                                Executive Summary
This report discusses commissioning of security systems and provides a step-wise commissioning process
and commissioning forms for use by drinking water utilities. Commissioning is the testing of both new
and upgraded systems to verify that the operation and performance meet contract document requirements.
Increasingly, water utilities are installing sophisticated security systems at their facilities, yet utility
management often finds that these systems do not operate at the expected level of performance. Even
worse, some security systems are abandoned because the systems have never worked as the owner
intended. Proper commissioning of equipment ensures that installed security systems will operate at the
expected level of performance and decreases the likelihood that this equipment will be abandoned soon
after installation.

The objectives of commissioning are to ensure  security systems perform as designed, meet the owner's
needs, and minimize nuisance alarms that can reduce operator confidence in the systems. Benefits of
commissioning include increased operator and management confidence in the security systems, validated
system documentation, and reinforced owner training. Additional benefits include increased system
effectiveness and improved system maintenance by having a baseline of expected system performance.
Failure to adequately commission a security system can result in the delay of system startup, owner
dissatisfaction, increased maintenance, professional liability claims, warranty issues, and placing utility
assets at risk.

The commissioning process begins with a plan that establishes and identifies the major elements of
commissioning: systems and components to be commissioned, participants in commissioning, and
participant roles. Commissioning forms are developed and incorporated into the contract documents.
Pre-startup testing ensures that the system equipment is ready to be started, and functional testing
provides the formal commissioning of the system (ensuring correct system operation and performance).
Retesting occurs when a system does not pass functional testing, after a repair to a system, or on a
periodic basis. After completion of functional testing and any re-tests of failed functional tests, a testing
report, along with the system operation and maintenance manuals, is submitted to the owner.  The owner
then assumes responsibility for operating and maintaining the system, including retesting.

This report includes  eight example forms for commissioning security equipment, including access-
controlled doors, perimeter detection systems, camera systems, and video recording systems.  The forms
can be edited to meet individual owner needs and included in contract documents.

                            Section 1.0:   Introduction

An increasing number of water utilities are installing sophisticated security systems at their facilities, yet
utility management often finds that these systems do not operate at a level of performance that is
expected. Even worse, some security systems are abandoned because the systems have never worked as
the owner intended.  Proper commissioning of equipment ensures that installed security systems will
operate at an expected level of performance and decreases the likelihood that this equipment will be
abandoned soon after installation. Properly designed and maintained security systems are a vital
component of protective security programs for drinking water utilities, as stated in the American Water
Works Association (AWWA) standard ANSI/A WWA G430-09: Security Practices for Operation and
Management, 2009.

Commissioning is the testing of systems to verify that the operation  and performance of both new and
upgraded systems meet  contract document requirements. A system consists of equipment, and equipment
consists of components. Commissioning a system begins with commissioning components, followed by
commissioning equipment, and then commissioning the entire system.

Federal and state agencies have not developed or adopted commissioning standards for security systems.
The Building Commissioning Association (BCA), an industry trade  group, develops standard
commissioning documents. The documents consist of commonly used administrative and technical
forms, training templates, and checklists1. BCA  has yet to develop security system commissioning
documents, but may do  so in the future.   The authors of this report  are not aware of other trade groups
that have developed  commissioning documents, but new and existing trade groups  could develop these
documents in the future. This report documents a commissioning process and provides forms developed
by the  authors based on professional experience in the commissioning of security systems on numerous
projects.  Commissioning of data management and communication systems is not addressed.

1.1    Commissioning Objectives

Commissioning objectives include:

      Perform as  Designed.  The systems and equipment should perform in accordance with the
       contract documents (i.e., drawings and specifications).  The  contract documents may include a
       commissioning  or functional test form that contains a checklist for the commissioning process.
       This form provides documentation that the system is installed in accordance with the system
       specifications and indicates whether the standard of workmanship is acceptable. (Examples are
       included in the appendix of this report.)

      Meet Owners'  Needs.  The systems should perform in accordance with owners' needs. The
       owner requirements must be clearly stated in the contract documents.  Commissioning involves
       owners and their end users at the onset of the project to help identify expectations.
      Minimize Nuisance Alarms.  Nuisance  alarms are caused by an external source such as animals,
       wind, rain, etc, whereas a false alarm is generated solely by  the internal electronic elements of a
       sensor, such as a faulty circuit. The frequency of nuisance alarms should be low. Recurring
       nuisance alarms lead to a reduction in operator confidence in the system. Operators may start
       ignoring alarms that they perceive as nuisance alarms without thoroughly investigating the
       alarms. Recurring nuisance alarms can also unnecessarily burden emergency response services.
1 For closed-circuit television (CCTV), BCA has developed a Security CCTVSystem Construction Checklist (BCA,
2006) to verify that a CCTV system is ready for commissioning, but has yet to develop a CCTV system
commissioning document.

1.2    Benefits of Commissioning

Utility managers are increasingly commissioning equipment systems and buildings to verify that the
system has been installed as designed and to improve the likelihood that the system equipment will
maintain a specified level of performance throughout its life.  Benefits of commissioning new systems
include:

      Increased Confidence and Satisfaction. Utility operators and management gain confidence in
       the system by knowing proper system operation and that the system is functioning properly
       through systematic testing. Performance or achieving lifecycle and maintenance requirements can
       result in owner satisfaction.

      Validated System Documentation. Contract documents require the completion of
       commissioning forms that provide complete and accurate documentation of each system.

      Improved System Maintenance. Commissioning establishes a baseline of expected system
       performance for comparison purposes when maintaining the system. Operators and maintenance
       staff (the "end users") learn how the system is expected to operate through the commissioning
       process.

      Reinforced Owner Training.  Owner participation in startup commissioning reinforces the
       system training that is typically required in the contract documents. The owner also becomes
       more familiar with expected system performance and how to troubleshoot aspects of the system.
       Owner participation promotes a more effective and sustainable security culture.

      Increased System Effectiveness.  Commissioning identifies and tests as many single points of
       failure as possible, thereby improving system effectiveness before the system becomes
       operational. Commissioning avoids delays in system startup by eliminating unexpected issues or
       system faults, which could require the utility to hire or assign security guards, or even cease
       operations, until the security system is online.

      Less Risk. Commissioning reduces the likelihood a faulty or ineffective security system will
       place staff and key utility assets at potential health and safety risks that could be caused by theft,
       vandalism or terrorist attack. A faulty system could put the utility at financial risk to professional
       liability claims.

      Fewer Warranty Claims.  Continual callbacks with the vendor to solve system problems and
       settle warranty claims may arise when working with a noncommissioned system. The start date of
       a warranty is vague without commissioning. The contract documents should state that the
       manufacturer's warranty starts after successful commissioning. Without commissioning, a
       manufacturer could claim that the warranty began upon delivery of the equipment which can
       occur months before the system begins operation.

               Section 2.0:   The Commissioning  Process
The commissioning process consists of the following steps:

    1.  Specify overall plan and process
    2.  Identify systems, equipment, and components
    3.  Develop functional test procedures
    4.  Incorporate forms and checklists into contract documents
    5.  Install equipment
    6.  Perform pre-startup tests
    7.  Perform functional tests
    8.  Retest as necessary
    9.  Turn over

A plan is essential to commissioning a system as the plan establishes and identifies the major elements of
commissioning: systems and components to be commissioned, participants in commissioning, and
participant roles.  Commissioning forms are developed and incorporated into the contract documents.
Pre-start-up testing ensures that the system equipment is ready to be started, and functional testing
provides the formal commissioning of the system (ensuring correct system operation and performance).
Retesting occurs when a system does not pass functional testing, after a repair to a system, or on a
periodic basis. After completion  of functional testing and any re-tests of failed functional tests, a testing
report along with the system operation and maintenance manuals are submitted to the owner. The owner
then assumes responsibility for operating and maintaining the system, including retesting.

2.1    Step 1:  Specify Overall Plan and Processes

A commissioning team typically consists of representatives of the contractor, owner, engineer, and end
user. The team meets to decide on team member roles and responsibilities, and the associated tasks for all
project phases and activities. Review  and acceptance procedures, documentation requirements, and the
development and approval of related commissioning checklists and forms are also decided by the team.
The contractor is often not selected until after the preparation of contract documents. In these instances,
the contractor joins the commissioning team  once the contract is awarded.

2.2    Step 2:  Identify Systems, Equipment, and Components

The commissioning team develops a list of all of the system elements to be commissioned. This list
provides a complete and thorough investigation of the security system's components and equipment.

2.3    Step 3:  Develop Functional Test Procedures

The functional tests are the main elements of commissioning. The commissioning team develops
functional test forms and checklists for the equipment inspections or component tests that verify proper
installation and performance (e.g., camera positioning, sensor calibration, etc.). Forms are discussed in
more depth in Section 3.  The  completed forms and checklists should be reviewed by the engineer or
owner's representative prior to approval of the equipment or  system for initial operation.

2.4    Step 4:  Incorporate Forms and Checklists into Contract Documents

The forms, checklists, and procedures to be used during commissioning are included in the contract
documents (i.e., specifications and drawings).
                                              4

-------
2.5     Step 5: Install Equipment

Installation of the equipment is expected to meet or exceed all applicable federal, state, and local
requirements. Installation is also expected to conform to codes (e.g., National Electrical Code, National
Fire Protection Association) and ordinances of authorities that have jurisdiction in accordance with the
contract documents. Equipment is installed in accordance with the manufacturers' published
recommendations.

2.6     Step 6: Perform  Pre-startup Tests

Pre-startup tests are the initial testing and procedures that occur in advance of the formal functional
testing.  The contractor performs the pre-startup tests to verify the equipment is powered, calibrated,
operational, and ready for functional testing. Pre-startup tests can include verifying initial settings such as
camera  focus, system communication, video recording settings, system calibration, and tuning. During
this stage, the contractor may find faults in the installation, hardware, or software settings, which must be
corrected prior to functional testing.  Even common components such as video cameras will benefit from
a quick  pre-startup bench test prior to installation to ensure correct focus, field  of view, and backlight
compensation settings. Pre-startup testing allows components damaged in shipment to be replaced and
systems that require calibration or adjustment to be more efficiently serviced. The owner and engineer
are typically not present during pre-startup tests.

2.7     Step 7: Perform  Functional Tests

Functional testing is the formal testing of the entire security system under full operation. Successful
completion of functional testing commissions the system. The purpose of functional testing is to
thoroughly review  and document the equipment and installation to verify that functional and performance
requirements in the contract documents are met.  The functional performance test consists of individual
component testing  and progresses to the testing of entire systems  as an integrated security platform. The
system is operated  through all the modes of operation and under varying conditions, and each component
verified to be responding during the process is documented.

During functional testing, temporary modifications may be necessary as the test proceeds. The specific
tests required and the order  of tests will vary depending on the type and size of systems, number of
systems, sequence  of installation, and relationship with the building elements (e.g., heating, ventilation,
and air conditioning; building doors). Testing of systems may occur in stages depending on the progress
of work or as proposed by the contractor.  For example, an internet connection may not be available until
after completion of building construction.  Commissioning of portions of the system can occur prior to the
internet connection, but the  portions that require an interconnect connection are commissioned at a later
date. The commissioning team uses the functional test forms developed in Step 3  and contained with the
contract documents to coordinate and document the testing. The tests are typically performed by the
installing contractor or vendor, and witnessed by the engineer and owner's representative.

2.8     Step 8: Retest as Necessary

Retesting may occur for three separate reasons:  First, retesting may be necessary for systems that do not
pass the functional test.  Second, re-testing may occur after repairs are made to a system to reconfirm
system performance. Third, periodic retesting of commissioned systems is recommended to  ensure that
system performance continues to  meet contract document requirements and system performance is
satisfactory. Periodic retesting occurs on a regular basis and is typically performed semi-annually or
annually.  Periodic retests incorporate monitoring, review, and analysis of system performance data
provided by the users as well as low-level  functional testing of the system by the utility. Retesting after
repairs or on a periodic basis is most effective for systems that have been properly commissioned and
have an established baseline performance measurement from the initial commissioning process (i.e., when
                                               5

-------
the systems are fine tuned and operating as efficiently as possible). Retesting is an essential element in
security system maintenance and should be incorporated within the initial planning of the commissioning
program. A schedule of required periodic testing could be a contract deliverable for the owner. The
schedule could specify retesting by component, equipment, or system wide.

2.9    Step 9:  Turn Over

The installing contractor prepares a functional performance test report covering all measured data, data
sheets, and a comprehensive summary describing system operation at the time of the functional
performance tests.  The test report is submitted along with system operation and maintenance manuals to
the owner. The owner accepts responsibility for operating and maintaining the security system.

-------

-------
                   Section  3.0:   Commissioning Forms
During the commissioning process, the commissioning team develops functional testing forms to verify
that the test results and system performance are consistent with the criteria established in the contract
documents. These forms consist of project-specific tests and checklists.

3.1    Functional Test Forms

Several example security functional test forms are provided in Appendix A. These forms are provided to
point out some of the more critical testing elements that are important when commissioning security
systems.

3.1.1     A ccess Control Systems
Access control systems electronically control entry into buildings or facilities. These systems consist of
door readers, access badges, computer servers, wiring, and communication protocols for allowing or
denying entry to areas within a facility based on predetermined employee authorizations. The functional
test form included for commissioning access control systems is the Access-controlled Door Example
Form. This form can be found in Appendix A. 1.

3.1.2     Intrusion Detection Systems
Intrusion detection systems provide a means for detecting unauthorized entry within a protected area by
monitoring doors, hatches, fences, and perimeter boundaries. The functional test forms for
commissioning intrusion detection systems include the Intrusion System Example Form and Perimeter-
Detection System Example Form and can be found in Appendix A.2 and A.3.

3.1.3     Video  Surveillance Systems
A video surveillance system consists of video cameras transmitting a signal to a monitoring station or
recording device. There are several elements that can make up the video system, including cameras,
digital or network recording systems, and system software. The functional test forms for commissioning
video surveillance  systems include the CCTV Fixed Position Camera, Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) Camera,
Digital Video Recorder (DVR), Network Video Recorder (NVR),  and Security Client Workstation
Software Example Forms.  These example forms can be found in Appendix A.4  through A.7.

3.2    Other Commissioning Forms

The following types of commissioning forms may be useful in addition to the included functional testing
forms:

       Progress Check Forms. These forms track the progress of systems and equipment from submittal
       phase through installation, pre-startup testing, functional testing, and retesting.

       Pre-Startup Testing Check Forms. These forms document that the systems and equipment are
       powered, calibrated, operational, and ready for functional tests.
