The specter of Spector Lumenex continues to loom. Originally formed in 1985, the company was acquired by Tyco International in 2001. Today it is part of a family of brands held by UK subsidiary Tyco Fire & Integrated Solutions, or TycoFIS. TycoFIS designs, manufactures, and markets a slew of audio communications systems under the Spector Lumenex name. The lineup, used in industrial environments, caters primarily to the safety needs of the onshore and offshore oil, gas, and petrochemical industries. TycoFIS also designs and installs Spector Lumenex automated announcements, public address, fire telephony, and background music. Consulting and systems design services are provided as part of the offerings too.
