Johnson Controls Security Integration Examined

By: John Honovich, Published on Nov 03, 2009

In November 2009, Johnson Controls (JCI) was awarded SDM's Security Integrator of the Year. Similar to other security awards, this award does not disclose who competed or what 'objective' measures were used to decide. Nonetheless, it is clear that JCI is making a major marketing push to expand its presence within the security industry.

Consistent with the current broad trend, JCI's strategy is to leverage its strength as a 'single-source provider' taking it another step further integrating physical security systems with building automation, business applications and information security.

From a revenue perspective, JCI reports that they "expect a nearly 7 percent increase in its security integration revenues in 2009, which are projected to reach $463 million, up from $433 million in 2008. (Growth from 2007 to 2008 was approximately 18 percent.)" This contradicts their September 2008 claims of almost tripling last year.
