Who is MCDI?
MCDI is still doing Alarm Receivers and Monitoring Software like it did back in 1994 when founded in Montreal Canada. Our mission is to help you start a Central Station (Alarm Receiving Centre) or to help you grow by providing the best equipments and software applications.
We have been at it for over 20 years so we know a thing or two about Central Stations. Our customer base goes from start ups to confirmed Security Companies. Chances are your competitors are using one of our products as we shipped more than 10,000 alarm receivers and more than 5000 are using our monitoring software.
Many will remember the game changer TLR isa receiver card and SAMM software. Prior to MCDI’s TLR, receivers where big, bulky and expensive. MCDI changed this by thinking outside the box, by in fact removing the box and using PCs for power and housing of the Alarm receivers. We still talk to customers running them 20 years later.
Along the years we made several more receivers on PC boards namely TLR+, Exprecium 1,2,3 and now Exprecium D for PCI or PCI-e slots.
MCDI added it’s first external receiver the SA-TLR+ back in 1997. It was followed by EXSA, Decrypta 1-2 and 3 and now our flagship Decrypta 4. All of them have distinctive designs far from the traditional black boxes.
In 2008 MCDI introduced a line named Extrium. With embedded linux and powerful ARM processors, Extrium receivers offer more features including notifications to Android phones, Alarms over IP and embedded web servers. Extrium is now ready for new pure IP receivers like DT42.
On the software side the popular SAMM was replaced by WinSAMM at the turn of the century. WinSAMM gave room to SECURITHOR back in 2009. Now at version 2.1, SECURITHOR brings new features such as Virtual Panic Buttons, Web Access for subscribers and Weboperator.
No Monitoring software company can say it has more installations and customers as varied as MCDI.
