Based in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, UTC Climate, Controls & Security was created by splitting up UTC Building & Industrial Systems into two segments, Otis and UTC Climate, Controls & Security. Otis provides elevator and escalator manufacturing installation, while UTC Climate, Controls & Security’s brands provide building technologies, heating and cooling, fire safety and security and refrigeration products and services.
Through its brands, UTC Climate, Controls & Security dates back to 1818, when Jeremiah and Charles Chubb patented the world’s first detector lock. In 1881, Robert Edwards patented the first electric alarm bell. In 1902, Willis Carrier developed and later patented the first modern air conditioner. And in 1917, Walter Kidde founded the Walter Kidde Company, which produced the first integrated smoke detection and carbon dioxide extinguishing system for use on board ships.
