A fire protection system consists of a detector type indicating the presence of a fire hazard, a hazard warning type, and system control to activate the fire prevention or fire mitigation system.
The fire protection system is activated as follows:
A hazard is identified by the detector either by the detection of smoke, heat increase, or fire by sprinkler. Then the horn with loudspeakers, strobe lights, or mass notification is triggered to warn people in the building to evacuate the premises. Third, system controls such as relays for elevators, ventilation systems, door openers, and others are activated to continue the alarm to residents and to protect the integrity of the building.
A heat detector and a smoke detector are devices that warn residents of a building of the presence of a fire. A smoke detector alerts residents to the presence of smoke. Smoke detectors can be used as the sole detector of a fire in a residence.
On the other hand, a heat detector will activate when the temperature in a room reaches an abnormally high temperature. This detector is functional without a power supply. Heat detectors are complementary to smoke detectors and cannot be used as the only detectors in a building.
A sprinkler is a fire protection device. It is triggered when an abnormal temperature is reached due to the heat of the fire. Fire alarm systems with sprinklers not only notify residents of the presence of a fire but participate in extinguishing them.

If your building was built after 2000, you must comply with the 2005 Building Code. The requirements for the need to have a fire alarm system are the same as the 1995 Building Code, except for item 2. d. of section 18.104.22.168. The change is as follows:
