CCTV Online Stores Dying Out?

Back when I started IPVM, there was lots and lots of online stores selling CCTV and video surveillance. It was a little ridiculous, especially with most sense low-quality stuff and using low-quality marketing tactics.

In the past year or two, I rarely see or hear from those companies. The obvious exceptions are the really big, generally broad, online retailers who seem to dominate now more than ever. Related, it is harder to even find those smaller stores on Google anymore, which may be one of the root causes of their decline.

What are you seeing? Any thoughts?
