We offer an end-to-end service covering every aspect of the design and supply of security systems
How We Are Different
We provide forensic diagnosis of a project, developing an in-depth understanding of needs in order to supply a complete IP-based solution.
We are not just a distributor. We have extensive knowledge of IT infrastructures and take a consultancy approach with projects.
We offer a single point of contact service from the product purchase stage right through to after-sales service.
We can offer up to five years next business day onsite warranty for our storage and server solutions. We offer a range of warranties to suit project requirements.
We offer the best pre-sales and post-sales support. And our experience means that we can handle projects of any size.
We are distributors for the best brands in the industry, delivering the most cutting-edge technology available. We supply a wide range of products, from cameras to video software, access control, speakers and lighting from brands such as Milestone, Avigilon, ACTi and Paxton. We also supply a range of wireless solutions and server and storage products.
Network design and supply
GVD has designed and commissioned networks for both the IT and security sectors. We can design a new network using our manufacturer partners, or – as is the case with many existing infrastructures – we can make recommendations for integrations into an existing network infrastructure, helping to maximize the current investment.
Server and storage design and supply
We specialise in server and storage solutions, optimised for video surveillance. We build servers to exact operational specifications – from off-the-shelf solutions to bespoke designs, including multi-server and multi-site installations. We understand the importance of the site operating as normal when issues arise. Our solid partnerships with software and hardware manufacturers mean we can help diagnose problems that are either software or hardware related.
Solution and integrations design
GVD will consider the application and design of a suitable solution incorporating network infrastructure, server and storage considerations, camera types and integrations with access control, intruder alarms, video analytics and other third party integrations.
Pre-configuration of hardware and software
We offer a pre-configuration service. This can include assigning IP addresses to cameras and installing Milestone video management software to configuring network infrastructure hardware. Many security integrators opt for this service in order to reduce their onsite time. It means that when you receive your solution from GVD, it is ready to go out of the box – all you have to do is mount, connect and power-up.
Intelligent wireless and Wi-Fi
GVD supplies a range of wireless solutions, including fully managed Wi-Fi solutions suitable for schools, colleges, universities campus, hotels, apartment complexes, office blocks and large event venues. We also supply a range of outdoor solutions, including point-to-point and multi-point solutions that are suitable for multiple applications – including CCTV and voice or data solutions.
Remote and onsite support and commissioning
Remote support and commissioning can be billed on an hourly basis, making it a very cost-effective service. We also offer onsite support, with advanced certified engineers attending site to assist with new installations or maintenance. This service is offered at a discounted rate to customers who have purchased from GVD. We have a dedicated technical support team to back up the solutions we provide, and are always available to answer technical queries or give recommendations – providing you with the right expertise to get the job completed.
Installer and end user training
We train security solution installers in IP networking and video surveillance. Our dedicated training centre (the nIPx, in Dublin 12) offers state of the art facilities with a fully integrated demonstration security system. We offer hands-on practical training to sell, specify, install and maintain IP-based security solutions. We are the only certified Irish trainer for Milestone. To meet the increasing needs of consulting engineers in the area of solution design, we run CPD certified courses to support them with the tender specification process.
