ABUS: innovation & stability
ABUS used the recent Lockex Exhibition at the Ricoh Arena to launch the following ranges, representing innovation and value across its mechanical and electronic security ranges.
The ABUS Smartvest alarm and smart home system is a timely introduction, integrating its international alarm package into ABUS' now well-developed CCTV security programme. The Smartvest alarm system offers UK security distributors a 'smart' alarm kit, that out of the box via an easily available app, make this alarm system safe, secure, and ultra-convenient. The Smartvest alarm system can be integrated with ABUS CCTV cameras.
The Lockex show generated keen interest in the Smartvest range due to its functionality and attractive net pricing.
ABUS previewed at Lockex the wApploxx range of 'mechatronic' access control. The wApploxx system allows both domestic or commercial sites to have wireless and keyless entry for various people at various times. Programming of the system is performed easily via the app, as is opening for unexpected visitors remotely by authorised personnel. Fully launched in the UK in November, Lockex proved to be an ideal preview of this innovative range to the security market, with many positive leads.
Lockex also proved a great launch platform for a new range of ABUS BSI* cylinders, made under patent at the ABUS Pfaffenhain German factory. This new BSI* range is available at very attractive RRPs (35/35 double at £33) on a standard ABUS patented house section. Alternatively, ABUS customers with their own existing sections on either systems ABUS Z14 or Y14 can now have their unique section made to BSI* specification. ABUS are confident the range combining both BSI rated security with a high specification cylinder at a reduced price to fulfil consumer demand.
In addition to these welcome new introductions at Lockex, the show also gave ABUS the opportunity to confirm to the trade, that unlike many other post Brexit price increases, ABUS are maintaining 2016 RRPs in place till April 2017. Many visitors to the ABUS stand, having already received so many supplier increases, very much appreciated this ABUS Group support in ensuring ABUS UK £ RRP stability.
