Automated wildfire protection system

The Casa Grande Union High School InvenTeam is inventing an automatically activated firefighting device to prevent the spread of wildfires in indefensible neighborhoods. Homeowners benefit from this device by having it available for installation, this in turn means more homeowners have a higher chance of their houses being saved. The device is composed of a reservoir, compressed air tank, air pressure gauges, hoses, solar panels, spray nozzles, infrared sensor packages, pneumatic solenoid valves, and a proportioning chamber.
