Good. That was the sole reason for that choice of words. Now I'm smiling, too.
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.

In NY residential work, low voltage never gets a look from inspectors (except in so far as electrical inspectors will want to see separation from low voltage.) So, forgive my ignorance here, but I am not clear what authority has jurisdiction when it comes to inspecting low voltage in a commercial environment?

The same is true in Canada. There are sections in the CEC (Canadian Electrical Code) pertaining to class 2 (Low Voltage) wiring but it is not part of the inspection process. There are no licensing requirements to be a low voltage installer or security installer and this is why we see a bunch of $h!t installations. We need to know building code and abide by them (where you can/can't drill, fire block between floors/walls) and ministry of labour rules (hard hats, steel toe footwear, harnesses/tie offs, etc.) but are not regulated by any inspections, permits, licenses. This goes for Residential and Commercial projects.
