What type of smoke alarms should be installed?

In Victoria, both photoelectric and ionisation smoke alarm types are approved for use as household smoke alarms. The year the home was built affects what type of smoke alarm needs to be installed - any pre-1997 homes require only the 9v battery powered smoke alarm, whereas post-1997 (or majorly renovated) homes require the 240v type.
