Meet your ESDA member: Changing the face of home security

August 2014 Associations

To be able to move around in your house or offices you are forced to deactivate your alarm system with your panic button as your only active alarm defence against an intruder. This makes you and your household vulnerable to being overpowered without being alerted in time.

ViewProtect has developed the Armed Bar (transparent burglar bar with integrated alarm sensor) that will give you a physical protection and permanent alarm protection at all your windows and doors.

This Smart Bar technology makes it possible to protect your premises with a 24/7 active alarm system in addition to having a transparent physical barrier. This technology also allows you to fully utilise your alarm system by having a permanent perimeter protection while moving around in your home. This allows you freedom to open and close and also clean the windows and bars. No more false alarms caused by accidental human errors, plants, insects, animals, etc.

The uniqueness of the ViewProtect Smart Bar technology is the fact that we have been able to combine two different security products i.e. alarm system and transparent physical barrier (polycarbonate), resulting in the development of an ultimate security product. The weakness of the one product is strengthened by the other products properties.

One of ViewProtect’s newest products is a transparent retractable security gate, ClearTrellis, which will also have the option to be connected to any alarm system. These transparent retractable security gates will also protect your property value by removing the prison-like appearance of metal gates.

ViewProtect products have been taken up in the international market and we have representation in six African countries, Romania, Caribbean Islands and Australia.
