|Tyco Security Products Unveils New Brand for Location-Based Security
Las Vegas, NV – When Tyco Security Products acquired Visonic, Ltd. late last year, part of the acquisition included a smaller division named Visonic Technologies, a leading developer of Real Time Location Systems (RTLS). With an extensive range of field-proven RTLS products and applications, there was immediate synergy between Visonic Technologies’ portfolio and Tyco Security Products’ integration strategies.
Today, Tyco Security Products is announcing the rebranding of the Visonic Technologies line of products to “Elpas.”
“Those familiar with Visonic Technologies will recognize the Elpas brand as the current name of their powerful real time location awareness system,” said Mark VanDover, President of Tyco Security Products. “With excellent penetration in the healthcare market, the Elpas brand is synonymous with safety, security and visibility. For any business concerned with high-value property, location of personnel, or patient/visitor safety, Elpas is known for unsurpassed location-based security.”
“The Elpas solutions nicely complement Tyco Security Products current portfolio of access control, video, and intrusion products,” said VanDover. “By layering RTLS functionality with our different security products and platforms, we can provide a broad range of cost-effective ways to enhance the protection of high-value assets, staff members, patients and visitors in a variety of markets.”
At the ISC West Conference and Exhibition, Tyco Security Products is demonstrating integration between Elpas and Software House technologies using RTLS tracking data as access control system events. This enables C·CURE 9000 to trigger the appropriate response protocols such as the lockdown of doors should unapproved equipment or patient transfers occur; or to initiate live video streaming upon unauthorized attempts to access restricted areas. A crossplatform, hands-free door locking solution featuring the tight integration of Elpas RTLS/access control interoperability will be showcased in the booth.
“We’re looking forward to extending this integration, not only within C·CURE 9000, but with our victor video management system,” continued VanDover. “A unified victor-driven solution with ‘Elpas inside’ will offer ultimate control of any environment to ensure the protection of people and property.”
Elpas is a new brand of Tyco Security Products and a global provider of scalable Passive & Active RFID/RTLS Safety, Security and Visibility Solutions for Healthcare, Manufacturing, Logistics and Building Automation. Elpas delivers a complete line of real-time location based security solutions that help enhance individual safety, reduce property shrinkage, streamline operational workflows, protect the vulnerable, lessen negligence litigation and facilitate industry guideline compliance. Elpas currently serves customers throughout the Americas, the U.K., EMEA and Asia-Pacific.
