Cheap China Products Lose to a MN Company and LawMate
St Paul, MN based Elite Asset Protection has joined forces with LawMate Technology Co, Ltd. of Taiwan to stomp out cheap products from China and it’s working! With an increase in US law enforcement needs for high quality covert video recording solutions and civilians eager to do their own work, sales are steadily climbing. Students should also be reconsidering their actions with the release of an all new LawMate cell phone detector to help prevent covert texting during exams.
Local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies rely on U.S. companies such as St. Paul, MN based Elite Asset Protection to provide them with the tools they need to conduct investigations. Elite Asset Protection, trying to remain competitive with other vendors was forced to import surveillance equipment from China, which backfired! Faced with growing returns of these cheap surveillance devices, owner Mark Nicholson found himself in quite a quandary. "We were seeing an unusually high return rate on products that looked fine on the outside but were built with poor standards on the inside", says Mark. That's when he discovered LawMate Technology Co, Ltd. of Taiwan.
Thanks to Elite Asset Protection, LawMate gear
is now passing the competition with high end video surveillance and recording solutions in a market littered with cheap electronics. From tiny cameras that can be worn as buttons to inspection cameras designed to fit through cracks and see inside dark areas, these devices are proving superior by use, sales, and an increased US market share that’s following previous European trends.
Europe has been a prime example of an early adopter for video camera use. While London boasts one of the highest camera coverage areas in the world, they’ve also been outfitting officers with body worn video units. An officer equipped with a body worn video recorder provides evidence and video for review in conflicting or unclear situations. This trend seems to be catching on in the US as police departments adopt these recorders to provide evidence in situations requiring necessary force. Cops aren’t the only buyers of this equipment.
Civilians, undercover journalists, and Private Investigators also seem to be doing more of their own video surveillance work. Whether it's a pocket clip DVR or a hidden button camera paired with a pocket recorder, individuals are able to obtain video proof and evidence of the things they see and encounter. Customers have also been using the gear to pull together their own solutions. One example is a in-vehicle video recorder to provide evidence in the event of an accident (a popular setup for those subject to auto collision lawsuits while driving a company vehicle). Cheating students should be on the lookout too!
Another popular LawMate product (soon to be released) is the Cell Phone Detector
. A growing concern among schools and teachers has been the use of cell phones in the classroom. Some students have figured out how to covertly text each other during an exam, share answers, and of course, just gossip - all during class time. Preventative measures have proven difficult in banning the use of cell phones during class, thus a detector comes at an opportune time.
