Smoke detectors require manual testing and smoke to be put through. Even if catridges were used they would require replacing

Cabling requires fitting, breaks in cable require repairing. Devices need fitting, replacing, over desks etc

How does a robot remove a ceiling tile, go above the ceiling, navigate around plant equipment, test the devices, return the ceiling tile, reminder its pitch black above ceilings and 90% of sites have devices fitted but not where they say they are.
