The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) has published a ‘Code of Practice for Connected Systems Integration in Buildings’. Available this month, the report outlines the latest standards and offers guidance for home technology professionals and engineers, in order to stay up-to-date with constantly evolving building systems. 

Also known as ‘IET Standards TC4.1 Connected Systems Integration’ or ‘IET PSSI001P’, the publication has been developed to promote good practice in the specification, design and integration of connected systems in buildings.

The document outlines the importance of a robust planning process. The document explores how to improve connectivity, communications networking and connected systems integration for user access in residential and commercial buildings.

CEDIA Education and Standards Committee members Peter Aylett and Krystian Zajac contributed to the reprot, providing the IET with recommendations on layout of cable routes, equipment space and ventilation, as well as recomendations on network bandwidth and power distribution.

"This is one of the most significant and credible published documents for our industry to date,” says Peter Aylett. “As connected systems in buildings continue to evolve, they are becoming highly complex and interconnected. In addition, system compatibility and configuration issues can present challenges to successful integration and operation. This document has been published to help all stakeholders in the construction industry appreciate best practice to overcome built environment, integration and technical installation issues, ensuring the best end user experiences.”

Krystian Zajac adds: “Covering all the main areas related to connected buildings - from AV, through lighting, HVAC to power and thermal management – this code of practice is comprehensive, relevant and informative. Without doubt, it is a must have reference for all professionals within the home technology industry.”  

The full documentation can be purchased at www.theiet.org for £60 or £39 for IET Standard members. CEDIA members are entitled to receive a 25 per cent discount code off all IET Standards and can receive the code by visiting cedia.co.uk/standards.
