English abstract:
Surveillance systems are of increasing importance for modern buildings. Still, most of the existing video surveillance systems are based on analog technologies and human operators. This paper proposes a concept to integrate smart cameras into KNX based building automation systems. Once integrated, such cameras will be able to autonomously detect different kinds of events and perform appropriate actions. At first, typical application scenarios of surveillance systems are presented. Based on these scenarios, basic communication models for this purpose are discussed. Finally, necessary Functional Blocks and appropriate Datapoint Types are introduced. The resulting interworking is demonstrated by a proof-of-concept implementation.
