Visitors to the Honeywell stand at Securex 2003 will find that all previous security brands operating within Honeywell's security division have been incorporated into a single business unit under the Honeywell brand.
Frank Fowles, who was instrumental in setting up the TeqTrader business unit which is now known only as Honeywell, says this development has created a truly one-stop security solution supplier, giving the southern African market access to a broad spectrum of security products and equipment - from the very basic through to large integrated security systems.
"In addition to the name TeqTrader, the names Ultrak and Betatech, two companies acquired by Honeywell during 2002, will also be incorporated into the Honeywell brand.
"All Ultrak and Betatech customers can, however, rest assured that they will be guaranteed continuance of these product lines and will benefit from the full capability of Honeywell's security infrastructure and technical support."
Bold new programme
First Alert Professional, a bold new programme that Honeywell expects to change the direction of the South African security industry, will also enjoy pride of place on the Honeywell stand - empowering customers and nurturing small and emerging service providers at the same time.
"We believe First Alert Professional will not only serve as the vehicle for the welcome return of the small to medium vendors, but will empower home and business owners to have the kind of security system that meets their unique requirements."
First Alert Professional enables customers to rent the appropriate security system for homes and businesses. For example, the Platinum package caters for eight security zones expandable to 48 - sufficient for the largest and most complex security challenge. This top of the range system is fully compatible with a wide selection of wireless devices and is suitable for both larger domestic applications and commercial applications. Upgrades and replacements can be made as the customer's needs change.
Expansion to Linbro Park
Such was the demand for Honeywell security equipment and training in 2002 that the company has taken the decision to expand its security operation to new premises in Linbro Park, near Sandton. The new facility will consolidate a number of security operations in one centre - including intrusion, CCTV and advanced solutions - as well as the Honeywell User College.
The college has been operating from Honeywell's Midrand headquarters but increasing demand has made it necessary to build several new training auditoria. The new Linbro Park premises will open in April this year.
