Smart R Distribution to launch CCTV division at The Security Event
Simon Shawley (pictured left), who recently joined Smart R Distribution in a business development role, says the exhibition will provide an ideal opportunity for the company to formally launch its new CCTV division.
“Many of the visitors to The Security Event will know of Smart R Distribution as a specialist distributor of Access Control, with specialist knowledge in cards and reader technology, but we have in fact been supporting CCTV products for some time.
"However, with both product sets now almost routinely being specified for the same projects, we believe the time is right for us to significantly increase our CCTV activities and work with installers and system integrators to generate new sales opportunities.”
Smart R Distribution is confident that by combining the industry knowledge of founding directors, Derek Clenshaw and Neill Williams with Simon’s extensive CCTV expertise, it will establish clear blue water between itself and other distributors by adding real value to the supply chain. The company takes pride in having built an enormously talented and highly trained pre and post sales team who are just one phone call away when installers and system integrators are looking for objective, professional advice on how to ‘put the right pieces together’ in terms of integrating Access Control and CCTV.
In addition to distributing and offering first line technical support for an extensive range of door entry and Access Control solutions from many of the electronic security industry’s leading manufacturers, Smart R Distribution is a distributor of Vivotek CCTV products. It is also one of just two UK distributors who are able to supply the keenly priced Wisenet L camera range manufactured by Hanwha Techwin.
“We are looking forward to presenting many of these products to existing and potential new customers who visit stand G70,” said Simon. “We will also take the opportunity to raise awareness of the new range of CCTV products from Comelit.”
