Japan's Secom to break into home security in China

Low-cost service to be delivered through partnership with Haier

Secom security personnel will be sent to a home when an intruder is detected.

TOKYO -- Secom intends to expand into the Chinese home security business in about two years by working with the Haier group.

The major Chinese electronics maker offers a smart-home service that allows customers to control temperature, lighting and other conditions in their homes from such internet-connected devices as smartphones. This service has been rolled out at a pace of about 60,000 to 70,000 households a year.
