Security and telecommunications have become critical elements for businesses and households in a modern world where efficiency determines business success.

This trend has stimulated a convergence of security and telecommunication as organisations seek to protect themselves and increase the speed of information flow.

Just like businesses, players in the security and telecoms industry are investing heavily in modern and efficient solutions as demand grows, creating a multibillion shilling industry.

Hudaco Kenya, a member of the Hudaco Industries Group, says with competition growing, value-addition is offering an edge to distributors.

The value-addition includes sound technical knowledge and advice, training on solutions, installation, and troubleshooting, according to Hudaco Kenya, which has a presence in East Africa and is attracting resellers and integrators. 

The company imports, distributes and supports solutions for wireless, safety, security, and telecommunications sectors.

Security solutions are aimed at giving clients peace of mind in various sectors, whether commercial enterprises, government or not-for-profit.

To be well-protected from intrusion and theft, products need to be not only reliable but also easy to maintain. 

Hudaco Kenya says it deals in brands like Imat and Turnstar, Centurion, Axis, Securestar, Kantech, Suprema and Impro, and Uniview.

Access control has become a key safety feature for most offices and residential areas where solutions include barriers, intercoms, metal detectors, baggage and walkthrough scanners and a wide variety of readers, access cards and tag detectors.

Organisations need solutions that ensure timely response to mitigate any potential damage from unintentional fire hazards.

Hudaco Kenya says its combined smoke detectors and alarm devices can help not only detect the occurrence but also ensure notification in good time.

There are also a range of intruder-detection devices which, if triggered through unauthorised access, send a notification to a contact person.

“We have surveillance solutions for a wide variety of industries, from city surveillance, retail and even construction sites,” says Hudaco Kenya.

Meanwhile, the company is also focusing on telecommunications, with brands such as Ubiquiti, Mikrotik, Grandstream, Cambium, Tenda and RF Elements. Some of its services in this category include wireless solutions ranging from point-to-point, backhaul carrier-grade to last-mile point-to-multipoint solutions.

There is also VoIP, or Voice over IP, which has been on the rise due to its cost efficiency and stability compared to conventional copper products.

“Offering increased accessibility, clearer voice quality, scalability and portability all at a lower cost, it is easy to understand the trend, and the need to capitalize on it,” says the company.

Hudaco Kenya specialises in layer 2 and layer 3 networking equipment such as unmanaged PoE switches, managed PoE switches to layer 3 network and core routers. 

“In our current digital age, connectivity is key to daily activities, and Wi-Fi is becoming ever more vital to that,” it says. “Our Wi-Fi portfolio ranges from single access points to multi-site cloud managed solutions.”
