HILLS is distributing UTC’s Tecom C4 integrated open software solution that allows installers and end users to bring multiple systems together in a single interface. 

C4 is a single interface that allows management of all security systems, access control, intrusion and CCTV, whether locally or remote. 

Operators can drive and manage all their systems from a single interface, no matter the manufacturer, and there are multiple reporting options, too. Behind the scenes is an MS SQL database with Open DataBase connectivity.

What’s neat about C4 is the huge list of integration drivers that have already been written and the fact new drivers can be written using integrated tools. The simple nature of setup is a bonus, too – SEN recently had a demo of C4 and came away impressed with the system's combination of simplicity and deep functionality. 

“I think C4 is disruptive not just revolutionary,” said UTC’s Gabriel Daher. “It allows integrators, installers and end users to combine multiple existing systems seamlessly and manage them from a single interface on a single workstation with no compromise to functionality.”

Hill’s CEO David Lenz said the Hills team was delighted to be taking on distribution of C4. 

“C4 is an excellent solution that fits a quality distributor like Hills perfectly,” Lenz said.♦
