Matsuo Sangyo Co., Ltd.

Our line-alarm system shoplifting prevention devices have a 60% share of the domestic Japanese market.

Our company manufactures and sells Losscon products for articles displayed at electronics retail stores and so on. These products are security devices in which a sensor switch is attached to a displayed product. An alarm is set off when the sensor switch is taken off or the cord is pulled out. These devices have already acquired a share of more than 60% of the domestic Japanese line-alarm system security market. We provide all after sales services including installation, operating instructions, follow-up, and maintenance. Our motto is “ship today's order within the day,” and we try to complete the shipment even when the order is very sudden. We aim to increase our sales in emerging countries and other overseas countries by developing rechargeable type products.

[Strength of products/technologies]
Up to five units can be connected with a LAN cable, and can be operated with a single AC adapter. The control lamp is equipped with a receiver for the remote control. You can hide the unit inside a fixture to avoid tampering. Operation of the unit such as power on/off, alarm off, and reset is possible by putting the control lamp on the fixture. The unit continues monitoring in backup mode (runs on batteries). It gives off an alarm if anything unusual is observed even when the breaker has dropped (at night), power is cut off, or the AC power cord is pulled out. Another excellent feature is the reset function after an alarm goes off due to a fallen sensor switch or other reasons. The alarm goes off again 90 seconds later if the cause is not resolved by moving the sensor switch back to the original position, and so on. The alarm will ring again as soon as it is turned on even if the alarm is stopped by turning off the power.

[Joint research and development]
Our Convey input support device for physically disabled persons was developed as a result of joint efforts with the Ariake National College of Technology and Omuta Hospital (national hospital). This jointly developed product is aimed at improving quality of life for people with intractable neurological diseases, with a focus on muscular dystrophy and ALS. Convey allows the user to register and operate five remote-control functions, and activate a bell-ringing device (ringing the bell requires a separate conversion cable). The switch can be selected from four types, including joystick types (large, medium, and small), and a miniature type. The joystick type switches function regardless of the tilt angle, over a range of virtually 360 degrees. They are also designed to be activated with a small amount of force, so the user can operate them using the neck, chin, foot, or other body parts.
