A fire alarm system is a network of devices that uses visual and audio signals – such as strobe lighting, voice evacuation, and mass notification – to alert people of a possible fire, smoke, or carbon monoxide emergency. It is the first line of defense and is what alerts you and your system that there is a fire. Fire alarm systems will often be based on the detection of smoke, heat, or carbon monoxide. A fire alarm system also includes an emergency communication system that alerts your local fire department of the emergency.
