Got a Marketing Email From Acti This Morning. Remember Them?

In this "race to zero" in hardware, I wonder if they may be suffering the most. Acti was my low cost go to brand in the early/mid years of IP, like 2009-2012, but I haven't sold a one in the last 2+ years. Also the quasi independent rebranders like Ipx are probably feeliing it as well. Just hard to argue with a branded 3mpxl Hikvision for $100. Any similar experiences?
