Conway Security Products partners with Hikvision Digital Technology

Conway's partnership helps integrators and end-users to benefit from Hikvision's product range UK CCTV manufacturer Conway Security Products are delighted to announce that they have become a Value-Added Solution Partner (VASP) of Hikvision Digital Technology Co., Ltd. The new agreement formalises a relationship that Conway and Hikvision have been growing for over two years and gives both companies new and exciting opportunities in what is one of the most technically-challenging eras of the CCTV industry. “We are very familiar with the Hikvision range and intend to use our relationship to develop new and complementary products that closely integrate with their product portfolio” said Conway’s co-managing director Ricky Oliver. “Customers are getting an overwhelming amount of technology thrust at them at the moment with IP and HD finally starting to come of age. We see our partnership with Hikvision as helping to get this technology out into the market and making it easier to achieve the results that it was intended to deliver”. Conway’s track record in the CCTV market goes back to 1986 so this is not the first technology revolution the company has seen.The ability to grasp the potential of technology products and produce complementary offerings to turn a good product into a great solution has always been the company’s core strength and this is the platform that the partnership is being built on. “This VASP Program was never built on box-shifting or logistics,” said Hikvision’s Tony Yang. “The phrase ‘Value-Added Solution Partner’ encapsulates everything that this relationship is about. Conway is able to add something to our range and turn products into the solutions that the market needs.” Conway will be part of a group of VASPs in the UK and Europe that will help integrators and end- users benefit from the current and future Hikvision range. Hikvision is a leading developer in CCTV and IP video surveillance and is driving product performance in megapixel and HD technology. Partners such as Conway will be an integral part of taking Hikvision products to probably the most discerning CCTV market in the world.

Conway’s CM230IR and CM230IR-EX deployed at a high-security correctional facility in New South Wales
Conway’s CM230IR and CM230IR-EX deployed at a high-security correctional facility in New South Wales

UK-based manufacturer Conway Security Products have supplied a large number of their custodial corner-mounted cameras as part of a refurbishment and updating project at a high-security correctional facility in New South Wales. The project called for Conway’s CM230IR, the standard corner-mounted camera, plus the external CM230IR-EX which has been fitted in the individual exercise yards attached to each high-security cell. Both the CM230IR and CM230IR-EX feature a day/night camera with a wide-angle lens which delivers exceptional room coverage, minimising any chance of blind spots. Conway supplied the units through their Australian partner Techniche Security & Surveillance. Lee Evans, Techniche’s Managing Director, said: “The fact that Conway produce all their units entirely at their own manufacturing base means they can be extremely responsive to specific requirements on major applications such as this one.  It was important that Conway were able to supply the second unit [the CM230IR-EX ] with a higher level of environmental protection so that the unit could be used externally. ” Lee continued: “By having a common core in terms of the optical components for these two units, the stockholding of spares is simplified. The Conway cameras score highly in terms of ease and speed of installation which are crucial at a prison where disruption to regular activities and engineers’ time on site must be minimised.” The flush-mounted front fascia of the CM230IR described here minimises the risk of the unit being used as a ligature point, a crucial consideration in the custodial sector. In addition to this prison application, the cameras are also being used at juvenile detention centres, custody suites, police premises and immigration detention centres throughout the UK and in Europe. The inclusion of energy-efficient 940nm IR LED illumination ensures that the camera can deliver high-quality pictures regardless of lighting conditions. 940nm IR is invisible to the naked eye, making it highly discreet. Observation of cell occupants who may be in a distressed state can continue for their own protection under dimmed lighting or even in complete darkness. An optional integrated microphone can provide audio monitoring. Sydney-based Techniche provide integrated building management and security-related systems throughout Australia. The company has wide-ranging expertise and products to call on and is able to offer consultative advice, system design and implementation in all aspects of physical security.

CCTV community supports charity golf day at Weston Turville Course
CCTV community supports charity golf day at Weston Turville Course

  The CCTV community raised funds for the Parasol and Mencap projects at a charity golf day held at Weston Turville Course  An annual golf day held at the Weston Turville Course near Aylesbury and supported by the CCTV community raised £2,000 for the Parasol Project and Mencap. The Parasol Project is an Oxford-based charity committed to redressing the balance for disabled and disadvantaged young people experiencing or at risk of social exclusion. Mencap National College, Lufton, is a residential further education college in Somerset which offers courses for students aged 16-25.The golf day is in its eleventh year and has raised over £25,000 in total.  The event was organised by a group of parents and volunteers from sponsoring companies. The sponsors included Conway Security Products, NatWest Bank , Aylesbury Honda, P&H, and Weston Turville Golf Club itself which has been most generous over the years by making the course available and waiving green fees.The event was won by a team captained by Dominic Hare who returned an impressive gross under-par total in the ‘Texas Scramble' format. As usual, Jeremy Rowe of NatWest not only drummed up competitors but played in the competition and acted as emcee. Conway Security Products was a principal sponsor and the security community was well represented by executives, engineers and media.Angela Taylor of the Parasol Project said: "We're extremely grateful for the funds raised by the golfers, and the money has been earmarked for supporting youth initiatives for 13-year-olds and upwards with inclusive activities during term time and school holidays."The PARASOL project was established in 1991 in response to a lack of play and recreation provision for disabled children and young people. Mencap National College, Lufton, provides education and care to young people aged 16 to 25 with a range of learning disabilities. Vocational options at the college include animal care and management, agriculture and horticulture.
