Monday, June 1, 2009

BLOOMFIELD, Conn. and MELVILLE, N.Y.--Visonic Ltd., a developer and manufacturer of home security and safety systems and components, has launched a series of PERS boot camps.

According to Visonic president Americas Bill Lyon, the camps, run in conjunction with security industry mainstays like ADI and CMS, are designed to breath new life into the industry in tough economic times. “We’re responsible ... for helping educate the home security dealer on how to make this a business, and not a hobby,” Lyon said.

ADI, a wholesale supplier of security and low voltage products, has partnered with Visonic on several occasions. ADI director of product marketing, intrusion and fire products Scott Sturgess believes PERS offers the right opportunity at the right time. “With the graying of America, it’s really a great opportunity for our customers. We look at this as a great opportunity for our dealers to get into an adjacent space,” Sturgess said.
