Try an ordinary CO2 fire extinguisher. That is the preferred method for shutting down a runaway diesel, also without leaving any residue.

I have reached out to the company to get more information.

As a secondary option, there are systems like BlazeCut that are affordable and easy to install.

I planned to make a spray bar in the engine bay and hook up to a fire extinguisher. Most fires I see happen there especially in coaches. Make sure to kill the fridge pilot and dont let the ole lady cook going down the road and you should be ok☺

Is your z wave controller rated for life safety?
It is not?
Than why would you even consider it for a life safety system?
