Chinese security firm invests in Zim

HARARE - China's leading supplier of surveillance products, HIKVISION, has partnered Nations Hardware and Electrical to strengthen Zimbabwe’s security industry.

Nations Hardware and Electrical manager Dusty Joosab said it was the company’s objective to provide unique and world class services in the hardware, security and electrical goods sector.

“Having been in the hardware and tools industry for several years, we felt there was a need to fill a void that other players in the industry could not fill,” he said during the official launch of HIKVISION brand and family of products onto the Zimbabwean market last week.

Joosab added that there was need for true customer satisfaction by providing products and services that are unmatched in Zimbabwe.

Some of the products launched included e-policing — a system that can automatically detect traffic violations and generate traffic tickets automatically and advice motorists of fines on their registered mobile  devices — and automatic incident alerts to emergency response teams like ambulances and fire departments.

Other smart solutions include solutions for the energy sector, wildlife conservation, fleet monitoring, systems integration, vertical solutions and number plate recognition.

Joosab noted that Zimbabwe’s leading supplier of security-related products also aims to provide a service that is internationally-recognised — simultaneously providing quality products that are affordable and consistent with international standards.
