GJD has announced it has signed an agreement to acquire from Embsec AB, a Swedish R&D house, all of their internet protocol (IP) and laser technology plus all related intellectual property rights. The IP technology will be integrated into GJD’s D-TECT detector and Clarius LED illuminator product ranges to provide automated and digitally connectable security solutions.

Embsec’s external laser detectors will be manufactured in-house at GJD’s UK factory under the Laser-Watch and vFence trademarks.

The IP technology will complement GJD’s product range and will provide installers, specifiers and consultants with a ‘one stop shop’ for IP connected detectors, alarm devices and LED illuminators for smart building networks. Mark Tibbenham, Managing Director of GJD commented: “This strategic acquisition will enable the company to substantially develop and grow in terms of technology innovation. There is a high demand for IP security products to complement the rise in smart home and building management systems. GJD’s unique IP enabled intrusion detection and illumination products will open up new doors to these markets.”

Erik Lindstein, Managing Director of Embsec AB commented: “GJD is a fantastic company to take this cutting-edge technology forward. We have worked with GJD for many years and are confident that our customers and suppliers will benefit greatly from GJD’s focus on technology innovation. This change is fantastic news for our customers and partners. Embsec will continue to support our customers during the transition process to ensure it is as smooth as possible.”
