What is claimed is:

1. A system for locating a detection system within a predetermined area comprising:

a fiber optic harness defining at least one node in communication with the

predetermined area, wherein light is received at the at least one node;

at least one emitter arranged in communication with the at least one node; and a control system operably coupled to the at least one emitter and the at least one node to determine a physical location of the at least one node relative to the predetermined area.

2. The system of claim 1, wherein the at least one emitter comprises a plurality of emitters distributed throughout the predetermined area.

3. The system of claim 2, wherein the control system uses triangulation of the plurality of emitters to determine the physical location to the at least one node relative to the predetermined area.

4. The system of claim 1, wherein the at least one emitter is movable relative to the predetermined area.

5. The system of claim 4, wherein the at least one emitter is rotatable about an axis.

6. The system of claim 4, wherein the at least one emitter is movable relative to the predetermined area to a position associated with the at least one node.

7. The system of claim 1, wherein the physical location of the at least one relative to the predetermined area is determined in response to communication between the at least one node and the at least one emitter.

8. The system of claim 1, wherein the at least one node comprises a plurality of nodes arranged at multiple physical locations within the predetermined area.

9. The system of claim 1, wherein a sensitivity of the at least one node is adjustable to reduce an occurrence of false alarms detected by the at least one node.

10. A method of determining a physical location of at least one node of a detection system relative to a predetermined area comprising:

providing a signal from at least one emitter to the at least one node;

receiving the signal from the at least one emitter at the at least one node; and determining the physical location of the at least one node in response to the signal received at the at least one node.

11. The method of claim 10, further comprising moving the at least one emitter to a position directly adjacent the at least one node.

12. The method of claim 10, wherein the at least one emitter is positioned directly adjacent the at least one node when the signal is provided from the at least one emitter to the at least one node.

13. The method of claim 10, further comprising moving the at least one emitter from a first position to a second, known position within the predetermined area such that a first signal is received from the emitter at the at least one node when the emitter is at the first position and a second signal is received from the emitter at the at least one node when the emitter is at the second position.

14. The method of claim 13, wherein moving the at least one emitter to a second position comprises rotating the at least one emitter to a desired angle relative to the at least one node.

15. The method of claim 10, wherein determining the physical location of the at least one node occurs in response to the signal received at the at least one node.

16. A detection system comprising:

a fiber optic harness comprising a plurality of nodes distributed throughout a predetermined area, wherein light is transmitted from each of the plurality of nodes and scattered light is received at each of the plurality of nodes;

a control system operably coupled to the fiber optic harness for receiving the scattered light from each of the plurality of nodes, wherein the control system:

analyzes the scattered light to determine a condition at each of the plurality of nodes; and

controls a sensitivity of each of the plurality of nodes.

17. The system of claim 16, wherein the predetermined area further comprises a plurality of risk regions, and within the control system each of the plurality of nodes is associated with one of the plurality of risk regions.

18. The system of claim 17, wherein the control system determines the plurality of risk regions in response to at least one of a risk of occurrence of a condition, traffic flow within the region, assets located within the region, environmental nuisances, and access to an environment within the region.

19. The system of claim 17, wherein the sensitivity of each node is controlled in response to the risk region associated with the node.

20. The system of claim 16, wherein the control system controls the sensitivity of each of the plurality of nodes by adjusting one or more parameters associated with an algorithm run by the control system.

21. The system of claim 20, wherein the one or more parameters comprises one or more of a time of day, a day of week, a day of month, and a day of year.

22. The system of claim 20, wherein the one or more parameters comprises a condition detected at another node of the plurality of nodes.

23. The system of claim 16, wherein the control system detects an operational status of at least one of the plurality of nodes and in response controls the sensitivity of at least one of the plurality of nodes.

24. The system of claim 23, wherein the control system controls the sensitivity of each of the plurality of nodes in response to the detected operational status.

25. A detection system comprising:

a fiber optic cable for transmitting light, the at least one fiber optic cable defining a node;

a control system operably coupled to the fiber optic cable such that scattered light associated with the node is transmitted to the control system, the control system operable to determine at least one of a presence and magnitude of one or more conditions at the node; and an interactive display arranged in communication with the control system and operable to receive at least one input, the interactive display being operable to display a status of a predetermined area in response to information provided by at least one of the control system and the at least one input.

26. The detection system of claim 25, wherein the interactive display is operable to display a map of the predetermined area.

27. The detection system of claim 26, wherein the interactive display is further operable to display a physical location of the node of the control system within the predetermined area.
