Dahua, the large Chinese IP-camera manufacturer, has taken to the sky in delivering an unmanned aerial vehicle —drone— to its offering of security oriented products.

This is a new direction for Dahua and one that has been undertaken by other IP-camera manufacturers. What distinguishes a Dahua Drone from other Civilian UAVs is the mission it is positioned for: to undertake safety from above. There are in fact two levels of drones, consumer-level and industry-level. Dahua Drones belong to the latter group.

Cell phone cameras have made everyone who owns one a citizen journalist. Mobile journalists are quick to capture video of an incident and then just as quickly post it to social media. In some cases, this “video evidence” is used for social monitoring or even prosecutions. While cell phone cameras can be used to document anything at any time, the application is not the same as a video surveillance system.

Static electricity is more problematic when there is low humidity, no matter what the season. The issue is compounded as electronic devices today are smaller and more susceptible to electrostatic discharge. Granted, most electronics have ESD protection built in; but over time or from a constant barrage of these tiny lightning-like strikes, the protection becomes corrupted, resulting in a failure. Anytime air is warmed, this only reduces the humidity further, increasing the likelihood of a static discharge.
When you get a positive surge out of what you are doing and the business you are in, challenges can be much easier to deal with. Looking back over the years of the dot com boom, the convergence of analog and IP, and the sexiness of video analytics, sometimes businesses based on the basics can grow into something very special as well. We recently caught up with Rich Mitchell, Technical Sales Director at power surge protection equipment company DITEK and chatted about their company’s growth over the past 30 years. Mitchell has been with DITEK for 28 of those years and has seen the company become a very strong player in power protection.
