    Does anyone have any experience with installing, use
    & maintenance of Sound Masking Systems ?

    As I understand the term "Sound Masking", it is far
    different than just White Noise Systems.......The Sound
    Masking Systems [ SMS ] are more sophisticated,
    ...require a professionally designed layout, ...connects
    to the facility servers and have proprietary software.


    I have been tasked to research these systems and
    present my findings & recommendations.

    Here is one Link to an SMS company: https://cambridgesound.com/

    Thanks for any input !

    ...continuing with the OP......As I understand the SMS,
    they would need to be designed something similar to
    a fire sprinkler piping layout, and I am guessing that
    whoever installs it, would have their own proprietary
    software as well.

    The client is desiring to get away from proprietary
    systems, ...if possible.......They already have enough
    headaches & excessive costs with their HVAC Energy
    Management Systems ( EMS ) & fire protections systems.

    Well if there are not to many players in the field, you may just run into no systems that are not proprietary.

    I guess shop around till you find one.
