NEW YORK, July 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- NAPCO Security Technologies, (NASDAQ : NSSC ) one of the world's leading manufacturers of leading-edge intrusion and fire systems, connected home, locks and access control, today announces the all-new line of commercial fire alarm communicators, marketed under the popular StarLink brand.
The new line of commercial fire wireless communicators debuted at the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Show in Chicago, an event widely regarded as the most comprehensive industry event for countless professionals. Attended by thousands, from all fifty states and over 30 countries, the NFPA Conference & Expo is the ideal venue to introduce products and services needed to meet and maintain compliance with prevailing codes in design, construction and building operation. The StarLink Fire Communicators are designed specifically to meet NFPA 72-Code and are UL certified. NAPCO demonstrated the new StarLink Fire Communicators alongside the Company's own Firewolf Addressable/Wireless & Conventional Fire Systems, although StarLink Fire can be universally used on any brand Fire Panel or System.
This entry will firmly place the Company in the burgeoning wireless fire alarm communicator category. This is a segment poised to see a high volume of growth, as there is a large demand for replacing, quickly-disappearing traditional phone lines and older 2G cellular networks, earmarked for discontinuation in 2017.
Richard Soloway, NAPCO President and CEO said, "We are pleased with the considerable interest and enthusiasm with which the new StarLink Fire Communicators have been met, and are very excited by the future growth that StarLink represents for the Company as a whole. There are estimated to be millions of commercial fire system communicators currently in commercial buildings which will need replacement with more advanced CDMA cellular communicators, such as our Verizon Network Certified™ StarLink Cellular solution."
Added to the Company's fast-growing StarLink Product line, award-winning StarLink Fire Universal Fire Alarm Communicators will increase NAPCO's marketing footprint and should drive substantial future growth in the lucrative subscription-based recurring monthly revenue generating alarm signal communication category.
