Integration of Security Systems

Matt Golueke July 13, 2017 23:01 PM


System integration is intended to simplify user operation, especially during an emergency.

While the goal is user simplicity, integration of the systems can be quite complex. Seeking advice from trusted advisers is critical. Performing a thorough project site survey is a great place to get started. In this video, Steve Pennington and Nick Hoyt discuss key concepts related to system integration.

  • Conducting a system site survey
  • Systems types typically integrated together
  • Contact closure integration
  • Software based integration
  • System functionality & setting user/owner expectations
  • Use of static & dynamic site maps & diagrams versus device trees
  • PSIM management software
  • Primary versus secondary systems
  • Licensing, programming, & hardware cost considerations
  • Importance of working with trusted advisors
