BICSI North Central Region Director Jerry Bowman today said the time is ripe for a manual that focuses solely on electronic safety and security design issues.

Last week, the organization released the first edition of the Electronic Safety and Security Design Reference Manual (ESSDRM), a document that contains the relevant background information necessary to plan, design and implement safety and security design projects.

“The need for this manual was driven by the reality of the marketplace,” said Bowman. “The fastest growing segment of low voltage systems that is integrating into the enterprise network is security.

“This is probably the most requested value-add that you can bring to a basic structured cabling design.”

Topics covered include legal aspects of security design, ESS design, access control systems, CCTV and surveillance, and fire detection and alarm.
