Many Exacq integrators are talking about alternatives to Exacq. The reason? Tyco is their scariest / biggest enemy. They do not want to compete against them with their own product (Tyco the integrator + Exacq, the Tyco product division). Indeed, it is like selling American Dynamics / Intellex.
While I think some of the fears are overblown, they are certainly real and many will have to do due diligence on alternatives. This post is to facilitate that.
Obviously, there are hundreds of VMSes / NVRs, so such discussions like this have the risk of spinning out of control.
Here's how I recommend we focus it:
- Focus on rivals that are similar to Exacq - mid market professional offering with appliances and software only.
- Respond to specific integrator requests - Members feel free to ask for advice specific for your needs.
Ok, that said, what alternatives, and why, would you recommend?
