Hi

Although the regulations for social housing does not specify the type of alarm if you look at the Q&A paper private rented sector it states “The regulations do not stipulate the type of alarms to be installed. Landlords should make an informed decision and choose the best alarms for the properties and tenants”. I can not see the advice been different for social housing landlords.

Granted this legislation is way out of date with best practice, British StandardS along with the current and proposed standards for the rest of the UK.
