Some 230 delegates attended the recent Tyco Engage Conference 2019 in Spain. They 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 solutions which capitalise on emerging technologies.
‘Beyond Security’ was the theme of the conference at the Melia Villaitana Hotel, Costa Blanca, which began with delegates being welcomed by Alan Riegler, Senior Sales Director EMEA, Access and Video, for Tyco, pictured.
Alan Riegler said: “We were delighted so many of our customers throughout EMEA accepted our invitation to attend this inaugural event. 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 saw 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, in the Tyco Mobile Exhibition Unit, parked in the centre of the hotel complex.
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 drew 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. “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.
