Hikvision 50% Price Drop Promotion

Just noticed a 50% price drop on HIkvision cameras. They're starting as low as 60-70 € now. With that price erosion rate, it makes me wonder how much time and effort i should keep spending on video surveillance projects? Sure, they'll sell more cameras and compensate the lesser margin with higher volumes but for us, there's a limit on the number of cameras you can install in any give amount of time. Hence, we'll be making less profit with the same effort. That's not an appealing future for this industry
