Due to the development and proliferation of information and communication technologies (ICTs), people’s daily lives are indispensably relied on these tools. The blurring boundaries between ICTs and human lives have increasingly made traditional ways of living changed and spaces and buildings within most of metropolitans have gradually equipped with ICTs to cope with the underlying trend. Based on concepts of safety, energy conservation, convenience, and comfort, intelligent buildings’ designs have gradually become the main stream of the present and future architectures.layers participated in traditional design processes for the security and surveillance systems for intelligent buildings, such as products providers (such as construction companies) or project design teams (such as system integrators) mainly based on their past experience or “expected” requirements of users to design these systems. And the previous studies related to security and surveillance systems were focused attention on the state-of-the-art technologies. Although the traditional aspects for security and surveillance systems design are feasible, it does leave plenty rooms for improvement in terms of practicality and comprehensiveness.s a result, the aim of this research is attempting to identify the requirements of end-users and suggest a more practical and pragmatic security and surveillance system design by approaching the issue from the perspective of the direct and indirect users and beneficiaries of the systems. Through quantitative case studies and qualitative in-depth interviews, this research conducted series of survey and research. The first step was to realize the differences between end-users (direct and indirect users of security and surveillance systems) and experts (construction companies and system integrators) through questionnaire survey. Then, qualitative in-depth interviews of five main system integrators based in Taiwan were conducted to understand technological feasibility. Based on the eight dimensions obtained from end-users and expert’s survey, a new set of user requirements and functional specifications for an improved security and surveillance system has then been designed, developed, and tested through different scenario simulations.here is a hope that this improved security and surveillance system will provide a practical and integrated solution to fulfill the most important end-user needs. Additionally, this will hopefully act as a benchmark for future improvements in the security and surveillance products, and provide a better and safer intelligent building design for the future.
