SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST
NAPCO has been providing the independent dealer with security solutions since 1969, and has introduced a succession of innovative products and a focused corporate mission. By acquiring door hardware manufacturer Alarm Lock, and access control system manufacturer Continental Instruments and still continuing to hone its core specialty of electronic security manufacturing; NAPCO has prospered and evolved as still independent, still loyal to its dealers, and very successful.
The new NAPCO Freedom reflects the maturity of NAPCO’s technology, its ability to come up with new ideas, and its awareness of the needs of the market and the challenges facing the industry; namely providing products which fit the demographic of strongest potential sales growth, and mitigating the false alarm crisis which threatens the residential alarm industry with extinction.
NAPCO FREEDOM is of special interest to locksmiths because of its unique adaptation of the deadbolt into the system’s operation and security.
Also of interest to anyone involved in the alarm business are the ease of operation and false alarm reduction measures which are integral features of Freedom. These factors will encourage sales and discourage complaints and fines for unnecessary police dispatches.
Freedom can be configured for homes with multiple deadbolts. Freedom can be configured to monitor a garage door equipped with an opener. Many homeowners use their garage door as their primary means of entering and leaving their homes, and Freedom has technology to accommodate them.
Freedom also incorporates a motion detector into the alarm keypad. This figures into the Freedom design, philosophy, and also simplifies installations.
Freedom supports up to eight zones and uses many of the same GEM family of wireless sensors and transmitters as other NAPCO security systems.
Besides simple code-free (no keypad) arming and disarming, Freedom is supplied with digital keys (FOBS) which may be used to further control the Freedom panel.
For more information, contact your local locksmith distributor or Napco, telephone 800-645-9445, web site www.napcosecurity.com.
Arm this system by pushing a button and disarm it by unlocking the deadbolt.
