Did Hikvision Go Direct? (Ezviv)

EZVIZ is Hikvision's P2P cloud offering. But is it more than just water vapor?

There are camera and camera kits on Amazon sold by EZVIZ.

$699 for 8 channel 1080p system is pretty cheap.

Recently it was reported that

During a tour of its vertical-focused exhibition space, a Hikvision staffer discussed the company’s EZVIZ suite of cloud-based DIY security cameras and related home automation products. The company said the portfolio will not be sold through the dealer channel and is instead marketed to consumers via Amazon and Sam’s Club.

What's the deal?

[UPDATE: The answer is yes, Hikvision Launches Direct End User Sales]
