Smye-Rumsby Ltd

These body worn cameras have proven invaluable in the short time that we have been using them. The cameras not only provide proof of scheduled patrols, they offer a visual deterrent against any antisocial behavior. They are an essential ‘extra pair of eyes’ and provide undisputable evidence of behaviour and conduct directed towards my security team in potentially volatile situations.


Smye-Rumsby Ltd

Smye Rumsby provided an excellent service right from the first consultation. They listened to our needs and the needs of our business and designed a system to meet those requirements and budget. Full site coverage is now achieved providing crystal clear communications throughout the entire site. Critically, the battery life of the radios has been extended hugely. We now be assuranced that if any of our team require immediate assistance, instant, clear and reliable communications are at their fingers tips.


Smye-Rumsby Ltd

We’re very pleased with the new radios, We have good transmission, noise cancellation and excellent coverage, but most importantly, our communications are encrypted which is hugely important to the organisation. We’re looking to extend DPAC out to further parts of the Dover area with confidence that we’ll be able to communicate safely and clearly, and help our members prevent crime.
