PRESS RELEASE: MAY 2019
Owner of Toowoomba security company Secure Solutions, Peter Siokos, talks of his visit to a CCTV tech-con in China
A TV 100 metres wide, robots that park the car for you and other robots that know how long one task will take to bring what you need for the next step at the precise time you need it – what more of an adventure could any tech-head ask?
Quality products made in China may seem like a contradiction, but Secure Solutions CEO Peter Siokos flew to Hangzhou, China (the 2016 hosting city of the G20 summit) to answer one question, “Why does the HIKvision product outlast all the other brands we offer?”. The answer was a visit to the ultimate Nirvana for gadget geeks – a manufacturer’s convention plus tours through their factory district (that’s right, not just one factory – a district of factories!).
This tech company has not only earned Peter’s trust, but also the trust of the very particular Chinese government who employ the use of these products in their own monitoring systems.
Peter found in his travels that the difference was in the company’s thoroughness. “Everything is made in-house. They make every element required to assemble their equipment. They don’t just test random samplings of their equipment, they test every piece that leaves the factory, that kind of commitment is unheard of in other brands!”
“I could not believe how excellent and immaculate the conditions were in the factories! They have programmed the robots to know exactly when and what each tech will need for the next element in assembly. The robot goes to the warehouse storage, gets the pieces required and at the exact moment the builder needs it, the robot – like a nurse passing the doctor surgical equipment – has it ready for them”
The convention included many cultural influences with the focus obviously always on the technology, and the 100-metre-long television being featured in all the speech/sit down events during the convention definitely brought some thrills to a few faces in the crowd.
Of course the trip wasn’t all technology. Peter, along with other delegates from all around the world, were treated to local delicacies, (including chicken heads, and also the most intricately formed desserts which would make the most skilled of pastry chefs envious) as well as a visit to the picturesque West Lakes.
“The attention to detail was in everything around us. Any questions I had about the HIKvision company were completely assured in seeing the level of professionalism, the commitment to quality and the passion for excellence”.
