Product innovation will continue to be one of the growth drivers in the fire- and life-safety industry. While our industry’s growth is tightly linked to construction activity, true growth will occur through innovations that better protect life and property.
At System Sensor, we are committed to expanding the life-safety proposition, never accepting the status quo. This way of thinking led to the development of our ExitPoint™ directional sound product. By challenging the definition of life safety, we determined it’s not enough to just notify people of a fire — with our partners, we’ve done a good job of this for many years — but we should now guide building occupants to safety.
Ten years ago, this industry was not comprised of Fortune 50 companies. Today, with the entry of R&D-focused corporations like Honeywell, the expectations of end-users have heightened. Now, building owners, engineers and installers can expect to see an acceleration of new technology development. With access to a vast library of technological innovation, System Sensor is in a favorable position to address the issues facing the life-safety industry. Our reach now extends into monitoring gas (including carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide), wireless smoke detector systems and high-sensitivity smoke detection.
System Sensor will continue to look for avenues of growth.
Our best to you in 2006.
