Radio Data Communications (RDC) and TPA Distributors held a launch event at the Randpark Golf Club on 12 April 2018, to announce their partnership and their collaboration with Sentian Lifestyle Automation.
The industry has grown significantly over the years, and Radio Data Communications and TPA Security Distributors saw the benefits of working together to distribute their products, and to get new customers on board by introducing them to the Sentian Lifestyle Automation System, which can be used in conjunction with RDC’s and TPA’s equipment.
The event consisted of product overviews and new product demonstrations from each company, and insights from stalwarts in the industry like John Rogers, Eamon Nel, Terry van Zyl and Brent Andreka, who have many years of experience in the security industry.
Terry van Zyl from RDC highlighted how the industry has changed over the years as demand for security has increased and technology has improved communication. Innovative technology and improved systems has given more power to the people to be able to control their environment and to be able to verify each event/activation and guide their armed response so that the amount of false alarms is decreased.
According to Van Zyl, “the future is here” with information and connectivity via products like Sentian Home Automation. Joint partnerships like this helps bring the future to the customer and helps put the customer in the driving seat. As the famous Aristotle saying goes: “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts”.
RDC showcased its new SMX weatherproof pack, designed for outdoor applications like farm irrigation and generator control, and the SMX Din Rail Pack designed to expand functionality for outdoor electrical connection applications.
Sentian introduced its Lifestyle Automation System, the Sentian 3i with exciting features and benefits. The Sentian 3i is a ‘brain’ for your home security, allowing you to control your alarm, on-site CCTV recording and home automation with a single, intuitive interface, available on multiple platforms.
Eamon Nel from TPA presented some exciting products from its line, like the Premier Elite 64W with I-connect, which is a hybrid control panel with up to 64 ricochet wireless zones or any combination of hard-wired and wireless zones to a maximum of 76 zones. The Texecom Intrusion App from TPA can be used on all Premier control panels where the Texecom IP module or correct Texecom GPRS module has been installed, thereby offering full control from any smartphone or tablet, Android or Apple device.
