Advanced Video Analytics
A video analytics tool that allows customers to judge traffic moving in and out of their property and gain insight into activity during certain times, such as holidays and peak hours.
A camera with heat detection capabilities that alerts a monitor when it sees fire or smoke. These cameras can also determine fluctuations in temperature and can monitor smoke stacks or furnaces for changes which may be critical in indicating a potential problem before it occurs.
Together with YSG’s management, IEV’s investment committee see both current, and future prospects in a very positive and profitable light. As crime levels in SA have continue to rise, more and more pro-active security systems are sought after. The recent experience is that crime has been exacerbated by the lockdown and negative impact on the economy and worsening levels of unemployment throughout the country.
Both Impact Investment Africa and IEV VCC are very confident that this newly acquired relationship between YSG and our S12J VCC will yield great returns for the F share class S12J investors and the company as well.
