NW Systems Group has been selected by Netherlands-based Video Surveillance as a Service (VSaaS) innovator Cameramanager.com to be its launching partner for UK online sales. From 3rd June 2013 Cameramanager.com services will be available for purchase from Networkwebcams.co.uk. NW Security, the UK-based group‘s integration arm, will also offer to install any Panasonic or Axis cameras that are required by UK Small and Medium-sized Businesses (SMBs) which will be targeted with the monthly subscription-based video surveillance service.
Cameramanager.com, which was purchased by Dutch telecoms group Detron Corporation in 2007, has grown rapidly and is serving over 50,000 camera connections. The organization is currently active in the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Germany, Poland, Switzerland, Brazil, Latvia, Russia and Turkey.
The revolutionary cloud-based camera surveillance solution is designed for SMBs such as shops or restaurants which do not want to pay to support and maintain video storage hardware such as DVRs or dedicated PCs holding several gigabytes of surveillance video images. Cameramanager.com makes it possible to manage your IP cameras fully in the cloud.
It is designed for the new ‘connected‘ generation who do everything while connected to the Internet from their PC, tablet or smartphone. Cameramanager.com provides an easy to setup tailorable interface which enables users to view, store and analyse up to 60 days of recording, saving only video sequences which require further investigation.
The arrival of fast broadband and 4G networks in the UK soon makes this mature VSaaS service compelling for many UK-based SMB owners and managers wanting to keep a remote eye on their office, shop or other assets while they are on the move. It is possible to set up motion alerts which automatically push text messages to users‘ mobile devices when movement is detected. It just gives them the peace of mind which many are looking for, all for an affordable monthly subscription fee. Compared to a local recorder or traditional video management software you could easily save up to 80% per camera.
The service uses the most robust and secure network, cabling and cloud technologies including multiple and redundant Gbps Ethernet connections to the fastest European fibre network, Secured Cloud Connection, automatic load balancing, use of CloudBank STAC self-healing VM Failover, redundant database clustering and much more.
Rishi Lodhia, founder and managing director of Cameramanager.com explained why he selected NW Systems as its online partner in the UK:
“NW Systems has the same understanding as we do that the proliferation of high quality broadband connections and maturing of cloud-based computing together present some unique opportunities for IP video.”
“NW Systems is the only UK company offering a highly rated online store for IP video products and already running its own internet and cloud-based video services like RemoteManager and Streamdays. They understand the market and have the vital online channel to market. It will be a great partnership for us.”
Frank Crouwel, managing director, NW Systems Group, said:
“We believe that the time is right to enter the UK market with a highly robust, easy to set up and use VSaaS service. We have the largest UK online store for IP cameras in the shape of networkwebcams.co.uk and we know we can reach a good percentage of the market for this service online.”
Aaron Dale, market analyst, Security & Fire, IHS, said:
“We have forecast compound annual growth rates of 33.4% in terms of revenues throughout 2011-2016 so that the UK and Eire market for VSaaS will reach £15m ($24m) by 2016. The presence of start-up VSaaS services across Europe and the continued infrastructure investment by large telecoms players like Telefonica, as well the involvement of VMS players including Genetec, make this market a very exciting one to watch over the next few years.”1
