DVS to offer Facewatch’s facial recognition system to resellers

DVS, a UK-based CCTV camera and components distributor, will provide the Facewatch facial recognition crime deterrent solution to its installer and reseller network – the first distributor to do so.

DVS has taken this step to ensure that the product availability, training and support needed to achieve a rapid roll out is in place. The companies claim that the Facewatch system has been successfully tested across a range of retailers over the last 18 months.

Facewatch, which is sold as a licenced product is GDPR compliant, and the uploaded criminal data is the responsibility of Facewatch under a data sharing agreement which is signed by the user. Facewatch will be available to ‘approved’ installers who have been trained on both the practical setup of the cameras and aspects of managing and running the system.

Gavin Dunleavy, commercial director at DVS Ltd, said: “Facial recognition is being discussed within businesses and the wider world by those who understand that the best technologies can deter and prevent crime... Facewatch combines simple CCTV hardware with a secure cloud-based software solution, so accredited training and support is of the upmost importance for our installers to deliver this incredible solution. We will be running training from our HQ initially then across the UK with a plan to have trained and accredited strategic partners in place throughout 2020.”
