The Catches: CCTV in Sri Lanka

As one of the few companies in Sri Lanka that provide proper high end CCTV Solutions we face a major problem when it comes to marketing and sales now because of the really cheap CCTV Solutions available in the market today. You know what I’m talking about – those little Rs. 2,500/- adverts in the Hit-AD with prepaid phone numbers advertising CCTV Systems with Four Cameras for only Rs. 55,000/-.

Merry Christmas!

Safety First When You’re Hanging By a Moment

Safety First When You’re Hanging By a Moment

A body harness is protective equipment designed to protect a person, from injury when working in scenarios where they are suspended above ground. Usually utilised as a ‘Fall Arrest’ system, a body harness is fabricated out of rope and cables (usually made out of polyester) and system that locks the rope or cables in a way that safely secures the person utilising it. A body harness also adheres to the Occupational Safety and Health guidelines which relate to employees working on jobs that relate height, such as what IDawn Technologies undertakes, with concern to laying cables alongside building shafts or on the outer walls of the buildings itself.  At IDawn Technologies, we put our employee’s safety first, whilst ensuring that the job gets done.

The All Mighty Category 5 Cable

The All Mighty Category 5 Cable

Category 5 cable, or CAT5 as it is commonly know has lived a long and very accomplished life. From the day that the standard was first introduced in August of 1991 (yes, CAT5 is older than some of you guys reading this!) CAT5 has been working hard to carry all our bits and bytes to networked computers, letting us share files, browse the internet, and stream video, all at 100 Megabits per second. In 2001 CAT5 got a serious upgrade with an e, and CAT5e was released to give us speeds of up to 1 GBPS to handle all our Video, VoIP, and Application Sharing needs.
