Digital Watchdog Joins Forces with datanet IT for Essential Surveillance Solutions

This partnership aligns perfectly with our mission to provide customers with state-of-the-art solutions designed to grow with their businesses. Digital Watchdog has been leading the way in digital surveillance for a long time, says Steve Muir.

Bay Area businesses are under pressure to keep their staff and offices secure. COVID-19 and civil unrest have led many companies to find new solutions to better protect both their people and their property.

A new partnership between Digital Watchdog, the leading manufacturer of complete surveillance systems, and datanet IT, a trusted IT solutions provider in the Bay Area for more than 35 years, gives businesses the technology they need to stay safe in uncertain times.

Mike Murphy, senior sales engineer at datanet IT, says the partnership makes top-of-the-line surveillance solutions accessible for small and medium-sized businesses. Existing integrations with other established security solutions made Digital Watchdog an ideal partner for datanet IT.

“What makes them different is they’re a high-end, scalable product that’s also easy to use,” says Murphy. “The clincher was that they had full integration with ProdataKey (a leading cloud-based access control provider). Both technologies being able to integrate with each other was really important for us. Whoever can do it best is what we were looking for.”

Unlike retail surveillance providers, datanet IT goes far beyond selling the surveillance products themselves. The IT industry leader administers soup-to-nuts responses ranging from pairing customers with the right products for their businesses to installation and continued IT support.

“It’s a big difference from buying similar equipment in a retail setting,” Murphy says. “We offer a complete solution. We come in and design it, get it installed, have everyone trained and provide ongoing maintenance.”

Surveillance is a vital tool in the prevention of theft and unwanted visitors. Murphy also clarifies that businesses use digital surveillance for many other applications. These include improving workplace safety by protecting companies from potential liability. Digital surveillance simplifies situations for both businesses and insurers through clear, objective video recordings.

“You’ll always have video access if someone falls or gets hurt and if people are going in unauthorized areas,” he says.
The partnership is already having a positive impact for companies in the Bay Area. One recent installation identified the perpetrator of a hit-and-run.

“There was one system we put in recently, and within the first three weeks, they caught an accident,” says Murphy. “A vendor ran into a car in the parking lot, and we were able to get the license plate, make, and model with video surveillance. They were very happy that it immediately had a benefit because they had so many vehicles coming and going in the parking lot.”

Steve Muir, President of datanet IT, says the partnership is a natural fit for datanet IT and is a welcome addition to the company’s robust selection of IT solutions.

“This partnership aligns perfectly with our mission to provide customers with state-of-the-art solutions designed to grow with their businesses,” says Muir. “Digital Watchdog has been leading the way in digital surveillance for a long time. As a leading IT solutions provider, we pride ourselves on always being ahead of the game with the technology industry. Our partnership is another example of that, and we’re proud to offer integrated surveillance to even more businesses in the Bay Area.”
