TESSCO And TOTUS Solutions To Provide First-Ever Outdoor Lighting-Based Security Platforms With Wireless Capabilities

TESSCO Technologies Incorporated (NASDAQ: TESS), a leading provider of the product and value chain solutions required to build, use and maintain wireless systems, and TOTUS Solutions, Inc., provider of the world’s first outdoor LED lighting-based security platforms, have announced that TOTUS Solutions’ award-winning security platforms are now available through TESSCO.

This new relationship will expand the availability of TOTUS Security Platforms™ in North America, supporting the demand for proactive, rather than reactive, security solutions for outdoor applications. TESSCO customers will now have access to TOTUS Smart Lighting Platforms™ (TLP), TOTUS Network Platforms™ (TNP), as well as TOTUS Surveillance Platforms™ (TSP), the most advanced group of TOTUS Security Platforms.

These platforms reliably deliver an all-in-one lighting, communication, and surveillance solution. The platforms’ remote or analytics-triggered lighting control can activate lights to flash in real time in accordance with the system’s Voice-over-IP capability, enabling real-time interaction with persons on-site. This unique TOTUS Active Deterrence™ feature assists in preventing crime instead of passively recording it while it happens.

"TESSCO is pleased to be partnering with TOTUS as it enables us to offer an event-triggered outdoor wireless security and communications solution with unmatched deterrence capabilities," said Gerald Garland, Senior Vice President at TESSCO. "The Security Platforms are an ideal solution for customers interested in implementing an emerging technology with an embedded intelligence that effectively discourages crime.”

“We're very excited about the breadth and depth of experience that TESSCO brings to our partnership. TOTUS manufactures an innovative and unique solution that will bring significant value to TESSCO customers. We believe that TOTUS and TESSCO will have a mutually beneficial relationship," said John Hanby, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales, TOTUS Solutions.

Winner of many awards, including the Best Outdoor Perimeter Protection Award at ISC West 2013, the TOTUS platforms provide an eco-friendly lighting solution, saving customers up to 70 percent in energy costs compared to traditional outdoor lighting. TOTUS lighting, surveillance and event-triggered alerts can be managed through a secure Web interface by remote security personnel. Users can select everything from lighting levels during operation, as well as visual and custom audio alarm notification played during triggered events.
