Specifically, the aim of this paper is to arm the stakeholders of the projects with relevant information to make an informed decision regarding the type of solution to employ: the difference in cost, features, benefits and technological risk.
In any new project the architect, builder, developer, electrical engineer, integrator and other consultants are faced with a myriad of decisions relating to the specification, installation and integration of electrical, security, audio visual and communications systems. This document is aimed at that audience with the objective of ensuring they understand the changes in technology, the options that are available and the cost differences.
