IDIS and GardaWorld announced the successful installation rollout of IDIS video surveillance technology across multiple sites in the United States and Canada. The existing installations include more than 800 IDIS cameras and recorders, a number that will continue to grow with ongoing and planned installations in 2017.

IDIS DirectCX analogue and DirectIP technology

The international installations feature customised combinations of latest generation technology from IDIS, including analogue and IP networked cameras and recorders and powerful IDIS video management software (VMS), scaled and customised across 250+ sites, including those in large, small, urban, and rural environments, both upgrades and new installations.

More than 800 IDIS cameras, recorders, and the establishment of two major central monitoring facilities reflect a seamless integration of IDIS DirectCX analogue and DirectIP technology, and the powerful agility of IDIS’s most powerful and flexible VMS, IDIS Solution Suite. Both the larger solution and individual site installations were customised to meet specific requirements for each site, while IDIS’s signature ease of installation and use minimised installation time, headaches, and effectively eliminated downtime for the 24/7 security solutions provider.

Agile and flexible surveillance solution

“The safety and security of both our customers’ assets and the employees in our GardaWorld family is our paramount concern”

“GardaWorld’s reputation as a global leader in the security space preceded it and it has been our honour to partner with them to maximise safety and security through next-generation surveillance,” said Andrew Myung, President of IDIS America. “IDIS has made our mark over 20 years in the surveillance industry providing a complete range of agile, flexible, single-sourced surveillance solutions, able to meet any need of any size.”

“Our work with GardaWorld—seamlessly incorporating DirectCX and DirectIP offerings, as needed to meet the requirements of multiple sites of differing size, while still delivering comprehensive situational awareness and an optimised surveillance posture to our client—is a true example of this differentiator. We are proud of what we have done with GardaWorld so far and look forward to our future work with this industry leader.”

Asset management and employee safety

Noted Guy Côté, Vice President and Chief Security Officer for GardaWorld, “GardaWorld is a known global leader in security, cash logistics, and cash management, with a reputation for excellence and customer satisfaction in all we do. The safety and security of both our customers’ assets and the employees in our GardaWorld family is our paramount concern. So, it is no exaggeration to say that our standards are high when it comes to the security solutions we, in turn, deploy to secure our own operations.”

“IDIS meets our high standards and more with a surveillance offering that is as committed to our security requirements as we are. IDIS technology delivers powerful features and capabilities in a variety of ways that meet needs as diverse as our differing locations and custom requirements. Whether analogue or IP networked solutions, new installations or upgrades, or at urban or remote sites, IDIS solutions have proven flexible, scalable, and customisable to deliver the appropriate technology in the ideal way for each requirement. We are pleased with the partnership we have created with IDIS over the past year and look forward to the continued benefit we’ll receive from current and planned installations of IDIS technology.”

Which security technology is most misunderstood, and why?
Which security technology is most misunderstood, and why?

The general public gets much of its understanding of security industry technology from watching movies and TV. However, there is a gap between reality and the fantasy world. Understanding of security technologies may also be shaped by news coverage, including expression of extreme or even exaggerated concerns about privacy. The first step in addressing any challenge is greater awareness, so we asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: Which security industry technology is most misunderstood by the general public and why?

Lessons Learned with Vanderbilt: How have you adapted to the COVID-19 pandemic?

With the postponement of tradeshows and events due to the effects of COVID-19, Vanderbilt and ComNet have taken their high quality, innovative solutions online, directly to their customer base. Through an Online Events and Training resource, you can stay connected with the brands’ top resources and products, as well as join upcoming product webinars hosted by their in-house experts. With a majority of the world currently working from home, businesses must respond to this changing landscape. As such, Vanderbilt and ComNet have turned to online resources to share new product demonstrations and other company news. One cornerstone of the ACRE brands approach was the launch of their Online Events and Training resource page. Ross Wilks, Head of Marketing Communications at Vanderbilt, credits this online resource as the anchor to their communicative success with customers at present. “Through weekly webinars delivered by our in-house experts, Vanderbilt and ComNet have embraced more virtual opportunities to continuously communicate to our customers regarding our latest and most relevant products,” he says. “To date, our webinars have covered a wide range of industry topics such as Why Physical Security and Cloud go together, and The most recent developments in card cloning and reader hacking. Attendance to these online events has proved popular and effective in keeping communication with our customer base open and engaging.” Each webinar ends with a Q&A section, as well as follow-up articles on the most asked questions, plus recordings of the webinars being made available to attendees. As such, the webinar approach has proven a receptive approach for Vanderbilt and ComNet. The Online Events and Training resource acts as a one-stop-shop for all virtual information. Overall, the page outlines the brands’ value-added resources for customers, including the ability to request a remote product demonstration, the availability of free online training, 24/7 access to the Vanderbilt webshop, plus the aforementioned weekly webinars. Vanderbilt and ComNet’s business mantra is built on a foundation of customer-focused core values such as empowerment, collaboration, and high performance and Wilks credits this mentality with their ability to keep information flowing to their base during the present pandemic. “The ACRE brands moved early to kick-start online webinars and ramp up awareness of their already existing online training and shopping options. Now more than ever, it is important to keep customers up to date on the latest offerings,” Wilks explains. “Our commitment has always been to make their customer’s security journey the best possible experience, and that is what this Online Events and Learning page primarily focuses on,” he concludes.

What’s new with video management systems (VMS)?
What’s new with video management systems (VMS)?

Video management systems (VMS) have been around almost since the advent of IP cameras. During those years, VMSs have evolved from software that provides basic functionality to more user-friendly systems offering a growing list of capabilities, many of them related to analysing data as well as recording and displaying video. But the evolution is far from over. We asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: What’s new with video management systems (VMS), and what are the new opportunities?
