Is there a requirement to monitor a fire pump or fire protection sprinkler riser room's temperature with the fire alarm system?
It is clear from NFPA 72 that the device needs to be added to the fire alarm panel if it is present.
NFPA 13, 14, and 20 don't seem to have a need to monitor the room's temperature.
From NFPA 72 (2016 Edition): Section 17.16.5 Room Temperature Supervisory Signal - Initiating Device. A room temperature supervisory device shall indicate a decrease in room temperature to 40 degrees (4.4 C) and its restoration to above 40-degrees (4.4 C).
