hi there does anyone know if an arduino uno can communicate with fire alarm detectors using "Apollo” and “Hochiki protocols it would only be 7 addressable detectors

i know fire alarms use 24v dc and was wondering if i could use optocouplers to take a signal to the arduino and transmit?

thanks alot
 
this is the only information i can find

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATION

You will probably need to sign a NDA (none disclosure agreement) to get actual details of their serial protocol. Ask them they might release it to you.
