The concepts of Automated Inspection and Testing and Distance Monitoring are already in use in NFPA 72, National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code, for fire alarm systems but can they be applied to water based fire protection systems? NFPA 25, Standard for the Inspection, Testing, and Maintenance of Water-Based Fire Protection Systems, anticipated the use of this technology by adding a new section to chapter 4 in the 2017 edition titled Automated Inspection and Testing.
