SECTION R314 SMOKE ALARMS
R314.1 Smoke detection and notification. All smoke alarms shall be
listed in accordance with UL 217 and installed in accordance with the
provisions of this code and the household fire warning equipment
provisions of NFPA 72.
R314.2 Smoke detection systems. Household fire alarm systems
installed in accordance with NFPA 72 that include smoke alarms, or a
combination of smoke detector and audible notification device installed as
required by this section for smoke alarms, shall be permitted. The
household fire alarm system shall provide the same level of smoke
detection and alarm as required by this section for smoke alarms. Where a
household fire warning system is installed using a combination of smoke
detector and audible notification device(s), it shall become a permanent
fixture of the occupancy and owned by the homeowner. The system shall
be monitored by an approved supervising station and be maintained in
accordance with NFPA 72.
Exception: Where smoke alarms are provided meeting the requirements of
Section R314.4.
R314.3 Location. Smoke alarms shall be installed in the following
locations:
1. In each sleeping room.
2. Outside each separate sleeping area in the immediate vicinity of
the bedrooms.
3. On each additional story of the dwelling, including basements and
habitable attics but not including crawl spaces and uninhabitable
attics. In dwellings or dwelling units with split levels and without an
intervening door between the adjacent levels, a smoke alarm installed
on the upper level shall suffice for the adjacent lower level provided
that the lower level is less than one full story below the upper level.
When more than one smoke alarm is required to be installed within
an individual dwelling unit the alarm devices shall be interconnected
in such a manner that the actuation of one alarm will activate all of
the alarms in the individual unit.

R314.3.1 Alterations, repairs and additions. When alterations,
repairs or additions requiring a permit occur, or when one or more
sleeping rooms are added or created in existing dwellings, the
individual dwelling unit shall be equipped with smoke alarms located
as required for new dwellings.
R314.5 Heat Detector. A single heat detector listed for the ambient
environment shall be
installed in:
1. Any integral garage (“garage under”) or attached garage to the main
house (detached garages do not require a heat detector).
2. A new addition attached garage to an existing dwelling. If the existing
house contains a fire detection system that is compatible with the garage
heat detector, then the detector shallbe interconnected to the existing
system. Where the existing fire detection system is not compatible with the
garage heat detector, the garage heat detector shall be connected to a
sounder (occupant notification appliance) or compatible heat detector
containing a sounding device, located in the dwelling and within 20 feet
(6096 mm) of the nearest door to the garage from the dwelling. The
required garage heat detector is neither required to incorporate audible
alarm notification nor is any audible notification device required in the
garage.
R314.5.1 Heat Detector Placement. For flat-finished ceilings, the single
heat detector shall be placed on or near the center of the garage ceiling.
For sloped ceilings having a rise to run of greater than one foot in eight feet
(305 mm in 2438 mm), the single heat detector shall be placed in the
approximate center of the vaulted ceiling but no closer than four inches
(102 mm) to any wall.
R315.1 Governing Regulations. Carbon monoxide alarms (alarms) for
new construction and
existing dwellings shall be furnished, installed and maintained by the owner
in accordance with this section, M.G.L. c. 148, § 26F½ , 527 CMR 31.00:
Carbon Monoxide Alarms, 248 CMR, NFPA 720 and the manufacturer’s
instructions.
R315.2 Installation Locations. One alarm shall be installed on each story
of a dwelling unit, including basements and cellars (but not including crawl
9
spaces and uninhabitable attics). When mounting a carbon monoxide alarm
on a story with a bedroom, the alarm, shall be located outside of bedrooms
but no further than 10 feet of any bedroom door. If a combination
smoke/carbon monoxide alarm is used, its location must comply with this
section.
R315.3 New Construction. Alarms shall either be an interconnected 120V
or part of a low voltage combination system or wireless system. Alarms
shall have secondary (standby) power from monitored batteries in
accordance with NFPA 72. For fire alarm control units (panels) and
wireless systems, the panel battery shall serve as the source of secondary
power. Alarms shall be UL 2034 or UL 2075 listed, as applicable. Alarms
may be interconnected with fire alarms providing they are compatible and
the fire alarms take precedence.
R315.4 Existing Dwellings. For existing dwellings, carbon monoxide
alarms shall be provided in accordance with Section 315 for new
construction, as applicable, for the following circumstances:
1. When one or more bedrooms are added or created in a dwelling unit, the
entire dwelling
shall be provided with alarms.
2. When a dwelling unit undergoes complete reconstruction such that all
walls and ceilings are open to framing the entire dwelling unit shall be
provided with alarms.
3. In an existing two-family dwelling, when one or more bedrooms are
added or created in both of the two dwelling units, the entire building shall
be provided with alarms.
4. In a townhouse building when one or more bedrooms are added or
created in a dwelling then that dwelling unit shall be provided with carbon
monoxide alarms.
5. In a townhouse building when a dwelling unit undergoes complete
reconstruction such that all walls and ceilings are open to framing, that
