"Our mutual partnership is a clear indication of the rapid expansion of access control systems using IP and PoE," stated Neil Heller, Vigitron's Vice President of Business Development. "This agreement will assure PCSC customers have reliable and cost effective infrastructures designed specifically for their applications and backed by the industry's longest warranty. In return, PCSC's long standing and deep knowledge of the access control market and technology is providing Vigitron the ability to expand its product lines and knowledge base. This partnership mutually benefits both companies and our customers."
"We're excited to further strengthen our business relationship. The continued convergence of the IP/IT world with physical security demands integrated solutions. We recognise this need, and have been at the forefront of offering IP based security products to those professionals," said Mas Kosaka, President and CEO of PCSC. "We have found Vigitron's PoE devices complement our IP based access control solutions, strengthening our Fault Tolerant architecture offering. Enabling power and communication to all LAN devices, whether it is video or entry point hardware is advantageous. Leveraging IP/IT infrastructure means eliminating the need for local power, this consolidates and saves labour costs and reduces install time, all while being more scalable."
