SCHURTER supports World Challenge student

SCHURTER Electronics have recently been approached by a local student looking for support for a worthy cause, The World Challenge 2019. With our help and fundraising events, we aim to raise funds to support Eleanor Stevens on her once in a lifetime journey to China.

Message from Eleanor

My name is Eleanor Stevens and I am a 16 year old student currently in my final two years at Waddesdon Church of England School in Buckinghamshire.

World Challenge encourages young people to build on their life skills, attitudes towards others and take them out of their comfort zone and experience what other countries have to offer. It is also about giving back, as part of the challenge involves the local community.

Through this organisation and my school, I will be taking part in a four week expedition to China in the summer of 2019. This involves trekking through rural Tibetan villages, camping out and pushing myself to the limits before engaging in a community project.

The community project I have chosen allows me to fully immerse myself in the community's way of life, by living and working alongside local people. As part of this project, I will be teaching English at the village school.

Not only will this challenge significantly benefit the local community, it will also provide me with some real life experience and teach me independence and important life lessons. To take part in this incredibly worthwhile project, I have to raise £4,850.

SCHURTER Electronics are helping me raise funds for this once in a lifetime trip to China. This involves sponsorship and support from the business with raising awareness of my fundraising activities.

In return for this, I will be supporting SCHURTER with my knowledge in graphic design and helping the marketing team with creative input.

Design the ideal touchscreen solution for your security system

Security systems in the home and workplace are rapidly changing. As the age of the smart building and home approaches, building owners are becoming increasingly uninterested in a small keypad that only enables a code to arm and disarm a building's alarm.

The Control Panel

A touchscreen enabled device is user friendly and can offer the complete needs of the user's lifestyle and requirements. By incorporating a touch solution as the control panel, the security measures offers ease and familiarity to the user.

A system that comprises of just motion sensors and magnetic door contacts is rapidly becoming a thing of the past. Owners increasingly demand a flexible system where they decide what they require. The possibility to add video cameras, control lights, replay video clips, take pictures, communicate with emergency services or even control the thermostat. There is no other interface device more suitable for this than the touchscreen.


SCHURTER is a leading designer and manufacturer of touchscreens and displays. Our unique knowledge of all the required components allows it to design and manufacture the perfect solution for a security control panel. This can include:

All of the combined in an attractive, sleek small footprint housing, ideal for a home or workplace setting.
