New National Distributor SensaTek Launches in Australia
A NEW national electronic security distribution company, SensaTek, has been launched in Australia, with staff, offices and warehousing in each state.
According to Bill Barbagiannakos, managing director, SensaTek is a boutique electronic security distribution company that will offer a quality range of electronic security and data networking solutions, as well as a high level of support to integrators and resellers, and design assistance to consultants.
“Forming a partnership with APCD – visit us at www.apcd.com.au – has given SensaTek nationwide coverage in all states,” Barbagiannakos said. “The collaboration is a perfect fit for IT enterprise and security surveillance industry converging to form the total solution.
“SensaTek has warehousing, configuration facilities and offices in every state and there are now SensaTek staff in each state – one in each initially and this will grow quickly. They are all senior people from the industry and will take on roles in their speciality fields.”
When it comes to product range, Barbagiannakos says there’s plenty to look forward to across multiple market segments.
“We will carry brands in each of the market segments we support, for their respective characteristics to offer optimal choice for the integrators and resellers,” said Barbagiannakos. “We are in surveillance and video management, as well as access control and intrusion. We will also carry IP intercoms and loads of IT products – servers, workstations, storage, etc. We are taking the IoT message to the market with proficiency and capability.”
“We have Vivotek in IP surveillance,” Barbagiannakos said. “I know my cameras and have always considered Vivotek to be the equal of the best cameras – it’s manufactured and designed in-house in Taiwan and the company is one of digital video’s true pioneers,” he said. “We will also have a third brand in video surveillance yet to be announced.”
“We also distribute Vicon’s complete portfolio. The range is revamped and includes the new Valerus VMS. We also have the Aimetis VMS and IPConfigure’s Orchid, which is a federated web client VMS that can be federated across multiple browser platforms, including Safari – it works on anything. It’s a real disruptor.”
“With access control, we are offering VAX from Vicon. Vicon’s VAX access control system features an over-the-door controller with an embedded request-to-exit motion sensor, status LEDs and on-board communications that simplify installation and troubleshooting. The browser-based VAX Valerus access control software is packed with management and reporting features, formatted for quick viewing and intuitive operation. There will be another access control solution we will announce soon.”
According to Barbagiannakos, SensaTek will also offer access readers, IP intercoms, a variety of leading brands of servers, storage, networking gear, including ruggedized industrial switches – from Antaira and Vivotek, a huge range of IT and networking hardware.
“SensaTek is highly committed to building itself into a strong and capable distribution business and I am extremely excited about the future,” Barbagiannakos said. “We will be leveraging all our skill and all our considerable experience on behalf of our customers and we are looking forward to speaking with you very soon.”
