Lifestyle meeting the need

August 2002 News

"When the costs of imported security equipment began to soar, there became a need in South Africa, not just for a local product, but for a technologically advanced security system that could hold its own throughout the world and is still accessible to the man on the street."

This is according to Yusuf Mather of MS International, which recently launched its South African range of quality security equipment.

Before the launch, the Lifestyle range was well researched and tested until the developers were satisfied that they had designed a product that they could present to South Africa that performs well in our rugged conditions. "The Lifestyle range received outstanding scores on all field tests, where the products were installed, and their capabilities for intruder detection were tested. It is safe to say that this range of products can truly stand up to the excessive crime rates experienced in our country. What makes this product stand out above its competitors is that it is designed by South Africans for South Africans, specially to combat crime and protect the people you love most," explains Mather.

The technological developments enable MS International to not only market this product in South Africa, but to also follow up on the interest shown by clients throughout the world. "By meeting a demand in other countries, Lifestyle will also serve to promote South Africa to the rest of the world, demonstrating the capabilities of South African engineers and their designs," says Mather.

The Lifestyle range is a user-friendly system, which is easy to install and program. It is a modern looking system that is attractive and neat in any setting. For the end-user, it is simple yet effective as the complete quality security. "Best of all is the affordability of the system," explains Mather. "A slogan has emerged in terms of security in South Africa over the past few years: 'It is not can you afford a security system, but rather can you afford not to have a security system?' The Lifestyle range is hoping to change this slogan to mean that everyone can afford an effective security system that meets their requirements."

The Lifestyle range includes:

* Passive infrared detectors with features such as:

• 1-5 pulse counts.

• Lightning surge protection.

• 18 m range at 100° angle.

• 24 detection beams.

• Walk test option.

p An 8-zone control panel. To name but a few features:

• Single key operation.

• Triggers per zone or event.

• Local and remote download.

• Four programmable triggers.

• As well as many more features that are too numerous to name.

Other products include an 8-zone keypad, transmitters and receivers, etc.
