented property. Letter did not come from real estate. They then sent a SMS text. I cancelled the appointment. They then called, it was an automated voice message asking me to hold. I then hung up
Caller: Detector Inspector
They are legit. They’ve tested my smoke alarms annually since I’ve been renting and was confirmed by my real estate.
Caller: It is a genuine company called detector inspector
It is their syd office . Head office is Melbourne . Its not a scam .
Funnily enough they didn't know my name but asked for it which I declined. Scam scam scam Caller: Fire alarm smoke detector inspector??? Firm
This is not a legitimate business transaction- do not allow this business to make you believe they need to check your fire alarms/smoke detectors, don’t give any private information to them. If it was a legitimate transaction they would have your information from the real estate, & you’d be expecting their call.
Don’t speak to them believe you me any transaction requests that are required will always be actioned first through your real estate agent directly to you if you are a renter.
This is a fairly clever scam I believe because it seems somewhat legitimate initially until you realise it’s not.

This is a scam. They are not engaged by your real estate agent, they do not have authorization to enter your home and they do not have a legal basis to drum up business this way. At best, it is misleading conduct under the Trade Practices Act and you should call the Fair Trading Commission (NSW) and lodge a formal complaint or report them to the NSW Police Force. The callers are from a call center in (surprise!) the Philippines. If you entertain these idiots, you will be fleeced.
Not legit - I own my house yet they insisted my real estate agent asked them to call. Penny finally dropped and they hung up pissed off with me.
