Tri-Ed is also partnering with SecurityInc, LLC to bring its access control products and software to market. Under the agreement, Tri-Ed will stock SecurityInc’s Insignia Access Control I-4000 control panel and Clarity software at regional branch locations. They are now available in the Tri-Ed Boston, Connecticut, Buffalo, Virginia Beach, Charlotte and Puerto Rico locations.
