The article focuses on the significance of the Internet Protocol (IP) as the backbone for all building systems, security and video surveillance. The convergence of building control systems with security and surveillance systems is considered to be the next logical step in technology and systems integration. It is noted that IP nurtured the integration of various security subsystems which are easily measured. This allows fast and easy sharing of data and intelligence among systems.
