What are the required system components for a Fire Alarm System versus a Fire Sprinkler Monitoring System?
I've ran into a debate on this in multiple jurisdictions. I know a fire alarm system has occupant notification and initiating devices, such as the smoke detectors, pull stations, waterflow, etc., whereas sprinkler monitoring is just waterflow notification.
But, is occupant notification required for a Sprinkler Monitoring System?
Furthermore, do horn/strobes need to have a secondary power supply, like Fire Alarm System components do?
Is a smoke detector required above the panel/radio/dialer?
I know it depends on the local AHJ, but I'm looking for some guidance here... I am the local AHJ.
Thanks for your input!
