Hills has added China-based security and video surveillance vendor Zhejiang Dahua Technology to its portfolio, as part of its efforts to expand its security offerings.
Dahua touts itself as the world’s second-biggest supplier of video surveillance and services, and has a presence in more than 180 countries. Its core offering includes network cameras, network video recorders and HD-over-coax video surveillance technology.
Its customer base includes the banking and finance, government, transport and retail sectors.
“Hills continues to build and invest in our security business, attracting global technology leaders with products that reinvigorate our portfolio and create opportunities for sales and growth,” Hills managing director David Lenz said.
“As one of the largest value-added building technologies distributor in the ANZ region, we have a deep understanding of the industry and what end-users want. We see the Dahua product fitting seamlessly alongside our existing brands and integrating with other vendor solutions like Genetec.”
Hills earlier this week extended its distribution agreement with Genetec, a unified security solutions vendor and long-time Hills partner, up to October 2020. Genetec said in the announcement that its partnership with Hills had delivered double-digit growth in the past three years.
Lenz added that Dahua has “one of the widest product ranges” in the industry, citing technology that is able to interface and integrate into existing analogue and future IT-based infrastructure.
“Dahua is pleased to partner with Hills. They are a visionary distributor with solid support infrastructure across the ANZ region and demonstrate a deep understanding of security and video surveillance,” Dahua Oceania managing director Lyn Cheng said.
“We look forward to a long and successful partnership.”
