Camsecure's formula wins multiple awards

March 2010 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

Solutions-based security technology company, Camsecure, is turning heads in the market. With respect to the cliché, it is obvious that both business partners and clients are impressed with the work of this skilled team. Should you walk into its reception room, a plethora of awards gives testimony to the fact that you are talking to people who understand their product and their market.

For some years now, technical director, Francois Malan and his team have quietly partnered with leading international technology brands, providing highly effective security solutions to many of South Africa’s leading businesses. Malan believes firmly that his company’s success is largely due to the fostering of these partnerships.

In fact, Camsecure currently maintains the largest Axis and Milestone video IP system on the continent.

The IP link

Malan says the story of the company’s success all began with the introduction of IP video. “We started this business when both AXIS and Milestone were just launching their IP product offering into the South African market. In a sense, Camsecure was born out of the IP surveillance technological revolution,” says Malan. He maintains he has always believed in the IP concept, despite huge initial negativity from the market towards the technology.

“We believed IP would take off and it did, and now, those very people that turned their backs on IP are inundating us with requests to learn from our expertise.”

“We are now consulting with the big players,” remarks Malan. “Businesses are realising that we are the ones to speak to; we are the ones with the knowledge and skills.”


While Camsecure’s core focus is IP video surveillance, the company also focuses on access control, thermal imaging, X-ray scanners and, of course, the integration of these systems. It is also one of the first companies to do a major HD quality TV camera surveillance installation of over a 150 high definition cameras. “We are pioneering HD TV,” says Malan. “This is exceptional quality in surveillance never seen before.” HD TV technology combined with new compression techniques and video analytics software are all trends of the future that Camsecure is currently focusing on to create world-class systems for its clients.

What the market says . . .

“Camsecure has been a model partner in the Milestone global eco-system. It has engaged fully with the open platform IP video concept, taking all the certification training over the years and building up its expertise to the top levels. This, coupled with the tremendous experience it’s garnered implementing diverse and complex installations across all industry sectors, makes it a top choice for anyone looking for optimal security solutions.”

Courtney Dillon Pedersen, Milestone.

“In the Camsecure installation process and its after-service, we have had attention and back-up from the whole company, anytime. That is why we are still using the same system from the same partner.”

George Cohen, MD of the Saxon Boutique and Spa.

“ADI has worked closely with Camsecure on various projects, large and small and has found it to be of the highest standard regarding customer service. Its follow through and after care service on the various projects it has worked on with us, has clearly proven the efficiency and dedication of its team. Its knowledge of its products and those going hand in hand with theirs are continuously built on and supported. The Camsecure team make a point of getting to know the ins and outs of their suppliers regarding the various brands to ensure their customers receive the very best the market has to offer.”

Andrew Stead, ADI regional general manager, Sub Saharan Africa.

“Camsecure proves to be one of Axis’ most committed and solution-orientated resellers. It has demonstrated expertise in the areas of consulting, implementation and total integration with the use of Axis products. Camsecure operates as an extremely proficient, courteous and professional company with solid market knowledge.”

Roy Alves, country manager, Axis Communications.
