WEBCAST: Fire and life safety: Integration: Building automation systems and fire/life safety
Integrating fire protection and fire alarm systems with building automation systems (BAS) can offer efficient and cost-effective operation. The design and installation of an integrated system must also be well-planned and coordinated, and the system must be properly maintained over its lifetime. The need for multidisciplinary coordination between the fire protection engineer and the mechanical and electrical engineers during design and construction are of key importance.
