In all existing residential buildings of more than five stories and in all residential buildings of more than four stories which are constructed after the effective date of this chapter (Ordinance 84-116, passed May 21, 1984), smoke detectors in all areas other than individual dwelling units shall be connected to an annunciator panel, and such panel shall provide an indication of the floor on which the smoke detector was activated. The activation of any smoke detector connected to the annunciator panel shall cause the sounding of alarm devices on each floor simultaneously.
