Essence Group Enters into Partnership with GRAEF Gruppe

Through the newly announced agreement GRAEF Gruppe will distribute MyShield standalone connected smoke-generating intruder intervention products in Germany.  

HERZLIYA, Israel–Essence Group, a technology group developing and supplying wireless, cloud-based security solutions for homes and businesses, has announced its partnership with GRAEF Gruppe, a German security service provider.

GRAEF Gruppe is an organization with a consortium of eight specialized security companies. Through the consortium the German company will distribute and implement Essence’s MyShield standalone connected smoke-generating intruder intervention solution throughout Germany.

“Collaborating with Essence Security goes beyond a business partnership: we are combining our relative strengths in the security market to elevate standards and safely secure properties across Germany,” says Peter Graeff, CEO of GRAEF Gruppe. “Together with Essence, we are ensuring maximum client satisfaction and visibility through various channels to ensure all parties receive full support in installing MyShield. Through this partnership, we are delivering tangible benefits to our clients and their customers, from installation to implementation.”

Essence Group Alliance with GRAEF Gruppe Provides Germany with More Security Options

Under the partnership, GRAEF Gruppe will distribute MyShield through its network of security installers throughout Germany, incorporating the proactive smoke security system into major security projects to meet the growing demand for increased protection. The partnership will offer comprehensive support through webinars, trainings, tradeshows, and personalized consulting, especially for large-scale tenders and projects.

The Essence Group states that its device fills a room with a veil of harmless yet disorienting smoke in about 30 seconds, forcing intruders off premises before they can cause harm to people or property. The Israeli-based company boasts that MyShield acts as a ‘first responder,’ significantly narrowing the window of time in which intruders can operate and providing an enhanced level of security to residential and commercial users — particularly advantageous in high-risk environments where rapid response is crucial.

For security installers, Essence Group continues, MyShield has the capacity to offer protection against intruders including places where local power or communication is unavailable such as foreclosures, unrented or unoccupied offices, rental spaces, or even holiday homes lying dormant for extended periods. Essence Group claims the combination of motion detection, video verification and smoke intervention makes MyShield suited for these situations as well as many others.

“With police response times around the world increasing, it is critical individuals have the power to intervene immediately when intrusions occur,” comments Dr. Haim Amir, CEO of Essence Group. “MyShield was created and designed to help stop crime before first responders arrive on the scene, enhancing customer safety. GRAEF is an essential partner in making intervention solutions like MyShield widely available. We are thrilled to be expanding our presence across Germany with a partner that shares our commitment to providing peace of mind for German home and business owners.”

Essence Group adds that it designed MyShield to provide dealers with an easy-to-install battery-powered system includes an integrated motion detector, high-definition video camera to eliminate false alarms, and voice announcement. The product also utilizes cellular IoT networks and it can be used as a standalone app-based solution or integrated into existing security and professional monitoring systems. The low-maintenance device can be easily moved to ensure properties have 24/7 security on demand for reliable protection.
