Expanding the installers’ and SIs’ business

Residential Security Handbook 2021: Secure Living Residential Estate (Industry)

Around the world, residential customers are crying out for innovative new security technologies that help them boost intrusion protection and reduce their operating costs. “With AcuSense technology from Hikvision, integrators and installers can meet this demand and grow their share of the residential and SMB security market,” says Kevin You, product management director at Hikvision.

Homeowners have always looked to technology to improve their operations, security and efficiency. Now service providers can help them achieve all these goals with the latest, AI-powered security cameras, NVRs and DVRs.

With AcuSense, installers and integrators can help customers upgrade to innovative, AI-powered security capabilities at only a small incremental cost to their business. And because they can achieve major security improvements and efficiency gains with AcuSense, customers’ buying decisions are typically easy to justify and quick to deliver a return on investment (ROI).

Offering AcuSense-enabled cameras, NVRs and DVRs to customers benefits your business in three key ways.

1. Increase your market share

Tough economic conditions are driving technology innovation in the residential and SMB security market where customers urgently need technologies that boost security capabilities while also reducing manual workloads and operating costs.

AcuSense technology from Hikvision meets these needs with advanced AI features that support faster, more effective responses to security incidents, with a fraction of the manual work needed for manual CCTV monitoring. With the ability to differentiate between humans, vehicles and other moving objects, AcuSense reduces costly false positives for your customers, enables end users to verify real security threats immediately and automates video searches to save hours on manual video reviews.

All this means that making a business case for AcuSense is very easy for most homeowners and that customers typically achieve rapid ROI on their investments. This, in turn, makes customers’ buying decisions easy and speeds up the sales cycle and time to revenue for your business.

2. Deliver more value

While AcuSense technology delivers a range of value-added features for customers, Hikvision’s AI-powered cameras, NVRs and DVRs are also simple to install and configure. This means that you can deliver the security and efficiency benefits of AI security to your customers quickly and easily, without additional training requirements for your staff.

In part, installation is so easy because the Motion Detection 2.0 function of AcuSense-enabled cameras and DVRs is turned on by default. This means that accurate human and vehicle detection is possible with no additional configuration.

3. Meet all security requirements

With AcuSense, you can meet all of your customers’ security requirements, including video monitoring and intrusion alarms, with a single supplier and device architecture. As well as providing video footage 24x7, AcuSense-enabled cameras, NVRs and DVRs trigger alarms to end users’ mobile phones in the event of a security breach. Additionally, some AcuSense-enabled cameras in the Hikvision range include sound and strobe-light alarms to startle intruders and stop them in their tracks before losses or damage occur.

The benefit of meeting customers’ security needs with a single supplier is clear. In particular, single-supplier solutions are simpler to design, procure, install, configure and support, making your entire project and business simpler. You and your customers also get a single point of responsibility and support for the end-to-end security solution, improving efficiency and convenience.
