TREND Networks has announced an initiative which will see a range of its cable, network and camera installation and test equipment stocked in selected ADI branches.

Trend Networks products available at ADI stores.

“We have tripled our growth with ADI as a TREND Networks distributor, so we are very excited that eight of TREND Networks’ dependable testers will be stocked on shelves in ADI stores, initially in 22 branches in the Southwest of the US, later expanding to further stores across North America,” said Mike Grindele, VP North America Sales, for TREND Networks in a statement.

“To celebrate this new development, we are also offering customers at ADI a special Rewards promotion, where they can receive selected free equipment up to the value of $257.”

The products stocked at ADI are already available in 11 stores and have all been  selected with the practical needs of security installers in mind. For example, the SecuriTEST IP CCTV tester, which is designed to reduce the amount of equipment an installer needs to take to site. The company said this solution does the job of a cable tester, a PoE injector, a monitor, a laptop, and many other tools, and can be used to power, test, and configure IP, analog, and HD coax cameras, speeding up installation and troubleshooting.

“Importantly, SecuriTEST IP also features advanced reporting to enable installers to document performance on site in detail, rather than filling in excel documents to create reports,” said Grindele in a statement.

“When an issue arises, the proof of performance reports can dependably demonstrate both camera images and network configuration, making return visits to site billable.”

PoE Pro is another key product that will support installers in verifying that a security camera on an Ethernet network has enough power to function, rather than relying on trial and error.

ADI branches will also stock TREND Networks’ new Tone and Probe kit. This will support security installers in finding the end of any networked cable and the discovery of what it is plugged into, even in the case that they are not familiar with the initial installation or that the network and ports have not been labelled sufficiently.

“Our VDV II Pro will also be available as it is an absolute essential for every security installer for verifying that data cabling is terminated correctly – issues often come from human error, so this verifier is designed to tell you instantly if there are any miswires,” said Grindele in a statement.
