Electronic Solution

In today’s business environment it is critical to provide solutions to our clients to meet the end-users individual needs. Traditionally the main threat would have applied to valuables, these days there can be additional threats to data, equipment, and records. The scope of potential offenders has also increased and now includes walk-in thieves, opportunistic contractors, time theft, ghost employees, and disgruntled ex-employees. To combat these threats, DHD offers comprehensive hardware and software.

Access Control

Our access control products are designed to provide the ultimate peace of mind solution for our system integrators. They allow authorized access to areas of the building and deny access to those who have no need or right to be there. Our access control solutions are both flexible and scalable. The systems can operate on Wiegand, finger vein, proximity, infra-red and smart control, biometric, hand geometry, or facial recognition systems. Each system is provided with a windows style administration program for total control and provides easy to use reports.

Time & Attendance

Our Time & Attendance software has been developed to make use of the internationally recognized SAGEM biometric hardware and Mifare read/write card technology. Our software solution has secure encryption that allows multi-factor user authentication or verification and allows for preset cash payouts. Our superior cutting edge biometric search server application eliminates ghost beneficiaries and unauthorized payments are eliminated.  

Ip Audio & Surveillance

The presence of IP CCTV surveillance and security lighting provides one of the biggest deterrents to would-be criminals. Criminals prefer to operate unobserved and therefore shy away from areas protected by CCTV, opting for “softer” targets. DHD will provide our system integrators with worldwide brands of CCTV for the best solution for their premises using our years of experience in providing the best proposal.

Rugged cell phones and tablets
