SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ProtechDNA, an innovative crime prevention company, and Aeris, a pioneer and leader in the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced they are collaborating to help law enforcement agencies in the U.S. reduce crime in their communities.

ProtechDNA, an Aegis company, is a pioneer of crime prevention technologies. ProtechDNA assists law enforcement agencies in their efforts to prevent property theft, engage with members of their communities and enhance officers’ safety.

ProtechDNA intends to launch several products this summer in cooperation with law enforcement agencies around the U.S. that are a critical component of ProtechDNA and Aeris’ efforts. ProtechDNA will introduce new high-tech global positioning satellite (GPS) tracking devices, enabled by the Aeris® IoT Solutions platform, which offer many features to assist law enforcement agencies in crime prevention in their communities.

In addition to the GPS tracking, ProtechDNA will introduce a new crime prevention program that will revolutionize security and provide a powerful tool to law enforcement and the neighborhoods they protect.

The collaboration between ProtechDNA and Aeris ensures that ProtechDNA devices have reliable IoT connectivity no matter where they are deployed in the U.S. This allows the devices to be remotely monitored and expedites deployment time.

ProtechDNA will install the Aeris global subscriber identity module (SIM) at the point of manufacture, reducing both supply-chain costs and deployment time. By utilizing Aeris’ single global access point name (APN), the ProtechDNA crime prevention system can also be deployed anywhere in the U.S., even in the most remote locations on a simple plug-and-play basis, removing the necessity to configure local network settings.
