A sprinkler system is a fire-extinguishing system that releases water from overhead pipes through nozzles (sprinklers) opened automatically by a rise in temperature. But many laymen believed that a fire sprinkler system can also be activated by smoke.
Fire sprinkler systems are actually heat activated, one sprinkler head at a time, and most fires usually require only one or two sprinklers to be extinguished. A sprinkler system does not trigger all off at once.
