KAYSVILLE — Doug Reed knows Davis County.
He also knows digital security systems, which is part of the reason he has his own company called Advent Digital Video in Kaysville.
“We’ve done security systems for a lot of major companies in Utah,” said Reed, who was born and raised in Davis County and graduated from Viewmont High School. “We have contracts from youth corrections facilities, the driver’s license division and many schools in the county and the state.”
Reed started the company in 2004 when he saw the need for having better security systems in a person’s home or business. The system he developed, according to Reed, is more advanced because of the operating system.
“It’s easier to use,” he said. “It’s in real time, has DVD quality picture and sound, and can all be operated from anytime at any place that we set up for the customer.”
The expandability of the system is also crucial, he said. Up to 64 cameras can be installed and seen from just one place.
“It also is able to store up to 30 days worth of surveillance and is affordable to most people looking for some type of security in their home.”
Advent Digital Video is located at 1205 Flint Meadows Drive, Suite 3 in Kaysville. To find out more about the company, visit their website at www.adventdvr.com.
