GJD, one of the world’s leading manufacturers and designers of professional external detector equipment and LED illuminators, has announced that the business has signed an agreement to acquire from Embsec AB, a Swedish R&D house, all of its Internet Protocol (IP) and laser technology plus all related Intellectual Property rights. The IP technology will now be integrated within GJD’s D-TECT detector and Clarius LED illuminator product ranges in order to provide automated and digitally connectable security solutions for customers.
Embsec’s laser scanning and time of flight technology solutions will position GJD Manufacturing as a leader in the field of laser detection. These products are proving popular, providing extremely accurate detection for high risk security applications.
Going forward, the external laser detectors will now be produced in-house at GJD Manufacturing’s UK factory under the established Laser-Watch and vFence trademarks.
Traditional ‘analogue’ security and lighting systems have been the most popular choice for a variety of applications for decades. In 2016, the Internet of Things (IoT) exploded into the security world. More and more companies are looking to seamlessly connect their products (security-related or otherwise) to the Internet for remote diagnostics, programming and control applications. The purchase of Embsec’s IP products, software and technology allows GJD to offer a fully-integrated IP solution, with all products being manufactured in-house at GJD’s head office in Heywood, Greater Manchester.
