RISCO Group announces strategic partnership with CSL DualCom and unveils new HandyApp

Global integrated security solutions provider RISCO Group has announced a “pioneering” partnership with CSL DualCom. Available now, the award-winning RISCO LightSYSTM 2 and RISCO AgilityTM 3 IP/GSM panels are being supplied as standard with the DualCom WorldSIM®.

CSL DualCom is renowned for providing a platform and products that facilitate the reliable delivery of alarm signals from any protected premises to the Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) – and all while reducing or eliminating any erroneous issues for ARCs and installers.

CSL DualCom’s Critical Connectivity® services negate the need for hard-wired IT infrastructure as connection to the Cloud can be achieved across IP or any mobile network using a DualCom WorldSIM®. The multi-network WorldSIM® ensures increased signal reliability and can help to reduce false alarms by up to 90%.

RISCO supports security installers with new HandyApp

RISCO Group has launched HandyApp, an app for Apple and Android devices that brings together everything an installer may need­­ – and it’s all available at their fingertips.

The first smart phone application to provide all sales and installation activities to support professional security installers, RISCO HandyApp provides comprehensive on-demand access to RISCO sales and aftercare services.

Available free-of-charge, HandyApp supports instant access to installation manuals and user guides, as well as sales materials such as product images and brochures.

To help ensure the sales and specification process is made as simple as possible, selected files may be shared with customers via an in-app share button, allowing materials to be forwarded directly via message or e-mail.

Using the QR codes found on RISCO products and packaging, HandyApp can also be used to instantly retrieve specific product information such as part numbers and unique serial numbers. This enables fast access to product materials and easy identification of product details in the app’s Service and Support area.

Additionally, QR codes can be used to activate the Warranty Activation function. Once scanned, any RISCO product’s warranty is automatically extended by six months – increasing the warranty period to 30 months.

Power consumption, battery back-up and anti-code generator calculators are also available to assist security installers. Specified by system, they calculate if additional power supplies are required while the anti-code generator allows alarm panels to be unlocked both simply and efficiently.

The app’s Service and Support area provides a direct connection to the local RISCO support team, allowing any service or warranty queries to be answered quickly and efficiently.

For easier troubleshooting, users can also transfer images directly though the app.
