The new Multi range of power supplies are rewriting the rule book for multiway CCTV power. The 2 units, now do the job of 6 previous models without losing any of the current range benefits with their unique fuse layout making them the most cost effective, user friendly and flexible power supply on the market.
DVS have launched a new range of POE Powered Monitors from 1080P -4K and with different sizing available as the range continues to grow. This New 22” model is the most popular with HDMI, VGA, BNC in & out and RJ-45 connection to allow for the POE support.
Simply connect to a POE + Source to power and are designed to greatly simplify the installation. Imagine not having to run mains power to a monitor location and the time and cost saving this will provide? The flexibility it can give, and can also be connected to a smart POE switch and use timed schedules on the POE port, so the monitor is only active when required to give a power saving eco friendly solution!
Carrying on with the best selling Turret style on the market, Hikvision have further enhanced the feature set by including a built in mic. 4MP Resolution with either 2.8mm or 4mm lens option, 3 Axis adjustment, H.265+ @25FPS, 120Db WDR, 2 x VCA, SD card compatible, IP67. Making this little beauty a must have for any installation.
LigoDLBac series devices are an ideal solution for capacity demanding applications. State of the art RF design with great output power and sensitivity parameters improve range and capacity over the highest modulation – 256 QAM. The 24V Gigabit Ethernet port (passive PoE) allows utilising the full capacity of the radio when used in a point-to-point or point-to-multipoint network design.
Wi-tek have released this simple yet cost effective 2 radio kit. Simply take it out of the box, set the switch as master on one and slave on the other, fit in Situ and point them at each other (clear line of sight) and they will link!
POE injector included inside the box and it hides a neat trick. If you want to power a POE camera (static) directly from the unit, just follow the instructions included to turn the POE output on and hey presto!. You have POE pass through for the camera or leave it off to link networks together
Not much to say about this post to be honest, they are available in white and now black. Lets do a riddle instead –
What 8 letter word can have a letter taken away and it still makes a word. Take another letter away and it still makes a word. Keep on doing that until you have one letter left. What is the word? The first person to email email@example.com with the correct answer will get a cheeky prize.
Audio over coax is the latest offering from Hikvision. With the New line up of cameras with built in microphone and a DVR to back this up, you can now record audio when required directly from the camera over the coax with no additional parts, making for a neater solution.

Calipsa filters out over 85% of false alarms, forwarding only true alarms to human operators to review.
Connect to your existing cameras in 30 seconds with zero additional hardware. The platform provides instant access to your alarm dashboard, reporting, and camera management.
How it Works
Calipsa is completely cloud-based so it can be managed from anywhere in the world. Once set up, the process is simple.
1. Alarms are sent from camera to Calipsa cloud servers which filter out alarms caused by nonhuman or vehicle motion.
2. Calipsa forwards valid alerts to your alarm monitoring software for visual verification by an operator who reviews alarms for threats.
3. Calipsa’s deep learning algorithms learn and evolve with every camera reviewed, becoming more accurate every time.
Brand new from NEON, the 22” Monitor with TVI loop-through support. Not only can you connect a 2MP or 5MP TVI camera as a spot monitor, you can also take the feed back to the DVR for recording purposes. We also give you HDMI & VGA inputs. With the option to either mount on a wall or have it on a desktop, this really is a highly versatile, brilliant bit of technology
Hikvision AcuSense Technology provides accurate sensing in security hardware. Empowered by deep learning algorithms, AcuSense technology distinguishes people and vehicles from other moving objects.
On detecting suspect activity an audible warning message will sound (which you can customise) and a flashing light will trigger. These will not only attract the offender, making them look directly at the camera but will also deter them from any further action. We can also send notifications upon activation. This clever box of tricks offers so much versatility while minimising costs and equipment. What will you use it for?
ANPR analytics allows to detect and recognise vehicle’s license plate and send ANPR info to a Smart NVR or VMS software for access management. You can search and view the matched captured vehicle plate picture and related information according to the plate searching conditions including the start time/end time, country and plate No.
The New DeepinView ANPR cameras adopt the latest and self-developed deep learning algorithm, with large quantity of samples input to ensure the accuracy of detection and classification. With integrated powerful GPU, it allows more efficient object detection and classification.
The wonderful geek’s at Hikvision have released the new updated Facial Recognition Terminal, DS-K1T607MFW. The unit is smaller in size (size doesn’t matter), can store up to 6000 faces and 5000 fingerprints. It also features Wi-Fi, multi-mode authentication and works with IVMS-4200 & HIK-Central, this unit really does pack a powerful punch.
Jam packed with functions and features, facial recognition access control has never been so neat, powerful and user friendly.
Ever wanted crystal clear colour images day & night!
Available in both IP and Turbo HD, Hikvision’s ColourVu uses the latest image processing combined with a built-in white light to enhance the colour of imagery captured at night. This provides both high quality evidential images while also acting as a deterrent.
A would-be intruder could potentially be stopped by the use of the bright white light function. In essence, you’re getting a 2 for 1 bargain, and we know how much this industry loves a bargain!!

NEXUS is a battery powered, wireless critical alert system. The units are fully portable, wire free, and can be rapidly deployed for fire alert and lockdown situations.
When one NEXUS Wireless Alert unit is activated, all units within range that are on the same site will also be activated.
The NEXUS system boasts a robust 1km line of sight transmission range between units and a long battery life of up to 3 years, with a maximum of 64 units operating on one site. Each unit acts as a repeater to form an advanced wireless mesh network, allowing for up to 16 mesh hops between units; this gives the NEXUS system a maximum range of up to 16km. Each site requires at least one master unit, which is fitted with a manual reset key. Resetting the master unit will reset the system post-activation, however, the initially triggered unit will continue to flash until it is manually reset. Complies with new EU legislation regarding audio & visual alerts.
Looking for high quality analogue images in challenging lighting environments? Hikvision’s #Turbo HD #H8T cameras are equipped with ultra-low light technology and 130dB true WDR to provide clear pictures even in dimly lit night-time scenes or when strong backlight creates a contrast challenge for standard cameras.
The Hikvision Turbo HD X series of cameras has a built-in detector that captures infrared light emitted by human bodies, distinguishing it from other visual ‘noise’. Once the camera detects a potential intruder, its built-in siren flashes red and blue light and a loud sound with the aim of frightening the intruder away.
The Turbo HD X series can support a broad range of perimeter protection and security system processes for in-process warning, and evidence collection after an event. It enables transformation of the traditional monitoring and post-event investigation approach, and helps to change perimeter protection from passive monitoring to active deterrence in order to protect people and assets.
This great little addition to our comprehensive range will save you time, money and give a very easy upgrade solution, as this little Gem is powered by POE up to 60w.
