We do not track employee counts that closely so I am not sure. Note: TSP includes access and intrusion divisions, not just video. I think UTC Security and Honeywell Security are in a similar range of employees as TSP.
Since Tyco Security does access control too, I'm not sure the "asian camera vendors are eating our lunch" problem applies. Since they've done (more or less recent) acquisitions I think that a minor layoff could be a classic "assimilation" artifact.
If it is an 'assimilation' artifact, the way they have handled it is awfully poor, especially coming right after the end of the quarter, which signals missed numbers and weakened outlook. Also, no one close to the company has yet claimed to us that it was due to 'assimilation'.
