Stratecon Brings Added Security and Profit to Custom Integration & Specialty Retail

Industry Marketer Signs Agreement with Emerging Security Provider to Introduce Line of Digital Protection Products to Specialty Channels

The Stratecon Group, Inc. (Stratecon) announced today that it has signed an agreement with InGrid, Inc. (InGrid) to provide marketing services and support for their advanced technology Digital Home Protection line of products in the custom integration and specialty retail channels. This new agreement takes immediate effect and creates an opportunity for custom integrators and specialty retailers to offer home protection services for their customers in a manner that not only drives added revenues…but also added profits.

InGrid, based in Berwyn, PA, is an emerging provider of home protection solutions utilizing advanced digital technology which offers several advantages over traditional analog security systems. InGrid's home protection products are based on mesh technology that was originally developed for the U.S. military. InGrid's engineers took it one step further by making their products broadband enabled, which dramatically increased the flexibility and usability of the system for the end user. The InGrid Digital Home Protection system creates an impenetrable security grid throughout the home that is virtually undefeatable.

Stratecon will work with InGrid to make this incredible system available to the custom integration and specialty retail channel. Security has generally been handled by security providers whose business model is substantially foreign to the typical specialty electronics integrator/retailer. Stratecon will work with InGrid to develop programs and policies specific to the specialty channel, such that retailers and integrators can offer a solution that meets their customer's needs for home protection, but at the same time gives the integrators and retailers an opportunity to realize added profit for their business.

"We believe that specialty customers have a real need for advanced home protection solutions like those offered by InGrid. The Stratecon Group is really plugged into this channel and we look forward to working with Ted Green and his team in bringing InGrid technology to custom installers, systems integrators and specialty retailers," said John Pierce, Vice President of Sales for InGrid, Inc.

Adds Stratecon's president, Ted Green, "InGrid products feature the latest digital technology, quick installation, and ergonomic end -user interface. Up until now, security has been a difficult area for the specialty channel to address. InGrid, however, brings a better solution to the table to the benefit of integrators and retailers…and, of course, consumers. All of us at Stratecon are excited at the opportunity InGrid is making available."

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
