Focus on mobile surveillance
May 2016, CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, Conferences & Events
Elvey Security Technologies took advantage of its iLegal 2016 sponsorship to highlight the range of Heitel mobile surveillance storage systems it has on offer. Transportation and logistics has become a prime target for criminals in South Africa, resulting in the need to develop innovative security solutions to protect people, vehicles and assets while in transit as well as in the warehouse.
The Heitel mobile NVRs, including the entry-level CamDisc E, are designed to make surveillance while on the move simple and reliable. The CamDisc supports the transmission and recording of four IP video cameras, and has a 1 TB hard drive integrated into the system for video and GPS data storage. It also supports bi-directional audio streams, allowing communications between a control centre and the driver.
Customers can also choose to include 3G or 4G communications to transfer data to a control centre from the vehicle under surveillance, or they can add a 4-channel analogue video card to support existing analogue cameras.
Francois Smuts was one of the Elvey team members on the stand, where he was able to inform visitors of the benefits Heitel solutions offer and show a number of videos demonstrating the technology in action. Elvey also highlighted the Dahua camera range, a few of which were also on the display.
Elvey supplies a full range of surveillance products apart from the Heitel brand. It can provide clients with a variety of professional and specialised cameras, monitors, switches encoders and decoders, as well as the cabling required as the foundation for a surveillance project. Understanding the requirement for integrated solutions, Elvey also provides a selection of market leading products and solutions in the intrusion, access control, fire protection and communications markets.
He adds that Elvey not only distributes surveillance equipment, but has a proven support methodology built up over the years. Its value-add stretches down to the branch level where it is able to cater to the needs of installers and integrators, assisting them in various areas of the sales and implementation process. Smuts says Elvey is successful when its channel partners and their clients succeed.
The distributor also places a strong focus on training to ensure its channel has the skills required to implement and maintain products effectively. Apart from Elvey’s in-house training programmes focused on a variety of products, it is also an official partner for Tavcom training in South Africa. Tavcom Training is an international provider of accredited online and classroom security training courses which cover CCTV, access control, intruder alarms and more.
