Tell us the story of your company.
AR: Having a founding team that came from a tech background, Vosker wanted to solve the remote monitoring problem (i.e., places where you can’t wire down electricity or internet connectivity) for their friends and families. After a few months of testing and developing, we came up with the first version of what would be the V200, a Vosker success story product. Our team of employees is always pushing towards a new era of connectivity with the Vosker product line. Today, we are selling our products in North America, but also in Europe, and are always working on the next innovation.
Since January 2020, Vosker is a member of the Techno-X Group, which gathers, to this date, five companies specialized in technology and customer service to provide the best support and products to their clients.
What solutions/services does your business offer in the security industry? And what makes your offerings/company unique?
AR: In 2019, Vosker revolutionized the security market by designing and manufacturing the world’s first wireless security camera. Vosker’s cameras are weatherproof and resistant to all conditions, from cold winter temperatures to hot summer days. We also offer the most reliable, flexible and secure cellular system available on the market today, making the company an important player in the security industry.
The Vosker V200, our most innovative product to date, is the only 100% wireless, solar-powered mobile security camera available on the market. Requiring no Wi-Fi connection thanks to its LTE cellular connection, the Vosker V200 works where the competitors’ cameras cannot. Equipped with infrared lights providing unparallelled night vision, it also offers a wide adjustable angle motion detector to cover a larger area of land. In addition, Vosker is the only company to offer a GPS positioning system which allows consumers to know the exact location of their camera.
Our mobile application for iOS and Android systems allows users to configure their camera and view the photos it took at any time of the day. Thanks to the image recognition system capable of distinguishing humans and motor vehicles, the user receives a notification as soon as a suspicious movement is detected by their camera.
What is something we might not know about your company – or something new you are doing in security?
AR: Vosker is a company that prides itself on promoting gender parity. In an industry that is mainly dominated by men, 50 percent of Vosker’s team is made up of women.
I was proud to be nominated as general manager last January. There are very few women in executive positions in the security industry, and I am always working on new ideas to bring the best security system on the market. Vosker is an innovative company with modern values which is only at the beginning of its success.
What does SIA offer that is most important to you/your company? And what do you most hope to get out of your membership with SIA?
AR: Vosker participated in the SIA New Product Showcase in 2019 and won the Video Surveillance Mobile Solutions category award with the V200. This award was a game changer for us to get more credibility as a company, and it helped us build relationships in the security industry. Being a member of SIA is also the opportunity to get more knowledge on the market and design security cameras that are efficient. We are looking forward to continuing to collaborate with SIA and participating in the next virtual events.
