About Security Warehouse

Partnering with SCW for a totally integrated security solution.

The global security landscape is constantly evolving, with new technology and the convergence with information technology and communication. Effective integration of the various applications will remain crucial.

Vision and Mission

Since its inception in 1997, Security and Communication Warehouse (SCW) has grown into one of the leading South African importers and distributors of CCTV, access control and electronic security equipment. Besides world class infrastructure and people to support its position in the market, SCW boasts a highly specialised in-house laboratory testing facility, as well as a training academy.

SCW Exchange Policy is a rare practice that limits disruption to service delivery. The company will exchange an item, such as a camera, PCB or energiser over the counter*.

Use of in-house facilities includes a multi-million-Rand stockholding to meet customer demand; an impressive demo room that displays the latest in electronic security and acts as a venue for free demonstrations on the digital video recording (DVR) systems, and networking video recording (NVR) systems and an extensive range of cameras and other proven solutions; a fully-fledged laboratory, where various cameras can be exhaustively tested and compared in terms of TV lines, resolution, picture quality, lux levels, absolute darkness (with IR light) and direct bright light (for number plate recognition).

Free quotations by the competent sales and technical teams eliminate uncertainties and optimise the solution value. In qualified and more complex cases, SCW offers pre-sales assistance to help understand, determine project scope and quote on customer needs. *A nominal cost may apply.
