ADT Commercial Changes Name to Tyco Integrated Security

As part of the pending spinoff of ADT Residential division, parent company Tyco is forced to change the name of its ADT Commercial division.

Commercial clients will be saying bye-bye to the ADT Business Solutions name and hello to Tyco Integrated Security.

ADT Commercial Security, a unit of Tyco Fire & Security, is changing its name to Tyco Integrated Security.

The name change is a direct result of the announcement in September 2011 by Tyco International Ltd. on its plan to separate into three independent companies, led by the spinoff of ADT Residential, the No. 1 company on the CE Pro 100, to its own separate company.

Leveraging the global resources of Tyco Fire & Security, the company will focus on the unique security needs of businesses.

Among its new solutions recently announced at ISC West are:

ADT’s video services: Allows customers to leverage existing investment in video surveillance infrastructure by connecting it to ADT’s video monitoring and management service.

Select DataSource: A self-service security management solution that allows customers access to account information from a secure self-service web portal through a user-friendly interface.

GPS, Wi-Fi tracking: A location-aware tracking and recovery device that provides companies a proven solution for preventing loss, improving supply chain efficiency, and ensuring regulatory compliance.
