    Is this still permitted in new buildings?

    I found a lot of these types of installations in NYC when I worked there. Years ago, when Acme was the big FA manufacturer they came up with a lot of these "made in your garage" type pieces of equipment. We've come a long way since then.

      If it's considered auxiliary signaling or notification and it can't negatively affect the panel operation, it would be permitted IMO. The AHJ's reaction may be to red-flag it, but unless he/she can make the case that it would impair the operation of the panel or occupant notification, you could make a good case that it can stay. Something like that, on the other hand, is likely being required by the AHJ.

        Auxiliary- but can't be main- correct?

          AND, from what I remember it has to be approved by the Board of Standards and Appeals.
