CCTV camera and components distributor DVS has become the first UK distributor to offer the Facewatch facial recognition crime deterrent solution to its installer and reseller network. A proven deterrent to theft and violence in retail stores, Facewatch will be available to ‘approved’ installers who have been trained on all aspects of managing and running the system. DVS Commercial Director Gavin Dunleavy said: “Facewatch is the leading facial recognition solution with a focus on the retail sector and other verticals.
With GDPR compliance and privacy controls built into the system, the solution becomes powerful and legally deployable. Facewatch combines simple CCTV hardware with a secure cloud-based software solution, so accredited training and support is of the upmost importance to installers.
We will be running training from our HQ initially, then across the UK, and plan to have trained and accredited strategic partners in place throughout 2020.” Nick Fisher, CEO of Facewatch Ltd, said: “Facewatch is supplied on licence and creates a new recurring income stream for installers who will provide lifelong technical, product management and training support to their customers.”
