It would be better to put it in a room for sure, but I've seen worse. We have some older buildings were sprinkler risers/flow points are in peoples unit! Even if someone tampers with it, that valve should be electrically supervised, so if someone even moves it an inch or two it will send a trouble to the fire panel (supervisory in newer panels).

I honestly wouldn't mind living in an apartment that has a sprinkler riser/flow point in it.

Ok. So now the fabric horribly covering the riser has came down a little bit and now its kind of strange because they have a pressure valve like the ones on water heaters. And it's conduit is broken off and the conduit leading to the flow switch is just a wire hanging for dear life. :?
