We have some detractors on Facebook, here is a fascinating response:
We tested this, e.g., ADI's W Box Camera / NVR Gen 1 (Hikvision) Tested, ADI W-Box Dropping Hikvision, Using Sunell (Tested). And it is not rocket science to prove this.
For example, ADI shows Sunell's model number in their system, e.g.,
The new W Box cameras use the same OUI as Sunell, 00:1C:27, shown below:
The 'ADI' W-Box cameras and NVR were discovered using Sunell's Search Tool, shown below.
Lie Or Kept In The Dark
As for this person speaking to a 'Directir' of Residio (note: that is the new corporate name for ADI / Honeywell Home), we have no idea who he spoke to or even if he did speak to anyone there.
However, are there really people in 2018 who do not know that either (1) manufacturers can lie or (2) manufacturer employees are kept in the dark about sensitive information like this? At least, on that point, IPVM needs to do a better job of educating the market.
