Although I like the idea of a home fire sprinkler system, I am not sure how much I would trust it when there is not a fire.

I guess I do not really understand how they work.

I have had quite a few false smoke alarms and burgled alarms. That is annoying enough.

But if a sprinkler system was activated and a false alarm, the damages would be pretty bad.

So, what are the chances of a false alarm and the sprinklers going off?
