Y3K enjoys record attendance and great feedback at IFSEC
Croydon, UK, 26th July 2014. After a busy three days, leading HD CCTV and specialist security distributor, Y3K, has reported a significant increase in visitor numbers compared with shows in previous years. Y3K showcased its own latest HD CCTV technologies, as well as vehicle CCTV solutions from sister company, SmartWitness, and new access control and time attendance products from leading global manufacturer, Anviz. The show also marked a significant chapter in Y3K’s history as a new strategic distribution partnership with electrical wholesalers, WF Senate, was signed on the opening day, making them a distribution channel partner for Y3K’s full range of HD CCTV and security products.
The event, which made its debut at the Excel Centre in London’s Docklands, gave new and existing customers the opportunity to learn more about the latest HD CCTV and access-control products on the market. On display was Y3K’s new range of affordable HD CCTV surveillance cameras and complete end-to-end solutions using the very latest 960H CCTV technology. For the more professional installations, two new ranges of Xvision IP cameras were also launched: Xvision Pro HD, which offers installers 1080p resolution images in a simple-to-install format, and Xvision ELITE, which caters for those looking for enterprise-level IP CCTV, including powerful video content analytics and ANPR.
New to Y3K’s expanding portfolio of products was an exciting range of Anviz biometric access control products. Fingerprint Recognition, Facial Recognition, Time Attendance and RFID Access-Control products – all fully supported by Y3K’s UK-based technical support team – created a high level of interest from visitors looking for the latest cutting-edge biometric access control solutions.
The event also allowed the Y3K and WF Senate teams to meet with customers and explain more about the new partnership and what it means to them from a day-to-day perspective. Now that the partnership agreement has been signed, and after a successful trial, Y3K’s products are now available from 104 WF Senate branches across the UK, where customers receive expert advice and product support, competitive pricing, a system design service and, most importantly, same-day delivery/collection.
Paul Singh, CEO for the Y3K Group commented: "Moving the show to London put IFSEC to the test – one we are happy to say it has passed with flying colours. We have had a busy, yet effective exhibition, with many new and existing clients visiting our booth to try out all the products we had on display. Speaking with them also highlighted how the UK was missing a local source for Installers to try, purchase and receive after sales support for all their CCTV and access-control needs. Our partnership with WF Senate gives us the largest UK footprint of CCTV trade counters in the UK, it’s a unique opportunity, for us, for WF Senate and most importantly our customers.”
