To celebrate the launch of 'ColourSmart' - our 24/7 colour CCTV camera from Concept Pro we invited local graffiti artist, Hyro to our HQ to create a one-of-a-kind mural. 

“The inspiration behind the artwork was the new camera by Concept Pro" said artist Hyro, "the mural depicts ColourSmart mixed with security and elements of CCTV". 

 

Working with Bolton based 'Total Productions', we were able to capture the piece being created from start to finish - which included the full colour imagery still clear and crisp into the early hours of the morning. 

Offering crystal clear images day and night, the new 5MP fixed lens turret is a stand out addition to the Concept Pro range. Combining deep learning technology, ColourSmart can drastically reduce false alarms compared to traditional motion detection due to being able to distinguish people and vehicles from other moving objects - therefore alerts are only sent for events that matter most.

It was a delight to welcome Hyro to our offices to create this fantastic piece of art to celebrate the launch of our new range of 24/7 full colour cameras” said our Managing Director, Matt Rushall

“The pandemic has been a tough time for everyone, so when we had the idea to have a mural at our head office to commemorate the launch of the ColourSmart – we didn’t think twice about bringing in a local artist to help boost the sector and showcase the talent that we have within our region.”

 

“Like everyone, the last year has been difficult and as an artist it has been difficult to find work" Hyro explains "but it’s great to see companies like Videcon supporting local artists and facilitating me to be able to do the thing I’m most passionate about. I enjoyed it and I’m glad how it turned out”.

The work with Hyro is the latest in a number of our local collaborations over the last 12 months and during the COVID-19 pandemic. Working with businesses, schools, and care homes throughout Yorkshire and beyond, we provided technology that helped limit the spread of Coronavirus, including; face-mask detection and temperature detection.

Going forward, we aim to support young people in the region by introducing a new apprenticeship scheme. The scheme, which begins in June next month offers young people a chance to gain experience in all aspects of the business covering; Sales, Finance, Marketing, Technical Support, Customer Services, and Operations.

The National Defence Authorization Act (NDAA) is a hot topic right now, especially in the European parliament. But what exactly is it and why should it matter to you?

Firstly, what is the NDAA?

The National Defence Authorisation Act, is US Government Legislature designed to prohibit the use of video surveillance, telecommunications services, equipment and components manufactured by specific vendors in order to quell threats posed to Cyber Security and in turn, security and surveillance. 

HiSilicon is a subsidiary of one of the vendors, Huawei, and are a major supplier of components across the whole CCTV industry for IP Cameras, Network Video Recorders and Digital Video Recorders

How do I know if I am installing NDAA compliant cameras?

A good place to start is by reading IPVM's Guide To The NDAA Video Surveillance Ban / Blacklists which provides a list of manufacturers affected by the ban.

How will the NDAA affect me?

Section 889 of the National Defense Authorisation Act doesn’t just prevent government organisations from deploying cameras manufactured by the blacklisted companies. It also bans them from conducting business with any organisation that is using them. This has serious implications for UK & European companies conducting business in a global landscape where organisations and operations are increasingly connected. UK & European based companies who are contemplating buying video surveillance products from one of the Section 889 listed manufacturers may find they come into difficulties It is also likely companies either connected to or with ownership in the US may enforce the procedures directed by section 889.

Furthermore, by choosing NDAA compliant cameras, your customers can be assured that their confidential data cannot be accessed, copied or tampered with - which is so important for GDPR!

NDAA compliant products at Videcon

Videcon are committed to cyber security and meeting the ever-changing requirements of the security industry. Our flagship Great British CCTV brand, Concept Pro, is developed in the UK and manufactured using South Korean technology and we remain committed to ensuring there is a complete range of NDAA compliant products, without HiSilicon components, in the Concept Pro range. 

We have also partnered with Uniview to provide a complete range of NDAA compliant CCTV products to our customers looking for an alternative solution,

When Ajax entered the market, they immediately set about disrupting it.

Building it from scratch, they combined previously non-existent technology with a functional and sleek design. Fully programmable via your Smart phone, tablet or desktop computer and featuring the Ajax jeweller wireless technology.  It allows devices to connect from up to

2000 metres away, increases battery life for up to 7 years, encrypts data, and transmits alarms from detectors to the hub within 0.15 seconds.

Since launch, Ajax has securely established itself as the smart number one choice for ambitious and modern home owners and those working in smaller spaces.  For the first time ever, an alarm system has become a fashion statement.

All accessible by sleek control panels and smartphone devices, the range includes:

  • Indoor Security
  • Outdoor Security
  • Fire Detection
  • Flood Prevention
  • Panic alarms

 

Any installer wishing to advance their business by offering the latest tech and smart modern solutions, is considering Ajax.  But a great product alone will not suffice.  With a network of 4 showrooms, online ordering with a cut off as late as 5.30pm for next day delivery, technical experts on hand and reliable stock availability, Videcon is the natural distribution partner for Ajax.

Matt Rushall, MD of Videcon commented “The Ajax range is amazing.  The combination of design and tech means that for the first time people actually care about their alarm systems as accessories and are enthusiastically searching out installers who can fit them.  We will support those installers within our community who want to grow their businesses on the back of Ajax.  We’ll do this by offering the same high level of service which has seen Ajax seek us out as their partner of choice.  It’s not rocket science; the installer community want quick delivery, reliable supply, great prices and ease of ordering.

That’s what we give them.”

Steve Norman of Ajax said of the partnership “Videcon are expert added value distributors with a reputation for honesty and ethical practices.

Very much in the mould of Ajax, they combine a forward thinking vision with in-depth knowledge of the local markets and product range.  Their whole purpose is to assist their communities to deliver best in class solutions. They do this with an outstanding service model which we know installers will love.”
