PSI Intruder Product of the Year
Pyronix Enforcer with Hikvision integration has recently won the PSI Intruder Product of the Year 2018 Award for the second consecutive year in a row.
“Winning the Intruder Product of the Year is a great accolade, but to have won it for two years consecutively is such a fantastic achievement,” said Laurence Kenny, Marketing Manager, Pyronix, “We are extremely pleased that the Enforcer has once again been recognized as the market-leading intruder product by the installers. We are very proud and appreciative for this.”
Since winning the award in 2017, many developments have been made that have contributed to this success, including the addition of ProControl+, Hik-Connect and Hikvision’s iVMS-4200 integration.
These add great value to the Enforcer allowing installers to extend their offerings, compete in new markets, remain competitive, and provide new and desired solutions to end users in a converging industry.
Now, installers can offer the best of both worlds in one solution – market-leading intrusion and video combined in one Enforcer system.
PSI CCTV Product of the Year
Hikvision also won the PSI Premier ‘CCTV Product of The Year’ Awards 2018 for the third year in a row. The honoured Hikvision product was the PanoVu mini-series IR network PTZ camera (DS-2PT3326IZ-DE3), which integrates four cameras into one to provide both panoramic video images for general observation or detection and closeups of any areas where more detail is required.
The Hikvision DS-2PT3326IZ-DE3 was chosen by PSI readers – mostly surveillance systems designers and installers – who voted on the PSI website. With more than 1,000 surveillance professionals voting each year, PSI’s CCTV Product of the Year category is strongly contested, making Hikvision’s achievement even more gratifying.
Gary Harmer, Sales Director for Hikvision UK & Ireland said, “Thanks to everyone who voted for Hikvision, and to PSI for running and hosting the awards. We’re constantly innovating to create surveillance products that provide installers and end customers high performance, industry leading features, and excellent value for money. With a keen balance of wide-angle video, close-up footage, and 3D positioning, the DS-2PT3326IZ-DE3 offers all of these benefits – a fact that was recognised by PSI’s readers this year.”
The features behind the award
The DS-2PT3326IZ-DE3 offers a range of innovative technology features that are likely to have appealed to PSI’s informed readership. These include 3x fixed lenses that capture panoramic views and 1x central PTZ for capturing more zoomed in views, which collectively support both wide-angle and close-up video. All cameras that are integrated into the product feature crystal-clear video imaging.
In addition to these features, the Hikvision DS2PT3326IZ-DE3 provides a range of industry leading security features that installers and customers value. These include user authentication and IP address filtering, and protection against voltage surges.
Finally, but of equal importance, the Hikvision DS2PT3326IZ-DE3 supports highly efficient audio and video compression. This helps customers minimize their data transmission and storage costs, and lower their overall OPEX.
PSI is an industry-leading professional security magazine based in the UK, which annually hosts its PSI Premier Awards. This year the event was attended by Ray Parlour, the former England and Arsenal midfielder.
The PSI Premier Awards ask industry professionals to nominate and vote for the solutions which catch the attention of the market. By allowing installers to vote for their favourite products and determine the winner, makes it a highly coveted accolade in the industry.
