Powerline Control Systems Announces Strategic Alliance with Visonic

Northridge, Calif. — October 19, 2011 — Powerline Control Systems, Inc. (PCS), the manufacturer of PulseWorx lighting controls and Mi LightStyle for residential and light commercial applications, and the inventor of Universal Powerline Bus® (UPB®) technology is pleased to announce its partnership with Visonic, a leading manufacturer of cutting-edge wireless home security and safety systems.

“By sharing our technologies and aligning our systems, we’ve created an alliance in which installers and consumers are the real winners,” adds Mark Ingram, president of Visonic, Inc. “Independently, both of our solutions are easy to install and operate, but making them compatible gives confidence to the installer that their entire system will work well.”
