This useful guide will help the security professional appreciate the wide range of sophisticated electronic security functional components now available, as well as the way these components interconnect. Early chapters examine usability, price, specifications, and other operational details of electronic components such as badges, biometrics, fire systems, CCTV, and intercoms. Later chapters discuss the electronic security system as a whole covering topics such as integrating electronic functions, component philosophy, building automation, possible long-term issues, and the culture within a corporation. The book uses a corporate environment as its example; however, the basic issues are applicable to virtually any environment.
The information within this book draws upon the valuable insight of the author who has over 35 years of experience in electrical engineering and electronic security systems design. Electronic Security Systems
is not meant to be an engineering text, but compacted to help guide the security professional in selecting the best available system for a company's needs.
