Surveillance cameras are a useful and effective tool to enhance business safety and security. But, if you work with any government agencies, or plan to at some point, you need to make sure your business’ surveillance cameras are NDAA compliant. The NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) enacted a set of federal laws in 2019 that prohibits the use of any cameras or surveillance equipment that is manufactured or has components manufactured, by a particular list of companies that are primarily based in the People’s Republic of China. There are a lot of electronics and surveillance cameras (as well as components) manufactured in China so it is important to ensure your cameras are NDAA compliant if you work with any government agencies.
Avoid Contract Loss with NDAA-Compliant Surveillance Systems
Because federal agencies are banned from purchasing equipment from select brands, they cannot do business with any contractors that use surveillance technology from those brands. Whether you work with any federal agency, are a government or military property, or simply want to be particularly careful about your business’s security, you should work with a security company that is knowledgeable and experienced in installing NDAA-compliant surveillance systems.
Current List of NDAA-Banned Surveillance System Companies:
- ZTE Corporation
- Dahua Technology Company
- Huawei Technologies Company
- Hytera Communications Corporation
- Hangzhou Hikvision Digital Technology Company
Maximize Security and Compliance with an NDAA Audit of Your Surveillance System
There are many NDAA-compliant surveillance system brands but the best way to know if your business is compliant and able to accept contracts with a federal agency is to have an experienced NDAA-compliant surveillance system installer audit your current surveillance system and/or design your new system. This will include a comprehensive look at not just your primary surveillance system technology but all components as well. In doing so, you will not only have peace of mind that your surveillance and security are optimized, but that your business is NDAA compliant and able to accept any federal agency contracts for your business.
