Johnson Controls’ PowerSeries Neo Earns Wireless Commercial Burglary ULC Certification - An Industry First in Canada

Press release date: Aug 23, 2017

WESTFORD, Mass. – Johnson Controls announces that PowerSeries Neo with PowerG technology from its DSC brand has received Wireless Commercial Burglary Underwriters Laboratories of Canada (ULC) certification, an industry first in Canada. For those already installing ULC-compliant products, PowerSeries Neo now becomes the leading commercial burglar alarm solution for customers seeking secure, robust and reliable wireless options.

By receiving ULC-S304-16, the category for ULC Wireless Commercial Burglary systems, the PowerSeries Neo has been certified under the highest level of requirements for commercial type applications. This makes PowerSeries Neo the go-to choice for installers looking to add an integrated security product to their portfolio that meets the time-tested assurance of ULC commercial standards.

PowerSeries Neo’s advanced wireless capabilities allow for real time visual verification from strategically positioned wireless passive infrared sensor (PIR) cameras within the building to minimize false alarms. Devices and sensors with PowerG wireless intrusion technology continuously measure the communication quality and automatically sets transmission power to the minimum required for reliable communication with the panel, thereby saving energy and battery life. Solid encryption technology offers an exceptionally high level of protection by guarding against digital attacks on the system. PowerSeries Neo works with mobile apps for efficient, on-the-go monitoring.
