Armco Key Security Limited is a young and innovative UK based company that is focused on inventing, designing, developing and marketing a suite of ‘smart’ products in the home automation space. Our core product is the GlazeAlarm®, a revolutionary security solution that is set to transform the glazing industry across the globe. In the process our product will enable glazing manufacturers to compete in the global security market for the first time.
The GlazeAlarm® is a wireless enabled sensor which is built into a double or triple glazed unit at the point of manufacture. The sensor will alert the user to a breakage via a hand held control unit, smart phone, tablet or pc. The GlazeAlarm® security suite enables the user to remotely manage the security of their premises. The foundation of this being the most robust and tamper-proof glass break solution available today. The product has applications for both the residential and commercial sectors.
The GlazeAlarm® is also capable of monitoring and reporting on both the integrity of the glazing and internal temperatures within the property. The company intends to launch residential energy management and commercial sustainability products in the medium term to utilise these capabilities.
The GlazeAlarm® offers huge benefits to the window manufacturers and their distributors. In an industry that has become homogenised, where the only thing that players compete on is price, the GlazeAlarm® offers an opportunity for product differentiation and to up-sell and re-sell their client base.
The addition of a GlazeAlarm® to a sealed glazed unit during the manufacturing process is completely non-disruptive. The sensors have been designed and patented to seamlessly integrate with the glazed unit manufacturing process whether this is automated or manual. Therefore the GlazeAlarm® can be added to the manufacturers’ product line at virtually no cost. Lastly the product and its supporting hardware/software has been specifically designed to ‘plug and go’ therefore having no impact on the delivery process.
Commercial terms are naturally quantity dependant, but margins for manufacturers/distributers are meaningful whilst the increase to retail price for the entire GlazeAlarm® solution is targeted at 10-15%. For further information on product or commercial terms please contact our sales team.
Armco Key Security is committed to innovation within the glazing industry, creating a value proposition for manufacturers and retailers through additional and differentiated product lines.
