Texecom’s new Ricochet wireless mesh network security technology has been listed as a finalist in the Security Innovation of the Year category at the Security Excellence Awards 2011. The company is also on the shortlist for the International Achievement award, which recognises export business success.
The Security Excellence Awards programme, now in its 13th year, recognises and rewards the very best individuals, companies and developments in the security industry. Texecom, the UK based designer and manufacturer of electronic security equipment, is pleased to be considered for awards to both its products and the business itself.
The Ricochet wireless mesh network technology is the company’s flagship new offering. Available as a variant or addition to almost all its existing security systems, Ricochet offers the benefits of wireless telemetry without compromising on the stability or reliability of the network. The ‘mesh’ method of communication means that each device is connected to every other nearby device, and each signal can be re-routed in real-time to ensure a strong, high quality and stable connection to the control panel. This innovation means that the security industry can now embrace the advantages of wireless technology, even in environments previously deemed unsuitable for wireless signalling.
The arrival of Ricochet has also been one of the factors helping Texecom to achieve outstanding export growth in the past year. Texecom has significantly increased market share, with new customers around the world impressed by the company’s well-earned reputation for innovative design allied to top-quality manufacturing and market-leading support and expertise.
