CEC Question

I realize this is an NEC forum, but hopefully a Canadian electrician can chime in. An ESA inspector is telling me the following:

- a low voltage automation keypad connected to a local area network with a network cable is subject to an electrical permit and inspection, and the wiring and installation has to be done by a licenced electrical contractor IF that device can control any part of the electrical system in a house; in this case lighting.

So in the case of a house with lighting control, all devices that can control the lights (think keypads, phones, computers, tablets) have to be installed by an electrical contractor, and the network cabling must be inspected.

I asked for a written code citation but have yet to receive one, but orally I was told it was in section 16-100 or 16-200, he wasn't sure.
