"Before, my company sold a variety of different security manufacturers' products throughout India. However, now, we only sell Hikvision."
- Vipin Mishra, Managing Director and Owner of Microtek Electronic Industries

But, as Mr. Mishra attests, Hikvision is just such a company. "We have been using Hikvision products for the past 2 years, and the failure rate is almost zero. Beyond this, Hikvision's after-sales support is remarkable … we receive regular updates on new products and their software is also readily available."

The legacy of Alarms Unlimited goes back well beyond the 1950s when the security company started providing security solutions to residential estates. Even though the company has since branched out to the commercial sector, it maintains its portfolio in its residential clientele. Among its recent projects, one in particular laid the foundation for its collaboration with Hikvision, a China-based surveillance technology company with a worldwide presence. This project was set in New Jersey, where several low-income housing projects were direct beneficiaries of the state-of-the-art technologies from Hikvision.
Our story begins with crime as the main antagonist in New Jersey. Residents in low-income housing estates were traumatized by the incidence of drug offences, robberies, and murders. So often were residents gripped with fear that public law enforcement services alone were insufficient to set their minds at ease. Even if suspected criminal activities were reported, law enforcers had no way of reviewing the scenes in the premises. Furthermore, there was a time lag between the time of reporting and their arrival. Although security cameras are common today, it was difficult to lay wires around the premises in a discreet fashion and integrate them into a larger system. It is no wonder that these residential precincts were in dire need of a foolproof security solution that could serve both as a record of incidents and a deterrent for deviants to engage in criminal activities on the premises.
Alarms Unlimited, with its extensive experience in the residential security market was entrusted with the task of securing these premises in New Jersey. And the long-established company brought in Hikvision by embracing its line of surveillance technologies, installing them as a part of the CCTV systems throughout these low-income residential estates.
