Integration of Fire Suppression Panel with BMS

I have visited many server rooms where Automatic Fire Suppression is installed.  However hardly at any place they are integrated with BMS though BMS is present.  I am wondering what could be the reason?  Is it not required or it just a neglected segment?

In my opinion following things are important for any automatic fire suppression site.

  • Logging each and every event on the panel.
  • Connecting the panel to BMS using either RS485 modbus.

On another note, I find that almost all Server rooms having Fire Suppression arrangement use water leak detection.  Will people like to have integrated Fire Suppression+Water Leak panel which can be integrated with BMS?
