PETALING JAYA: Malaysians should invest in a burglar alarm system because it will be less costly than when a break-in occurs, said Deputy Science, Technology and Innovation Minister Datuk Kong Cho Ha. 

“It's not just to protect the loss of property but, in extreme cases, also loss of precious human live.  

“These losses will cost more than the alarm system. 

“It's always better to be safe than sorry,” he said at a press conference after launching Infotech Accord Sdn Bhd's Securitech Ultralite Home Systems at a hotel here yesterday. 

He also advised local companies to work on their branding and create a sense of security and confidence in their products in order to “succeed locally and globally.” 

“Consumers go for foreign brand names due to lack of confidence in local brands. 

“Local technopreneurs should provide good after-sales service to give consumers that sense of security,” Kong added. 

Infotech Accord managing director Lee Che Chen said the company hoped to sell 3,000 to 4,000 units monthly locally and 20,000 units (or RM20mil in value) in the China market.
