Ideal world, you have one of these https://www.cef.co.uk/catalogue/products/45781-fire-alarm-switch taken from DB1 (which would normally be in a locked mains room)

Wire to your keyswitch/isolation point adjacent (bush/coupled) to controls all with enhanced cable.

Life isn't always ideal and you have a shed. It's own suitable circuit from your shed board would do.

If your aspiring perfection...

As above plastic mountings, metal hospital saddles would do.

Conduit most likely over filled (45% cable/55% space max.)

Smoke detector too close to light fitting.

MCP missing female end.

Fire alarm panel is missing...

Alarmsense - proper detection you can actually replace with the sticks and are way more reliable

I don't mind the Sigma or there's C-Tec if you like your plastic.

Alarmsense is Apollo they have two wire gear that others make controls for.

Sag-wire you have conversion bases and use conventional gear.
