02.16.2011– Miami, Fla. – FutureSentry, a developer of an automated detection solution designed to enhance perimeter security, has opened a new manufacturing facility in Elkton, Va., that will manufacture and assemble the company’s flagship solution, the FutureSentry FirstResponder. FutureSentry currently occupies a total of 6,050 square feet of the state-of-the-art facility but has plans to expand its manufacturing to encompass more than 17,500 square feet with additional space allocated to administrative functions.
The new building enables FutureSentry to enhance production of the FutureSentry FirstResponder. By leveraging advanced algorithms, the FutureSentry FirstResponder automatically identifies potentially dangerous targets within 700 feet, and tracks objects to deter criminal behavior. Once it detects motion in a user-defined area, the system illuminates activity with a high-intensity LED light. Therefore, the system mimics the actions of a security guard to deter criminal behavior before loss or damage occurs. When integrated with IP or analog surveillance cameras, the solution captures valuable video evidence for forensic analysis. It can also be combined with a variety of security edge devices.
"Our new manufacturing facility allows us to embrace advanced equipment and manufacturing processes to enhance the FutureSentry perimeter detection solution," said Jaak Rannik, CEO, FutureSentry. "Furthermore, the new location enables us to streamline research and development, and provide world-class support to our growing network of security integration partners."
Over the past year, FutureSentry has experienced significant support from the security industry as users look for solutions that enable security teams to be more proactive. In response to this market demand, FutureSentry named Rolland Trayte to the new role of Senior Advisor. In this role, Trayte serves as the chief advisor directly focused on building the FutureSentry reseller network. He will work closely with the executive and sales teams to strengthen relationships with systems integrators to bring the company’s solutions to a broader customer base.
Trayte is a security industry veteran who has previously held senior leadership roles with AmberAlert.com and Westec Interactive. He also served as Director, Loss Prevention at ConocoPhillips/Circle K, and Director, Loss Prevention and Security at Tosco Corp. He has more than 30 years of experience in the security and loss prevention markets.
"FutureSentry is a world-class security solution that enables security teams to be more proactive and shorten response times before loss occurs," Trayte said. "I am thrilled to be working alongside the talented team as we look to build the company’s relationships with the integration community."
