Kelly Romano, president of UTC Fire & Security’s Global Security Products business said: “In the past two years, we have really changed the game for UTC Fire & Security, positioning the Security Products business to capitalize on current growth trends and opportunities.”

Interlogix™, a leader in security and life safety solutions for residential and commercial enterprises, announced at the show the expansion of its video surveillance line to include IP and megapixel cameras that comply with the standardization requirements of both ONVIF (the Open Network Video Interface Forum) and PSIA (the Physical Security Industry Association), offering customers a variety of options for their network installation. On display at the Interlogix booth, these cameras form a complete line of network recorders, analog and network cameras, and transmission equipment.
“With this increased investment in video products, we are providing more IP-centric solutions that meet industry standards and can be integrated with third-party offerings,” stated Kostas Mellos, Interlogix sales leader, video & transmission.
Also from Interlogix, the TruPortal IP appliance-based access control solution is designed to deliver reliable, high-end technology that installs quickly and easily out of the box, is targeted for small to mid-sized commercial installations, and works seamlessly with the TruVision line of video surveillance recorders and cameras. The company introduced a companion iPad® application that enables users to remotely monitor system activity and perform basic administration.
Another mobile app announced at the show is MASmobile™ for the MASterMind security automation software. The MASmobile app is downloadable from Apple® and compatible with both the iPhone® and iPad® devices, allowing customers and technicians to view system status summaries, events and test history, zones, contacts and can remotely place systems on and off test.
