I recommend that you look at the ds-2df8223 darkfighter ptz. It is about the same price. Also, be sure to get a jbp juction box adapter with all hikvision ptz cameras (as well as the wmpl). Well thought out hardware. Sorry, I have no experience with this recording solution. I am not sure if 123 sells the cameras with supported upgrades. I doubt it.

The 8223 is unreal in low light (in color) and has a broad line of analytics. The Hikvision usa support is stellar (if you buy through proper channels). We use Exacqvision, which has almost no latency with the Hikvision PTZ cameras. ACTI served us well 2008-2009, but it is apparent that their USA sales and technical support has had dramatic hits over the last year or two. The firmware is kind of clunky and lacks features.
I looked into the Exacqvision software but don't see the 2MP DS-2DF8223I-AEL supported:
How were you able to get it to work with Exacqvision?
