We founded NW in November 2004. The founding members share 15 years of IP video experience between them at the time of inception.
The year in which we launched the UK’s first specialist IP camera store www.networkwebcams.co.uk. We sell our first IP camera on the day of launch. It was an Axis 205.
Early that year we also completed our first system installation. It was for Freightliner Group at their Coatbridge and Leeds container terminals. Freightliner is still a key customer today with hundreds of Axis cameras across their sites.
Half-way through 2005 we launched our hosted video solutions RemoteManager and Streamdays. Both become an instant success.
We achieve growth of 225% and put NW Systems on the map within the UK’s security industry.
Networkwebcams.co.uk is expanded into Continental Europe and exports become an integral part of our business.
At the same time our success is being acknowledged with the UK Axis Growth Partner of the year 2007 award. We have firmly established NW as a key player in the UK security market.
A landmark arrived in August when we sell our 10,000th IP camera.
Streamdays2 launches in August. Live camera streaming over the web at 30 frames per second and at an affordable price became available for the first time. Millions of people view webcams hosted by Streamdays every year.
A good year for NW Systems in which we posted our best-ever UK sales and also won the Milestone Partner of the Year 2013 award.
We take over Finetra’s entire customer base in a deal that sees Streamdays become the leading camera streaming service in the UK.
A second major landmark in April: 50,000 IP cameras sold since our inception.
A technology first: we complete one of the first fully IP-based, CCTV and Access Control integrated security systems in the UK.
