Cam-Era Franchise for Sale

  Cam Era 200

Why is NOW the best time to buy a security franchise in SA?


Until now people have been protecting their families and assets with ‘blind alarms’ or CCTV. Both of which offer zero detection in the event of a total power outage. Our primary product is the VIDEOFIED Eskom-free intruder alarm system complete with VIDEO VERIFICATION and backup support that may be purchased outright on rented.

In addition, our fight-back system allows us to SHOUT directly at the intruders, contain their movements by remotely opening and closing doors or, if necessary, blast them with sirens, lights, fog or PEPPER GAS. This is available to all customers that have risk concerns. Applications of this system are limited by the franchisees imagination, and already include, all COMMERCIAL, RETAIL and INDUSTRIAL sites, lock-ups, cigarette and liquor stores, petrol stations, cash offices, copper installations and HOMES.

What you get for your investment

Our franchise model allows franchisees to spend every day in customer facing activities instead of being distracted by staff, finance, procurement, and operational concerns may well be a world first. Working alone yet interdependently means that franchisees benefit from a lower start-up and set-up cost which ultimately allows them to achieve a faster return on their investment. It’s a work from home opportunity, therefore no premises are required.
The franchise package includes a 5th generation iPad/iPhone 8 as well as an i7 Laptop complete with clic2quote, Windows 365, a Videofied demo kit and all templates needed to build a business.
As the franchise aspect of the business is brand new no historical figures are available at this time, however we project that, when correctly implemented, the Cam Era business model will afford franchisees the opportunity to develop a substantial monthly leveraged income that can eventually be sold or retained as a legacy.

The initial training comprises two weeks of field and classroom training and an extensive evaluation. After approximately three months franchisees will attend a refresher sales training course that covers professional selling skills, security technology, technical aspects of the products and systems, how to conduct a risk assessment, business acumen and financial management.


In addition to training, coaching and mentoring the franchisor provides administrative, operational technical support and also assumes responsibility for the company’s procurement, pricing and product policies.

Franchisees must to be hardworking and sales driven. They should also be trainable, be able to work with the support of a dedicated team. Whilst not a prerequisite, it is desirable that franchisees enjoy the support of their family as they embark on this new venture. Sincere enthusiasm is the biggest trait we look for in our applicants, the rest we can teach.

Cam Era 200
Cam Era was originally started in May 1993 as a CCTV installations company. In 2009 we realised that our future lies in duplicating our business system and decided to pursue franchising a means of building our company footprint both locally and internationally. 
We started with the brand ibotix, a full system integrator type business model offering CCTV, access, booms, gates, alarms, fencing, fibre optics, wi-fi and the like. However, the complexity of the business model proved challenging for novice business owners to manage and made it difficult for them to achieve a return on investment within a reasonable time frame. With these lessons duly noted we developed a simpler, faster more lucrative model. Partnering with Videofied and Macado allowed us to create the finely focused, robust franchise model known as Cam Era.
The South African security sector is valued at between R15-billion and R22-billion per annum
