A Look at Whether IDIS America Has Lived Up to the Lofty Claims of Its 2015 Debut

When South Korean end-to-end security manufacturer IDIS expanded into the American market following well-received debuts of the company’s brand business (and then-new flagship DirectIP® true plug-and-play platform) in Asia, Europe, and the Middle East, North American integrators and end-users quickly became familiar with the promised benefits of the company’s end-to-end IDIS Total Solution. Then, as now, IDIS advertised bringing radical simplicity and speed to even the most complex of installations (analog, IP, new, upgraded, and mixed technology alike), with reduced maintenance, training, and total costs to boot, because of the company’s single-source, in-house designed, development, and manufacturing.

IDIS speaks of game-changing ease of use and low total cost of ownership with a powerful range of guaranteed backward/forward compatible offerings, and benefits that include an industry-leading warranty on most recorders they order. Recognizing the real test of any technology company’s claim is the success of the offerings in real-world environments, the use cases below answer the question of whether IDIS, as promised, is truly able to meet “any surveillance need, of any size.”
