Hills to launch fire detection range
Hills has announced it will partner with UTC Fire & Security (UTC) to introduce a range of fire detection products into the Australian and New Zealand markets.
Keen to round out its range of technology and communications solutions, Hills will take on UTC products including fire panels, smoke detectors, sounders, speakers and heat alarms suitable for both commercial and residential applications.
Hills CEO David Lenz says that fire detection is a natural fit with the security systems already offered and supplying the UTC products positions the company as a one-stop shop.
“There is enormous potential to provide smart, one-stop solutions by linking the technology between various Hills product divisions. It will give Hills the advantage of being a complete solution seller — anything that monitors, on any application or any platform, can be provided by Hills.
“It is a great opportunity for Hills, and for all of the integrators who install our security systems, to benefit from an added income stream,” he said.
The range is expected to launch in January 2017.
