Effective from 1st June 2015, the global Siemens Building Technologies Division has completed the sale of its Security Products business.

Siemens integrated security solutions reduce loss and improve safety across multiple market sectors including critical national infrastructure, utilities, transportation, commercial, financial, industrial and public space.

"Security solutions are a fundamental pillar of our offering. By focusing on our state-of-the-art software-based security solutions, we are expanding our traditional strengths in the solutions business. We remain a strong and reliable technology partner for our extensive customer base."
