Snap One has announced a U.S. distribution partnership with Digital Watchdog, a leader in surveillance and video analytics, to provide Snap One Partners access to the manufacturer’s security products. There have been 51 Digital Watchdog SKUs added to Local Partner Stores nationwide, and Snap One will be releasing this curated product mix on its e-commerce platform in Q1.
Digital Watchdog offers complete solutions including a video management system (VMS), edge analytics, and server-side analytics. These are all fully compatible with many of Snap One’s current product offerings, as well as all major manufacturers in the video market. By combining software and hardware, a video management system helps users automatically monitor events from any number of surveillance cameras, alarms, or sensors. VMS hardware can include cameras, encoders for analog camera systems, and servers for video processing and storage.
Current Digital Watchdog dealers will be able to port their existing authorized dealer status into Snap One’s system, while uninitiated dealers can quickly become authorized dealers through a form available at all Local Partner Stores and the e-commerce platform once the product is launched. Snap One eCom will be able to handle Authorized status, but any special pricing from the standard authorized tier will be handled at a Local location. Some products require licenses to unlock additional capabilities or integrate with existing systems, and the licenses will also be handled through Local Partner Stores. Given the manufacturer’s wide product catalog, any items beyond the 51 officially stocked Digital Watchdog SKUs will be available for special order through Local Partner Store branches.
In addition to accruing one point per dollar spent on a Digital Watchdog purchase, Partners can also register large projects for specific Digital Watchdog discounts and benefits, as well as earn manufacturer discounts through progressive sales tiers on an annual basis.
