My AHJ states that it is not in compliance to combine a fire alarm and burglar alarm in the same control panel in Nassau County NY. They said this was listed in NFPA72. May I please ask if anyone knows under what section & year this code is written?
Will have to look,
As long as the panel it self is listed for both fire and burglar, it is legal.
Radionics use to be
Maybe Honeywell took radionics over??
Will give you two sections from the 2013 NFPA 72
10.3.1 says it has to be listed for the use, either fire alarm, or fire and burglar, or other uses.
So the panel has to carry that listing first to even be considered.
23.8.4 Combination, section says you can use a panel for other functions
look at A.188.8.131.52 for examples.
back to listing 23.8.4..3
The only other thing I would say, is maybe that AHJ, even though 72 says you can do it, they may have something adopted that says you cannot do it.
If they keep pushing, ask them to show you where you cannot do it, either in 72 or by adopted law.
