A fire alarm system typically consists of several components that work together to detect and alert people to the presence of a fire.

When a smoke detector senses smoke, it sends a signal to the control panel. The control panel then processes the signal and activates the alarm sounders if it determines that a fire is present. The alarm sounders will then make loud noise to alert people in the building to evacuate.
