Looking to see if anyone has installed/tested the updated Arecont SurroundVideo G5 or omni G2 series. I have used the older models of both series and seeing if the new units have fixed some of the issues they had.
Arecont Surround/Omni G2 Experiences?
Can't speak to the old issues, but I can tell you our experience with 2 we just installed (not a large sample, I know). One of them seems to be working perfectly, no issues after about a month. The second had what I'm guessing was a bad sensor on one of the cameras pop up after about a week. Video turned purple and won't correct despite being rebooted, etc. Replacement camera is on the way now I believe, but I haven't talked to the tech today to know for sure.
The customer is EXTREMELY pleased with the one that is worked based on the use-case we have, which was covering two entrances to the building about 100' apart and the parking lot. Nothing high-speed so no framerate issues, good lighting around the building so night images are decent (although could be better), and they're pleased with the quality of the image.
