360 Vision Technology and Check Your Security celebrate ten-year partnership

Promoting the company’s ethos of establishing close working partnerships, CCTV design and manufacturing operation 360 Vision Technology is celebrating a long-term technical relationship with IP CCTV and security system specialist Check Your Security. With offices in London and Liverpool, Check Your Security offers a wide range of professional expertise and experience in delivering integrated security solutions by using Best-in-Class technology and was the first adopter of 360 Vision Technology’s Predator HD camera a decade ago.

With its founders from the IT industry, Check Your Security identified the need for professional IP services in the security industry and, today, focuses on providing highly-effective integrated digital IP security systems integration.

Right from the beginning of the working relationship with 360 Vision Technology, Check Your Security’s management team was keen to take advantage of the technology on offer.

Close technical partnership

Carl Pace, managing director at Check Your Security, explained: “To enable us to meet the current and long-term needs of our customers, we endeavour to develop partnerships with suppliers of market-leading and innovative technologies. Ten years ago, we wanted to secure a viable solution for one of our long-term university customers where comprehensive electronic surveillance was required on campus. Being a company with a hardware and software agnostic ethos, we turned to 360 Vision Technology. We were presented with the opportunity to use the then brand-new Predator HD camera. The camera’s superior performance meant that we could not only provide the very best imaging quality possible, but also on-board white light illumination capability to add another level of safety and security for the university’s students.”

Pace added: “Due to 360 Vision Technology’s ability to listen well to its customers’ requirements and develop its products accordingly, we were able to assist them with on-site/real world development of the Predator product, while the 360 Vision Technology team integrated the camera with a Milestone Systems VMS at the university. During this time, we helped with many versions of the new camera, testing them at our head office and in the field.”

Pace went on to state: “The close technical partnership between our two companies has grown to provide many successful surveillance solutions across a range of diverse applications, including hospitals, colleges, ports, corporate headquarters and Critical National Infrastructure sites.”

Benefiting partners and end users

Mark Rees, managing director of 360 Vision Technology, responded: “360 Vision Technology is always looking to partner with like-minded electronic security companies for the benefit of both partners and end users. With our long-term technical relationship with Check Your Security, we’re helping to ensure that end users can enjoy a fully integrated, hassle-free security solution and promote ‘Best of British’ integrated surveillance solutions.”

Rees also explained: “Check Your Security is a valued long-term 360 Vision Technology customer and technical partner. They’ve helped us to develop key technologies in our camera range and apply their vast installation and application experience to assist our camera development fine-tuning.”

According to Pace: “We understand the value of knowledge and training within our team. As such, all of our engineers are fully-trained and accredited across a wide range of products to ensure we provide our customers with high-quality and reliable service. With a 99% customer retention rate, we believe we must be doing something right. This knowledge and experience has been a critical element in the mutually beneficial and professional relationships we enjoy with all of our customers. 360 Vision Technology’s in-depth development and technical resource is always available to us. The company’s assistance and advice is always on the other end of the phone, and I’m sure that our working partnership will continue to grow as we develop new projects together going forward.”
