The new training facility will feature live product demos and training programmes
Tyco Security Products, part of Tyco, the world’s largest pure-play fire protection and security company, have launched two new initiatives designed to further support installers and end user customers and expand access to Tyco Security Products’ portfolio of integrated technologies.
With the launch of a new state-of-the-art Demonstration and Training Centre in Manchester, UK and a fleet of mobile demonstration vans, customers will be able to more easily experience the performance, functionality and integration capabilities of Tyco Security Products’ various CCTV, access control and intruder alarm products.
“It’s important for our customers to have hands on access to integrated systems so they can conveniently evaluate the most appropriate solution for their application. With our demonstration centres and demonstration vans, we can bring our newest security technologies directly to the integrator or their customer,” said Phil Dashey, vice president and general manager, Tyco Security Products EMEA.
Modeled after an existing demonstration and training centre in Heathrow, UK, the new Manchester facility will feature live product demos and training programmes on the latest technologies and integrations from American Dynamics, Kantech, Software House, DSC, CEM Systems, Bentel Security, and Visonic. The new centre will allow installers and integrators to identify technologies best suited to a specific project, while end users have the capability to compare and contrast various solutions in an integrated environment. The centre is also available to customers for generic and product-specific training courses, as well as other types of meetings.
Similarly, the new demonstration vans are designed to bring the latest security innovations directly to the integrator or customer location, making it an ideal solution for those not able to attend a trade show or visit the demonstration centres in Heathrow or Manchester. Integrators can also arrange to book the vans for a visit to a customer location to demonstrate specific Tyco Security Products’ technologies.
Within each vehicle is a self-contained showcase of the very latest integrated technologies in the Tyco Security Products portfolio. Currently featured on the CCTV side are a wide range of internal and external cameras, domes, monitors and recording equipment, including the victor unified client, VideoEdge Hybrid NVR and the Illustra 625 PTZ HD camera. Among the access control solutions on display in the van is the Kantech INTEVO plug-and-play security management system and C•CURE 9000 integrated security platform from Software House.
