ADI Expo Questions "Laughable If They Weren't Genuine"

I recommended member John D to go to his local ADI expo. He is not pleased with the event nor probably me for that matter.

Here is his review of the ADI expo. Lots of interesting comments though this stood out:

The questions being asked would be laughable if they weren't genuine.

  • "Does Hikvision have tornado detection?"
  • "Do you make wireless PTZ cameras? I have no way to run any wires to the pole (meaning no power either)"
  • "Can the camera still alert me if the camera loses power"

What do you think? Believe it? If so, what does that say about the industry? What can be done?
