Johnson Controls enhances PowerG line with new detectors and sensors

MILWAUKEE (April 9, 2019) – Johnson Controls has expanded its PowerG technology portfolio to include the addition of several new detectors and sensors offering installers a greater variety of devices that harness the power of PowerG.

Enhancements to the PowerG portfolio include a 360-degree ceiling mount PIR detector, commercial magnetic contact, carbon monoxide detection and vanishing door / window magnetic contact, just to name a few. With the absence of wires, PowerG is able to securely perform many of the functions of a wired system, with new updates being made continuously. From long-range ceiling mount detection to smoke and heat detection, PowerG provides the power of wires without the wires.

PowerG is the leading wireless security technology, designed with homes and businesses in mind. With the addition of new enhancements, PowerG is continuing to make end-users’ lives more secure and convenient while cutting installation time and saving money for installers.

“There once was a time where wired solutions were deemed the most secure and, in turn, were the ones chosen,” said Jennifer Doctor, senior director of Product Management, Tyco Security Solutions. “PowerG gives users the peace of mind that comes with an encrypted, wired solution, but eliminates the hassle of wires. With the added detectors and sensors, PowerG rivals that of traditional intrusion systems.”

With ultra-reliable, two-way 128-bit AES encrypted communication and iron-clad protection that blocks interference, PowerG delivers unparalleled cyber protection features – ensuring reliable performance with minimum false alarms. For more information, visit
