Hi Debbie,


I do not have any experience with these systems but what occurs to me is that the use of such a system may allow for inadvertent exceedance of building code maximum allowable quantities and/or NFPA density limits on various hazardous materials categories.   So, some code review, projection of hazard category quantities by control area would be prudent prior to committing to purchasing.


Hope this helps,
