Counterpoints To Internal Pressure To Pursue "Costco" Type Video Solutions

Greetings all,

After navigating through various internal conversations regarding a much needed video update, I have run into a particularly stubborn partner that is convinced we can solve our video needs via an "off the shelf" solution at Costco/Sams etc. My counterpoints are below but I would appreciate any feedback on other decision drivers that support a more capable/professional system.... or would be interested in hearing from anyone on here that supports an enterprise wide deployment of off the shelf systems. Thanks in advance....

  • Central Management System
  • Hierarchy Management
  • Health Alerts
  • Enterprise wide firmware updates
  • Increased camera options
  • Improved Retention
  • POS/Video Integration
  • Better Controls - assign user rights for live video, archived video, or export of video
