Access Automation Giant CENTURION Acquires MyGSM

Leading South African access automation company Centurion Systems recently acquired MyGSM, a company specialising in the development of GSM-based products.

Pat Dickens, managing director for leading South African access automation manufacturer CENTURION, recently announced the successful acquisition of MyGSM, a company specialising in GSM-based products.

This acquisition will result in MyGSM's two primary products being added to CENTURION's repertoire, while Andre Geyser - who previously worked for MyGSM as an electrical engineer - will assist CENTURION's Research and Development team in developing new products.

CENTURION is also joined by Christo Wentzel, formerly the managing member of the newly-acquired company.

"We are excited by this acquisition which we know will strengthen our position in the GSM market", says Mr Dickens.

CENTURION, while mostly known for their high-quality gate automation products, released their own GSM product known as the G-SWITCH-22 - so named because it provides two inputs and two outputs - some two years ago. The acquisition of MyGSM is certain to expand this range by an incredible margin.

The two main products manufactured by MyGSM are a two input, two output GSM module and an eight input, eight output model, both of which can be employed to monitor and control a wide range of electrical appliances. Typical applications for GSM products include triggering of an electric gate via missed call or text message, arming and disarming of alarms from anywhere in the world, monitoring of water reservoir levels, etc.

MyGSM also a offers a secure web portal from which users can easily set up and administer their modules, add, edit and delete numbers and enable transaction logs for improved security. Time periods can also be set up whereby automatic activations can occur at specified times, or numbers can be barred from working, a feature which makes these products ideal for applications such as bed and breakfasts.
