Common White Asked: At what point and in what sort of buildings do fire sprinklers turn on?

In movies, they only come on when it propels suspense, but realistically when do they come on? When the fire alarm is pulled, actual fire is detected somehow, heavy smoke detected? Seems like it could be costly if it went off on a false alarm in an office building or something…

Also wondering this recently as I met a business owner who can’t quit smoking, so he smokes in the office. Their office is in a typical office building…

they should come on as soon as smoke is detected by the smoke detector or Sensor witch activates the water sprinklers that puts the fire out so i hope this helps thanks and god bless
