Millworks Custom Manufacturing in Toronto has installed a complete security solution using DSC PowerSeries Neo from Tyco Security Products to integrate a wireless intrusion system throughout its custom millworks facility.

DSC PowerSeries Neo is a wireless intrusion system with PowerG technology that provides around the clock monitoring to multiple perimeter doors. This system offers protection to Millworks Custom Manufacturing’s valuable hardwood materials in the facility, which are routinely used to create custom furnishings for large offices, restaurants, retail stores and art galleries around the world.
Millworks needed a highly reliable alarm system that closely monitors the opening and closing of numerous doors day and night.
“Our shop is pretty busy with multiple doors opening and closing at various times in any 24-hour period,” said Wojtek Sztokiecki, controller at Millworks Custom Manufacturing. “Having each door marked and equipped with a sensor makes it easy at the end of the day to remotely and automatically check if any doors are left open.”
Millworks employs more than 250 people, and occupies more than 140,000 square feet of custom manufacturing and warehousing space, which in certain areas reaches up to three stories high.
As a result of this new security solution, the custom manufacturing company is able to monitor who is coming in and out of the building more effectively. PowerSeries Neo has the ability to transmit through thick steel barrier walls, across parking lots and throughout the expansive building. This security solution consists of wireless repeaters, full message wired keypads for the main office as well as a full message wireless keypad that is placed in all the main employee entrances. With all of these different elements, the PowerSeries Neo is able to tell when and where a door is open that shouldn’t be.
With integrator partner All Seasons Security, based in Orangeville, Ont., Millworks Custom Manufacturing has 58 zones of coverage. “The power of PowerSeries Neo, including its range and capabilities, that come with industry-leading PowerG technology, made this the ideal solution for a large project such as this one,” said Hardy Deifel, president of All Seasons Security. “And there was a real sense of satisfaction that it all came together so well.”
