AMITYVILLE, N.Y., May 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- NAPCO Security Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: NSSC) one of the world's leading solutions providers and manufacturers of high tech electronic intrusion security, IoT connected home, video and fire systems, as well as enterprise-class access control and door locking products today announced that the Starlink Intrusion Communicator will be launched for sale in Canada.
The Starlink Intrusion Communicator will soon be available to thousands of alarm dealers and integrators in Canada, thus expanding the geographic reach for NAPCO. The communicator replaces the need for traditional phone lines in order to get an alarm signal from a residence or small business to the central monitoring station. Starlink has been a great success in the US during the last few years and NAPCO expects the launch in the Canadian market to be met with much excitement.
According to the Canadian census data there are approximately 15 million homes in the country, thus there is a very large potential market opportunity. The number of citizens with telephone landlines continues to decrease every yeari, similar to what is happening in the US, hence the need for NAPCO's innovative communication products. Expanding the geographic reach to new markets will help further the growth of these product sales and their recurring revenue streams to NAPCO.
Richard Soloway, CEO of NAPCO commented, "Given the size of the Canadian market and our success in the US market with our cutting edge Starlink cellular communicator technology, the introduction of the Starlink Intrusion Communicators into Canada should lead to stronger Canadian sales as well as further increases in recurring revenue, which grew last quarter by 68%."
The Starlink Communicator family includes the Intrusion, Fire and Connect. The Fire Communicator is designed for commercial building applications and the Connect Communicator offers intrusion communication features plus IoT services such as lighting, lock, climate control and video. Recurring revenue is generated for NAPCO, via the monthly fee charged to dealers to relay the signal through its network operating center. NAPCO's recurring revenue stream from the Starlink Intrusion as well as its other Starlink Communicators has seen strong growth over the last few years.
