Client Wants Arecont With Digital Watchdog?

We have never used Arecont but it seems like from what I read here, I may want to have the client use a different camera?

 

The camera will have to work with DW's Spectrum software

What is it about Arecont that they want or like? I ask because knowing that would allow for better suggestions about what to offer or counter with.

For example, if they want a low-cost repositionable multi-imager, the Axis P3707-PVE (Tested) would be a good alternative.

They have an existing DW BlackJack NVR with 24 Arecont cameras. They just want to stick with the same. All I know is they are Megadome2 2MP varifocal cameras. I am trying to get the exact model. I will be pushing for a different manufacturer.

As you know, Arecont's single imager cameras don't have much competitive differentiation, so it would be fairly easy to offer many rival 2MP or higher varifocal cameras.

Spectrum = Watchdog

Arecont = Watch, dog!
