This is great but I am guessing the government also wants a system that works. I have installed all but their latest systems and all have had high failure rates. Years ago when I was with a different company we did an install for one of Schneiders manufacturing companies. First problem is they bought their own Pelco equipment, which they got at one heck of a discount. Within the first six months of putting the system in we replaced most every camera and the recorder. Essentially we ended up losing money on the job. At that point I told myself I would never install an IP Pelco system again. However I still do use some of their mounts as the quality on those have not changed. Sad, really sad.
Did they take a stab at Axis too?
Is it taking too long to get your orders complete?
Ironic considering none of their cameras are manufactured in the US any longer and most are manufactured in Taiwan if not China
You know, those of us who've been in the industry for a number of years can't help but know all about Pelco -- who they were, their journey from private to Schneider, and who they are now.
What's crazy, though, is that more and more of the user community are younger, IT-centric people, and MANY of them honestly don't know who Pelco is...never heard of them. It blew me away at first, but the more I thought about it, it really shouldn't surprise any of us. Kinda sad in a lot of ways -- there have been some amazing and talented people who work(ed) there, but seriously...when was the last time you went into a Best Buy or something and saw a Nokia phone on display? Seems like a very similar deal.
Absolutely loved unboxing all of the "Made in China" Pelco cameras on a Govt install with "Buy American Plan" in place. (The name you know)
Built the company on Govt customers, gets bought out by Schnieder and flips to China to build for them now.
One should sometimes consider the past when buying and destroying a customer base.
