Automatic door opener (ADO) for domestic flat - connect to fire alarm or not?

I live as owner occupier (long leaseholder) in a managed block of flats. The block has a communal fire alarm system with sounders in the flats and the communal areas. I want to fit an ADO to my flat entrance door (which is a fire door) for disability purposes. (I am wheelchair dependent for my mobility). The ADO installation includes a 48hr battery back up in case of mains power failure.

Is it a requirement that the ADO is connected to the communal fire alarm system?

As I understand it, this would simply "convert" the door to normal manual operation when the fire alarm sounds.
