Monday, June 1, 2009

BLOOMFIELD, Conn.--Visonic announced in May that it has entered into an agreement to incorporate its PowerMax line of wireless alarm systems into the product offering of Smith & Wesson Security Services. The PowerMax products will enable Smith & Wesson Security Services dealers to secure their residential customers with up to 29 zones wirelessly.

Smith & Wesson Security Services selected Visonic’s PowerMax system, according to the release, because the technology provides easy user-management of all connected systems, including security and fire alarms. The PowerMax allows remote, mobile and in-house control of wireless alarm devices and secured zones and is the newest system Smith & Wesson Security Services has added to its extensive line of electronic alarm offerings. It connects with a wide range of wireless transmitters and detectors, including door and window contacts, glass-break sensors, pet-immune motion detectors, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, flood sensors and more.

“We are pleased to announce this agreement with Visonic, which will help to bring high-quality wireless security systems into homes across the nation,” said Aaron Wahrsager, COO of Smith & Wesson Security Services, in a statement. “The PowerMax system provides flexibility, ease of use, and quick installation, all without sacrificing reliability. These are the unique advantages that make PowerMax a perfect fit for our Authorized Security Dealers and their customers. Our agreement with Visonic expands our product offering to include a wireless system that is particularly well-suited for mobile or small applications.”
