Visonic brings wireless intrusion detection home

January 2009 Perimeter Security, Alarms & Intruder Detection

Visonic is an international producer of wireless intrusion detection systems, specifically aimed at the home market. The company is based in Israel and has a long history in the South African market where it sells through a number of local distributors.

Initially the company produced a series of wired detectors and sold these in a competitive market for a number of years, but has recognised that wireless is the future and is now focused on this growing market sector. In its main markets of the US and EU, the company shows consistent growth in the region of 20% per annum. In the emerging African market its is looking at 30% to 40% year-on-year growth for its products.

The company is ahead of the pack when it comes to wireless detectors, says Johan Crause, Visonic’s regional sales manager for Sub-Saharan Africa, and already has over 120 registered patents and over 70 pending.

Crause says that many people still believe wired security systems in the home are cheaper and more reliable, but these people are still living in the 20th century. “Wireless is cheaper and it appeals to home owners as it can offer full intrusion and fire detection, as well as camera controls from anywhere in the world with an Internet connection. This includes full control of their systems via cellular phone.”

Moreover, it is also faster to install wireless systems with fewer visible parts. There are no cables that have to be installed or hidden. Crause says a 16-zone wireless solution can be installed and configured in less than three hours.

Security is a grudge purchase in most instances, but with wireless technology it can be turned into an aesthetically pleasing solution that protects person and property, and provides the home owner with peace of mind.
