ANSI/BICSI 007 Standards for Intelligent Buildings

ANSI/BICSI 007-2024, Information Communication Technology Design and Implementation Practices for Intelligent Buildings and Premises



Intelligence is Everywhere.

ANSI/BICSI 007-2024 continues to be the seminal standard for the design and implementation of ICT infrastructure necessary for all network enabled building systems, from traditional, smart, IoT, emerging and everything in between.

The 2024 edition is updated with guidance for both single-pair Ethernet and power over digital line (PoDL) and includes initial information regarding fault-managed power. Section 10 for AV systems also doubled in size, with a focus on audio and video conferencing. Other revisions include guidance for extended cabling ranges to devices, as well as device mounting and enclosures wireless systems or protocols which may need to be supported.

ANSI/BICSI 007 continues to be the resource for ICT connectivity, covering, but not limited to the following types of systems:

  • Building automation systems (BAS)
  • Building management systems (BMS)
  • Energy management systems (EMS)
  • Low voltage / PoE Lighting
  • Electronic security systems (ESS)
    • Video surveillance
    • Access control
    • Intrusion detection
    • Class N fire alarm
    • Emergency communication telephones
  • Intercom, paging, and mass notification
  • Sound masking
  • Digital signage and wayfinding
  • Assisted listening systems
  • Asset management (RFID)
  • Vertical transportation (e.g., elevators)
