SNMP And Video Surveillance?

The Avigilon win/lose article turned into a debate about SNMP's role with video surveillance systems. One commenter noted that Avigilon cameras did not support SNMP to which Avigilon dealers responded that SNMP was terrible anyway.

So what do you say about SNMP and video surveillance?

Any experience with it? Any value? Any concerns?
