This session describes technical advances and challenges for commissioning modern security systems, and how they are evolving. Today’s systems promise wireless communications, visual recognition and audio acuity sensed by a variety of triggers. To get a signal and react to it, how much/what kind of “noise” information is necessary and how much is tolerable? How do we plan for security and develop owners’ project requirements (OPRs) that result in accurate design and construction specifications for the safety of building occupants?

Learning objectives:

  1. Identify security system types and industry references.
  2. Describe security system requirements.
  3. Categorize security goals and risks.
  4. Align commissioning to security system delivery.
