"As far as technical material is concerned, this is the smallest, most jam-packed book put out for a long time...Throw this midget text-book in your tool kit for quick reference for data, essential information, and techniques with a practical bent on things like CCTV, intruder alarms, access control, fire alarms, lighting, nursecall systems and remote sensing." --Security Australia
