Integrated Security Systems Design, 2nd Edition, is recognized as the industry-leading book on the subject of security systems design. It explains how to design a fully integrated security system that ties together numerous subsystems into one complete, highly coordinated, and highly functional system. With a flexible and scalable enterprise-level system, security decision makers can make better informed decisions when incidents occur and improve their operational efficiencies in ways never before possible. The revised edition covers why designing an integrated security system is essential and how to lead the project to success. With new and expanded coverage of network architecture, physical security information management (PSIM) systems, camera technologies, and integration with the Business Information Management Network, Integrated Security Systems Design, 2nd Edition, shows how to improve a security program's overall effectiveness while avoiding pitfalls and potential lawsuits.
- Guides the reader through the strategic, technical, and tactical aspects of the design process for a complete understanding of integrated digital security system design.
- Covers the fundamentals as well as special design considerations such as radio frequency systems and interfacing with legacy systems or emerging technologies.
- Demonstrates how to maximize safety while reducing liability and operating costs.
