SEN Weekly Wrap 004 Unwraps The Week’s Latest News.

SEN Weekly Wrap 004 – All the latest news from the security industry this week, including tenders, DAS revenue growth, new product releases and more.

Up front, Dicker Access and Surveillance reported revenues of $A153.3 million, up from $82.8 million over the year prior. This included $6.7 million in sales from Auckland-based Connect Security. It’s been an impressive few years from Dicker, which has turned the former Hills’ security business completely around. Taken as a whole, Dicker grew overall gross revenue by 5.6 per cent to $3.28 billion in 2023.

Genetec opened its new experience centre at Tech Central in Sydney Tuesday last and it was a great event – wonderful to catch up with so many familiar faces – see your friends and competitors here. Ava Group – (FFT, BQT, GJD) has expanded its APAC team.

SEN had an initial play with the Milesight 5MP motorised dome from LSC during the week – nice. This is a seriously robust little camera. We also hung the Bosch 7100 IR bullet out front of the office again during the week doing the night component of our SEN test – it’s such a strong performer.

Axis has released a Radar Data Visualizer that incorporates a powerful analytic application that combines 180-degree radar detection and 180-degree panoramic multisensor images for improved situational awareness with minimum false alarms. It sounds fascinating to us.  

Axis has also released the AXIS Q9307-LV Dome Camera for tele-sitting elderly folks or sick teenagers or loved ones while safeguarding privacy in real-time. This camera has good video quality, 2-way audio, coughing and stressed voice analytics for active incident management and more. We really like this lateral application of CCTV, audio and clever analytics, and hope to test it soon.

Tenders – WAPOL needs supply, installation, configuration and replacement of the Fitzroy Crossing Police Station security system and CCTV solution. Whitsunday Regional Council has nudged back the big CCTV street surveillance tender in Queensland to March 8 and Indigo Shire Council in Victoria needs a restricted key system.

Northeastern University has described a technique of eavesdropping on CCTV cameras by detecting image streams passing through wiring.
