STANLEY Security and 3xLOGIC, Inc., today announced a definitive agreement where 3xLOGIC will assume ownership of research and development, technical support and certain marketing activities for products developed under the Sonitrol® brand. The focus of the transaction will be to bring the combined strengths of 3xLOGIC and STANLEY Security to the development and delivery of innovative Sonitrol-branded products. In addition 3xLOGIC, Inc. will take ownership of the operations at the Orlando, Florida, Sonitrol facility. The agreements forming the relationship went into effect as of June 1, 2014.
The partnership further enhances 3xLOGIC’s reach and influence in the security industry, bringing 3xLOGIC’s innovative video verification and unrivaled mobile capabilities to complement the industry-leading audio alarm verification brand, Sonitrol, and its global network of franchisees.
“Sonitrol recently celebrated 50 years dedicated to verified security solutions,” says Matthew Kushner, 3xLOGIC’s CEO. “Their unprecedented success is built upon a foundation provided by their patented audio verification capabilities, long recognized as the pinnacle in the industry. Yet, as the complexity of security solutions expands, adding video verification and anywhere, anytime access will enable the Sonitrol network to better address the ever-changing marketplace they confront.”
“STANLEY Security is excited to bring together such an elite partnership. The modular, scalable security solutions, including the industry leading audio verification technology that Sonitrol can bring to the table, paired with 3XLOGIC’s distinctive video analytics will create a new niche in the security market,” says Jeremy Morton, STANLEY Security’s VP of Software & Controls.

Note: In July of 2008, Stanley Convergent Security Solutions, Inc. [a subsidiary of Stanley Black & Decker, Inc. (NYSE: SWK) (f/k/a The Stanley Works)] headquartered in Naperville, Illinois, purchased all shares and equity of Sonitrol Corporation, Inc. along with the rights of the Sonitrol brand as the Sonitrol franchisor. The acquisition included a Sonitrol corporate customer base of approximately 55,000 accounts. The acquisition of Sonitrol Corporation by Stanley CSS did not include the independent Sonitrol franchise businesses. These businesses act independently, being solely owned and operated as Sonitrol franchises across North America. The independent franchises provide Sonitrol security products and solutions, including Sonitrol access control and Sonitrol audio verification intrusion protection in their designated territories. Although Stanley CSS and its franchise partners are separate entities, we all share the common goal of promoting and providing Sonitrol products and services across North America. In some markets Stanley CSS operates its own corporately owned branch offices; but in locations where an authorized Sonitrol franchise also operates – you can only purchase Sonitrol products and services through the franchise.
