Is Pegasus ready to take flight?
LOUISVILLE, Ky.--Visitors to PSA-TEC in May were greeted by one lead sponsor, Pegasus Products, with whom many were not familiar. One of PSA SecurityÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s newest vendor partners, Pegasus is a rapidly growing company looking to make an impact in the market as a quality value-line product, said Rich Morgan, the companyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s general manager.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Fifteen years ago,Ã¢â‚¬Â he said, Ã¢â‚¬Å“we had one camera, three monitors and a few mounts. Now we have pretty much everything in the industry for CCTV, short of PTZ and matrix equipment.Ã¢â‚¬Â Further, the company has audio packages and recently launched a new line of biometric access control products.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“We had some requests to see about some kind of access,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Morgan, Ã¢â‚¬Å“and we brought this unit into the line and it was received very well. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a very robust little unit, and for the price itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s just remarkable.Ã¢â‚¬Â
And Pegasus isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t ashamed to compete on price. Ã¢â‚¬Å“The reason PSA was interested in us,Ã¢â‚¬Â Morgan said, Ã¢â‚¬Å“is that they were looking for a value line to offer, yet still retain quality. We come with less than a one-percent failure rate, so we can provide that quality in something a little more inexpensive.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Morgan said he was pleased with the results from the PSA-TEC show, which landed them some 20 to 25 orders. Ã¢â‚¬Å“WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re pleased with the investment,Ã¢â‚¬Â he said.
DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t look for Pegasus to try to be a one-stop shop, however. While the company will continue to grow, adding IP cameras in the near future, Ã¢â‚¬Å“weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll never do fire and burg,Ã¢â‚¬Â Morgan said. Ã¢â‚¬Å“WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll have a few odd items that donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t really fit into CCTV, but that will remain our forte.Ã¢â‚¬Â
