tattletale, a portable alarm systems company based out of Westerville, Ohio, selected The Morey Corporation (MOREY), a leading EMS provider, to manufacture and fulfill the world's first portable, cellular-based security system for consumers.
tattletale's new consumer unit is designed so customers can easily self-activate the system and then protect a home or small business from up to 2,000 feet away from a self-contained, tamper-proof base unit. The unit is activated by simply plugging it in and pressing one button on the remote control. Additionally, it's portable so consumers can take it with them when they change addresses.
"We made the strategic decision to keep manufacturing partner operations onshore, and MOREY has an excellent reputation in the electronics industry--it's a great fit," says Brian Hess, Inventor and CEO of tattletale. "In addition to the consumer unit, we will look to MOREY to manufacture our complete suite of portable alarm products in the near future."
MOREY, who operates exclusively in Woodridge, Illinois, will provide comprehensive technology, manufacturing and fulfillment services for tattletale. tattletale chose MOREY for the company's deep expertise in wireless devices and for the myriad advantages of working with a manufacturer based in the US.
"We've seen a tremendous recent uptick in new inquiries for our services in 2010 from companies that are re-evaluating their offshore manufacturing strategy or no longer considering offshore," said Dana Morey, Executive Vice President for MOREY. "The key issue is learning to look at total cost of ownership, which includes everything from global shipping costs and product quality to six weeks of inventory sitting on a boat. We're excited to partner with tattletale on an exciting industry first in consumer security systems."
The consumer unit has multiple applications including residential, office, retail businesses and residential properties. The unit is scheduled to be available in September 2010 with volume ramp-up continuing throughout 2011. Technology partners include AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, Motorola, Secure Wireless, Numerex and other alarm dealers through ADI, a leading wholesale supplier of security products.
tattletale's primary business is the design, development, production and marketing of the world's first transportable, cellular security system with high performance wireless sensors. tattletale also provides 24-hour, nationwide wireless monitoring for every tattletale security system sold. tattletale employs a variety of proprietary design, construction and implementation techniques that give it the most technologically advanced products in its marketplace. All products are grounded in a portfolio of technology patents, and will continue to develop and patent new wireless technology as they grow their alarm product family.
Currently, tattletale has been awarded six U.S. patents addressing the hardware, technology, business methodology and trade-dress of tattletale products. tattletale's family of patents makes it impossible for a competitor to offer competing, transportable wireless alarm products.
