Sentronics to distribute Visec products

August 2009 News & Events

Visec Surveillance Systems, developer and distributor of licence-plate recognition software and surveillance systems has linked up with video surveillance distributor, Sentronics.

Gary Scagell, CEO of Visec, says, “Sentronics has a far-reaching distribution network and offers a broad range of hardware to the smaller channel market via systems integrators and resellers. Visec offers compatible software for network video recorders, remote viewers and back office systems as well as licence-plate recognition software which runs over IP (Internet Protocol). Combined, the two companies offer systems integrators, resellers and ultimately end users with a simple and comprehensive security solution.”

System integrators and resellers are now able to purchase the hardware with the compatible software through Sentronics as a bundle. “Visec software is compatible with most brands, and can support Sentronics, camera and optic products,” adds Scagell.

Visec offers security solutions in South Africa, USA, UK and Europe and distributes through global partnerships in over 60 countries. Over the next six months, Sentronics will be phased in as Visec’s main South African distribution partner.

Bernard Senekal, MD of Sentronics says, “We have managed to support multiple technology platforms through our chosen strategic partners, thereby improving operational efficiency across various verticals such as mining, retail and financial services sectors. In addition to forming the partnership with Visec, we will support its product internally and to the respective markets directly the way we know best.”

Prior to the Visec partnership, Sentronics also formed partnerships with Pelco and Axis Communications and has access to some of the most popular CCTV brands recognised globally. It distributes a wide variety of international manufacturers such as Arecont Vision, Vivotek, Sunell, Averdigi and Promise Technology.
