Dahua welcomes high-level UK trade and investment delegation to China

Dahua Technology’s global headquarters in China was recently visited by a senior trade delegation from Leeds as part of a trip to capitalise on existing trade arrangements and reinforce a long-standing relationship between the region and the Chinese city of Hangzhou.

Among the Leeds City Region delegation were representatives from Leeds City Council, Kirklees Council, the West Yorkshire Combined Authority, Bradford Council, the Universities of Bradford, Leeds and Huddersfield and businesses from the region. In addition to discussing co-operative business opportunities, the visitors also enjoyed a tour of Dahua’s headquarters, including the cutting-edge demonstration room.

The visit comes on the back of Dahua Technology’s UK subsidiary opening a new office in Leeds to provide support for local distributors, integrators and installers, as well as deliver training and client demonstrations.

“This trade and investment mission will build on our long and prestigious relationships with our Chinese partners,” said Councillor Judith Blake, leader of Leeds City Council. “We saw a hugely positive outcome of this activity with the announcement that Hangzhou-based Dahua is opening an office in Leeds. They join Hisense, which has its UK headquarters in Leeds, and Silver Cross owner Fosun. We want to encourage more investment and trade between our cities.”

Significant growth

As part of a presentation to the delegation party, Jason Zhao (Dahua vice-president and general manager of the Overseas Business Centre), said: “We’re very honoured to be part of this historical development, having held a relationship with Leeds before we were even established in the UK. Three years ago, we opened our first UK office with only a few people and even fewer local employees. We’ve had significant growth over these past three years, whereby we now have over 40 people supporting the UK and Ireland markets. Three of them are staff hired from Leeds and the surrounding area.”

Hangzhou and Leeds have been partnered since 1988, co-operating in the fields of business, education and culture and resulting in links between many businesses and public bodies.

The Leeds City Region covers Barnsley, Bradford, Calderdale, Craven, Harrogate, Kirklees, Leeds, Selby, Wakefield and York. It has a £1 billion-plus Local Growth Deal to boost jobs and growth across the region. It’s also home to the UK’s largest regional financial centre and has a digital technology sector now worth more than £6.6 billion.

Dahua UK to open northern office in ‘partner’ city of Leeds

Dahua Technology is expanding its presence in the UK with the opening of a new office in Leeds. This is the first time that Dahua – the world’s second-largest video surveillance solutions manufacturer – has expanded in the UK beyond its existing offices in Maidenhead, Berkshire.

The new northern office will be located at the White Rose Office Park in Millshaw Park Lane, Leeds, which is around four miles south of the city centre. With its handy location between the M62, M1 and M621 and also with nearby rail connections to Leeds city centre, the new office boasts excellent transport links.

The main aim of establishing a permanent presence in the North of England is for Dahua to provide better support for its local distributors, integrators and installers, as well as to offer training locally and provide a local base for partner events and client demonstrations.

Dahua Technology’s global headquarters in China is located in Hangzhou, a city that has been twinned with Leeds since 1988. It was no surprise, then, when the company approached Leeds City Council to help the business find a suitable location for its new offices. The link between the two cities generates co-operation in the fields of business, education and culture. Last year, officials and representatives from the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership visited Dahua’s global headquarters as part of a delegation to Hangzhou and Shanghai.

Dahua’s connections with Leeds and the fact that its home city of Hangzhou is twinned with the ‘Northern Powerhouse’ have resulted in links with many local companies and public bodies. “Working with a proactive organisation such as Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership really helps us, because the partnership goes out of its way to create mutually beneficial business activities,” explained Ben Perkins, head of marketing for Dahua UK and Ireland.

Perkins added: “The partnership attracts business and international money to the region, which not only makes a positive impact on the lives of the people who live and work in Leeds, but also brings a great wealth of talent into the area. This will benefit Dahua as we grow our presence in the region.”

Councillor Judith Blake, leader of Leeds City Council, stated: “Leeds has a long and prestigious relationship with China. Our trade and investment missions have helped build relationships. It’s great to welcome Dahua to Leeds as a result of this activity. We will be holding a series of business meetings in Hong Kong, Hangzhou and Qingdao to review how our cities can work together to increase trade and deliver economic growth.”

The Leeds City Region covers Barnsley, Bradford, Calderdale, Craven, Harrogate, Kirklees, Leeds, Selby, Wakefield and York, and has a £1 billion-plus Local Growth Deal in place to boost jobs and growth across the region. It’s home to the UK’s largest regional financial centre and has a digital technology sector now worth more than £6.6 billion.

Dahua and GJD partnership delivers advanced detector-activated surveillance

Dahua Technology’s network video recorders (NVRs) now have a direct integration with IP-based outdoor detectors from GJD Manufacturing Limited. This integration provides end users with high quality and reliable detector-activated surveillance and monitoring.

The D-TECT IP range of detectors and Clarius PLUS IP illuminators have been integrated with Dahua’s NVR6-4KS2 range, an enterprise-level NVR providing up to 4K resolution. Its open architecture supports multi-user access and it’s compatible with ONVIF 2.4, enabling interoperability when combined with third party 4K cameras.

The NVR includes intelligent video analytics to detect people and moving objects, as well as other predetermined events, such as abandoned or missing objects, tripwire detection, people counting and facial detection.

ClariusDTECTIP

The integration was achieved by incorporating GJD’s API on a special firmware that enables the NVR to accept alarms from the detectors and link them to the recorder’s functions.

The BS 8418-compliant IP detectors are suitable for intruder monitoring, CCTV surveillance and other alarm warning requirements, providing both volumetric and long-range narrow field-of-view sensing, in addition to remote programming.

Eric Wang, head of product support for Dahua UK and Ireland, said: “We’re thrilled to have integrated our NVRs with GJD’s IP detectors, providing a professional detection and alarm monitoring solution that’s a fantastic addition to our security portfolio.”

Mark Tibbenham, GJD’s managing director, commented: “We are delighted to partner with Dahua Technology. The integration of Dahua’s surveillance products with GJD’s D-TECT IP motion detectors and Clarius illuminators will provide end users with high quality, reliable and efficient surveillance solutions.”
