Notes how electronic systems can help improve working and living environments by reducing energy consumption,  and particularly by improving security and access control. Notes the introduction of addressable detectors that identify the precise source of a fire alarm. Other sensors are used to control lift and elevator safety. Concludes that these controls will be integrated into the next generation of building services to enable them to interact with each other.
