English term or phrase: latching
Normally when a smoke detector or call-point is operated the fire alarm system must start sounding the alarms and continue to sound them until somebody intervenes to stop them sounding. In other words the alarms must be manually silenced -- the various regulations do not allow the alarms to silence automatically. This type of alarm is therefore a latching alarm because once the fire is detected the system latches into the alarm state until human intervention cancels the alarm.
