Following the recent bold steps taken by leading trade distributor Solutions Group to add to its already extensive product portfolio with the addition of new trade distribution arms, the company is noting with interest a steady shift in the buying patterns of its trade customers.

The introduction just over a year ago of new operating division Security Solutions, a specialist trade distributor of electronic security equipment, has not only attracted a new type of customer to Solutions Group, but has also led to existing customers broadening their own product range. Domestic TV & Satellite installers appear to be embracing new opportunities to diversify their business and increase their service offering by introducing products they can quickly and

easily obtain from a wholesaler with an established and trusted background.

Broader Business A growing number of customers are adding CCTV cameras and DVRs to their ususkla orders of aerials and LNBs. Solutions Group Sales Manager Jo Griffiths has been surprised at the number of installers who are taking on new product ranges and trying new ideas to help grow their business. “We thought we might see some cross-over among domestic installers seeing the chance to add to to the list of services they provide,” said Griffiths, “but the number of people who are actively adding new strings to their bow in this way is far different from what we first imagined.”

Proving particularly popular are a range of security kits from Armed which include four indoor/outdoor cameras, a remote control DVR with 4 or 9 channels depending on model, and all cabling required for installing the system as well as for connection to the user’s monitor or TV. These one-box solutions are ideally suited as ready-made security systems for domestic properties and smaller retail premises. The 500GB 9-channel model allows for the connection of up to 5 further cameras in addition to the 4 included units and therefore provides excellent monitoring capability for larger commercial sites.
