Linear Integrates RF Devices Brand
Linear, Carlsbad, Calif., a provider of residential and commercial access control, emergency response and security solutions, announced the consolidation of Secure Wireless Inc. All Secure Wireless operations will be integrated with those of Linear during the second half of 2012. Secure Wireless will remain an important product offering and brand in the Linear portfolio, the company stated.
Founded in 2002, Secure Wireless is a manufacturer of radio frequency (RF)-based transmitters and receivers, with a core emphasis on supplying RF devices to a growing number of OEM partners. The company’s products are used in both residential and commercial applications and wireless consumer products.
“The integration of Secure Wireless strengthens Linear’s RF development capabilities while giving us more flexibility to meet the demands of our commercial security and access control customers,” said Duane Paulson, senior vice president of product and market development for Linear. “Linear is already a leader in wireless security solutions but this consolidation gives us more resources to pursue other segments through innovation and product development.”
Secure Wireless customers will benefit from Linear’s training and technical support teams, and, will be unaffected by the consolidation, the company said. The Secure Wireless sales team remains the primary liaison for the product line. Technical and customer support functions, along with other business operations, will be combined at Linear’s headquarters in Carlsbad and at its manufacturing facility in Grand Rapids, Mich.
