The article discusses developments in the Building Automation Control Network (BACnet) integration. In 2006, the BACnet Life-Safety and Security Working Group (LSS-WG) launched the Access Door object, the first of its physical-access-control extensions. In March 2007, more proposals from the LSS-WG were published. The LSS-WG was able to leverage work already done by the BACnet committee by building a physical-access-control application on the BACnet platform.
