“Tyco has been active in this market for some time and has made the decision to strengthen its presence with the addition of dedicated personnel, who will be based in Midrand,” says Mallett. “The company is committed to developing this market and we will support all video, access control and intrusion products from the Tyco Security Products portfolio. Tyco sees this as a very progressive market where we can accelerate our growth.”

Our solutions today are designed to be compatible with the technology of tomorrow.”
