SMART homes solutions and security systems provider INIX Technologies Holdings Bhd is aiming to spread its wings to India and China this year as part of its strategy to widen its customer base, which now include Australia, Singapore and Indonesia.
The company, which invests heavily in research and development, is also working on a by-product of its core product - an integrated and intelligent wireless security, automation and closed-circuit television surveillance system for homes and business premises.
“We are working on video conferencing features to be incorporated in our existing core product,” chief executive officer Jimmy Tok told StarBiz.
The company is also in talks with a number of local manufacturers of electrical products such as air-conditioners and lighting.
“We want them to incorporate our technology into their products. This way, their products can come out of their factories, smart home-ready,” said Tok, adding that this would be a plus point for both the manufacturers and iNix.
“SecureSmith is a wireless system. That means not having to hack down walls to install wires and plugs to get the system working,” he said.
Tok said the system was sold in convenient do-it-yourself kits that could be installed by customers themselves.
“This saves a lot of labour cost,” he added.
On how the company increased its customer base, he said:” We work closely with housing developers who are keen on the intelligent home concept.”
The company is also in the midst of increasing its dealer network. Currently, it has about 20 dealers locally and aims to increase this to 50 this year.
“This year, we also plan to continue to build our brand name by holding road shows around the country,” said Tok.
Tok said he was confident that iNix would continue to generate healthy profits.
