Please see the images attached.

I have fire alarm device families in my floor plan that appear fine at 1:50 scale. As soon as i edit my Plan to 1:200 Scale, the family size increase's also. How do i stop this?

These families came from a linked file that i bounded.. I am using Revit 2014.

Cheers Andy

Those families are probably symbols - not model families.   Symbols are annotative and don't scale with the view.

How can i scale the symbols accordingly? They are part of my reflective ceiling plan and we need to co-ordinate accurately.

You don't scale these unless you build a new family.  You seem to want model elements.

 

You say you "bounded" the file.   Do you mean you binded the linked file into yours?
