Snap One has announced a U.S. distribution partnership with Digital Watchdog, a provider of surveillance and video analytics, to provide Snap One Partners easy access to the manufacturer’s security products.
Snap One has added 51 Digital Watchdog SKUs to its local partner stores nationwide, and Snap One will be releasing this curated product mix on its ecommerce platform in Q1 2023.
According to Andras Balassy, Snap One senior business development manager, the addition of Digital Watchdog’s security solutions allow Snap One Partners to design more customized and purpose-built security systems for both residential and commercial clients.
“Snap One strives to be a one-stop-shop for our partners to acquire virtually anything they need for integration and security projects,” he said. “With Digital Watchdog’s sophisticated analytics and video management systems, they can pursue new opportunities and deliver powerful features demanded by enterprise or multi-site clients. Adding Digital Watchdog’s license plate readers, AI-enhanced digital recorders and other cutting-edge products truly complements our in-house brands with advanced options.”
Digital Watchdog offers complete solutions including a video management system (VMS), edge analytics and server-side analytics. These are all fully compatible with many of Snap One’s current product offerings and all major manufactures in the video market. By combining software and hardware, a VMS helps users automatically monitor events from any number of surveillance cameras, alarms or sensors. VMS hardware can include cameras, encoders for analog camera systems, and servers for video processing and storage.
Current Digital Watchdog dealers will be able to port their existing authorized dealer status into Snap One’s system, while uninitiated dealers can become authorized dealers through a simple form available at all local partner stores and the e-commerce platform once the product is launched.
“Snap One is excited to offer these premium products when and where they are needed, with same-day local availability for the most popular SKUs and access to the full catalog for orders,” Balassy said. “We strive to be the single source for everything our partners need to bid on bigger, more sophisticated jobs.”
