Dahua continues to invest in UK market

Maidenhead, Berkshire (UK)

Steve Norman, appointed as Key Account Manager at Dahua UK

As part of the expansion of its UK operations, video surveillance manufacturer Dahua Technology has appointed Steve Norman as Key Account Manager.

The appointment comes at a time when Dahua is making significant investments in its UK business and is increasing its headcount to provide a higher level of support for its distribution and integration partners.

Norman spent three years as Business Development Manager at Chubb, and more recently worked at Hikvision in a similar role.

“I am joining Dahua at an exciting time,” he said. “The company, which is the largest independent manufacturer of surveillance equipment in the world, is beginning to invest heavily in the UK market, and as part of this we are increasing our UK headcount to offer an enhanced level of support to our integration and distribution partners.”

Dahua had an annual turnover of more than $1.6 billion in 2015 and is ranked as second-largest security manufacturer in the world. The company also has one of the largest R&D departments in the industry with over 5,000 engineers and invests 10% of its total annual revenues in R&D.

“Dahua has invested in additional technical support and regional account managers over the past few months,” added Norman, “and this is set to grow further. We are also shortly to move into our new UK headquarters building, which will have a state-of-the-art demonstration and training facility. This investment, coupled with the exciting developments in both our IP and HD-CVI product ranges, will enable Dahua to offer an unrivalled level of support.”

Slow up take of biometrics in access market

Ever since the first fingerprint readers came to market more than a decade ago, access control industry stakeholders have eagerly anticipated the prospect of finally eliminating cards from their systems.  However, as of 2015, biometric reader sales accounted for just 30 percent of access control reader sales in the Americas. Meaning they ranked third, still behind both 125 kHz proximity and smart card readers in popularity. "Hardly the credential revolution that manufacturers were hoping for." says Jim Dearing, analyst at research company, IHS Markit.

Smart parking solution meets the challenge

In the last two decades, global economic growth has led to a tremendous increase in vehicles in almost every corner of the world. Reports have shown that in cities, most high rise apartment buildings have had difficulties managing their parking spaces. ID card issuing, billing, entrance control and payment made the entrance procedure very inefficient. Traditional smart card management systems limit the access to those who hold an allocated smart card. However, cards could be stolen and the processing of a lost card is inconvenient.
