Austin, TX - March 25, 2013 - TOTUS Solutions, Inc., the provider of the World’s first outdoor LED lighting based security platforms, announced today it has aligned with MicroTech, one of the fastest growing solutions providers in North America, to market TOTUS Security Platforms™ to government buyers with MicroTech’s 25+ procurement vehicles.
MicroTech, an award-winning technology systems integrator headquartered in the nation’s capital, found that the TOTUS outdoor lighting based security platforms help it create world-class surveillance systems for its government buyers’ specific needs. Easy integration into existing technology solutions, energy savings of 70% compared to traditional outdoor lighting, and an ROI of less than five years were cited as key benefits of TOTUS Security Platforms for the government sector.
“MicroTech has forged key strategic alliances with industry leading vendors and plans on incorporating TOTUS Solutions’ technology to design highly customized surveillance solutions for our customers,” said Kevin Williams, Vice President of Unified Communications and Collaboration Solutions. “Working with TOTUS allows us to bring to our customers not just a lighting surveillance package, but a true security platform that incorporates lighting and surveillance with communication – a key component to not just watching crime as it happens, but being able to prevent it. We believe our customers will be excited about the TOTUS and MicroTech partnership.”
As a freestanding platform prior to customizations, TOTUS offers an all-in-one security solution with surveillance capabilities, including a 360-degree megapixel IP video camera, wireless communication abilities and multi-day media storage within its freestanding LED lighting platform. The TOTUS technology transforms passive surveillance into Active Deterrence™ by dynamically warding off intruders during the event of a crime. Additionally, TOTUS platforms provide an eco-friendly lighting solution, saving customers up to 70% in energy costs compared to traditional outdoor lighting.
“TOTUS Solutions welcomes the opportunity to partner with a reseller like MicroTech, who is highly focused on Federal projects and has a proven track record of delivering the right solution to clients, including the Department of Defense,” said John B. Hanby, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales, TOTUS Solutions. “MicroTech understands the government space and the value TOTUS security platforms, with Active Deterrence, can provide there.”
