With 2,365,782 security officers registered – of which over 498,435 are employed by just over 9,000 registered and active security businesses, South Africa has one of the most mature security markets. Over the last 17 years, the number of registered and employed security officers grew by 157% and the number of security businesses by 65% (Source: Annual Performance Plan 2018/2019 of PSIRA – Private Security Industry Regulatory Authority of South Africa). Furthermore, South Africa represents the gateway to the Sub-Saharan region, where some countries are now living a fast paced and promising growth. Data are showing the importance of investing in this amazing country and confirm how crucial is a show like Securex for the whole industry. Customer centric software solutions Arteco software solutions are customer-centred and offer an engaging experience of control over the monitored area"“Arteco confirmed its commitment to the African market and aims at strengthening its position through collaborations with the main distributors of the country. The success we had at the booth is an interesting sign of the way security professionals see the market, which coincides with ours: people make the difference, and this is why we are proud to say that Arteco is a company of people,” says Dean Sichelschmidt, Arteco’s Country Manager for South Africa. “In our booth we showcased our view of the security industry: Arteco software solutions, indeed, are meant to be customer-centred and offer an engaging experience of control over the monitored area. For us, it means designing and developing software that, through a single interface, provides a complete view on the system, integrating security devices and third parties’ software, so as to go far beyond security.” Real-time access to events With Arteco Next current interface, every security operator can create his/her personal camera views The advantages Arteco offers for offsite monitoring are undeniable: with Arteco Next current interface (in the future with Arteco Omnia), every security operator can create his/her personal camera views and have real time access to events. The intuitive use, the friendly design and the simple drag-and-drop function guarantee full access (both input and output) to any device included. Meanwhile, the event-oriented structure of the software allows for an immediate match of notifications coming from all the device set in a single area: thus, the level of situational awareness is exponentially increased to give a more precise and rapid answer. How is it possible? Through the integration platform called Open Connector, Arteco is able to open its software to the many players of the industry that choose to become our partners. Intrusion and fire detection, perimetral and access control, temperature sensors and thermal cameras: these are just some of the many integrated systems Arteco can offer to create a real custom-made solution.

The conference will be held at the Gallagher Convention Centre in Johannesburg, where Arteco will showcase its line of highly streamlined Video Event Management Software (VEMS) systems, Open Connector and Event Analytics. Securex 2016 Africa’s largest security and fire trade exhibition will host industry experts, manufacturers and attendees from nearly 30 countries around the globe. Arteco will be engaging with its established network of integrators and distributors in the region to showcase its highly streamlined, open platform solutions that integrate with video surveillance camera networks, access control, building automation, fire safety and general alarm systems. The African security market is developing at an exponential rate, filled with complex security dilemmas that are cropping up as a result of booming business growth and infrastructural development in countless vertical markets. South Africa’s surveillance market was specifically estimated to be worth approximately $107 million USD in 2014, and is forecast to grow at roughly 2 percent CAGR over the following 5 years (Source: IHS). Event Properties Panel Adding to their library of event management tools, Arteco will be debuting the Event Properties Panel, an enhanced GUI panel designed to increase the user experience for Arteco NEXT, Open Connector and Event Analytics customers. The panel, designed with control rooms and guards in mind, features a more structured way to manage real-time event notifications and permits end users to customise or change event properties according to their needs. Attendees will also have the chance to make contact with local distributors and learn about our new event properties panel that further streamlines processes and realizes a proactive security modality. Expanding South African surveillance market “With a considerable amount of growth and development happening in the South African region and on the African continent, Arteco is ideally positioned to be able to offer scalable, interoperable VEMS and analytics solutions that cater to the specific surveillance and security needs in this market,” said Dean Sichelschmidt, Country Manager, South Africa, Arteco. “We’re excited to participate in Securex with our seasoned distributor channel to show current and future customers the proactive, flexible power with which Arteco software can transform situational awareness.”
