The 230 delegates who attended the recent Tyco Engage Conference 2019 were among the first to see how Tyco, the security products division of Johnson Controls, is continuing to help system integrators grow their businesses by developing innovative solutions which capitalise on emerging technologies.
‘Beyond Security’ was the central theme of the conference held at the Melia Villaitana Hotel, Costa Blanca, Spain, which began with delegates being welcomed by Alan Riegler, Senior Sales Director EMEA, Access & Video for Tyco.
“We were delighted so many of our customers throughout EMEA accepted our invitation to attend this inaugural event,” said Alan Riegler. “In my opening remarks I took the opportunity to highlight how we intend to build on our reputation for developing quality electronic security products with the introduction of new market leading solutions which incorporate the very latest advances in technology.
“I was also pleased to confirm that whilst almost all Tyco products now have Johnson Controls branding, our security division products are an exception. This decision to retain the Tyco name reflects the fact that we are a well established and highly respected brand within the electronic security sector.”
Day one of the conference included a wide range of presentations covering key aspects of Tyco branded Access Control, Fire Detection, Intrusion and Video Surveillance solutions. Day two enabled delegates to attend more in-depth presentations, as well as see live demonstrations of various solutions carried out in the fully equipped Tyco Mobile Exhibition Unit, which was parked in the centre of the hotel complex.
Game changing technology
Presentations on the company’s ongoing commitment to its Cyber Solutions Product Security Program, as well as the Tyco Cloud and Drone solutions, were among the various sessions which attracted considerable interest from the delegates. Live demonstrations of the new Tyco Frictionless access control solution were also well attended, with many agreeing that it is a potential game changer. Due to be launched at the end of 2019, this uses advanced face identification technology to provide a highly effective method of controlling access to restricted areas of a building.
Johnson Controls’ sales and technical personnel were on hand to ensure that the delegates achieved maximum benefit from attending the conference. “In addition to showcasing how Tyco is no longer just focusing on traditional electronic security products, the event also provided an opportunity for our customers to exchange ideas on how to succeed in a highly competitive market,” added Alan Riegler.
