Dallmeier Sourcing Policy

Development and manufacturing in Germany

Dallmeier develops and manufactures all camera and recording systems as well as software in Regensburg, Germany. The components of the Dallmeier camera and recording systems as well as the software are manufactured by Dallmeier certified companies within a radius of less than 200 km. However, some components can no longer be sourced regionally for quality or functional reasons. When “global sourcing” these components, we closely adhere to the strict German ISO specifications and conduct visits and audits at our suppliers several times a year.

Privacy & Security by Design

Dallmeier attaches significant importance to the IT security of its systems. For this reason, Dallmeier camera and recording systems only run software that we developed in-house. This applies to the application as well as the operating system and firmware level. In addition, all hardware and software systems are subjected to extensive security and penetration tests by independent external experts. Here, too, we attach foremost importance to Germany as a production location and as a democratic constitutional state with the highest data protection standards.
